Newtown produced something of a Tweny20 masterclass on Friday night to book passage through to the McDonald's Megahit grand final.
The Tigers crushed CYMS by 10 wickets in a dominant showing at No. 1 Oval, barely allowing the Cougars a chance to score freely early before cruising to the target of 101 in 15 overs.
Steve Skinner was an undoubted man of the match, taking 3/11 from his four overs before making 61 not out from 53 balls in a commanding performance during the chase.
"We were stoked," Skinner said of the win.
"We knew it was going to be a tough game but it was probably a good toss to lose."
Rain leading up to the game meant the slightly soft surface offered a little for the bowlers, and after being sent out to bowl Newtown made the most of it early as CYMS' Brock Larance and Thomas Nelson found runs hard to come by.
Nelson was the lone CYMS batsman to show prolonged resistance but he was forced to play the anchor role for much of the innings as wickets fell around him.
Nelson was the sixth man out, falling for 33, and once he departed the end came soon for the Cougars as Mat Skinner (4/10) returned and finished things off.
The Tigers' strategy with the ball was key in the winner, as bowlers were rotated constantly and it was ensured the key bowlers completed their allotted overs at the right time.
Skinner said the amount of depth in the bowling attack makes that possible, as all the pressure is no longer just on he and his brother.
"I don't have to bowl those four straight at the end," he said.
"I can come on in the middle and tighten the screws in those overs and then we've got experienced guys like Mat and Trent [Smith] who can bowl at the end or in the powerplay and then we've got 'Pricey' [Lee Price] who can take the new ball as well.
"We've got a lot of options."
Price has taken on more and more responsibility for the Tigers as the season has gone on and after a recent promotion is now locked in as the opening batsmen after doing the job again on Friday.
Price may have struggled to really break free of the shackles at times but he supported Skinner well and finished 31 not out.
Newtown meets Macquarie in the decider, with the Tigers defending the Megahit title they won last season.
"We're going to be up against it because Macquarie is the form team in all formats," Skinner said.
Play in that match starts at 6.30pm on Friday night.
