City captain Kyle Taylor was disappointed with the early finish in his side’s match against Ex-Services on Saturday.
With eight overs remaining, the match was called off and resulted in a draw.
Taylor’s team headed out to the crease first and signs were promising from the start.
Last week the skipper called on his team to “respect” Servies’ bowling attack.
Ash Clee and Nick Farrar began the innings comfortably before Clee departed on 19.
Farrar left and City were 2-54 when Taylor (41) and vice-captain Josh Martin (46) combined for a 64-run partnership.
“Me and Joshy, we just rotated strike in the middle there and just kept runs piling up,” Taylor said.
“I said to Josh the only way we were going to get out is if we got ourselves out and Josh went for a big hit and got bowled and I went for a big hit and got caught. We both threw away 50.”
Andy Sawyer added 30 not out while Ben Pears, in his second match, smacked 28 with three fours and two sixes.
“Myself and Josh Martin come out at three and four and we can just up the tempo, like we did on Saturday and see out the hard part,” Taylor said.
“Then Ben Pears came in and he hit massive sixes on Saturday.
“He went out there with two overs to go and we just said to him 'there's two overs to go and just go out there and show everyone what you can do with the bat.'
“Second or third ball he just went 'crack.'”
For Servies, Dan Hogan finished with 2-29, Jose McDonald 2-33 and Jarrod Burton 1-59 as City posted 5-197 from 40 overs.
With the ball, Farrar secured the wicket of Servies opener Andy Bartik for one. DJ Yeomans finished with 2-19, Karl Triebe 1-25 and Simon Butler 1-25 as Servies reached 6-130 before the match was called off.
“It got called off for some reason, they reckoned the lightning was too bad,” Taylor said.
“We had Servies in a bit of a trouble and I am not happy about it.”
The other match finished in a tie after Easts and Guyra both made 217.
Easts’ innings was set up by a 126-run second wicket stand between opener Ian Ranger and Clarrie Moran.
After Moran departed for 60, Ranger joined forces with Cameron Ashe (25) and added 51.
But when Ranger fell for 88, they crumpled losing their last eight wickets for 33.
Matt Finlay was the destroyer snaring five wickets.
Guyra were in reply dismissed for 217, Easts picking up the final wicket the second last ball of the 36th over.
