City have maintained their outright first position on the Armidale District first grade ladder with a comfortable win against Ex-Services.
In the first week back after the Christmas break, City came out of the blocks firing with captain Karl Triebe securing the first wicket of Servies opening batsman Nathan Withnell for a duck.
Chris Wild's recall to first grade proved fruitful with the bowler snaring a five-fa, his second in his last two games.
His first wicket for the game came when Nathan Street was caught on 16.
Servies' new recruit John McKay made 35 with the bat before Simon Stubbs dismissed him.
Andrew Skinner added his name to the wicket-takers' list with Benji Marshall departing on 21.
Dhruv Patel made 11 and was caught off Skinner's bowling.
Skinner had a third with Nathan Lane then caught on two.
Wild then clhad his second with Jarrod Burton making one run before being caught.
Barry Lockwood's team-high score of 36 was brought to an end when Wild snared his third.
His fourth came in the form of Servies captain John Elliot who made five before being caught.
Wild's final wicket, and the last for Servies, was Sreejan Tarafder who made 14.
Servies were all out for 156 and Triebe lauded his side's bowlers.
"All the bowlers did a job, restricting the scoring rate," he said.
"They were travelling along quite nicely at the innings break, only two down for 80-odd.
"But after the break we put on a great strangle on the runs which caused a few mistakes and allowed us to get into their tail."
With the bat, opener Kyle Taylor continued his form with 95 not out.
He began their innings alongside Ash Clee who made 26 off Elliot's bowling.
But then things fell to pieces for a short while as Kieran Dennis and Callum McKercher went for ducks, Elliot doing the damage.
"I got a bit nervous at one stage, Ash and Kyle got us off to a flyer and then we lost three wickets for no runs," Triebe said.
"But then Andy Sawyer came in and steadied the ship."
Sawyer came to the crease and allowed Taylor to pile on the runs before departing on seven, Elliot's fourth wicket for the day.
Ben Pears was the last batsman to enter the fold for City and blasted 29 to chase down the required runs.
Triebe also applauded Kieran Dennis' keeping efforts after filling in for Taylor.
"With Kyle's wrist not being 100 per cent he did keep for us, and has been keeping for us, and been doing a great job," Triebe said.
"He got three dismissals as the keeper on Saturday."
