Tamworth has finished the year on a high in the Col Dent Shield with a 32-run win over Maitland Gold at Riverside 1.
The under 17s competition will break over Christmas now after Tamworth scored their second win of the season on Sunday.
After a shaky start, the ship was steadied primarily by Harry Lewington.
The No. 4 came in to bat with the score at 2-14 and in the blink of an eye it was 3-16.
However, a patient 37 from 84 balls from Lewington saw Tamworth's score move to 76 when the second drop was the sixth wicket to fall.
Lewington was out to Jaxon Brooks (2-28) who claimed two wickets for Maitland Gold alongside Rywin Nock (2-20) and Izaac Coyle (2-14).
Tom Aitken was Tamworth's next best batsman. His 21 helped the home side reach 131.
For Maitland, a number of batsman were able to get a start but none were able to convert those starts into a big score.
Five batsmen made it into double digits but none got past 20 with Brooks (16) top-scoring.
Like the runs, the wickets were shared around in the second innings.
Aitken was the best of the lot with an economical 3-20 from 10 overs.
Ryan Stewart (2-8), Lachlan Clydsdale (2-10) and Harrison Mills (2-29) were also among the wickets for Tamworth.
The bowling unit helped Tamworth get over the line in the 36th over as Maitland Gold were bowled out for 99.
The under 17s Central North representative competition - along with the under 11s, under 13s and under 15s competitions - will return on January 30 next year.
Finals will the be played throughout February.
