Two games were decided in the final over in a thrilling round of Upper Loddon cricket.
Kingower held on to defeat Wedderburn Band by one run, while Newbridge needed all of its 35 overs to chase down Serpentine's total.
After being sent into bat, Kingower battled its way to 6-112 off its 35 overs in tough batting conditions.
Jayden Leach top-scored with 44 for Kingower, while Cam Perry (2-9) and Kevin Walton (2-13) were the pick of the Wedderburn bowlers.
Wedderburn Band looked set to cause an upset, but when Perry fell for 43 late in the innings the home side fell apart.
Needing two runs to win with two wickets in hand, Weddburn Band lost its final two wickets on 111 and Kingweor celebrated a one-run win.
Brett Wilson claimed 3-29 with the ball for Kingower.
Some late heroics from tailender Mason Storey lifted Newbridge to victory over Serpentine.
Batting at number 10, Storey made 16 not out to get his side over the line in the last over.

In reply, Newbridge struggled to build a significant partnership.
