The inaugural Memorial Warrior Cup cricket match had all the ingredients for a successful event: a picture perfect Sydney day, an easterly breeze off the ocean, a healthy gathering of supporters and two sides ready to do battle at Christison Park, Vaucluse. Team East elected to bat after winning the toss. Good bowling and a couple of classic catches slowed their early charge. They were not to be denied, however, and at the end of twenty overs the Easterners had posted a formidable total. Needing 195 to win, Wests got away to a healthy start with a flurry of sixes. Cagey bowling soon halted the momentum and the Westerners ran out of wickets with 134 on the board. All in all, a high standard cricketing duel.
