Longford has got some measure of revenge for its premiership heartache amid a thriller that proved worthy of the TCL Premier League grand final rematch.
After Hadspen had belted the three-time defending titleholders back in March, the Tigers managed to hang on to a one-wicket win off a gritty fightback on Saturday.
But the heavyweight bout threatened to go the same way again when Chieftains agitator Thanuka Dabare had piled on 60 from 45 balls before Nasrullah Khan's wicket sparked a collapse of sorts.
Hadspen lost its last eight wickets for 48 when Yeshan Wickramarachchi first and Brad Arnol next both took impressive figures of 3-16.
Longford's chase for 127 began shaky when the Tigers fell to 4-48.
Wickramarachchi held together one end, but his dismissal for 21 left visitors in big trouble at 7-70.
Khan hit a resolute 27 but left Longford 16 runs of the target with one wicket spare.
It took a scrap from Arnol (11) and Alex Jordan (6) to win with nine balls left.
Beaconsfield finally tasted 40-over success for the first time in a stirring four-wicket triumph on the road.
Trevallyn captain James Whiteley (39) and Andrew Fitz (35) were the only home batsman that got away.
