Longford and Trevallyn proved runs on the board aren't always the secret to success, with wins over Beaconsfield and ACL in the TCL T20 competition Thursday night.
Chasing the Swans' respectable total of 130, Longford captain Jackson Blair sprung into action, whacking 85 not out off 71 balls - his highest score of the season.
The 23-year-old wicket-keeper has continued on his form following a ground-breaking football season, scoring 228 runs at an average of 57 in T20s.
Beaconsfield's Tharushan Iddamalgoda collected his fourth T20 half-century with 60 off 49 in the first innings, eagerly assisted by Ramesh Nimantha's run-a-ball 26, while Bradley Arnol was the only multiple wicket-taker of the match with 2-29 off three.

ACL's total of 135 at University Oval was also chased down with relative ease by Trevallyn, courtesy of a stunning individual performance from Daniel Kirk.
With the ball, Kirk played a hand in the first three dismissals: a caught and bowled, a run out and a catch that found Tyson Miller, before the opening batter knocked up a 37-ball half-century with the stick.
ACL duo John Kedey and Danny Bennett proved their worth in the lower order, both collecting scores in the 30's before Trevallyn wicket-keeper Stuart Brown had a hand in their dismissal.
Rajeev Anand dominated with the ball to fnish with 3-13 of his four overs while ACL's Deepak Singh took two.
