Tasmania has dropped to sixth on the WNCL ladder following a dramatic one-wicket loss to ladder-leaders New South Wales.
After posting 200, the Tigers looked on track to claim their third win until a fifth-wicket stand of 82 helped the Breakers reach 8-200 with four balls left.
Star quick Belinda Vakarewa (3-29) removed Sarah Aley (29) and bowled two dot balls before no. 11 Stella Campbell found the square-leg boundary to inflict another tight defeat on the Tigers.
Earlier, the Tigers' decision to bat at North Sydney Oval backfired early when Meg Phillips and Emma Thompson-Flint departed for ducks.
Hollie Armitage (23), Courtney Webb (10) and Corinne Hall (23) all came and went to leave the visitors 5-83 before Longford all-rounder Sasha Moloney and New South Wales leg-spinner Maisy Gibson set about rebuilding the innings.

The pair put on a game-high 88 before Gibson was caught behind two runs short of a second half-century in two games.
Moloney made no mistake about her milestone, timing an off-drive to perfection to raise her bat for the first time this season before being caught for 59.
The Tigers' defence started brilliantly as Samantha Bates (2-31) helped reduce the hosts to 4-35 in the 14th over.
Phoebe Litchfield (44) and player of the match Lisa Griffith (65) swung the game back in New South Wales' favour before Sarah Aley's quickfire 26 off 23 balls secured the result.
