Meraloma won the play-offs of the British Columbia Mainland Cricket League, beating Richmond by 163 runs.

Meraloma batted their opponents out of the match by posting 245 for 5 in their 50 overs. A third-wicket stand of 138 between Jason Sandher (61) and Andrew Downs (58*) was the cornerstone of the innings, although it ended when Downs had to retire hurt with a broken hand.

Richmond were never in the hunt and were bowled out for 82 in 32.3 overs. Iain Dixon (4 for 19) did the early damage along with Kevin Sandher (3 for 10).
