Nulla batted first and posted a total of 198 on the back of strong innings from Adam Stutz (51), Dan Baker (36), Lloyd Black (26) and Shane Crouch (24). Six Nulla players reached double figures.
Hayden Williams (3/25) did the majority of the damage with the ball for South West Rocks while Heath Askew (2/19) and Mitchell Smith (2/34) also chimed in.
Smith backed up his efforts with the ball to record 14 as an opening batsmen and Matt Ryan (19), Cyril Davis (29) and Michael Fotheringham (26) contributed to the run chase but ultimately South West Rocks fell for 158 in the 35th over, 41 runs short of victory.
