Over at Vauxhall Road Takapuna batted first and made a decent fist of it in the 30 over match.
Brad Cachopa anchored the innings for the Takapuna side top scoring with 47 off 57 balls.
The rest of the batting line up chimed in with helpful contributions, Elliott Herd putting an exclamation mark on the total with 28 off 11 balls including four sixes.
North Shore put up a valiant effort in their chase with Graeme Beghin scoring 42 off 37 but the Shore came up just short.
Tim Duncraft's superb late effort with the bat smashing two sixes not quite enough to get the win after being run out on the final ball with two required for victory."
Congratulations to Michael Olsen on his 100th Premier game for North Shore yesterday.
