Sam O'Sullivan starred as Newcastle City caused a last-round upset by skittling semi-final bound Toronto for 40 at No.1 Sportsground on Saturday.
The visiting Kookaburras, resuming at 3-20 and in pursuit of City's 94, lost 7-20 in the opening session with O'Sullivan claiming a direct-hit run out and adding four wickets to his day-one tally to finish with first-grade best figures of 6-22.
This result saw Toronto fall short of the minor premiership, staying second on the Newcastle District Cricket Association competition ladder and four points adrift of leaders Hamilton-Wickham, while the Sabres ended their campaign with a second straight win.
"Sam O'Sullivan just cleaned up," City captain Jonty Major, who also took 3-16, said.
"It was a good way to finish the year with a couple of wins."
No batsman reached double figures for Toronto in what was the second lowest total recorded this season.
