Batting first the Huntsman posted 83 all out with Dan Allen scoring 31.
Iwan Llewelyn took 4-17 and Neil Clode 3-21 for FUBAR.
In reply, FUBAR's run chase started lively enough with Scott Clode top scoring with 22, and then a flurry of wickets by Dan Allen with 4-15 caused a middle order collapse.
Somehow FUBAR managed to stutter home to claim the victory with two balls to spare.
In the the Crown Challenge Cup the following night, FUBAR's luck deserted them as the 404s dismissed them for 78.
Scott Clode again top scored with 19 as James Parsons took 4-5 as the FUBAR batters fell like nine-pins.
