Centennial swung the bat in the first innings but was all out for 50, making victory probable for RSL.
Mick Jarvis (5-16) turned in a powerful performance as he was near-untouchable through 9.5 overs of work.
When the bat changed hands, RSL took time to get going but was aided by a strong dig from Jared Clulow who finished with 24 not out.
Lachlan Rayner (2-9) did his best to save the day for Centennial but but was unsuccessful despite a handy six overs of bowling.
In the other clash, Goolmah made a bid toward legitimacy with its third win in a month, downing Coolah by two runs.
Goolmah batted first but looked rattled early on as it was 3-3 before Peter Doherty (39) turned the tables with a game changing knock.
Coolah’s Hugh Wesley (5-18) disrupted the opening innings as best he could, collecting five wickets and dismissing the middle part of the order.
After the break, Coolah looked odds-on to get the result as they were 8-80 with just six runs required.
However, Peter and Shaun Doherty would give Goolmah the last laugh as they each bowled the final two batsmen, helping their squad collect a narrow win.
