Paragon chose to have a bat first, putting up 175 runs in 40 overs.
Jarod Toohey (50) was instrumental in his side’s opening efforts as he hit a pair of sixes before being bowled by Steve McGrath (2-20).
Jeremy Yeo and Mitch Keen picked up where their teammate left off and helped build on a handy total before falling victim to McGrath and Singer (2-12) respectively.
After the break, Woolpack wasted no time getting to work as an opening partnership of Rod Cooke (17) and Shaun Lumsden (41) made 56 runs.
Yeo (1-40) dismissed Stewart soon after which was one of the only highlights for him as he gave up eight boundaries in five overs.
Steve McGrath (50) stepped to the crease at 3-84 before belting 10 boundaries in a game-deciding knock that resulted in retirement.
David Lumsden (41) finished the job for Woolpack as it rapidly mowed down the total, collecting a win after 24 overs.
In the second division two match on Saturday, Home Decor defeated Barbarians by nine wickets as it took 27 overs to complete a chase down.
Barbarians won the toss and grabbed the bat first, making 170 in 28 overs, largely due to a huge knock from Dave Edwards (98).
Edwards hit 19 boundaries as he accounted for well over half of his side’s offensive production before being stumped just two runs shy of a century.
Josh Edwards (23) was the only other batsman who produced over 15 runs for Barbarians.
Din Senevivathe (4-21) was one of the best on ground as his bowling was one of deciding factors for Home Decor.
Matt Nuttley (50) opened the second innings with a half century, setting the tone for what would be a clinical, 27-over chase down.
Nuttley called it quits at 50 before Ashan (50) did the same, setting Decor up nicely.
Barbarians only took one wicket throughout the match as their bowlers were crushed from start to finish as over 25 boundaries were hit between four Decor batsmen.
Maskell (39) and Senevivathe (20) sealed the deal for Decor, earning a dominant win.
First and second grade will step aside for Christmas before returning on January 6.
