HJ Starr and W Johnson were the stars of the bowling ranks taking four wickets apiece in a demolition of the Condobolin batting line-up.
Condobolin lost there first wicket in the second over, that of opener Michael Quin, caught by Greenaway off the bowling of HM Starr with the score on 17.
Adrian Milne and Bryce Kooper combined to take the score to 44 before Koop was bowled by Luke Murphy starting a revolving door that saw wickets fall at regular intervals, Condobolin all out for 58 with five of their batsman out for ducks.
Milne (24) and Koop (19) were the only batsmen to reach double figures.
In reply Grenfell were in early trouble with Charlie Mitton run out for four before Harry Mitton and Steven Holmes guided their side to victory
