by nine runs
Woolpit suffered defeat in a tight, low scoring game — to record their fifth defeat of the season.
The match started well for the home side, with Will Parker removing Ashley Clark with the first ball of the game and Brock Price bowled out in the second over, leaving the visitors in deep trouble at 4-2.
Woolpit started to repair the damage, but struggled to pick up the run rate. Josh Davey hit the visitor best of 74, alongside a quickfire 34 from Wallis to take the Hadleigh score to 189-7 from their 50 overs. Nathan Crudelli finished with figures of 3-3.
In reply, Parker and Jack Rowett started steadily before Rowett was trapped lbw with the score on 50. Only Crudelli (35) hung around, but when he was out the tail were given too much to do.
With 14 required from the last over, Chris Wells hit a four from the first ball, but was out the ball after, leaving Woolpit nine runs short.
