A century by Kurri Kurri opener Daniel Foster proved the difference as Dungog's Maitland A-grade cricket drought continues.
Foster’s 108 and 43 to Shannan Attewell and 41 not out by Michael Gates were enough for the Kookaburras to post 230 after Dungog’s bowlers ripped through the tail.
Dungog’s opening bowlers Terry Drinkwater and Damian Keating both finished with 3-45. Nick Barham chimed in with 3-79
But Dungog struggled with the bat again with Stuart Reeves (53) and Brady Rumbel (30) the main contributors to the total of 139.
The shire’s other A-grade team Paterson clocked up their third win crushing Windsor Castle Stallions by 83 runs.
However, the Paterson batting line-up will need to lift as a unit with Brad Bidner’s 106 and 86 from David Puxty the stand outs with the remainder of the batsmen failing to make double figures.
Paterson face their stiffest test of the season when they host the competition’s other unbeaten team the Port Stephens Pythons at Paterson Sportsground on Saturday.
Dungog is at home to Raworth.
Dungog recorded their second win of the season with a two wicket victory against Kurri Kurri at Gresford.
The win leaves Dungog with a share of second spot with Fred Harvey Memorial, behind Belmore Hotel.
Kurri won the toss and batted on a good wicket making 7/145 in their 35 overs.
Opener Simon Cornell did the bulk of the Kookaburras’ scoring making 92 before becoming one of Andy Muddle’s three wickets.
Muddle finished with 3-17 from his seven overs and was well supported by Ben Osmond who took 2 -25.
Both spinners Adam Tymkiw and Tom Hojer ended with figures of 1-24 from five overs .
Dungog came to the crease and started well with a hard-hitting 40 from David Jenkins. Most other batsmen made starts but could not push on.
Will Brooker 13, Brad Skinner 23 , Adam Tymkiw 27 looked good before falling and Jake Hojer and Andy Muddle both made 13.
Tom Hojer finished the game with a well compiled 12 not out in a nail-biting finish as Dungog won with just two overs and two wickets to spare.
A 27 to Shaun Presland and 20s to Allan Faulkner and Adam Kidd allowed Paterson to post 97 but it was not enough to beat Fred Harvey Memorial’s 8/104.
Presland was the best of the bowlers with 3-19.
