Take a look at the Central Western Daily's Top 20 most significant sporting moments throughout an unprecedented year of action.
Let's continue the countdown with the second-last instalment... picks 10-6.
#10 - Sibanda's stories a highlight for green and golds
It was a guest appearance you'll probably never see in Orange cricket again.
Zimbabwean recruit Vusimuzi Sibanda played a T20 Royal Hotel Cup match for CYMS during their final-ball win over Kinross, and while he didn't rack up the stats many would have expected him to, it was his tales of playing international cricket against some of the biggest names in the game that had the CYMS boys on the edge of their seats during the rain delays.
"It was an unreal experience," CYMS' bat Tom Belmonte said.
"He brought an aura to the team which was fantastic, and during rain and the lightning break, we all got together and he just spoke. He opened the batting against guys like Shaun Tait and Brett Lee ... I had to get his autograph.
#9 - Chris Barrett breaks Lions record
When Chris Barrett tore his pectoral muscle off the bone in 2017, he was pretty sure he'd never play a game of rugby again.
He was 33 at the time and had already amassed just about every accolade you could hope for in Orange City colours - he was an integral part of the Lions' undefeated run of 39 games which included a pair of Blowes Clothing Cup top grade premierships in 2012 and 2013.
It's not as if the club legend had anything left to achieve, or prove for that matter.
But after going under the knife and recovering remarkably well, Barrett reached an unthinkable City feat in 2020.
When he ran onto Pride Park for a Blowes Clothing Cup second grade local derby against Orange Emus on Saturday September 4, it was his 321st game for the club - more than anyone in Lions' history.
"I love this club," Barrett said. "Orange City's a big thing for my family ... my dad and two uncles were there when it first started and it's just been a massive family ever since for me."
#8 - Emus colts win premiership on the buzzer
One point. When it got down to the pointy end of the Blowes Clothing Cup Colts grand final, that's all which could split Orange Emus and Orange City.
Emus ran out 26-25 winners after an on-the-buzzer conversion from Alex Brien put the side one point up following a line-breaking Josh Dominello try with only a minute to go.
The two sides had been neck-and-neck all game, mirroring a season where the Emus colts had registered a draw and a one-point win over the Lions, and on Saturday at Wade Park they still couldn't be split.
With one last attacking push, Dominello burst through the pack, Brien converted on the buzzer and Emus were one-point winners, leaving Emus skipper Lewis Dunshea "over the moon". "You couldn't have asked for a better game of footy. Boys from City put out a hard yard and so did we and we just came out on top," he said.
#7 - Morrish's men claim title by default
When Ed Morrish and Shaun Grenfell dragged Orange City out of a near-impossible position in their BOIDC qualifying semi-final victory over Cavaliers at Wade Park on Sunday March 3, they thought they gave their team a grand-final berth.
What they didn't realise is that when the duo took the last seven wickets against Cavaliers, including the key scalp of Bailey Ferguson, it would mean they'd be crowned BOIDC champions.
The board made the decision to cancel the competition due to the coronavirus, leaving Orange City champions as the first side into the grand final.
The Warriors were handed victory following their nail-biting three run win, becoming the first - and subsequently only - team to win through to the BOIDC grand final.
"I knew they were calling the meeting tonight and had a feeling they'd give it to us but I don't know how to feel about it," Skipper Ed Morrish said. While Morrish said it didn't really feel like a third win on the trot, his men could still be happy for their efforts during the season.
"The boys will be happy, they're super proud of their efforts during the year and they should be super proud," he said.
#6 - Western Rugby League proposal for combined comp
Rugby league officials in the Central West shocked bush footy fans in the wake of the winter this season, announcing the potential merger of Group 10 and Group 11 in the near future.
While it was confirmed there will be no changes made to the upcoming 2021 Group 10 and 11 competitions across all grades, clubs across the region were given the chance on Sunday to give their feedback on what form a merged western competition would look like in future years.
One proposal put forward by NSWRL is for Group 10 and 11 to merge into a 15-team competition featuring three conferences of five teams, where the top two finishers in each conference would progress to the finals along with the two next-best third placed finishers.
Group 10 president Linore Zamparini and his committee had other proposals laid out by Western Region manager Peter Clarke.
"The clubs had some input and they've decided that it would be a good concept, but not in 2021. They want to start putting some things into place to get some heavy discussion going on it during 2021, so they could look at the possibility of something happening in 2022," he said.
