Romsey's Page and Woolf set about the run chase in cavalier fashion, despite opening bowler Nathan Sugden who eventually took three wickets.
Thriplow then turned to the spin of Carr and were rewarded with two more wickets that rocked Romsey to 86-5.
Romsey took the score beyond 100, but two further wickets and one a great Goodacre catch later the hosts were precariously placed at 103-7.
But Thriplow were frustrated by Owen and Mortlock who chased down the target, despite tight bowling and excellent fielding.
