Clint Ralston (37), Kyle Porta (30), Lieschke (20) and Bryce Swift (19) all added great support. Clint Renner, with 1/12 off eight overs, and Liam Widdup, 2/33, were the best for Lockhart.
Osborne also pulled off a tight run chase victory over The Rock Yerong Creek at Osborne, winning by seven wickets in the final over.
For the second week in a row, it was Todd Hannam (66) and Aiden Ridley (58) who piloted TRYC to a competitive total that reached 5/171.
The Osborne bowling was outstanding, with Joe Perryman 5/23 and brother Ed 0/18 - both in eight-over spells - doing the damage with wickets and economy.
It was the start of a brilliant all-round double by Joe Perryman, who then went out and made an unbeaten 78 as Osborne won with six balls to spare.
Ryan Collins supported with 43 in a crucial second-wicket stand of 87.
The result leaves both teams equal with Walbundrie in second place.
Walla has just about put Holbrook's finals chances to bed with a five-wicket win at Holbrook Sporting Complex in a game dominated by the ball.

Holbrook won the toss and found batting tough against a fiery Walla attack, led by a brilliant spell from Joel Merkel who took 5/18.
The home side, after being 7/40, recovered with some late resistance from Robbie Mackinlay (24) and Tim Walsh (12) to be all out for 82.
In reply Holbrook, led by Lewis Bowen (4/18), looked like pulling off a miracle win when Walla collapsed to be 5/41.
However, some good batting by Jamie McCarthy (29 no) got Walla home with plenty of overs to spare. Walla is in fifth place going into the break.
