EMU Creek blasted a club record score of more than 500 on day one of its round two Emu Valley Cricket Association clash with Axe Creek on Saturday.
The reigning premiers smashed 7-520 off their 75 overs at JG Edwards Oval.
The run-feast was highlighted by centuries from captain Daniel Chamberlain (145) and Simon Marwood (163 n.o.).
Chamberlain hit 26 boundaries in his innings, while Marwood's unbeaten 163 came off just 100 balls and included 22 boundaries and five sixes.
The monster score was set up by a 226-run opening partnership between Chamberlain and Shaun Cattanach (83).
"It was one of those days where it clicked for us," Chamberlain said.
"We got away to a good start, which set up the rest of the innings."
Veteran Shane Hamilton (51) also made a half-century during a 137-run partnership with Marwood for the fourth wicket.
The Emus scored at a run-rate of 6.9 per over, with Axe Creek managing just seven maidens in its 75 overs.
David Cannings - the eighth bowler used - took 3-82 off 10 overs to be the Cowboys' leading wicket-taker, while he also took the catch to dismiss Hamilton.
* Shaun Makepeace's return to the Spring Gully side helped the Crows post 9-251 against Maiden Gully at Evolution Oval.
Batting at No.6 and coming in after tea, Makepeace scored 111 in a dominant performance after the Crows had been sent into bat.
Aside from Makepeace - who gave plenty of chances during his innings - captain Jayden Mannix (27) and Andrew Curran (22) were the only other Spring Gully players to make at least 20.
Highlighting just how damaging Makepeace was, while at the crease he scored 111 of Spring Gully's 147 runs.
His innings included a 114-run partnership for the sixth wicket with Damien Venville, of which Venville made 14.
Makepeace's century was his eighth for the Crows and his second against Maiden Gully.
Paul Martin (3-50) - who dismissed Makepeace - and Simon Cole (3-27) took three wickets each for Maiden Gully.
* Golden Gully has given itself a chance in its game against United at California Gully.
United put Golden Gully into bat, with the Cobras compiling 9-231.
Opener Matthew Tierney (60) led the way for the Cobras, while No.8 Phillip Moore (49) just fell short of a half-century.
Moore's knock was pivotal in the Cobras lifting their score to 9-231.
The Cobras looked in danger of being bowled out for under 200 when they were 7-159 following the wicket of Shaun O'Shea (19).
But Moore and the lower-order dug in to add another 72 runs.
Wily veteran Rod Smyth toiled hard for the Tigers, sending down 22 overs for a return of 4-77.
Opening bowler Alex Collins also had plenty of work to do. He took 3-67 off 25 overs to go with three catches.
* West Bendigo will defend a score of 9-239 against Marong at Marong Links Oval after it won the toss and batted.
Captain Dion Prange (46) and Boe Bish (20) laid a solid foundation with an opening stand of 50.
Joel Purdy batted well at No.3, top-scoring with 71 for the Redbacks.
Fellow batsmen Ken Bell (14), coach Matt Dwyer (21) and recruit Michael Kervin (10) all got starts.
No.10 Bradley McHugh added a valuable 20 not out.
The star with the ball for the Panthers was opening bowler Jayden Laubsch, who took the season's first five-wicket haul.
Laubsch claimed 5-42 off 16 overs, with his wickets including the key dismissals of Purdy and Dwyer.
* Mandurang is in the box seat to defeat Sedgwick at Pearce Reserve.
The Rangas bowled the Rams out for 197, before going to stumps at 1-58.
The Rams had been reasonably placed during their innings at 4-161.
However, the wicket of captain Dustin Elliott sparked a collapse in which the Rams lost 6-36 to be bowled out in the 54th over.
As well as losing the six wickets in succession late in the innings, the Rams also lost four in a cluster at the top of the order.
The Rams had been 0-48 before falling to 4-74 soon after.
Elliott was solid at No.3 for the Rams, scoring 81.
He put on 97 for the fifth wicket with Jordan Knight (23).
Mandurang captain Warrick Behrens (0-30) shared the bowling around among 10 players, with Keiran Burns taking 3-33 off 12 overs.
