The Cobras rolled West Bendigo for 111 in its second innings thanks to five wickets from Kansas Varker. Rogerson added 50 not out in the second innings to guide Golden Gully to 2-107 and outright points.

Brad Rowe made 47 for Emu Creek and Simon Marwood took four wickets.

In the final game of the round, Spring Gully (9-250) proved too classy for Maiden Gully (175). Jesse Marciano (63) and Joel Bish (60) batted well for the Crows on Saturday. James Fox (4-17) made light work of the Maiden Gully top-order on Sunday. Wily veteran Leon Beatty (75) showed some resistance.
