WEDDERBURN inflicted the first loss of the season upon ladder-leader Arnold in Saturday's Upper Loddon Cricket Association resumption from the Christmas-New Year break.
Wedderburn put the loss of three early wickets behind it to successfully chase down Arnold's 7-118 as it answered with 6-126 off its 35 overs.
Wedderburn's run-chase was led by knocks from Steven Giorlando (38), Sam Carroll (29 n.o.) and opener Will Holt (21).
The game's top performer with the bat was Arnold's Henry McCullough.
Batting at No.4, McCullough compiled 57 and later chipped in with 2-27 off six overs with the ball.
In Saturday's other game reigning premier Bridgewater lifted itself off the bottom of the ladder with a 64-run win over Boort-Yando.
Set up by a 94-run opening stand from Tom McKinley (62) and Patrick Murphy (46), and a knock of 33 from skipper Harry McKinley, the Bulls cracked 4-168 batting first after winning the toss.
It was a target that proved well beyond the reach of Boort-Yando as it was restricted to 9-104 in reply to suffer its fifth-consecutive defeat.
Darcy Wood (3-14) and Bode Stevens (3-7) combined for six wickets for the Bulls, while Alex Cockerell (26) in the middle-order top-scored for Boort-Yando, which dropped to last on the ladder.
