GCA - Aradale is set to claim maximum points tomorrow when it meets Pomonal as the final round of the A grade Grampians Cricket Association moves into its final day.
Pomonal's batsmen had no joy again last weekend, posting a paltry 74 runs in its first innings.
Aradale didn't have any trouble chasing down the total and eventually declared at 5/121 with its eyes firmly on an outright win.
Pomonal resume its second innings at 3/13, having already lost three top order batsmen in Rick Oliver, Nick Madison and Alex Malligan.
Nick Scott and Lee Oliver would be out to restore some pride for the visitors, who face another year of bottom place relegation.
They will need assistance from Robert McKinnon, Lynden Brewis and Luke Roberts, but face an almost impossible task of getting past in-form Aradale bowling trio Brent Tate, Matthew Baldock and John Butler.
Tatyoon is set to build on its first innings score in day two of its clash with Buangor.
Buangor showed plenty of promise last week, posting a total of 214 on the opening day of play.
In reply, Tatyoon has made a perfect start and currently sits at 0/58 with Andrew McDougall (28 not out) and Lachlan Laidlaw (27) to resume at the crease.
Tatyoon has plenty of batting depth and, barring a disastrous collapse, should be able to secure the points.
The pressure will be on Buangor bowlers Ben Hargreaves, Shaun Allen, Harry Ganley and Jack Ganley to break the partnership between McDougall and Laidlaw.
Although with premier all-rounder and captain Jarred Blandford, as well as reliable batsmen Andrew Ward and Darren Beer to come, Buangor face an uphill battle to stop Tatyoon in their tracks.
Swifts/Great Western will be hoping there is not a repeat of last week's wild weather as it heads into the final day of the GCA home and away season.
Sitting at 2/9 in reply to Youth Club's first innings offering of 96 runs, the Combine are currently in a precarious position.
Having already lost James Devery and Sam Cocks for no runs, it will be up to Travis Nicholson (six not out) and night watchman Jamie Bach (three) to get quick runs on the board.
With Gary Ranton and Rick Peters to come, the Combine are likely to surpass Youth Club's first innings total but it all depends on the weather.
If it is a damp turf wicket at Central Park, the Clubbers bowling attack led by Jamie Solyom, Steve Le Gassick, Cam Kimber and Jack Kelly will be set to pounce.
Le Gassick and Kimber have already picked up a wicket and must add to their total to prevent Swifts/Great Western from picking up early points.
Should Youth Club bat again, which appears likely, the pressure is on Le Gassick, Marcus Marrow, Tim Seymour and Matt Delzotto to make a decent score and prevent the Clubbers second loss in a row.
If the Clubbers are again on a soggy wicket and with Combine bowlers Marc Brilliant, Bach, Jackson Dark and Damien Scott in good form, the odds may be stacked against them.
Highlight of the round so far has been provided by Nic Clough, who scored an unbeaten century on day one to put B grade Swifts/Great Western in the box seat against Chalambar.
