GCA - Aradale finds itself with the upper hand following day one of its Grampians Cricket Association two-day match against Tatyoon at Moyston.
It was talented young bowler John Butler who drew first blood early, removing Andrew McDougall for just four runs and Matt Moore (10) fell victim to Brent Tate soon after.
Things didn't improve for last year's premiers, with Zander McDougall and Michael Harricks making no runs.
Sitting at 6/47, Tatyoon was in trouble and this time, didn't have any answers as Butler ripped through the lower order to finish with 5/34.
Tom Williamson made a brief appearance and claimed the final wicket (Henry Armstrong), wrapping up Taty's first innings on an uncharacteristic score of 91.
Jake Williamson was Tatyoon's highest run scorer with 26 runs and was one of just three players to reach double figures.
In reply, Aradale stands at 3/96 with opening batsman Travis Horvatek just missing out on reaching a half century after being caught and bowled by Ash Maconachie on 47.
Brent Tate (36 not out) and Ashley Jeffery (1 no) will return to the crease this weekend.
There was plenty of action on day one of the two-day clash between Youth Club and Buangor at North Park on Saturday.
The Clubbers started slowly with Steve Le Gassick removed for four runs and Phil Hall departed for two.
A late inclusion, opener Matt Delzotto hit out and made 28 runs before Tyson Carr had his measure.
At that stage, Youth Club was staring down the barrel at 3/34 however Robert Scott's 33 runs and Jamie Solyom (18) made sure the team wasn't going to lie down without a fight.
Cam Kimber smacked two fours late in the innings, with the Clubbers finishing on 130.
Not surprisingly, Jack Fraser (4/38) and Harry Ganley (3/18) were best of the Buangor bowlers while Phillip Brady chipped in with two.
Youth Club's Steve Le Gassick made up for his dismal performance with the bat, letting his bowling do all the talking in Buangor's first innings.
Le Gassick returned with the first five wickets, including danger pair Jack Fraser (28) and Tyson Carr (10) while Martin Jarrett was forced to retire hurt on 24.
Matt Healy chimed in late, picking up 2/11 and Buangor finished the day on 7/112.
Jamie Vernon and James Ives have a challenge ahead of them when they resume batting on day two.
Pomonal bowlers had yet another tough day at the office against Swifts/Great Western at Pomonal.
It was a run feast for Swifts/Great Western with opener James Devery (43) finding some form, Travis Nicholson (67) was also his ever-reliable self while Nic Clough (57) proved solid.
Further down the order, Jamie Bach (37) and Tom O'Neill (34) took a shine to the Pomonal pitch and the Combine managed to end their day on 9/277.
Luckily for Pomonal, it wasn't a complete disaster with Lee Oliver toiling away to finish with six wickets.
