The Gappers suffered their fourth outright loss of the season against a rampant Aradale outfit at the weekend.
After being sent into bat first, they could manage just 68 from 30 overs.
Aradale wicketkeeper Riley Wood led the way for his side, falling agonisingly short of a century when he was stumped on 98.
Wood was able to inflict enough damage for Aradale to hold a 100 run first innings lead and have a shot at knocking Halls Gap over again.
Opening bowlers Brent Tate and Travis Horvatek claimed six and four wickets each respectively as Aradale claimed an innings and 22 runs victory.
