Jeffcott won its first A Grade match for 2012-13 after a solid performance against fellow bottom-four side Charlton at home on Saturday.
Aside from a forfeit before Christmas, it has been a tough season for Jeffcott.
The home side batted first and made 5-146 from its 40 overs, mainly thanks to Jaron Dunstan, 34, and Mathew House, 29 not out.
Daniel Whykes was Charlton's best bowler, picking up two wickets.
Charlton was bowled out for 113 in response, with Daniel Thiesz, 44, and Andrew Wright, 30, the only two batsmen to reach double figures.
Jeffcott only needed four bowlers to get the job done, led by Nicholas Atkins, 4-21, and Matthew Berry, 4-31.
Top side St Mary's lost only its fourth match for the season, going down to the in-form Wycheproof-Narraport by six wickets at Anzac Park, Warracknabeal.
Batting first, the Saints posted a modest total of 9-139.
Tim Germano scored an unbeaten half-century, while Nick Coles and Ricky Allan took three wickets apiece for the Demons.
The visitors only needed 35 overs to chase down a brilliant win and confirm their status as serious finals contenders.
Opener Johnathon Grylls top-scored with 64 and Coles chimed in with a handy 32.
Donald took top spot on the Wimmera-Mallee ladder after defeating Marnoo by 71 runs.
It was a comfortable win for Donald, despite a sensational all-round performance from Stewart Macpherson.
Macpherson took 4-39 and scored 44, but lacked support.
Former Homers all-rounder Brayden Ison continued his good form, scoring 31 and finishing with figures of 3-34.
In the final game of the round, St Arnaud beat Brim-Kellalac-Sheep Hills in a nail-biter.
St Arnaud passed Brim's total after making 11 runs in the final over of the day.
St Arnaud was also victorious in B Grade competition, defeating Jeffcott for its first points of the season.
In other B Grade fixtures, Donald defeated Birchip, Brim-Kellalac-Sheep Hills was too good for Wycheproof-Narraport and Hopetoun beat St Mary's.
