Jeffcott won its second consecutive Wimmera Mallee Cricket Association premiership on Saturday, with a runaway victory against a luckless Marnoo.
It simply wasn't to be for Marnoo, whose day was perhaps best typified by the first ball of their run chase.
Chasing Jeffcott's total of 165 to win, Liam Whitbourne faced the first delivery for Marnoo, middling a half-volley toward mid-off.
Whitbourne immediately took off for a quick single, but was stranded half-way down the pitch when he realised his fellow opener hadn't left his crease.
Whitbourne tried to scrambled back to safety but it was too late. He was run out for a duck, setting the tone for the rest of Marnoo's innings.
Number three Brylie Cameron skied a leg glance a few balls later and Marnoo were in massive trouble, two wickets down and without a single run on the scoreboard.
Wickets continued to fall and the contest was all but over by the time Ben Duxson fell for seven runs, leaving Marnoo at 5-20.
The tail fought hard but it wasn't enough, as they finished all out for 59.
Patrick Morgan was the pick of the bowlers for Jeffcot with three wickets, and it was skipper Lachlan Jones (46) and Daniel Atkins (40) who gave the team a decent lead with the bat.
On a difficult day, Marnoo were also hindered by an injury to key player Stewart Macpherson, who tore his calf in the field. Macpherson is a key bowler and was also likely to open the batting, forcing a total readjustment from Marnoo when he was unable to do so.
Meanwhile in B Grade, Wycheproof/Naracoorte easily chased down Donald for a seven-wicket victory to seal the premiership.
