Tatong played Warrenbayne at the Arundel St lake-end ground while Goorambat-Devenish took on Violet Town at Goorambat.
Warrenbayne won the toss and chose to bat against Tatong, and thanks to some tight opening bowling runs were hard to come by for the Warrenbayne openers.
Warrenbayne lost its first wicket with the score at 19 in the 12th over, and at the drinks break was 1-34 from 20 overs.
The Tatong opening bowling combination of Nathan Delaney and Andrew Dickson finished with figures of 1-15 and 0-10 from their eight overs respectively.
From there the wickets fell steadily and Warrenbayne managed to bat the 40 overs out to finish on 9-104.
Tatong captain Mark Osborne relished the overcast conditions and finished with 5-22 from his eight overs while Daniel Brunning took 3-7.
Top scorer for Warrenbayne was captain Paul O’Brien with 28 while Tim Sullivan and Sam Phillips each scored 19.
Tatong made the runs in 17 overs for the loss of six wickets.
Jamie Berry made 30 and Nathan Delaney scored 23 while Tim Sullivan was the pick of the Warrenbayne bowlers with 2-21.
No batting details were available but Lyndon Kubeil and Tom Forster both took three wickets for Violet Town.
Violet Town only took 11 overs to make the required runs for the loss of four wickets, and Lee Brennan top-scored with 31 not out.
All teams have now played eight games and Tatong is on top of the ladder, nine points clear of Tungamah which is on 30 points, just above Euroa on percentage.
Violet Town rounds out the top four.
This weekend Tatong will battle with Violet Town at Tatong, Warrenbayne will hit the road to take on Tungamah at Tungamah, and Euroa will be at home against Goorambat-Devenish.
