Central Park-St Brendan’s, Undera and Kyabram are in the position to press for outright wins after securing first innings points in Clyde Young Shield B-grade action on Saturday.
The Tigers could only muster 107 as Magpies paceman Will Murray (4-35) made the early in-roads and Lucas Paul (3-13) produced a fine cameo at Memorial Oval.
Cam McGregor (24) top-scored for Central Park-St Brendan’s.
What looked a moderate total to overhaul for Euroa was made all the more harder by a fine Tigers bowling performance.
All six bowlers skipper Jackson Wright used claimed wickets, with Aidan Lloyd (2-8 from six overs) and Chris Linehan (2-2 from four) the pick of the bunch.
Opener Rod Jones and captain Brad Gleeson were the only two Magpie batsmen to offer any sustained resistance, each making 17 as the home side was bundled out for 75.
Undera dominated Old Students at Undera.
Students could manage just 90 in 40.4 overs as Steven Valentin (4-6) and Glenn Campbell (3-16) ran riot.
The Lions go into day two with a 30-run lead after finishing 4-120 at stumps, with Brenton Campbell (53 not out) leading the way.
Billy McLay’s brilliance has Kyabram on top against Katandra.
McLay cut a swathe through the Eagles batting line-up, claiming 5-23 in 11.3 overs as the home side scored just 96.
The Redbacks finished 2-142 at stumps thanks to a fine 79 from opener Jason Parsons and sparkling unbeaten 44 from the impressive McLay.
Evergreen batsman Paul Trevaskis made an unbeaten 78 as Karramomus posted 238 against Mooroopna at Mooroopna.
Trevaskis hit eight boundaries during his fine knock and helped lift the Bloods from 4-90.
Taylor Hall proved the leading light of the Cats attack, claiming 5-41 in 13 overs.
Shepparton United is within sight of sealing first innings points against Northerners at Tallygaroopna.
It was a deadset miracle the Jets reached 100 with No.10 Brett Sheriff surely earning a promotion after hitting five fours and a massive six in his 46.
Sheriff and Joey Perkovic put on 56 for the last wicket after Northerners had been reduced to 9-44 thanks to Steven Tate (3-17) and Sam Nash (3-26).
United reached 0-93 at stumps with openers Angus Lake (49) and Lachlan Watts (40) well-placed to score a lot more next week.
The clash between Tatura and Numurkah is delicately poised.
Tatura posted 116 and did a good job late in the day to restrict the Blues to 5-44 ahead of day two.
