Only a host of upsets next week would change the make-up with Karramomus all but settling its fate after defeating Numurkah.

The sixth-placed Bloods are a game ahead of their nearest-ranked opposition with cellar-dweller Old Students their opposition in the final round of Cricket Shepparton.

Chris Crouch backed up his 81 with the bat by snaring a wicket as Karramomus worked to defend 239.

But teammate Nathan Jones would do the most damage with the ball, tearing through the top order and finishing with figures of 4-41.

As Numurkah could post only 141 in reply, the Bloods went back into bat.

But the opportunity allowed the Blues a chance to redeem themselves via Reydan Lacuin taking a five-wicket haul in a brutal display of his talent.

Mooroopna was within reach of knocking over top side Kyabram and earning a finals appearance.

But the Redbacks were held together by Connor Hawes and Nicholas Chambers with a last wicket stand that pushed their side across the line.

Tatura overtook Shepparton United as opener Tom Casey took the match into his own hands.

Casey notched a half-century to help Tatura in its chase of 167 with Rajiv Singh and Paul Mahoney also contributing.

United’s Connor Green upset Tatura’s flow midway through the innings, disposing of Glenn Walker and Heath Fidock in quick succession.

But Tatura soon recovered to go on and take the points.

Katandra secured a home win against Northerners, with the Jets no match for the Eagles.

Northerners saw out only 31.4 overs with Scott Richardson devastating as he flowed through the Jets batsmen and finished with outstanding figures of 6-18.

Old Students secured their first win of the season by overcoming Central Park-St Brendan’s.

In a stable batting innings, captain Harwinder Singh starred with his 68 runs and Paul Tricarico’s half-century was also valuable.

The Students posted 8-203 in reply to the Tigers’ 167.

Euroa rounded out the winners with a stirling outright victory against Undera at Memorial Oval.

The home side dominated the contest with William Murray starring with the ball on day two.
