Bermagui’s bowling attack kept Tathra in check on Saturday.
The visiting Sea Eagles were dismissed in the 35th over, all out for just 125 runs.
However, Tathra fired right back with their own display with the ball to retain their place at the top of the leaderboard, cutting down Bermi’s batting order in the 37th over, all out for 91.
When opener Pete Bennett was caught for a duck and Chris Dwyer followed soon after on just three runs, things looked grim.
However, 22 runs by Jakome Roberts-Charlton and a further 20 by Ben O’Reilly steadied the ship.
Sixteen to Adam Blacka and a team-best 23 by Tynan Taylor gave the visitors a fighting chance, while the tail end was cleaned up pretty cheaply by the Bermagui bowling attack.
Dillon Smith led the charge with three wickets, while Jake Cooper picked up a double.
However, with the roles flipped, Bermagui provided little resistance with the bat as Jayden Heyhorn cut swathes into the home roster.
Heyhorn cleaned up the top three batsmen for just 20 runs.
Elijah Blair top scored with 25 before being caught and bowled by Roberts-Charlton.
The tail order clinged to the crease, but wickets fell steadily with two to Ben O’Reilly and a further two to Roberts-Charlton.
In more premier division play, the Bega-Angledale Bulls were also able to put on a win, dropping just one wicket in a victory over Eden.
The result looks a little odd with the Bulls’ 1/134 bettering Eden’s 7/166, but it was due to a rain delay.
Bega were set a revised target after Saturday’s storms forced an eight-over delay to play.
In the ladies competition, Tathra now leads after a win over Eden.
A half-century to Sharna Mitchell was massive in getting Tathra on top after Eden openers Jessie Mudaliar and Jemma Pollock had posted a partnership of 93 not-out.
Tathra had cleaned up a series of late wickets to have the hosts at 7/117 after their 20 overs.
Eden then claimed some cheap wickets, but a late 14 not-out from Sarah McMahon helped the visitors to a 4/119 result with four overs to spare.
Kameruka also posted a win over the weekend, when they edged out South Eurobodalla by six runs at Dalmeny.
A Janet King 40 opened the scoring, while Jasmine Lefel chimed in a worthy 14 runs.
Judith Orman also chipped 14 runs, while the Kameruka side also dropped a couple of ducks to the Euro bowling attack.
The visitors finished 5/92 after the 20 overs, but were able to contain South Euro to a 6/86 finish.
Melanie Tiffen hit 34 not-out, while the Kameruka Bowling attack secured four ducks against the host squad.
Anna Martin led the charge with three wickets for just 13 runs.
