Pete Bennett ensure the Bega-Angledale Bulls a bad day on Saturday.
Bennett was unflappable at the crease building to a commanding 118-run haul for the host Tathra team.
Bennett cracked a few good fours and some towering sixes on his way past the century.
Despite fellow opener Chris Dwyer going out for 23 the Eagles were already bordering 50 and when Ben O’Reilly was done for an lbw on 12, the hosts were sitting on 91.
A further 22 from Tynan Taylor before Adam Blacka posted 52 not-out meant the hosts were in for a big tally.
A quick 20-not-out from Jayden Heyhorn sealed the deal as the home team batted out the 40 overs on 5/276.
Liam Kelly secured two wickets with some good line and pace on the day.
However, the Bulls were facing a mountainous task with the target set Saturday afternoon.
Separate catches meant last week’s batting wonders Mitch Jessop and Rob Stevenson were out with 13 and 11 to their names respectively.
Unfortunately Robbie Ringland fell to a duck off a Pete Bennett catch and things began to look wobbly with the top order cast aside.
Alexander Eadie worked well to begin a middle order stand, but after Cody Hazelgrove-Danvers was caught for 17, Bega-Angledale’s tail order collapsed.
A series of three ducks finished the innings off in just the 22nd over with the Bulls all-out for 86.
Tathra also secured it’s third-straight win in the women’s game during a visit to Kameruka on Sunday morning.
The Black Cockatoos opened the batting and built to a commendable total of 6/126.
However, the Tathra batting order once again proved too strong in reply with the visitors finishing 3/131 with two overs to spare.
At this early stage of the competition Tathra sit undefeated, while the other three clubs are comparable, trading results with one win apiece in the opening three rounds.
In the premier division, the weekends results haven’t shaken the leaderboard, but have left options open going into the final three rounds of competition.
The Bulls slip back to fourth place outright with Pambula just four competition points behind and South Eurobodalla only a further two points astray.
Given the top eight spots will determine the make-up for the A and B grade splits ahead of the finals, competition points are critical at this late stage with teams down to eighth place still in contention for a top grade berth.
This weekend the Bulls host Kameruka at George Griffin Oval. Meanwhile, Tathra play host to Mallacoota at Lawrence Park.
In ladies Tathra at Dalmeny and Kameruka are in Eden on Sunday.
