Wodonga's Dan Dixon hit 53 runs at number eight in the win over East Albury.

The awesome batting depth of the top two has sounded a warning to the other preliminary finalists.

Lavington became the only team to pass 300 twice this season, posting 6-330 against New City, while Wodonga cracked 9-267 against East Albury.

Six Wodonga players passed 25, including Dan Dixon (53) and opener Andrew Weighell (42).

The Panthers, meantime, had five batsmen score 40 or more, with Nathan Brown smashing 85 from 96 balls, including 13 boundaries and a six.

Sam O’Connor continued his late-season run with another half-century (72), while Andrew Mackinlay was unbeaten on 68, from just 64 balls.

Given Lavington’s depth, the number eight has had limited opportunities, smashing his previous highest score this season of 22.

The home team recorded a 154-run win, with Angus Kilby top-scoring with 42 in the total of 176.

Wodonga won by 33 runs, the Crows’ Will McIntosh with 4-87 and 71.
