Mt Beauty have hung on to second spot in District cricket after toppling Howlong by 24 runs in Howlong on Saturday.
Runs were spread across the board for the victors with Davison Mbindi racking up 36 and captain Daniel Saville contributing 31.
The Mt Beauty skipper said it was an important win for the side, who look to retain their position with two rounds before finals.
"With the bat we had a solid foundation pretty early on but we probably didn't make as many as we would have liked," Saville said.

"We knew if we bowled and fielded well we could centre and we ended up doing that, it was pretty exciting towards the end."
Mt Beauty look to welcome back players as they face Eskdale and Dederang in the last two games.
"It's such an even competition at the moment and each win is really important," Saville said.
Aaron Hoskin made 28 runs and took four wickets for Howlong.
