Pines dealt Mt Eliza a further blow on Saturday when it taught it a cricket lesson in MPCA Provincial.
And it was career defining for one Pines player who has always offered so much – Jake Prosser.
After taking five wickets the week before with the ball, Prosser walked out and clubbed his maiden century, eventually falling for 114.
Prosser shared a 100 plus partnership with his skipper Ricky Ramsdale, who made 103.
The Piners smashed Mt Eliza to all parts of the ground and easily covered its total of 186. Pines was eventually bowled out in the 81st over for 344. Harley Peace-Stirling also contributed 40 to the total.
Tom Ewing was the pick of the Mt Eliza bowlers, snaring 3/72.
The Mounties are now third bottom on the ladder, a game behind Pines and Rye, who themselves have struggled this season.
The end of the year can’t come quick enough for Mt Eliza.
Further down the highway at Moorooduc, Jake Prosser’s younger brother Matt was creating some records of his own for Langwarrin.
Matt Prosser top scored for his side last week against the Ducs with 66 and on Saturday, with ball in hand, he tweaked himself 5/62 to give him his best figures in First XI cricket.
Langwarrin recorded an easy victory over the Ducs, bowling them out for 179 in reply to their own 7/274.
Ross Cordeaux top scored for Moorooduc with 47. Adrian Mack and Dwayne Doig each collected two wickets for the Kangas.
Crib Point put themselves back into finals calculations after recording an outright win against Heatherhill.
The Magpies recorded their second outright win of the season, having them again knocking on the door of the top four.
The Pies rolled the Hills for 138 and 87 with Brad Davidson taking nine wickets for the match.
Mornington maintained its pressure on the top four and in doing so knocked Baxter off the top of the ladder.
The Doggies are still not inside the top four but are just half a game from top spot.
On Saturday, chasing 152 for victory, the Dogs got there with four wickets in hand.
Ben Clements top scored for the Dogs with 43 while Brad McDonald was next best with 42.
Dale Irving was at his best with the ball for Baxter with 5/31 from 21 overs but it still wasn’t good enough to hand his side victory.
Peninsula Old Boys did all it needed to to get the 12 points against Rye and claim top spot on the ladder.
Resuming on the second day at 2/34, the Old Boys managed to get to 3/144 before sending Rye back in in a quest for outright victory.
Rye finished with 1/56 before stumps were drawn.
Long Island maestro Scott Phillips was at it again on Saturday, this time bowling his side to victory against Sorrento.
After top scoring with the bat last week with an unbeaten 73, he took the new ball on Saturday and picked-up 6/49 to help his side bowl out the Sorras for 171. It gave the Islanders a 100-run victory.
