The trio of sides are all log-jammed on 36 points after round eight, which saw Donald move within striking distance and Jeffcott blow its chance of taking poll position.

Donald’s Jake Leith fired 100 not out on Saturday as his side posted 5-172 before bowling out St Arnaud for 62.

Jeffcott could have moved into first alone with a win against St Mary’s at the weekend, and looked to have it on the ropes after bowling it out for 50.

But an equally poor effort in the middle saw Jeffcott make just 44.

Birchip lost just one wicket on its way to 130, chasing down Marnoo’s total of 125.

Wycheproof-Narraport took on Hopetoun, but no results were provided.
