Well, it is only day one but the warning signs are ominous.
A dangerous Wendouree was tantalisingly close to claiming the first innings before a heavy shower forced early stumps at Eastern Oval this evening.
Naps-Sebas could only muster 53 runs before the Red Caps stepped up to the crease to launch their reply in a rain-interrupted day one of the Ballarat Cricket Association club firsts final.
Red Caps openers Cole Roscholler and Tom Reece remain unbeaten on 28 runs.
Their bowlers did the hard work first, completely obliterating the Naps-Sebas order.
Star paceman Eamon Johnson nabbed 4-25 but Anthony Beacham was most potent, snaring 3-2 off nine overs that included seven maidens.
Dan Scott (three runs) was the first to fall, leaving Naps-Sebas captain-coach Dan Davies to try and anchor the innings.
Davies put on 10 runs in a 21-run second-wicket partnership with Simon Ringin, who went on to finish top-scorer on 16 runs.
Fourth bat Kyle Eyers chalked up nine runs and then Naps-Sebas just crumbled.
Naps-Sebas lost its last seven wickets for just 12 runs.
Play was halted twice for rain, once break was declared an early tea, and about 30 minutes play in total was lost.
Wendouree will continue its hunt for a fifth-straight BCA firsts title - and Naps-Sebas its first ever - when day two of the four-day series hits Eastern Oval tomorrow.
*Meanwhile, Buninyong sits 7-133 at stumps against Lucas in the BCA district division one final at Dunnstown.
Lucas' Nathan Clarke was in lethal form, taking four wickets.
Bunnies' opener Luke Reynolds anchored the innings with a solid 38 runs.
Buninyong has 17 overs to close out its first innings when play resumes tomorrow with Nick Haintz (22 runs) and Todd Kitchen at the crease.
*Naps-Sebas has won a third-consecutive Victorian Women's Cricket Association premier seconds title after play was washed out against Coburg at Doncaster.
