East Ballarat has sent reigning premier Golden Point tumbling out of the Ballarat Cricket Associations firsts finals.
The Hawks made relatively light work of Point in a semi-final at Alfredton, getting home by six wickets.
East Ballarat set up the victory by dismissing Golden Point for lowly 125 on Saturday.
Golden Point gave its hopes a flicker of life by taking a wicket before stumps and there were some nerves for East Ballarat at 3-65 on Sunday.
However, a 50-run fourth-wicket stand by Harry Ganley, 35, and Brad Whittaker, 19no, ensured the Hawks remained in control. Carl Haseloff opened the batting on his return and made a valuable 31 (five fours).
East Ballarat, which finished second in the home and away season, tore through Golden Point's top order to put the game on its terms.
Steve O'Loughlin, 19, and Nathan Bagley, 15, made a steady start for Point with an opening stand of 28.
However, the Hawks took a stranglehold with three wickets on 41.
With East right on top, the wickets continued to tumble with Golden Point 6-73 at afternoon tea.
It did not get much better after the break with Josh Richards, 34, and Dan White, 23, fighting hard to get Pointies to three figures.
Ganley put in one of his biggest spells of the season to get 3-17 off 13.2 overs. Ollie Hayes was again the biggest wicket-taker with 4-41.
