Mt Clear pounced on an undermanned Wendouree to claim victory in the last of the Twenty20 rounds for season 2019-20.
The Mounties knocked over the Red Caps - missing key players such as Sam Miller, Cole Roscholler and Anthony Beacham - for just 98 and then chased down the target with seven wickets in hand.
