They say the smallest totals can sometimes be the most difficult to chase.
Court House found that out on Saturday.
Chasing just 45 for first innings points in their two-dayer against Mornington, a top order collapse had Court House floundering at 5-18 after six overs.
But after limping to 5-34 at tea, they went on to pass the total without too many more dramas and muster 85.
Sam Doubleday was unbeaten on 33, after Brodie Cleal and Blake Small had done the leg-work to get them past Mornington's total.
"Brodie and Blake had a good little partnership to get us back some momentum," Doubleday said.
He wasn't really sure what happened early.
"We lost Oscar King in the first over and then Jayde Campbell in the second over and it just triggered a top order collapse," he said.
Ben Hennessy was at one stage on a hat-trick and had 4-8 after his first five overs.
Earlier it was a good team effort from the Court House bowlers.
"Everyone did their job with the ball and everyone took a wicket," Doubleday said.
He did single out Darrin Cameron who bowled unchanged for 14 overs for 3-17. Doubleday chimed in with 3-31, skipper Farran Lamb 2-1 and Cleal 1-2.
While Mornington managed to prolong their innings for 30 overs, it never really got off the ground.
They were 1-1, 2-3, 3-5 then 4-15.
Doubleday said once they got those first couple of wickets it felt like they really just had the momentum.
"Justin Carter batted for a while and tried to pull their innings out of the fire but the wickets kept falling around him," he said.
Carter (14) was the only batsmen to make double figures, Sandy Frend the next best with nine.
Batting a second time Mornington were 2-10 at stumps.
