Noorat's Gus Bourke may not have started well but he certainly finished strongly against Simpson on Saturday.
Noorat was too strong for Simpson, winning by 17 runs at Noorat Recreation Reserve in the South West Cricket Association.
Bourke, a top-order batsman, could only manage 7 runs before he was out lbw in his side's second win of the season.
But the opening bowler turned things around with 3-23 off his ten overs in the round eight encounter.
He said his team took a different approach after losing to Pomborneit in round seven.
"Last week we bowled a bit too short," he said.
"This week we bowled fuller."
Bourke was rewarded with his best figures of the season.
The medium-pacer gave credit to his opening partner and recruit Rory Baker who took 2-34 against Simpson.
"He bowled really well," he said.
Bourke also said he had been impressed by Daniel Kenna's return to cricket.
He said the keen golfer, who ended up with 2-21, hadn't played cricket for years.
The all-rounder said wicket-keeper Martin Wynd's five catches were also valuable.
"He had a good game behind the stumps," he said.
Noorat will face Cobden at home on Saturday.
Bourke said his team would focus on protecting its wickets.
"We got ourselves out hitting the ball up in the air," he said.
Meanwhile, Camperdown couldn't recover from its top-order batting collapse.
Harry Summer (1), Jordan Riches (0) and Shaluka Silva (1) were out early as Camperdown crashed to 78.
Bookaar lost six wickets as it chased down its target in 33 overs.
Meanwhile, a Michael Pegg century (103 not out) took Cobden to a huge total (2-258).
The match turned into a thriller with Terang falling just six runs short of victory from its 50 overs.
Opener Tyson Hay top-scored for Terang with 88.
Matthew Hanks 5-27 helped Cobden defend its massive total.
