Mowbray capitulated early on Sunday morning to start out its Greater Northern Cup season with one of the lowest female scores ever recorded.
Amid a series of back-to-back T20 openers across one North and three North-West venues, one result stood out for all of the wrong reasons after Sheffield plundered out a dire Mowbray for just 17.
Dana Lester carried the Eagles stoically through last season, backing up 376 runs at nearly 42 with an unbeaten 29 at this year's first hitout.
But when the captain folded for only two at the start of the third over leg before, so did the rest of the side.
And it could have been far worse following seven wides been given away when just nine runs came off the bat.
Susie Beattie proved to be the chief destroyer with 3-6 that aided Sheffield to grab a 10-wicket win 38 balls later.
Mowbray appeared to be feeling the effects for the second of the double-headers.
Latrobe scored 3-118 from an 84-run opening stand.
Sascha Lowry landed 40 before ending the partnership with Kate Chaplin, left on 48 not out in the end.
Mowbray moved to 1-35 but the fall of Cassie Blair (12) and Lester (10) once again sparked a collapse that were reliant of 17 Demons wides to finish all out for 51.

Latrobe's Rachel Kirkwood nailed the Eagles' coffin late with 3-0 from eight balls.
Launceston displayed rare form from the outset to claim a clinical 60-run victory over hosts Burnie Hurricanes.
It was the tale of two teams when the Lions piled on the runs whereas the Hurricanes batters somehow struggled on the same wicket.
Victoria Geale led the way with a superb 58 not out off 62 balls to guide Launceston to an above-par 2-126.
With Geale well on top of the Burnie attack, co-captain Lynn Hendley early on was steady with 20 and Charlotte Layton hit an unbeaten 16.
Launceston bowlers then ripped through the top-order in the first eight overs to reduce the Hurricanes to 5-26.
They never recovered and settled for 9-66 after 20 overs.
Geale headlined the front four with the ball to earn 3-18, with teammates Stacey Norton-Smith (2-8), Georgie Nicolson (2-11) and Mary Broadhurst (2-16) producing miserly four-over spells.
The Lions begun strongly against Devonport as well, restricting the Orions to 5-45.
Rebekah Illingworth was in fine form with 2-6 as was a wicketless Geale, conceding only two runs off four overs.
Devonport seamer Steph Shaw went one better to rip through the rival batting card with a devastating 5-10.
Launceston lost wickets at regular intervals and at 7-31 looked in serious danger off falling short of the low tally, but managed to hang on for a nailbiting one-wicket win.
Meanwhile, even a dogged Emily Nunn carrying the bat for Riverside was not enough to pinch another upset win.
The Blues caused an early boilover with the brief return of Emma Manix-Geeves last start over South Launceston and was on target to do the same pursuing five-an-over against Latrobe with Nunn picking up the slack.
The opener would amass a disciplined 47 from 59 balls.
Riverside had reached 0-51 at the halfway mark of its T20 innings. But the loss of four wickets for 19 runs in 28 balls proved a huge setback.
The Blues needed 20 off the last three overs, but just five singles in back-to-back overs left them too much to do in the death over that resulted in an eight-run loss.
Sara Wilkin had taken 3-17 earlier, and along with Tayla Buchanan (2-17) and Katie Broad (2-18), the attack kept the Demons to 7-100.
That score was just in large part to a run-a-ball 47 not out from Lowry in what proved a huge day for the Greater Northern Raiders prospect.
Sheffield posted 4-132 to beat Wynyard, who finished on 5-71. Ulverstone scored a massive 6-134 to Burnie's 7-74. The scorecards for South Launceston's two matches with Ulverstone and Devonport were not submitted before The Examiner deadline.
