BOISDALE-BRIAGOLONG showed no mercy to Paynesville, winning 22.24 (156) to 6.4 (40) at home.

There were 10 goal kickers, with Cal Egan leading the charge on six, and best-on-ground Daniel Stubbe kicking five.

The vital percentage boost will come in handy for the Bombers as they challenge the top four, facing Stratford next week and Lucknow after the bye.

Paynesville were score-less in the first, and were 71 points down at half-time. There was plenty of hard tackling as frustration mounted, but the Bombers had no trouble threading the ball through the opposition — Stubbe in particular seemed to all over the ground when he needed to be. Ben Haslam was best for the Gulls.

Lucknow gave up a strong start to lose to Lakes Entrance by 23 points at Lakeside Oval.

The Magpies flew out of the blocks early, leading by 36 points at the 1/4 time. However, the second quarter saw the game played on the Seagulls' terms where they kicked 3.3 to 0.1 and the lead was cut to 14 points at the main break.

The third quarter was fairly even, with the honours going to Lucknow kicking 2.2 to 2.1 and maintaining a 15 point lead heading into the final term.

The last quarter saw the dominance of Lakes Entrance, with the Seagulls kicking 6.4 to 0.2 to secure a comfortable win and top spot on the EGFNL ladder.

Gary Puruntatameri was deadly in front of goals with a bag of 5, while James Gibbs also had 3 goals of his own. Brett Carroll was named best on ground for Lakes, while Darcy McKendry, Alex Saunders and Jake LeMaitre were also named in the best.

For Lucknow, Daniel Evans (3) and Keenan Hynes (2) were multiple goal kickers, while Will Sania, Chris Hammond and James Sanford all gave solid contributions.

Orbost-Snowy Rovers' two first quarter goals would be the last they would score against Lindenow, who smacked their opposition to the tune of a 192 point win.

Lindenow were a force to be reckoned with, with the main instigator Darren Allen jumping to the top of the EGFNL goal kickers list with 13 goals. The former contestant from The Recruit was named second best behind last years' B&F winner Luke Dyer, who also kicked 4 goals of his own. Gippsland Power listed Harold Hood was also amongst the Cats' best, kicking 5 goals.

For Orbost-Snowy Rovers, Jarrah Nettleton and Jake Bellman were their sole goal kickers, while Curtley Nettleton, Charles Priestley and Max Herbert tried hard all day.

A NARROW win over Wy Yung has kept Stratford in second place on the East Gippsland football ladder.

The Swans clawed back in the final quarter to win 8.11 (59) to 8.7 (55) away from home on Saturday.

One side of the ground was clearly favoured — Wy Yung hit the ground running, kicking two goals to a single behind, but in the next quarter, Stratford kicked four goals to three behinds.

The story repeated itself in the second half, with the Tigers kicking five to one in the third, but the Swans managed to get enough momentum to stay in front when it counted.

Jack Bacon and Rodney O’Keefe kicked two goals each for Stratford, and crucial midfielder Regan Tait named best-on-ground.

Coach Shaun Mooney was Wy Yung’s best.
