Catani also consolidated its position in the top five with a comfortable victory over Lang Lang, 12-8 (80) to 5-9 (39).
The Tigers were difficult to shake early, entering half time trailing by just 14-points and giving themselves every chance of causing an upset.
The Blues put to bed any hopes with four goals to one in the third term to create a handy buffer before controlling the final term kicking three goals to one.
Owen Fitzpatrick booted five goals, while Tom Keily chipped in with three majors. Dylan Williams, Paul Pattison and Nicholas Visser also helped the Blues kick away in the second half.
Joseph Dalgleish, Jake Dwyer, Stuart Casey. Josh Brown and Aidan Nooy led a gallant first half effort from the Tigers.Warragul & Drouin Gazette
Longwarry consolidated its position in the top five with a big win over Nilma-Darnum, 24-17 (161) to 5-6 (36).
Playing in front of its 1968 premiership heroes and no doubt looking to repeat that history some 50 years on, the Crows were dominant from the outset with a six goal to one first term laying the foundation for a big win.
The Bombers responded with four goals in a competitive second term, but the Crows were still able to extend their lead with another six goals giving them a comfortable 46-point buffer.
The visitor could only manage two behinds from that point as it got ugly, with Crows coach Daniel Fry feasting on the Bombers defence to finish with a bag of 12 goals.
Five goals in the third term had the match in the Crows keeping, and they didn’t let up as they steered through another seven majors in the final quarter.
Riley Rundell and Braydon McHugh each chipped in with three majors, while ruckman Nicholas Redley gave f1rst use to the likes of Josh Bourke,Russell Lehman, Aaron Serong and Danny Wells.
It was a disappointing result for the Bombers, who are looking to improve and move towards the top five under new coach Matt Shorey. Chris Larosa, Nathan Campbell, Ben Campbell, Logan Deschepper, Dylan Cann and Sean Viotto battled against the odds for the Bombers.Warragul & Drouin Gazette
