Gippsland Power held onto top spot after running away from Sydney Swans Academy in the last quarter to win by 51 points at Wilson Storage Trevor Barker Beach Oval on Good Friday.
The Swans stuck with their opponents early, but the Power kicked five goals to one either side of the first break to establish some breathing space, which they held through to three quarter-time before adding six to two in the last to turn a 24-point lead into a big win.
Bailey Humphrey was best-on-ground for Gippsland with 20 disposals, six marks, seven inside-50s and four goals, while defender Rhys Galvin (17, eight marks, eight rebounds) wasn’t far behind and Coby Burgiel (23, one goal), Max Walton (21, six marks, one goal), Jonti Schuback (23) and Archer Reid (five marks, three goals) were important.
