Thorpdale continued their surge with a 45 point win over Boolarra in terrible conditions. The Blues have won the last three over Boolarra and were never in doubt with their fourth successive victory. A third quarter of four goals silenced Boolarra and the Dees had to chase all day as Thorpdale extended their lead to over seven goals at the last change. Boolarra, to their credit challenged in the last term with three goals to two but Thorpdale ran out good winners 12-11 to 6-2.Laurie Williams
YYN and Yarragon produced the lowest aggregate score between these two since 1957 with only 57 points scored. Yarragon were kept to their lowest score against YYN (1-4) since 2004. YYN kept Yarragon goalless until the last term but it wasn’t pretty football as both teams battled the elements. YYN should have won by the length of the straight but were inaccurate in front converting only six goals from 17 shots to finish 6-11 to 1-4.Laurie Williams
Hill End retained the Byrne-Fanning trophy after their second successive win over Newborough. It was a fighting Hillmen that Newborough faced and their second half performance kept Newborough flat footed, the Hills kept Newborough to only three behinds in the third while sneaking in a five point lead by three-quarter. It was game on in the last term with more goals scored this term than the previous three. Hill End booted a match winning 5-3 to the Doggies 3-2 to carry the match by 18 points. 11-8 to 8-8.Laurie Williams
Trafalgar kept Mirboo North to their lowest score since 2010 as the Tigers, last year’s premiers struggled to kick 1-3 in a low scoring effort, the last quarter being their only six pointer. Trafalgar should have topped the goals for the round but many shots strayed wide of the mark due to wild weather with a resulting 5-12. Five players shared the five goals.Laurie Williams
Yinnar made short work of Morwell East, doubling the score at the finish 7-10 to 3-8. It was expected that the East after their percentage booster in the first round over Boolarra would be a challenge to Yinnar who are ticking the right boxes at present. Yinnar jumped away from the East early with five goals from 12 shots while Morwell East laboured with a sole goal by the big break. It was never going to be easy after half time as the East matched Yinnar on the scoreboard (2-3 each) but the damaged had been done before half time.Laurie Williams
