Swifts Creek enhanced their 2021 reputation with a solid 56-point win over Bruthen.
The Demons had a 15 point lead at the first break, which grew to a 7-goal lead by half time. The Bulldogs were kept goalless in the third term, killing any chances they had of getting back into the game. By the time the 3/4 time siren blew, the visitors were out to a 48-point lead and had the game well and truly iced.
Darren Allen bagged 7 goals for Swifts Creek, while Robert Cooper lead the charge for the home side.
Lindenow South flew out of the blocks in the first quarter to set them up for an eventual six point win over Omeo-Benambra. The Swampies stunned the Alpine Ranges, kicking 7 goals to zip in the opening term. But the mountain men fought back in the second term, bridging the gap and only trailing by 11-points at the main break. The visitors managed to get a bit more separation from the home side, leading by 14-points at the final change. The last stanza saw OB keep Lindenow South to a solitary goal, but were made to rue their wasted opportunities in front of goal, kicking 2.4.
Both sides had an even spread of contributors in front of goal. Russell White and Ross Ansaldi stood out for their respective sides.
Buchan showed no mercy travelling down the mountain to take on Swan Reach. The home side mustered one of their better final scores for the season, but their opponents were all out attack, with the Cavemen slamming through 33 goals for the game in a massive win. Due to the big win and despite their lopsided win-loss ratio, Buchan now boast a far superior percentage than Bruthen – who sit two wins ahead of them.
Matthew Dick, Jarrod Matthews and Chris Mathers collectively accounted for over half of the visitors goals – even though they had 11 different goal kickers – and Nick Sinclair provided more than valuable support. For the home side, Joel Waters and Peter Ward battled hard all day.
