Box Hill ran Eley Park Sharks to four points in round 17 and as a result Cam Liston and Ben Pearce get the 3 votes and 2 votes. Mitch Saunders who was so hot early, second at halfway on 11 votes finally secures another vote for the Sharks. But hang on Jordan Lampi takes a 2 vote lead collecting the maximum 3 votes against North Brunswick. Lampi leads on 20 votes, Renshaw is on 18 votes and is the only player who can beat him.

Round 15 – Another player making his way slowly up the leader board is David Bennett of Eley Park Sharks and secures 3 votes to move to 13 votes and 4th place over all. Renshaw only gets the one from the Sharks’ clash with Chadstone. Are they stealing votes of each other? Look out though we have a new leader. Jordan Lampi gets the 3 votes from Point Cook’s win over West Brunswick. Bill Irving’s 2 votes from the same game for the Magpies moves him up to 12 votes and equal 5th.
