Who said relegation battles couldn’t be exiting? Probably no one, however when you have teams fighting for their survival then you get upsets and heartache that other competitions just cannot produce. 
Premier B was up in lights however all matches went according to the ladder seedings. 
The closest result was the effort of home side Werribee Districts who fell just five points short of AJAX.
Old Trinity had the Inner FM team broadcasting their match with Caulfield Grammarians and the home side didn’t let any die hard OT listeners down. Old Trinty won by 19 points to retain top spot and leave Caulfield perilously close to the relegation spots. 
Trying to jump out of one of those relegation places were Parkdale Vultures who had the difficult task of a trip to Old Brighton. The Vultures were unable to score until the second quarter, with the Tonners recording a 49 point win. 
In a low scoring match Old Melburnians accounted for the visiting Old Haileyburians by 19 points at the Junction Oval.
St Kevin’s confirmed they would play finals in emphatic fashion over Fitzroy. The Roys were coming off two wins, but were no match for SKOBs who won at TH King by 59 points.
In Premier C,  Banyule claimed a two point win at home over PEGS to keep their season alive. The Bears remain 9th however are on level points with Old Camberwell. The Bears withstood a late Bombers comeback, but at this time of year a win is a win. 
Old Ivanhoe and Monash Blues had blockbuster clash written all over it and it was the home side that extinguished the Blues by 31 points. In doing so, Old Ivanhoe moved into the top two with Monash Blues dropping to third. 
Oakleigh continued their fine form and their march up the ladder in tact with an 8 goal win over relegated NOBs-St Pats. The Division 1 premiers of 2012 will return to that section after just a season in Premier C. Oakleigh have now moved to 7th.  
Old Camberwell are now deep in a relegation dogfight with the Bears. Another home loss today to Marcellin by 22 points. The Wellers now just 2.93% ahead of Banyule. 
Peninsula at one point looked destined to cause the upset of the day as they held sway over the visiting table topping Mazenod. However the Nodders see no reason to drop a game now and why would they as they put on a final quarter burst to run out 21 point winners.
