The gap between the best and the rest in Premier C was extended further but the top of the table clash at Mt Eliza was where attention was first focused.
Old Ivanhoe’s footballers would be familiar with Peninsula’s playing ground from their AGS days and the Hoes used the middle quarters to perfection to run out 47 point winners to stay third on percentage. Five goals from Thompson for the visitors was the stand out performance.
Monash Blues took no prisoners on their visitor to Gordon Barnard, beating Old Camberwell by 61 points. Four goals to Hardiman was the leading scoring for the Blues, whilst the Wellers are stuck in the bottom two without a win this year.
Marcellin demonstrated just how good they can be with a remorseless display at home to thrash a disappointing Therry Penola by 155 points. It has been a long time since Therry suffered a loss like this as they managed just six goals for the day. Jarrod Carlson was in everything and ended the day with five goals to lock in the three votes. Therry at 3-3 seemingly are now a part of the rest, and they are a long way off the top four on this type of performance.
Oakleigh are making a case that it should be the Krushers that are considered the best of the rest after they came away from PEGS with a 61 point win. The loss leaves the Bombers on the bottom of the ladder, without a win after six rounds. Bromley booted six goals for the Krushers in the win that sees them move up to sixth.
Old Haileyburians showed they can’t be discounted this year with a strong 22 point win at Williamstown CYMS’s Fearon Reserve. The CYs played good footy throughout but ultimately couldn’t prevent the Bloods from scoring with their huge forward half possession. Molan’s five goals not enough to get the CY’s their second win.
