An eight-goal haul from Jeremiah Antypas helped Marcellin move two spots to the top of the ladder with a monster 109-point win over Old Camberwell at Gordon Barnard Reserve. The Wells had no answer for the Eagles, who outscored their opponents 34 scoring shots to 10. Nick Adamson was the best for the losing side, who remain ninth on the ladder with only two wins for the season.

Old Ivanhoe has been knocked off the top of the ladder following a 45-point loss at the hands of Monash Blues at Chelsworth Park. The Hoes were a shade of their 2015 selves, conceding 24 scoring shots while only hitting the scoreboard 14 times themselves. Nicholas Petering continued his outstanding form, booting five goals on his way to a best-on-ground performance. The win leaves the Blues in second place on the ladder, while the Hoes fall down to third.

A 10-goal second quarter has helped Peninsula come-from-behind to record an emphatic 44-point win against Williamstown CYMS at Peninsula School. Trailing by 23 points at the first break, the Pirates piled on 17 majors to the CYs’ seven for the remainder of the match. Stefan Barbour snagged seven majors in the comeback, while Nick Blackney held up his end with five goals for the CYs.

Old Haileyburians proved too strong for PEGS in their clash earlier today, running out 34-point winners at Princes Park Caulfield. It was not all one way traffic as the Bombers stuck with the Bloods for the majority of the match, before a seven-goal to two final term put any doubt of an upset to bed. Corey Rich snagged four goals in his sides’ win, while David Forrest stood up with three majors for the Bombers.

Oakleigh produced a stunning 49-point come-from-behind victory against Therry Penola at W.A. Scammell Reserve. After falling to a 31-point deficit at the first break, the Krushers kicked nine goals to one in the second quarter to regain the ascendancy heading into the main break. The second half produced more of the same as the Krushers added another 10 goals to Lions’ six, with Aaron Cloke and Trevor Bromley the chief destroyers with 11 goals between them. The win keeps the Krushers in touch with the top four with a win/loss record of 6-5.
