St Kevins refused to take their foot off the accelerator ahead of finals as they dispatched Caulfield Grammarians to the tune of 128 points at Glenhuntly Oval. SKOB had contributors all over the ground as they piled on 26 goals to seven, with former Melbourne Demon Jordan Gysberts dominating with five goals in a best-on-ground performance.

Corbin Stevic kicked four majors for the Roys, while Charlie Dillon did his utmost for the Vultures by snagging six of his own.

A 10-goal haul from Jake Lew has led AJAX to a 69-point victory against Hampton Rovers at Boss James Reserve.

Due to a subpar percentage, AJAX are unlikely to make finals but can hold their head high and take momentum into the 2016 season.

Liam Riley was judged best afield for the winning side, while Redlegs’ Alexander Armstrong will be buoyed by his four goals heading into finals.
