Five goals from Julius Waras-Carstensen helped Glen Eira to a comfortable 42-point victory against Aquinas at Aquinas College over the weekend. Waras-Carstensen was joined by BOG Matt Harris who kicked three, while Ben Adam was named the Bloods’ best for the second time in three games.

A seven-goal to one final term gave Canterbury a 26-point come-from-behind win against Elsternwick at Canterbury Sports Ground. Scott Fitzgerald starred with four goals for the Cobras, while Mitch and Nick Szabo combined for six. Julian Yeatman was the Wickers’ best and kicked three goals, but they sit 11th with just two wins for the year.

UHS-VU went outright fourth on the Division 3 ladder when they defeated La Trobe University by four points in a low-scoring thriller at La Trobe. Joseph Turner flicked the switch when it mattered, while Nick Devereux and Ryan Smith nailed two goals each for the winning side. La Trobe snapped a nine-game winning streak but will unlikely move from third position on the ladder before finals.

Swinburne University delivered Parkside’s 12th loss for the season when they ran out 48-point winners at Pitcher Park. Matt Greenwood continued his stellar 2016 campaign with another BOG for the Razorbacks, while Michael Muir performed best for the Red Devils for the second consecutive week.

Ross McDermott backed up the bag of 11 he kicked last week with another four against Albert Park, helping Hawthorn to a 49-point win at Rathmines Road Reserve. Jason Ince chipped in with three for the Hawks, while James Brick cemented his second standout performance for the Falcons from the past three games.

Power House kept their finals hopes alive as they came from one point down at the half to run away with a 31-point victory against South Melbourne Distrcits at Ross Gregory Oval. Allan McEwen and Collett snagged two goals each for the seventh-placed House, while Louis Beanland stood tall for the fifth-placed Swans.
