ROCKINGHAM remains at the top of the Peel Football League table after a percentage-boosting win over Halls Head.
In the first versus last clash, the Rams were never headed and cruised to their 12th straight win.
It was a tight opening term as Halls Head slotted three straight goals,but Rockingham remained 10 points up at the first change.
But the damage was done in the second term as the Rams kicked six goals to just one to take a commanding 42-point lead into the main break.
Neither side could take control in the third, as wasteful kicking ensured the Rams could only muster 1.5 for the term.
But the match blew out in the final quarter as the Rams ran riot, scoring six goals to one in the final quarter.
By the full-time whistle the Rams recorded a 17.13 (115) to 6.2 (38) win.
The Lightning only managed four goal scorers for the match as they remain anchored at the base of the ladder.
For the Rams John New kicked five while Nick Groeneburg claimed four in the big win.
In a low-scoring affair Pinjarra kept their finals hopes alive with a 14-point win over Mandurah at Bendigo Bank Stadium.
Both sides could manage just one goal for the term as Pinjarra took an eight-point lead into quarter-time.
Mandurah responded in the second to kick three majors for the term as they levelled the scores at the main change.
Inaccuracy began to count against Pinjarra, but a late major ensured they headed into the final change with a slight six-point lead.
With the match on the line, it was Pinjarra who came up trumps, kicking two goals to one to take the 7.11 (53) to 6.3 (39) win.
Dominic Hardy was Pinjarra’s only multiple goal scorer while for Mandurah both Zac Podmore and Chad Humble had two each.
South Mandurah recorded one of the biggest comebacks of the season to claim a one-point win over Centrals.
Centrals led by as much as six goals before they were chased down in the final term in the 18.5 (113) to 17.12 (114) loss.
South Mandurah started slowly in the opening quarter as Centrals piled on eight majors but the Falcons hit back in the second with five goals to three to close the margin at half-time to 14 points.
The Falcons continued to chase in the third and again narrowed the gap to just one straight goal at the final change.
With all the momentum in the last, the Falcons came home strongly, kicking six goals to five in the high-scoring term.
Unfortunately for Centrals, the midfield ran out of steam as the Falcons claimed their seventh win of the season. Ryan Murphy kicked seven goals in the match while fellow forward Daniel Dalby kicked five in the Centrals losing side.
Falcons Rod Tregenza claimed six goals for the match and was well supported by Jake Ferrier who kicked four. The loss leaves Centrals battling with Pinjarra for the final place in the top five.
In the final match of the round, Waroona continued their outstanding season by demolishing finals contender Baldivis by 128 points at home.
Wasteful kicking by the Demons in the opening term kept the Brumbies in the match as the home side held a two-goal buffer at the first change.
But from there it was all one-way traffic as the Demons kicked 12 goals to nil for the term to give themselves an 88-point lead at half-time.
The Demons’ dominance was highlighted by the fact they had 24 scoring shots to just one at the main break.
Baldivis didn’t give up despite the hefty scoreline in the third as they matched the Demons with four goals for the term.
Waroona slotted another seven majors in the final term to ensure another big win 25.21 (171) to 7.1 (43).
Brumbies captain Michael McCann was his side’s only multiple goal scorer with three for the day.
For Waroona, Mat Thomas kicked seven goals while Alan Wilson slotted three.
The loss sets up an interesting clash this weekend between the Brumbies and Rockingham as Baldivis aim to prove they belong in the top four.
