The Rockingham Rams remain at the top tier of the Peel Football League (PFL) ladder after burying the Waroona Demons by six goals on Sunday at Anniversary Park.
The two teams were neck and neck at half-time but the Demons failed to capitalise in the remaining quarters falling to the Rams 14.8 (92) to 8.9 (57).
Kicking off to a close start, the Demons were one point in front by the end of the second term but it was after the break that league leaders led a full onslaught with six goals in the third quarter before finishing with a 35-point win.
Stephen Snowdon was named best for Rockingham along with Rowan Arnott and Theo Adams while Dane Ugle was the Rams’ biggest goal scorer with four goals to his name.
Waroona’s Craig Callaghan, Steele Court and Joel Catalano were named best for their team while Alan Wilson kicked four goals.
The Baldivis Brumbies remain fourth on the ladder after crushing second last Mandurah Mustangs’ chances of playing finals football at Baldivis Oval on Sunday.
Brumbies’ captain Michael McCann was left alone in the forward line resulting in 10 goals and being named best on ground leading Baldivis to victory 19.13 (127) to 12.7 (79).
Mandurah trailed behind Baldivis by 19 points leading into the second half but were taken by surprise as the rested Brumbies booted six goals at the end of the third quarter.
Despite a late burst back by the Mustangs, the Brumbies powered home with another five goals and four points for the win.
Daniel James Kimberley was also named a best player for Baldivis along with Calum Anderson and Robert Carr.
Mandurah’s best were Nathan Lawler, Benjamin Cowdray and Shane Creevey.
The Mundijong Centrals just narrowly missed a spot at sixth on the ladder after pummelling current wooden spoon-positioned Halls Head Lightning on Sunday at Merlin Street Oval.
Centrals’ slow start in the first quarter was marred by its nine-goal second and third quarter effort finishing 27.7 (169) to 7.8 (50) and throwing any chance of the Lightning leaving the bottom of the ladder into disarray.
Mundijong’s best were Mark Miller, Brad Bootsma who also kicked five goals and vice-captain Adam Gajda.
Centrals’ Ryan Murphy and Daniel Wilson were the largest goal scorers of the match with nine and seven goals each.
Mitchell Royal, vice-captain Luke Kennedy and Dwayne Dobinson were named best for Halls Head while Tyson Phillips was the highest goal scorer with four goals.
The sixth-placed Pinjarra Tigers stunned the PFL on Saturday night’s game at Sir Ross McLarty Oval against the third-placed South Mandurah Falcons, claiming a win by four points.
The blockbuster match had the underdogs leading by the second half but restrained after a comeback by the Falcons with the Tigers narrowly in front by a goal into the last term.
The Tigers clawed their way to victory keeping their chances of finals football alive 13.6 (84) to 12.8 (80).
Pinjarra’s Luke Guthrie booted five goals while Jimmy Waters kicked three goals.
The Tiger’s best were Sean Starkey, Marley Woods-Hunter and Andrew Darnley.
South Mandurah’s vice-captain Rod Tregenza once again finished in top form with another six goals tallied to his name and the Falcon’s best were Tom Mcculloch, Cody Dawe and Andrew Haydon.
