Barooga stormed to the top of the Murray Football League ladder after handing Finley another huge defeat.

The Hawks ran rampant at home, piling on 45 goals in the massive 45.18(288) to 0.0(0) victory.

Will Gorman (11 goals), Spiro Vourgaslis (eight) and co-coach Tyrone Downie (eight) all cashed in and took the opportunity to fill their boots.

As you would expect, all three were named in the best, but Billy Andrew (three goals), Callum Leighton-Daly (one) and Ricky Thomson (two) were also exceptional in the clash.

Barooga never took its foot off the pedal, slotting double-figure goals in every quarter.

●Mulwala moved into the top six for the first time this season in the Lions’ 13.14(92) to 9.10(64) win against Cobram.

Tigers co-coach Tim Garlick led the way with three goals for his side and Darcy McCormack also contributed two.

Garlick’s performance impressed after he was named among the best-on-ground, which included strong performances from Shaun Greenway, Scott Spencer, Tomas O’Sullivan and Jordan Crestani.

This week, Barooga will travel to Numurkah to take on the Blues, who are sitting fourth on the ladder, while Cobram will host Tongala in a clash between eighth and ninth position.
