Struggling with injuries, an undermanned Yarroweyah was no match for an in-form Tocumwal on Saturday in the Picola District north-west competition.
Tocumwal took the honours by 139 points 26.19 (175) to 5.3 (36), with the Bloods showing no mercy after booting more than two dozen goals, including eight in the final term.
Daniel Rushby was named in the best-on for Yarroweyah in his 200th club game, while Nathan Congram, Ben Soule, Paul Massingham, Andy Jones and Geoff Benson (two goals) were also strong for the Hoppers.
For Tocumwal, Sean Logie and Keith Barron slotted 13 goals between them to also earn nods in the best-on lists.
●In the south-east division, Tungamah forward Ash Saunders defeated Katamatite himself on Saturday after kicking 12 goals for the hosts.
Tungamah, which sits second on the ladder, welcomed the Tigers to its den and proved too strong for Tyler Sprunt and Matt Dwyer’s charges, winning 29.12 (186) to 9.6 (60).
The Bears were dominant from the outset, jumping out to a 28-point lead at quarter-time, before a 19-goal second half blew the contest open and well out of reach of the travelling Tigers.
For the visitors it was more or less a one-man show with Brodie McDonald kicking five of his side’s nine goals.
The Tigers, who have only won one game this season, are now cemented in seventh place and are two wins behind their closest rivals.
●Next week: After a week off with a bye, Strathmerton will looking to fight hard against Berrigan, with both teams sitting level on four wins each.
Yarroweyah faces a tough match against ladder leaders Picola United at home, while Katamatite will travel to Waaia.
