CDHBU fired up its finals aspirations by downing a dangerous Lockhart by 36 points at Lockhart on Saturday.
The Power cruised to a 13.19 (97) to 8.13 (61) win over the Demons, blasting them away with five goals to one in the second quarter after a lacklustre opening.
Burly spearhead Doug Lavis booted four goals and capitalised on the midfield dominance and class of Corey Smith and Jeremy Stevenson.
Key defender Sam Burdon was the Power’s best with a faultless display across half-back.
CDHBU hosts Howlong in the final round with the winner guaranteed a finals berth, probably against defending premier Osborne.
Power coach Brad Talbot was relieved to remain in the hunt for a finals spot.
“Lockhart is one of the trickiest trips in the competition,” he said.
“They play their ground well. It was a relief to get the job done.
“We have got a few things to work on but at least our finals destiny is in our hands now.”
The Power are expected to welcome back Sean Hanrahan (concussion) and be at full strength against the Spiders.
“We let an opportunity slip to secure a finals berth against Jindera last week,” he said.
“But we are ready to go this week and feel we match up well against Howlong.
“Both teams rely on their young talent and will be a cracking match, that’s for sure.”
In other matches, Jindera spearhead Ash Murray booted eight goals in the Bulldogs 100-point drubbing of the Murray Magpies.
And Osborne smashed Culcairn by 83 points with Luke Adams kicking seven goals.
