Following up last year’s win over Riverina, Piltz’s side ran its opponents off their legs to shock the big crowd.

“The boys were super,” Piltz said.

“We pretty much gave them a free licence and they gelled together well.

“Hume’s always been a good comp and we have shown that over the last two years with a couple of great wins.

“Hopefully we can keep this group together.”

Piltz singled out Brocklesby-Burrumbuttock’s Lachie Boyd for special praise after the match for running the water after he was named emergency.

“That’s the type of spirit you want in a group,” he said.

“It was fantastic.”

Long-time Hume league president Merv Wegener rated Myles Aalbers’ nine-goal effort as one of the best individual displays he has seen in interleague football.
