Yarrawonga has extended its percentage lead over the other teams battling for a finals berth with a 122-point caning of North Albury.

The Pigeons pushed their percentage another 14 to 205.41 in the 20.19 (139) to 2.5 (17) hiding.

The home team now boasts a percentage lead of 70 over its nearest rival as four teams fight for the two remaining double chance positions.

Brad O’Connor kicked seven goals seven.

“It was a good four-quarter effort, we were consistent across the game,” co-coach Chris Kennedy said.

Boom recruit Mark Whiley continues to firm for the Morris Medal after another five-star display.

And teenaged team-mate Brayden Coburn maintained his strong form from last week’s Victoria Country game at under 19 level.

North’s Daniel Leslie was playing his 300th club game, 283 at senior level.

If he plays the final five matches, he’ll be just one short of Hall of Famer Stan Sargeant’s record of 289.
