REIGNING Ovens and King premiers Glenrowan fired a shot across the bows of the competition on Saturday, dismantling Bright by 81 points.
The Tigers jumped out of the blocks and never looked back, going on to bank a 19.16.130 to 6.13.49 victory.
Glenrowan had 10 goals to two at half time and didn’t let up after the main break, piling on a further nine in the second half for a welcome percentage boost.
Chris Sussyer bagged five goals for the Tigers but he had plenty of mates on the scoreboard, with Matthew Robinson and Mitchel Kilner booting four majors apiece.
Ricky Weimer led all comers for Bright with three goals.
Moyhu saw off a challenge from the pesky Benalla All-Blacks to bank their fourth win of the season to sixth on the ladder and outside the top five on percentage alone.
The Hoppers built on their 10-point half time lead in the third quarter, extending the margin to 26 points at the last change.
Both sides kicked three goals in a to-and-fro final quarter, but the Hoppers got the last laugh through Jeremy Wilson, who finished with five goals for the day.
Matthew Thrum kicked a goal and was one of Moyhu’s best, while Michael Donehue kicked three goals in his first match of the season for the All-Blacks.
Goorambat and District charged home to steal a win from Greta, holding the Blues to one goal in the final quarter and denying them a stunning upset in the process.
Greta charged out of the blocks in the first quarter, booting eight goals to two for a 36-point lead, but kicked just four more for the game.
