BULLIOH scored its third successive 100-plus point victory by thrashing previously unbeaten Federal at Bullioh on Saturday.
In a stunning start to the home and away series, the Bulldogs have won their matches by 183, 143 and 108 points.
Ruckman Leo Nicolson started the ball rolling with Ben Commins, Josh Walters and Dustin Moffatt joining in the act.
Co-coach Hamish Clark was at his destructive best with nine goals while Zac Burhop kicked seven to take his season tally to 23.
"The first half was pretty tight but it blew out a bit after that,” Clark said.
“The team has gelled together really well.
“It’s been a good start.
“I still think we can improve but the boys are going along OK at the moment.”
Federal were outworked around the ball and depended too heavily on Cam Sheather, George Galbraith and Daniel Hales.
Steve Bradshaw and John Fahey also had their moments.
“Both teams had a few out,” Clark said.
“It’s still very early in the season and everyone is working each other out.”
The Swans forfeited the reserves for the second week in a row and are in danger of dropping out of the competition.
Corryong opened its winning account with a 72-point win over Tumbarumba.
After a poor start to the season, the Demons came alive in the second term by kicking 10 goals to none to effectively seal the win.
Coach Evan Nicholas led the way with a best on ground performance with Steven Wangman and James Barlee providing good support.
Jarrod Williams was lively with five majors.
Tumbarumba were best served by in-form recruits Luke and Ryan Kirkwood, Cameron Johnston and Wayne Rolla.
Cudgewa trounced Border-Walwa by 165 points.
The Blues had 11 goalkickers with Yarrod Hamilton bagging four to be close to best on ground.
Jake Vinge, Kade Small and Mitch Pynappels also dominated in the percentage-boosting victory.
Border-Walwa had triers in Michael Linklater, Benji Davidson and Ben McCarthy.
In next weekend’s matches, Federal take on winless Tumbarumba, Cudgewa do battle with a rampant Bullioh and Border-Walwa host Corryong.
