Lavington forward Adam Flagg continued his red-hot form with yet another five-goal haul against Wangaratta Rovers.
But the Panthers were inaccurate in the 15.23 (113) to 1.5 (11) win over the wooden spooners.
Flagg has 23 goals for the season, with 16 coming in the last month, including five majors against Corowa-Rutherglen and Wodonga Raiders.
Rovers didn’t kick their goal until the final term.
Panthers’ coach Simon Curtis would be vying with Yarrawonga’s Harry Wheeler as the league’s most consistent player, featuring in the best for the 13th time in his 15 games.
He’s ineligible for the Morris Medal though as that one game he missed was due to suspension.
Nick Meredith was named in the best for the 10th time, while Brant Dickson, Flagg and Nick Holman also played well.
Under 18 players Riley Calvene and Ed Dayman were Rovers’ top performers.
