Myrtleford has had the greatest start in its 69-year history.
As expected, the Saints surpassed the club's 1971 effort by claiming their sixth successive win against Corowa-Rutherglen.
And livewire Lachie Dale continued his fine start with a five-goal haul at home in the 14.13 (97) to 5.9 (39) win.
Dale has jumped into third in the goalkicking with 22, trailing sidelined Wangaratta star Michael Newton (25) and Lavington power forward Aidan Johnson (23).
Ryley Sharp also chipped in with three majors.
But while Dale was superb, he was pipped for best on ground by co-captain Matt Dussin.
The inspirational leader can play virtually anywhere and his work in defence restricted the Roos.
Ryan Crisp and Riley O'Shea also played well.
The visitors' Alex Wallis kicked his first goals for the season in nabbing three.
The Roos have been battered by injuries with Billy Raggett their best.
