Brock-Burrum emerged as the league darkhorse after hammering top six outfit Lockhart by 83 points on Saturday.
Former stalwart Nico Sedgwick destroyed the visitors in the first half to snare a career-high six goals in the 17.14 (116) to 4.9 (33) demolition.
Sedgwick will now return to Lavington after the Ovens and Murray Football League had a COVID-enforced break.
And while the diminutive dynamo, who played solely forward, won't be back, providing the O and M returns as planned next weekend, the Saints showed enough to suggest the long-time powerhouse can still have an impact in the finals.
"That first half was as good as we've played all year," coach Kade Stevens offered.
"Our last three wins have been strong wins and we're starting to play the footy that we know we're capable of."
After starting with only one win from the first five games to sit towards the bottom of the ladder, the Saints have now won three straight by a stunning average margin of 98 points.
"It was an even spread today (Saturday), when we were struggling early on, we were relying on too few, we had two or three players, maybe four, carrying the load," Stevens explained.
The match was effectively over early in the second term when the home team pushed the margin to seven goals.
With ruckman Matt Seiter toying with the opposition, tapping the ball to wherever he wanted, on-ballers Darcy I'Anson, Tyson Neander and Ronnie Boulton ran riot, all racking up 25-plus disposals.
Sedgwick was the beneficiary of their service and had five goals by half-time.
At the 12-minute mark of the second quarter, his opponent Blake Jones was wearing him tightly in a marking contest, but Sedgwick was still able to mark the ball one-hand and then nail the 35m set shot.
And although the match was long gone, Lockhart wasn't helped when Ash Middleton was charged with striking I'Anson in the second term and sent off for 15 minutes.
"They were really clean over the ball, we had a lot of mistakes and we kept missing targets, they swept on it and ran through us, broke our tackles and used it well," coach Mitch Carroll said.
"It was the small forwards who did all the damage, it wasn't their big ones."
Fullback Jake Phillips restricted boom forward Damian Cupido to three goals, but two came in the final minutes, while Jack Muldoon also tried hard.
