Tumbarumba continued to show why it will have its say in the 2021 Upper Murray premiership race with a comprehensive 156-point victory against Corryong at Tumbarumba on Saturday.
The Roos' were efficient inside 50 in the first half to set up an 80-point lead before running out 29.15 (189) to 5.6 (36) winners.
In-form forward Daniel Hitchens nabbed eight majors for the hosts, Andrew Widdison and Steven Hoffman booted four apiece, Finn De Bono finished with three in a best on ground performance, while James and Henry Waters and coach Quinn Rooney were also multiple goal-kickers.
Callum Brooksby did an outstanding job on Corryong coach Mitch Harris, while Hunter Clayton also stood out.
Matt Findlay kicked two for Corryong and was among the Demons' best, along with Patrick Riley and Evan Nicholas.
Rooney said he couldn't fault the performance.
"We played very unselfish footy," he said.
"I think Corryong were a bit understrength, which is never good to see in this league, but we didn't take it easy on them.
ALSO IN SPORT:
"We weren't sure if it was going to rain or not, so we wanted to get in early and get a good lead in case it did.
"The three most forward blokes 'Hitcho' (Hitchens), 'Widdo' (Widdison) and Henry Waters were unreal. When they had their space, there was no stopping them.
"We play Cudgewa next week and we don't want to lose to them or lose again to be honest.
"We're in a position where we should have as strong a team as we're going to get each week now."
Meanwhile, Cudgewa kept its unbeaten start alive with a 25.26 (176) to 1.5 (11) thumping of Federal.
Kylin Morey kicked another eight goals to take his season tally to 61 from just six games.
The Blues were well served by Luke Bloom, Mitch Pynappels, James McInerney, Dayne Carey and Jayden Pryse.
The ladder after 10 rounds is: Cudgewa 32, Tumbarumba 20, Bullioh 16, Corryong 4, Federal 0.
