Saturday proved that 2024 is the Eagles’ year – clearly, the Bears were not up to the challenge.

A far cry from the round 4 challenge when Thomastown fell three points short of a win (which was possibly the last time Garry Ramsay’s side has come too close to losing a match), it was a convincing win for the Eagles when they upset a challenge by Thomastown to rearrange the final eight, and the work in the middle that has seen the home side dominate contests, led by Division 2 best and fairest fancy Taidgh Bland.

Despite an opening goal by Thomastown, the Eagles proved that they were not to be challenged by pouring on nine majors before the main break.

The second half was no different with 14 Eagle’s goals to Thomastown’s three, leading to a 19-goal win for the Eagles.

Taidgh Bland again led the best on ground with Steven Dempsey, Clancy Bland, Xavier Dimasi, Paul Higgins, and Mitchell Andrews completing the honours list.

Lucas Hobbs showed great form with five goals and Taidgh Bland with three. Langford and Dyson booted two each sending the Eagles to another great victory.

After the game, Whittlesea sits comfortably on top of the ladder and convincingly ignoring the sides below who are knocking on the door.

But the Eagles were never threatened in their amazing triumph over Thomastown, and the 19.11 (125) to 6.9 (45) result proved that. The Eagles now boast a record 13-game winning streak.

‘Despites’ lead to loss

In the second meeting since the 2023 Division 3 grand final, Laurimar and South Morang went head-to-head last Saturday, in a game of ‘despites’.

Despite showing leadership form mid game, Laurimar finally went down to a stronger team. And despite three impressive goals from Joel Lawson, the Power struggled to keep up with the pace of the game – despite being even with South Morang at the main break.

From that point it was game over, with South Morang piling on the scoring points to see Laurimar go down 10.9 (69) to South Morang 17. 11 (113)

Bast for Power were Carter McCall, Ethan Bateman, Aidan Clarke, Luke Wilson, Bailey Macleod, and Joel Lawson.

What a thrashing!

In a crucial contest, Mernda 
had a thumping win against 
Old Eltham Collegians at Waterview Recreation Reserve.

While both teams were missing some key personnel, Mernda was out to upset any challenge and clearly had the home ground advantage, having not lost once at the venue this year.

The final siren saw Mernda at 22.15 (147) against the opponent’s 3.2 (20) in an impressive win.

Best for the side were Jesse Inzillo, Nicholas Eades, Mathew Siciliano, Jake Galizia, Ethan Ross, and Zac Hill.
