Demons on the move in Mininera

Lismore-Derrinallum has moved to second spot on Mininera and District Football League ladder after providing Great Western its third loss for the season.

At the same time, Tatyoon ended up one step closer to securing a top-five spot with a win over Wickliffe-Lake Bolac.

Lismore-Derrinallum came out firing in the first quarter against the Lions to take an early lead. But Great Western fought back to be within three points at the main break.

A 6.2 third quarter set up the win for the Demons and despite the Lions outscoring them in the last term the damage had been done.

The Lions will get a chance to take a breath this week when they play winless Ararat Eagles.

The Eagles most recent loss was to Hawkesdale-Macarthur, where they managed two goals in the first quarter – their only score for the day. Aaron Jenkins and Riley Jervis were the better players for Ararat.

Tatyoon is also set for an easy day when it plays Hawkesdale-Macarthur. Coming off last week’s win against the Magpies, the sixth-placed Hawks have put themselves on the same points as fifth-placed Wickliffe-Lake Bolac. Tatyoon led from the start on Saturday and will be keen to keep up the good form to get a percentage boost this week.

Jarrod Blandford was best on ground with the help of Jack Antonio and Mitchell Cronin.

Ladder leader Penshurst will travel to Lake Bolac to take on the Magpies.

Nicholas Chirnside, Taylor Hall and Harley Hunter were best for the Magpies in their 19-point loss to Tatyoon, and these players will need to step up again this week against the in-form Bombers.

A big win over winless Moyston-Willaura featured Timothy Barton kicking five goals, while Aaron Glare and Justin Eales provided plenty of support around the ground.

Penshurst now sits a game and a half clear on top of the ladder.

In other games Glenthompson-Dunkeld hosts Lismore-
Derrinallum, Moyston-Willaura plays Woorndoo-Mortlake, and SMW Rovers take on Caramut who have shown massive signs of improvement during the last few weeks and they will be looking for another scalp.
