Mallee Park 29-14 (188) def Boston 7-5 (47)
Mallee Park have scored a dominant 141-point win against Boston at home in their round eight clash on Saturday.
The Peckers were heavily favoured having won every game so far this year while the Tigers were still looking for their first of the season.
Mallee Park set itself up nicely with an eight goal to one first quarter.
The Peckers’ attack proved to be too much for the young and developing Tigers side, which included a number of regular faces from the reserves who unfortunately had to forfeit the past weekend’s game.
A further 10 goals in the second quarter put Mallee Park out to 103-points at half time, a score no team could come back from.
Boston had their best quarter in the third, equalling Mallee Park with three goals to bring the margin to 101-points going into the final break.
Mallee Park finished strongly with 8 goals from 13 scoring shots while Boston managed 2 of their own to finish the game with the 141-point deficit.
It was raining goals all day at Mallee Park with the Peckers finishing with 10 individual goal kickers.
Spearhead Dean Miller did the bulk of the damage kicking 12 of Mallee Park’s 29 goals, surging him to the top of the league goal kicking table.
Peter Lindsay continues to be a player to watch as he contributed to Mallee Park’s attack and kicked two goals for the day while Otis Carter continues to stand out in the ruck and kicked three of his own.
For Boston Jake Nicholls continues to be one of Boston’s best forwards and was their leading goal kicker with two goals for the day.
Aaron Dunn was among the best for the Tigers on the day as were Chris McFarlane and Cayden Hill, who are normally seen playing in the reserves.
Mallee Park almost look unbeatable at this point and will look to further cement that status when they travel to Wangary to play second placed Marble Range, who are coming off a 17-point win against Tasman.
Boston’s search for its first win continues as the team plays at home against Lincoln South, who will be looking to bounce back from a four-match skid after losing to Wayback by 25-points.
Wayback 8-7 (55) def Lincoln South 3-12 (30)
Wayback made the most of its shots on goal as it defeated Lincoln South by 25-points at Centenary Oval on Saturday.
The Demons started off strongly kicking two goals in the first quarter while the Eagles were left scoreless.
Wayback strengthened its lead in the second with another two goals while Lincoln South missed some good scoring opportunities to manage just five behinds for the quarter to trail by 24-points at half time.
The Eagles got themselves back into the game in the third, kicking two goals while keeping Wayback to just one for the quarter, but again accuracy cost them as they also kicked five behinds to bring the margin back to 14-points.
Wayback finished strong with a three goal to one final quarter to run out winners.
Shaun Maxfield continues to impress and finished as top scorer with three goals while Taner Schlink starred in ruck and Seth Meyers had another great game in defence.
For Lincoln South Paul White was a standout across half back, Mitch Hall had a good second half down the wing and first year players Jamie Doudle and James Neale are ones to watch for the future.
