HEYFIELD killed off any hope Cowwarr had of making the North Gippsland football finals on Saturday.
With the Saints needing to win their final three matches to make the finals, the Kangaroos were good at home, winning 16.19 (115) to 6.5 (41).
The Kangaroos remain in third spot on the ladder, trailing second-placed Sale City on percentage, while the Saints are 12 points outside the top five.
Jesse Jackway stood-out in attack, kicking six goals, benefitting from the efforts of the Heyfield midfield, led by Michael Coleman and Jack Woodland, who moved the ball well.
Scott Anderson led a strong back line, with veteran Adrian Cox coming into the side to make an impact.
Brett Grieve and Chris Distefano were the Saints' best players.
SALE City was relentless against Traralgon-Tyers United, conceding just three goals to defeat the home side by 91 points.
The Bombers were held goal-less during the second and third quarters as the Bulldogs built-up an 83-point lead by the final change. After a more even fourth term, the Bulldogs won 16.17 (113) to 3.4 (22).
The Sale City midfielders provided plenty of the ball to their forwards, with Bohdi Walker and Matt Ferguson kicking five goals each.
Best-on-ground Jacob Schuback dominated around the ground, and also kicked three goals when he drifted forward.
Coach David Piasente, Ben Chivers, Michael Walsh and Tom Bowman also made major contributions.
YARRAM maintained its four-point advantage on top of the ladder with victory at Rosedale.
The Blues tested the Demons in the first half, trailing by 16 points at the main break, but failed to score a point in the third term, while the visitors booted 3.5 to lead by 39 points at the final change.
Rosedale out-scored the Demons in the fourth quarter, kicking five goals to four, but the visitors won 14.17 (101) to 10.5 (65).
Chris Bruns, Trek Davis and Jack Moore were Yarram's best players, with Corbin Sutherland kicking four goals.
Corey Beaver, Joel Bristow and Dale Fleming stood-out for Rosedale, which remain in ninth place with two wins.
FINALS-bound Woodside won the round's closest match, defeating Glengarry by three points.
In a week which saw the resignation of coach Chris Day, the Magpies led by 12 points at three-quarter-time, only for the home side to kick three goals to one in the final term to win 9.11 (65) to 9.8 (62).
Todd Bryant and Cameron Whiteoak were best for the fifth-placed Wildcats, while
Chris Wangman kicked seven of the Magpies' nine goals.
CHURCHILL defeated Gormandale by 89 points at home.
The fourth-placed Cougars remain an outside chance to claim a top three berth following their 20.26 (146) to 8.9 (57) victory.
Rob Wilkie and Blake Slater kicked four goals each for the Cougars, with Nick Celima best-on-ground.
