RELATED: Demons win local derby
HEYFIELD bumped reigning premier Rosedale outside the North Gippsland football top five.
The Kangaroos won 10.13 (73) to 5.15 (45) at Nambrok.
The Kangaroos led at every change and, while the Blues rallied late, inaccuracy cost them dearly, as they could only manage three goals from 13 scoring shots after half-time.
Scott Anderson continued his rich vein of form for the home side and was joined in the best by Matt Phelan, David Kelly and Mark Johnston.
Jake Suter, Brandon McDonald (two goals) and Jake Main were best for Rosedale.
The defeat dropped Rosedale to sixth on the ladder, one game behind Yarram and Heyfield.
NINE goals from returning star Jacob Schuback led Sale City to victory against Gormandale.
The flag frontrunner trailed the side at the opposite end of the ladder by four points at quarter-time, as the Tigers became just the second side to kick five goals in a quarter against Bulldogs this season.
However, that was as good as it got for the visitors, with the home side clicking into gear with 11 goals from 14 scoring shots in the second term on the way to a 27.14 (176) to 10.3 (63) win.
Tom Wilson and Bohdi Walker finished with four goals a-piece while Jake Milham and Josh Tollner joined Schuback in the best.
Luke Francis (two goals), Joseph Colaciello and Liam Kurrle battled hard for Gormandale.
A STRONG final quarter ensured Cowwarr survived a major scare against an improving Glengarry.
The Saints kept the Magpies goalless to quarter-time and maintained a 19-point lead at the main break, before the visitors stormed back to level scores by three-quarter-time.
Cowwarr responded by booting three goals to one in the final term to secure the win, 11.12 (78) to 9.8 (62).
Ben Coffey, Kurt Henderson and Brett Street (two goals) led the way for the Saints, while Shane Kosterman, Andrew May and Chris Wangman were Glengarry’s best.
CHURCHILL shored up second spot with another dominant display against Traralgon-Tyers United.
Fresh from racking up 31 goals in a 141-point win against Gormandale, the Cougars piled on 24 against the Bombers on their way to a 24.20 (164) to 5.1 (31) win.
Brad Brereton and Chris Williams booted four goals each to lead the dozen scoreboard contributors.
Luke Brereton, Travis Brighton and Dean Degroot were the major standouts.
Bombers coach Jay Neagle was the only multiple goal-kicker for the home side, which was best served by Rhys Martin, Nick Albanese and Guy Sinclair.
