Luke Murfitt-Cowen solidified Longford’s position at the top of the ladder and his at the top of the goal charts with a 10 sack in a 113-point stroke against Hillwood. The prolific forward made up almost half of his team’s score in a 22.13 (145) to 5.2 (32) win as his season’s total goals stood at 34, 11 ahead of Darren Banham by Deloraine. Hillwood coach Jake Pearce explained during the week his team’s planning for the cannon attack, but the Sharks had no response, conceding nine goals in the first term. Nash Digney finished with a couple for the eighth home team. Joshua Gray and Liam Davies also kicked three times apiece as the Tigers made their debut for 2018’s top Under-18 player Will Dakin. After two wins in three weeks by less than a kick, Bridgenorth went a little easier on the blood pressure of coach Phil Lethborg but lost by nine points to Deloraine. The fourth versus fifth clash involving two teams on 12 points proved to be as close as expected as the Roos came back from behind to win 8.11 (59) to 7.8 (50). The Parrots were leading in the first two breaks, but a single point in the Premier Quarterback proved their loss despite outscoring their opponents in the last term. Banham scored three goals and Lachy Dornauf two for Deloraine although Rohan Sergeant was the game’s top scorer with four for the brave Parrots. The evening derby between Scottsdale, seventh, and George Town, a winless wine merchant, was stolen by the Magpies 12.13 (85) to 2.2 (14). Kyle Lanham gave eight, Shane Baker four and Joseph Robinson three. South Launceston had the bye. The native round match will see Rocherlea host Bracknell at 2:30 p.m. Sunday.
