Former Cranbourne superstar forward, Marc Holt was absolutely unstoppable against Pearcedale on Saturday as Karingal made light work of the Panthers.

With Holt on fire and enjoying great delivery into the forward 50, he kicked nine goals in a dominant display as the Bulls defeated the Panthers by 85 points, 18.15 (123) to 5.8 (38).

Max Gearon and Mitch Lindsay were best in a tough day at the office for Pearcedale.

Devon Meadows slumped to another loss as they were no match for Chelsea at Glover Reserve.

The Panthers simply couldn’t get the score on the board to trouble the Seagulls at any point throughout the day as Chelsea ran out 49-point winners, 14.14 (98) to 7.7 (49).

Lochlan Burke and Patrick Boland battled hard all day for Devon Meadows.



Keysborough absolutely obliterated Chelsea Heights at home.

The forward line duo of Matthew Carnelley and Chris Bryan (five goals each) created havoc all day, while the likes of Tamas Siposs and Bryce Sutton were impressive in the Burras’ 100-point win, 20.13 (133) to 5.3 (33).

After seven rounds, the Burras have six wins and no losses to their name.

The Doveton Eagles put forth a disappointing display against Murrumbeena. With Murrumbeena leading by one-point at the main break, the second half was set up to be a stirring contest, but the Eagles were no match down the stretch.

Doveton scored just two majors after half time, while Murrumbeena slammed on 10 goals of its own to claim a comprehensive win, 19.12 (126) to 11.9 (75). Piva Wright (four goals) battled hard all day for the Eagles, while Cameron Carmody and Cory Wilson tried their best in a tough second half.

Doveton owns a 5-2 record and sit fourth on the ladder.


In the Division 3 match of the round, Hampton Park sent a message to the rest of the competition with a comprehensive win over Endeavour Hills.

The Redbacks entered the round with no losses, while the Falcons had just one to their name, but Hampton Park flexed its muscle with a great team performance to come away with a 45-point win, 13.15 (93) to 7.6 (48).

Cory Phillips and Luke Behin were in fine form for the Redbacks, while the pairing of Cameron Williamson and Travis Davis (three goals each) was dangerous. For the Falcons, Ben Holland and Ben Carter were best in a disappointing day.


Lyndale was in control for the first three quarters in their game against Carrum Patterson Lakes, but a fourth quarter fade-out cost them the game.

With Trent Day (four goals), Anthony Koutsoubos and Max Little playing dynamic games, the Pumas led by 20 points at the final break, but when the Lions went up a gear in the fourth, the Pumas couldn’t respond.

A four-goal to one fourth quarter saw Carrum Patterson Lakes pull off a famous comeback victory, 9.15 (69) to 9.13 (67).

Hallam fell behind early against Frankston and never recovered as the Dolphins dominated from start to finish in their contest.

Despite the best efforts of Hallam’s Dean Webb and Dylan Thompson, a five-goal haul from Jarrod Sullivan saw Frankston record a big win, 14.17 (101) to 7.12 (54).



The Casey Demons started slowly against Williamstown, but kicked into gear after quarter time to come away with a comfortable road win.

The Demons went scoreless in the first term, but kicked seven of the last eight goals of the game, while keeping the Seagulls scoreless after half time to cruise to a 7.6 (48) to 2.1 (13) win.

Gippsland Power product, Tyla Hanks starred for the Demons, while Chantel Emonson and Tayla Tatterson (two goals) were also impressive. The Demons are undefeated after three rounds and sit on top of the ladder.



Tooradin-Dalmore continues to power along in the West Gippsland Football Netball Competition, this week taking care of Inverloch-Kongwak at home.

Eventually, Tooradin-Dalmore got the job done,16.10 (106) to 14.4 (88), with Lewis Hill (three goals) best afield, and Michael Hobbs (two goals) and Andrew Proctor playing key roles across the ground.
