By SARAH RAMANTANIS
The Wyndham Suns overpowered top team Glen Orden doubling their final score, meaning top spot is up for grabs in Division 3.
After over running Sunshine Heights the previous weekend, the Suns were determined to keep their winning streak alive and they did just that, winning 13.12 (90) to 7. (45) at Goddard Street Reserve.
John Tomelty kicked four goals in the victory, while Michael Ryan was named best on ground.
The race for top spot is heating up with three rounds remaining.
The Hawks are in first place, two points ahead of Albanvale. In third spot is Sunshine Heights, who are a further two points behind.
The Dragons recovered from last week’s poor performance against Wyndham Suns, defeating Albanvale by nine-points at Robert Bruce Reserve.
Down by 22-points at the final break, Sunshine Heights kicked five goals to overrun Albanvale, who were kept to one point.
The Cobras will be looking to redeem themselves as they play Glen Orden in a top-of-the-table clash next week, while Sunshine Heights take on North Sunshine.
Coming off a bye round, Laverton defeated North Sunshine 12.15 (147) to 12.8 (80) at Dempster Park.
Although neither teams scored during the second and third quarter, star performances from Hayden Duczek and Patrick Lee led the Pies to victory with a combined score of 10 goals.
Jeremy Hibbert kicked six majors, ably supported by Anthony Ryan’s three goals for the Roadrunners.
