The reigning premiers led at every change on Saturday, with their final quarter the best of the day, kicking seven goals to four.

The Devils had 11 goal scorers, which would please coach Jonathan Miller.

Brendan Lucas was the main target up forward, he kicked four goals in the 15.15. (105) to 10.12. (72).

Oliver McMullan and Brody Vorano also played well for the home team.

It was a disappointing result for Manor Lakes, who now find themselves in sixth place on the ladder, one win behind the fourth placed Newport Power.

“The seniors had a real focus on helping each other out during the game and putting together a four quarter effort and from the first bounce, it was evident that we were not going to lower our colours,” coach Shane Lucas said on the West Footscray Facebook page.

“Quick ball movement and scoreboard pressure was there from the get go and the most pleasing thing from the day was our willingness to help each other out, be it a block, a sheppard or using our voices.”
