    THE upsets continued in the Hume Football Leaguewith CDHBU bringing down the premiership favourites Brocklesby-Burrumbuttockby 22 points.

    AfterBurrumbuttockkicked the first two goals of the match, CDHBU went on a goal scoring spree with power forward Luke Cowan just about unstoppable.

    Of the next 10 goals kicked in the half CDHBU booted nine of them with Cowan the catalyst kicking seven of them to set up lead of 38 points at half-time.

    Brocklesby-Burrumbuttock came back in the second half but the damage had been done as the Power moved into third place on the ladder.

    Osborne finally got on the winner’s list when they easily defeated old rivals Lockhart at home by 46 points.

    A scintillating first half that had Osborne kick 10 of the 11 goals set up the win with Marty Bahr, Alec Rowell and Connor Galvin amongst the Cats best.

    Lockhart had its best moments in the final term when courtesy of Zac Sheather and Mitch Sykes they were able to outscore the home team.

    The win was just the boost Osborne needed after several close losses and the big loss of Matt Clark for the season through injury.

    Henty produced its best form for the season defeating Howlong at home by 14 points in a high standard encounter.

    It made it two wins in a row for the Swampies, whilst it was the Spiders second defeat in a row after they had started the season so well.

    Big Roy Jaques was best on ground for Henty dominating the ruck and giving the midfield first use of the ball in a great duel with Spiders Peter Hancock.

    James Gray booted four goals for Howlong, while Beau Walker, Troy Price and Ben Baker stood out. Both sides will more than likely clash again come finals.

    Walla made it two wins on the trot with a hard fought win over rivals Culcairn at Culcairn, with Coach Matt Jaensch the star for the winners.

    Jaensch kicked eight goals to be clearly best afield. Jayden Holt, Craig Lieschke and Ethan O’Donnell who also crossed over from the Tallangatta FL starred as well.

    Culcairn again got excellent service from Nick Wright (three goals). Simon McLeish, Hayden Smith and Kaden Slatter all played well in a dour battle.

    The Lions now sit at the bottom of the table.

    Walla, with two wins and a bye, have rocketed into seventh position.

    Jindera jumped into second place on the ladder when they proved to classy and experienced for the young Holbrook outfit at Jindera.

    With Jindera coach Josh Walker in great form up forward kicking eight goals, the Bulldogs were never threatened after quarter time.

    Sam Myors played his best game for Jindera since joining this year, while Mick Blomley and Andrew Wilson showed there class and poise.

    Holbrook got good service out of Keiran McCarthy, Will Heriot, Lachie Trethowan and Andrew Mackinlay.

    Murray Magpies moved into top place on the ladder with an 21 point win over a tenacious Billabong Crows at Lavington Sportsground.

    Zac Kerr was best for the Crows in a good team effort, while for Magpies it was Dylan Hartin and Hayden Edwards who got the job done.
