Mag­pies top ta­ble

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport - BY DEAN LAW­SON

Com­pe­ti­tion for top-five po­si­tions has con­tin­ued to tighten up in Minin­era and Dis­trict Foot­ball League as teams use a gen­eral bye this week­end to reload for a big mid-sea­son push.

Wick­liffe-lake Bo­lac sits un­beaten and a game clear of the field on the top of the lad­der, but only per­cent­age sep­a­rates Pen­shurst, Moys­ton-willaura, Glen­thomp­son­dunkeld in sec­ond, third and fourth spots re­spec­tively. Great Western and Taty­oon are next, both with three wins from five games.

Last week, Great Western ran into Glen­thomp­son-dunkeld, fin­ish­ing in ar­rears by 44 points, while Taty­oon had an im­por­tant 19-point win over Woorn­doo-mort­lake.

Wick­liffe-lake Bo­lac con­sol­i­dated its po­si­tion with a com­pre­hen­sive win over SMW Rovers and Moys­ton-willaura fin­ished 38 points bet­ter than Ararat Ea­gles in an in­trigu­ing game at Ararat’s Alexandra Oval.

Pen­shurst scored a 10-goal-plus win over Lis­more-der­ri­nal­lum and Hawkes­dale-macarthur ran away with a con­test against Cara­mut.

En­ter­ing the bye at the week­end, Sam Cocks leads the league’s goal-kick­ing ta­ble with 23 goals at an av­er­age of 4.6 ma­jors a game.

Chris Eales from Pen­shurst has 22 and Hawkes­dale-macarthur’s Pa­trick Sin­nott, 21. Wick­liffe-lake Bo­lac’s Wil­liam Slat­tery is sit­ting fourth with 20.
