A blistering ninegoal first quarter from Moama saw it make sure of a win against Tocumwal early in Saturday’s match at Moama.
The Magpies were then able to take it easy for the remainder of the game, eventually winning 17.16 (118) to 8.13 (61).
Holding a 50-point lead at quarter time, Moama narrowly won the second term to hold a sizeable advantage at the long break.
An inaccurate third term from the Magpies saw the Bloods make some inroads into the deficit as they kicked 4.1 to 1.6 to see the margin at 39 points at the final change.
But the home team clicked into gear once more in the final quarter to kick four goals to one and win by 57 points.
Brendan Jay stood tall at full back to be Moama’s best player, keeping key forward Balraj Singh goal-less, while Ryan Hon also impressed on the wing with two goals.
Others named in the best were the consistent Jade Keam, Ed Bourke, James Scambler and Joe Cosgriff, while Angus Grigg kicked four goals.
Rhys Monteath and Kieren Andrew slotted three goals each for Toc, while Michael Morgan, Scott Baldwin, Tim Garlick, Ken Chellew and Denis Hickey were the better players.
The Bloods travel to Deniliquin for another tough away match this week.
