Endeavour Hills will be in seventh heaven after it disposed of a hapless South Yarra outfit in Southern Division 3 on Saturday.

The Yarra’s have been struggling all year and have yet to register a win on the board.

The Eagles got off a flying start with a 46 to nothing first quarter, with Jarrod Marolla and Liam Hasler combining to hit the scoreboard.

South Yarra only found itself on the scoreboard in the final term through Callum Bradley.

The Eagles continued to extend the margin and pushed the advantage out to 107 at the three-quarter time break.

The game continued to fall the Eagles way with a three goal final term stanza to carry the Hills to a 121-point final margin.

Black Rock had a hard fought 49-point win over Clayton, with Michael Donehue having the prowess to kick three goals in the 49-point win.

Narre South Saints had to dig deep against competition favourites Murrumbeena at Strathaird Reserve.

The Saints had to fight from behind in the first half and cut the margin to one at the main interval. A three-goal third term saw the Saints forge ahead thanks to Mandrez Manu who put the margin beyond two goals.

A gallant final-term by Murrumbeena saw them close the gap to eight points.

The Saints prevailing by eight-points in a nail-bitter to inflict the Lions their first loss of the season.

Carrum Patterson Lakes had to contend with the wild and windy conditions in their low scoring affair with Ashwood.

Less than 50 points were scored between the two teams in the 31-13 final score.

Carrum’s inaccuracy saw them leave the door ajar for Ashwood.

Ashwood were unable to impact the scoreboard only scoring two goals. The Magpies falling 18-points short.
