REIGNING premier Harrow-Balmoral remains undefeated, with a win against Noradjuha-Quantong at the weekend.
The Roos and Bombers clashed in last season's preliminary final, with Harrow-Balmoral eventually prevailing to win the grand final a week later.
The stakes were not as high on Saturday, but the result was the same as the Roos recorded a 10-goal win.
A stellar 42-goal performance from goal shooter Amy Lewis earned her best on court honours for Harrow-Balmoral, while defender Kate Houlihan was influential.
Sarah Koenig, 17 goals, and Samantha Avery, 19, kept the Bombers in the match, but could not overcome Lewis's effectiveness at the other end.
Natimuk United is shaping up as one of Harrow-Balmoral's main challengers this season after a clinical display against 2013 runner-up Edenhope-Apsley.
The Ewes got an early jump on the Saints with a 16-goals-to-five opening term.
Kirby Knight picked up where she left off last season with another dominant display, shooting 51 goals.
Sally Iredell and Alex Lang were Edenhope-Apsley's best.
Pimpinio is another side that has put its hand up as a finals contender after posting strong results in its first two matches.
The Tigers overpowered Rupanyup at the weekend, winning 63-27.
Pimpinio goal tandem Kylie Helyar and Kelsey Hamilton were voted the best players for their side.
Helyar finished with 37 goals and Hamilton had 26.
It was a tough day for the Rupanyup defenders, but goal defence Lana Hayes and wing defence Leesa Drum were named the best for their side.
Sophie Baker finished with 16 goals and Kayla Woods had 11 at Rupanyup's end.
Swifts were denied an elusive win for another week after Kalkee made short work of its opponents.
The Baggies competed well in the first quarter and were within five goals at the first change.
It was in the second and final quarters the Kees got away from them, winning the quarters with a combined margin of 17 goals.
Kee Clair McDonald's work at wing defence earned her best on court honours and Hayley Thomas' 30-goal contribution was valued.
Kylie Murphy played in defence and attack for Swifts and was considered the team's best.
Laharum became the fourth undefeated team after two rounds with an easy win over Taylors Lake.
Recruit Caitlin Story was named among the Mountain Maids' best for a second consecutive week, and Ema Iredell was strong in goal keeper.
