HOPETOUN enjoyed its first win of the season with a comprehensive victory over Walpeup-Underbool.
Last year’s wooden-spoon team opened its account for this season by winning all except the third quarter.
The final score was 15.10 (100) to 4.7 (31).
The Roos are less than two years removed from winning the 2012 premiership, but did not play like it on Saturday.
Devil Coleman Schache was named best on ground, with Jeremy Brown putting up a good fight for the Roos.
Beulah continued to dominate with a 20.16 (136) to 3.5 (23) belting of Jeparit-Rainbow.
The win saw the Blues remain atop the ladder with a whopping percentage of 354.95.
Michael Farrelly booted three goals and was best afield for the Blues.
Ben Marra, Nathan Millard and Adam Schultz were the lone goal-kickers for the Lakers.
Sea Lake-Nandaly Tigers joined Beulah on top of the table as the only other undefeated team by besting Ouyen United in a hard-fought match.
The Tigers trailed at every change, but stormed home with seven goals to zero in the last quarter to win 14.10 (94) to 11.9 (75).
Sea Lake-Nandaly veteran Col Durie was best on ground and Tigers forward Simon Weekly booted a five-goal haul.
Dylan Fishwick was the Demons’ best.
