BEULAH continued on its winning way, defeating Walpeup-Underbool in round 10 of the Mallee Football League on Saturday.
The undefeated Blues were quick to hit the scoreboard and despite the slippery conditions, some good passages of play saw the Blues kick four goals to the Roos’ one in a tight first quarter.
Players adjusted to the conditions in the second term and were able to score more freely as the Blues put on another six goals to the Roos’ three, extending their half-time lead to 36 points.
The Roos came out strongly in the third quarter and were dominant around the stoppages early, however the class and depth of the Beulah side saw them eventually break the shackles and run out comfortable winners.
The Beulah forward line was a class act again, led by Denis Redden with six goals. Lachlan Foott kicked five and Orval kicked three.
Shaun Monohan picked up another best-on-gound trophy and was joined in the best by Callum Buchanan and Brock Orval.
For the Roos, Kane Munro kicked three goals, while Matthew Palmer, Joab Mead and Luke Summerhayes were their better players.
Jeparit-Rainbow headed north to Ouyen United in search of its first win of the season, but it was the host that came away with the points.
Inaccurate kicking for goal did not help the Lakers as they kicked 2.5 in the first quarter while the Demons were able to capitalise on their opportunities with a 6.4 first term.
The Demons were able to pull away in the third term as they clamped down on the Lakers, restricting them to a solitary goal – while a big final quarter saw Ouyen victorious by 59 points.
Relton Roberts kicked five goals for the Demons, while their better players included Bradley Vallence, Roberts, Ben Gregg, and Anthony Jardine.
Brodie Grant kicked four goals for Jeparit-Rainbow.
Hopetoun hosted Woomelang-Lascelles, with the Cats recording a big 98-point win.
