EIGHT goals from Kane Munro led Walpeup-Underbool to its second win of the season at Underbool Recreation Reserve on Saturday.
Munro’s haul – which earned him best on ground honours – guided the Roos to an 11.15 (81) to 4.6 (30) win over Hopetoun.
In a low-scoring contest, the Devils held the advantage at half-time by just three points.
However, the Roos clicked into gear after the break, opening up an 18-point lead at three-quarter-time before a five goal-to-zero final term put the result beyond doubt.
Munro was well supported by team-mates including David Piasente and Ben Matthews, while David Johnstone, two goals, was named the Devils’ best.
The Roos have now leapfrogged the Devils into fifth place on the ladder.
A win against fourth-placed Woomelang-Lascelles at the weekend would help the Roos close the gap on the top four and aid their finals chances.
Sea Lake-Nandaly Tigers maintained second-place on the ladder with a 40-point win over Ouyen United at Culgoa.
The Demons got off to a good start, leading by 15 points at quarter-time.
But the Tigers responded, closing the margin to just one goal at the major break before claiming a 13-point lead ahead of the final quarter.
The host ran the game out stronger – a five-goal to one last term sealed the 12.15 (87) to 6.11 (47) triumph.
Lance Brown was named the Tigers’ best, while Col Durie and Jordan Doering also stood tall.
Darcy Ryan, Cliff Ryan, Jarrod Arentz and Lachlan Gilbert kicked two goals each.
Demon Brad Vallance slotted three majors and Andrew Jardine was named their best player.
Beulah maintained its unblemished record with an 81-point win over bottom-side Jeparit-Rainbow.
Fabian Dorbolo and Shaun Monohan starred for the Blues in the 17.9 (111) to 4.6 (30) victory, while Callum Buchanan and Tyler Lehmann were again named in the side’s best.
Laker Chris Meyer kicked two of his side’s four goals, while Elliott Bath was valiant in defeat.
Bath was named in his side’s best players for the seventh time in nine games this season.
