A scintillating second term set up a big win for Natimuk United against Jeparit-Rainbow in round two of the Horsham District football league.
After a slow start, Natimuk United trailed by a goal at quarter time in what looked set to be a close encounter.
Rams' coach Sam Anson said his side were guilty of not bringing the right attitude in the first term.
"We definitely came out and underestimated them at the start," Anson said. "Last week we got out of the gates really well, but this week we came out really slow.
"It's something to work on mentality wise."
But the Rams dominated in the second term, holding Jeparit-Rainbow scoreless and piling on six goals of their own.
Their ascendancy continued into the third quarter as they booted the first five to make it a streak of 11 unanswered goals and put the game out of reach.
Jeparit-Rainbow rallied and finished the game with their heads held high, keeping the deficit to the 10 goal margin that opened up at the beginning of the third term.
Jaydon Stiles was the main man up forward and finished with seven goals for Natimuk United, but it was a host of younger players that most pleased Sam Anson.
"I think we had five under-18 playing today - It was probably those guys who were in the best," he said.
"Dylan Bates, Henry Mackley, Zach Smith, Kyah Wilkinson. They were fantastic.
"We had a five-person turnover from last week and to still get a win like that, I think it really shows our depth."
The only dampener on the day was an injury for Anson near the quad or groin area.
"I don't really know how it is, I'm going to have to get scans on it I think," Anson said.
Jeparit-Rainbow head coach Daniel Batson said his side were rusty in their first hit-out for the season.
"I watched Natimuk play last week and they were a lot better team this week after having the run," Batson said.
"We were rusty. We fumbled, missed a few skills and missed tackles. They just looked that bit sharper at the contest.
"But we blew out a bit of that rust. Obviously we didn't get the result, but Natimuk look like they have a very handy side this year."
In other intriguing results, Kalkee only just prevailed in their match against Rupanyup. The Panthers led by a point at three quarter time, but Kalkee were able to overcome their inaccurate kicking for goal and claim an eight point win.
Taylors Lake meanwhile continued to show their improvement as they led Edenhope-Apsley by three goals at half time at Dock Lake. Desperate to avoid an upset, the Saints pulled it back to a two-point deficit at three quarter time and then proceeded to run away with the win in the last quarter, holding the Lakers goalless and securing the 27 point win.
Swifts also handsomely defeated Noradjuha-Quantong, doing most of the damage in an effective first term. Laharum also got their season back on track with a big win against Pimpinio.
