After a very lean start to the season the North Ballarat Knights, last year’s Division 1 premiers, has now won two games in a row, easily accounting for Wyndham in the round six game at White Flat Oval in Ballarat.
“North Ballarat’s run and movement and slick skills were excellent in the heavy conditions,” said Wyndham coach Paul Barrett.
“We left our A game back in the sheds. Apart from the first five minutes we were outclassed all over the field.
“The only shining light was the human singlet, Vincent Villeages, who was at the bottom of all the packs and played a fantastic game in his seniors’ debut.”
Williamstown returned to the winners’ table in its game against Kananook. After playing without discipline in the away game against North Ballarat in round five, the Seagulls looked right at home in the cold, muddy conditions at Williamstown’s Fearon Reserve.
With four rounds to go, Williamstown sits atop the Division 1 ladder on five wins and one loss, followed by Kananook, North Ballarat and Wyndham.
North Ballarat 17.22 (124) Wyndham 3.2 (20)
Williamstown 8.10 (58) Kananook 3.6 (24)
Reserves Williamstown 3.2 (20) Kananook 12.16 (88)
