The Ararat Eagles failed to match Woorndoo-Mortlake on the field, losing the round eight match by 114 points on Saturday.

A nine-goal opening quarter from the Tigers all but put the result beyond the Eagles before the quarter time break.

The visitors could only manage 1.2.8 to go into the first break trailing by 48 points.

The second quarter was a better term for the Eagles, as the defence tightened up and only conceded three while scoring two of their own.

A seven goals to one third quarter ensured Woorndoo-Mortlake would get the points at home, as the Eagles were unable to match effort and consistency across the ground, slumping to a 5.10.40 to 24.10.154 loss.

Josh Matthews was the only multiple goalkicker for the Eagles, finishing with two majors while Case Maxwell was named best on ground for the visitors.
