In last weekend's round, the six winning Mininera and District Football League clubs amassed 121 goals for the day to their opponents' 28 - surely this must concern administrators with future viability of some clubs.
Two clubs making a solid move to that last day in September, Great Western and Penshurst had big wins against mid-order sides in SMW Rovers and Lismore Derrinallum.
The Westerners put on a show and are a team demonstrating great positional skills.
Speedster Bradley Palipuaminni is one of the most exciting players to grace the league's turf for a number of years.
The Westerners, coming from ninth place last season, should continue its winning way against Moyston Willaura this weekend.
Derrinallum Penshurst, with a four-quarter effort, surprised most pundits with the ease of gaining a 54 point win against the home side.
Penshurst's better players were Tim Barton, recruited from the Geelong District League, and Jaron Lengyel, previously with Anglesea, and both well supported by coach Chris Eales.
The win gives the Bombers a buffer of one game in second position and one game behind the Westerners.
This weekend Penshurst at home are against Ararat Eagles and are tipped to win.
The Magpies handed out a 321 point massacre of the Ararat Eagles last week, kicking 16 goals in the final term.
James Spicer led the goalkicking with 16 goals, Chris Keilor 8 and Nigel Otto 7.
This week the Magpies host Hawkesdale Macarthur and should they continue last week's form, they should have a percentage building win.
The match of the round brings SMW Rovers and Glen Dunkeld to battle for the points.
Both clubs are four points out of the five and the loser will find it difficult to maintain in touch with the leaders.
The SMW Rovers opened up against the Westerners last weekend gaining a two goal margin at the first change but the Westerners quickly put the game beyond doubt amassing nine goals to one in the second term.
Tatyoon last weekend, with a solid start and skilled movement of the ball, went into the first break with a five goal margin.
Glen Dunkeld never recovered - mainly due to its inaccuracy in front of the goal.
The Hawks from the midterm break controlled to game and ran home with a 42 point victory.
Both clubs are now four points out of the five, with Tatyoon possibly picking up the points at Caramut this week.
