Great Western showed again why it is at the top of the Mininera Football League ladder, with precision kicking and accuracy against the Magpies last week.
The Westerns, with a nine-goal to four lead at the first break, did not allow the Magpies to dent its leading margin at any stage during the game.
Great Western's Gerrard Cunningham and Steven Lorenzo, with five goals apiece, were the key goal kickers closely followed with four apiece to Adam Cameron and Nick Dunford.
Better players were team leaders Jeremy Cronin and Jesse Bennett.
However, all 18 Great Western players contributed to the win at all times.
The Magpie's better players were Darryl Perkins, Harley Hunter, Nicholas Chirnside, Arron Taggart and Brock Wardlaw.
The Westerns travel to second-placed Penshurst this week - a harder opponent and a side which rarely loses home games.
The Magpies, outside the five after last week's defeat, take on fifth-placed Glen Dunkeld which kicked 38.16 to 4.6 against Moyston Willaura.
The result of this game will most likely decide which club makes the final five later in the year.
Caramut is set to play the Ararat Eagles.
Credit must be given to the Ararat Eagles' administration in keeping the club afloat.
Caramut is in similar territory and both clubs are keeping community football alive in difficult times.
SMW Rovers played Tatyoon the eventual winners by a point, in a game where the margin only ever reached seven points.
Tatyoon's 'General' Sean McDougall was the major contributor assisted by the Cronin boys and Jack Antonio.
Lismore Derrinallum's Michael Lockyer 2017 and 2018 Lewis Medal best and fairest winner was on song with eight goals and a best on ground performance in the side's 219 point win over Caramut.
Moyston Willaura plays SMW Rovers in a game which should prove difficult for the host.
The Pumas are going through a torrid season, with only four points to date and a percentage of 23.78 per cent - big change from their senior premiership year of 2014 and last season's reserves and 16.5 premierships.
Third-placed Woorndoo Mortlake host Hawkesdale Macarthur and may eclipse last week's 53.26 win over the Eagles.
Woorndoo's Grant Cameron kept the flag wavers busy kicking a smooth 17 goals.
Teammate Jordon Buckley booted 14 goals.
