Moyston Willaura have started the 2021 MDFL strongly, banking two big wins in the first three rounds.
In round three the Pumas were dominant with a 171-point win over Caramut, showing the league their best is very good.
Zac Louder kicked another bag of 10 goals, while Ned Bohner, Jake Robinson and Jacob Bates were some of the Pumas best players.
Moyston Willaura senior coach Terry Keilar said the side have started the season well and the early season wins are building morale around the club.
"We have started okay and had good wins against Lake Bolac and Caramut and we have been able play our football and the way we want to play," he said.
"But we have started well and had some good wins which is always exciting to start the new season.
"We have had good commitment from the players right throughout preseason, since January.
"Being able to have everyone training together and having a clear, simple message about how we want to play has meant we have been able to play to a game plan that we want to, which is quite risk-taking and exciting.
"It's about taking on that centre corridor as much as we can and getting it to our key forwards."
"A couple of strong wins early on is good for morale, but it has been good to have community join in with lots of new faces around."
In round two the Pumas were beaten by Tatyoon, with Keilar hoping their side continue to learn and apply some of the lessons from that game to their round four match-up against SMW Rovers.
"We came up against a much stronger team on the day with Tatyoon who restricted our movement forward and won the centre clearances against us," he said.
"That is something we are working in that making sure we know what our role is when we don't have the footy and getting that two-way running.
"What we have found is it is really hard to tell who is tracking where.
"It has all been about taking the day as it comes, and the positive in that is that allows you to focus on your game and on yourselves."
