    BIG WIN: Ararat Eagles senior footballer Tom Taurau. The Eagles are undefeated this season.

Ararat Eagles clear leaders in Mininera

By Jonathan Box 

Mininera and District Football League has marked the halfway point of the season with Tatyoon and Ararat Eagles still showing dominance and remaining undefeated. 

Tatyoon had a relatively easy day out last weekend in round nine matches, when it beat bottom of the ladder Moyston-Willaura by more than 26 goals. 

Anthony Rosato, Joel McNaughton and Sam Anderson were the better players for the Hawks.

The team will be looking to these boys to put in another big performance this week when they play Lismore-Derrinallum.

Lismore-Derrinallum sit third on the ladder, having only dropped the one game this season to Ararat. 

The Demons had a close encounter last week against Wickliffe-Lake Bolac, which saw the Demons trailing at three-quarter time. 

But a big six-goal to nothing last quarter saw them come away with the win.

Josh Anderson, Charlie Brett and Lachlan Bryant were all good performers for Lismore-Derrinallum, however they will need a whole-team performance and a solid start to have a show with Tatyoon.

Ararat Eagles should have no trouble continuing their winning streak this week when they travel to Caramut.

Caramut, with only one win to their name this season, had another tough day at the office last week going down to Hawkesdale-Macarthur to the tune of 12 goals.

Jacob Lacy and Jarrod Petherick were the better players for the Swans, but despite their best efforts, they were unable to secure another win.

For the Eagles it has been Ben Robertson, Damian Joiner, Jaydo Wright and Jackson Taurau who have been performing well on the field and have been continuing to do so week in, week out. This weekend will become another notch on their belt in the hopes to keep their undefeated run continuing throughout the season.

In other games, Glenthompson-Dunkeld will host Great Western, Wickliffe-Lake Bolac plays Hawkesdale-Macarthur at home, Moyston-Willaura will travel to Mininera to take on SMW Rovers and Penshurst will host Woorndoo-Mortlake.
