Nathan Hicks booted three goals for Numurkah in its win against Congupna.

Another huge victory for Numurkah has lifted it into second position on the Murray Football League ladder.

The Blues ragdolled Congupna 25.18 (168) to 6.3 (39) on Saturday in a dominant performance.

Dynamic forward duo Josh Evans (seven goals) and Nathan Hicks (three) were back together and performing well, while 10 individual Numurkah players managed to hit the scoreboard in the romp.

Evans and Hicks have struggled with injury during the first half of the season, but have combined for a cumulative total of 56 goals from 13 games, and will only get more dangerous as the year progresses.

Brad Vassal again dominated through the middle of the ground, while Lachlan Baldwin and Sam Ferguson tried hard for The Road in the defeat.

●A 13-goal to one second half allowed Mulwala to record a large victory against Tongala.

The Lions led at quarter-time before the Blues fought back to lead by six points at the main change.

From there it was all one-way traffic, with Ash Froud’s eight goals helping his side to the 20.12 (132) to 10.4 (64) win.

Jordan Souter booted three for the Blues and was also their best.

●Cobram finds itself two matches behind sixth-placed Moama after losing to the Magpies.

Rhys Archard was again the hero for Moama, booting seven goals to help it record the 12.19 (91) to 10.13 (73) result.

It is the second straight week Archard has been a clear best on ground in a crucial game for his club and the star has 18 majors for the season to help fill the hole up forward left by a large injury list.

Tyron Baden was again the most influential Tiger, kicking two majors in the defeat.

●In the final match of round nine, Echuca United returned to the winners list at the expense of Deniliquin.

In what has become a well worn pattern, the Rams started well before fading out of the contest, with Todd Gallagher booting two goals.

For the Eagles, Rowan Priest (four goals) and his brother Farran did most of the damage.
