With finals fast approaching, the Murray Football League’s best teams have begun to flex their collective muscle.

With finals fast approaching, the Murray Football League’s best teams have begun to flex their collective muscle.

Moama completely dominated Tongala, recording a resounding 26.19 (175) to 5.3 (33) win.

Forward gun Tyler Jones could not be kept quiet for two weeks in a row, amassing nine majors to comfortably outscore the Blues off of his own boot.

Eleven individual Magpies hit the scoreboard in the victory, but despite not finding a goal himself it was Rhys Archard who was named the most influential player on the field.

Bailey Waasdorp showed his class in defeat for Tongala, while teammate Lewis Cooper kicked two goals.

●Echuca United handed Congupna its second heavy defeat in a row, piling on 20.10 (130) to 3.9 (27).

Zac Mihocek did the most damage for the Eagles with six majors, while Farran Priest (five goals) and Nic Denahy (two) were the only other Echuca United players to hit the scoreboard twice in what was a great team performance.

Brayden Worsnop and Jamie Ferguson had the most impact for the away side.

Joe Dwyer was again Congupna’s best in a big loss.

●Finley would have found solace in restricting Barooga’s attacking power on Saturday, but the Hawks still managed to win 18.16 (124) to 5.7 (37).

Lucas Olson and Billy Andrew each kicked five goals in the big win, beating out plenty of regular Barooga forward contributors, with Jake Russell (one goal) clearly best afield.

For the Cats, Charles Hawkins booted four majors while Lachie Small continued to impress as captain.

●Deniliquin is a legitimate chance to claim seventh spot, and the title of best of the rest in the competition, after drawing level with Cobram on points.

The Rams shook off an early challenge from Rumbalara to comfortably take victory 20.13 (133) to 10.4 (64).

Ben Nisbet (seven goals), Sam Willoughby (four), Todd Gallagher (three) and Liam Pitts (two) enjoyed the scoring avalanche of their side.

Beau Jackson (four goals) impressed once more for Rumba.
