It does not get much more convincing than this.

Reigning premier Picola United made a mess of cellar dweller Yarroweyah on Saturday, defeating the away side 33.23 (221) to 0.4 (4) at Picola Recreation Reserve.

Remarkably, United booted 12 goals in the second term to enter the main break 111 points in front of their hapless opponent, and continued to pile on the pain until the final siren sounded.

The home side had only 10 individual goalkickers in the big win, with Kian Wise (seven goals), Dylan Cunningham (six), Adam Jorgensen (six), Tim Scadden (four) and Taylor Beard (three) filling their boots in convincing fashion.

Andrew Jones was Yarroweyah’s best player in the defeat.

●Deniliquin kept its slim finals chances alive with a hard-fought win against Tocumwal.

The Rovers had to come from behind at the final change to engineer the 11.10 (76) to 10.9 (69) victory, with Terry Lumbar (six goals) dominating proceedings.

Addison Milner was also outstanding in the triumph, while Bloods Dane Maxwell, Zeke Flanagan, Dylan Flanagan (four goals) and David Farrell (three) tried hard all day.

●Berrigan could not close the door on the Rovers, going down to Strathmerton 13.10 (88) to 16.7 (103).

Tom Irvine was a standout for the Saints, kicking seven goals, but it was not enough to get his side across the line.

Matt Shannon and Adam Graham impressed for the Bulldogs.

●The final Picola District Football League north-west clash saw Jerilderie comfortably defeating Mathoura.

Aaron Purcell (seven goals) and Marc Shaw (six) were two Demons who took the opportunity to significantly trouble the scorers in the 26.16 (172) to 6.12 (48) victory.

Blair Henery was the best player on the field for the victorious side, while Luke Schwencke and Jack Keogh starred for the Timbercutters.
