Rushworth forward Rob Osborne has finished the season in three figure territory.

Rushworth forward Rob Osborne has finished the season in three figure territory.

In the Tigers’ final game of the home-and-away season, Osborne kicked the five goals he needed to go to 100 for the year.

Rushworth was well beaten, as Lancaster, on its way to a finals campaign, won by 72 points in a comprehensive display.

The final score was 17.18 (120) to 7.6 (48).

Osborne is the first player to reach the century mark in the Kyabram District Football League this season, with former Murchison-Toolamba coach Brent Chapman and Violet Town spearhead Rob Staff bringing up the magical mark last year.

He was on track to achieve the feat right from the moment he incredibly kicked 28 goals against Ardmona in round two.

After Rushworth annihilated the Cats by 348 points in that game, Ardmona dropped its senior team down to the reserves.

Osborne filled his boots again three weeks ago when he slotted 17 majors in a big win against Undera.

Meanwhile, Michael Hill continued his terrific form for the Wombats as he booted seven goals and was named best-on-ground.

Andrew Pettigrove, Chris Eddy, Steve Thomson, Jack Donnell and Brad Orr were in top form for the Wombats as they gear up for an elimination final showdown with Stanhope on Saturday.

Rushworth’s best were Jeremy Lambden, Todd Clarke, Brett Anderson, Zach Dearing and Jake Perry.
