Despite a slow start, Wickliffe-Lake Bolac has easily accounted for Glenthompson-Dunkeld in its round 12 match by 101 points on Saturday.
The visitors inability to score meant they went goalless in the first half but the Magpies left the door ajar with only seven goals to their name at the main break.
The second half was where the 2016 grand finalists did the damage, scoring 13 goals to four to win 20.13.133 to 4.8.32.
Danny Smith kicked four goals in his 400th to lead the Magpies’ goalkicking while Harley Hunter was named best on ground in the big win.
The win ensures the Magpies remain in third position on the ladder, ahead of reigning premiers Tatyoon in fourth place by 15 per cent with five games to play.
