That was until Saturday afternoon. The Towners put an exclamation mark on their five-match winning streak, thumping Clunes to the tune of 137 points.

The Towners climbed to 11th spot on the ladder following the result, which was set up in the opening minutes of the match.

The home team led by 39 points at quarter time and never looked back on its way to a huge triumph.

Dunnstown coach Justin Abrams said the club’s leaders like Aaron Brennan, Sam Jenkins and Harry McKimmie shone for his side. McKimmie and Rhys Cahir led the scoring with five goals each.

“We just had 22 contributors. We didn’t have a weak link at all and it was probably the best game that they’ve strung together,” Abrams said.

Liam Newton, Matthew Wrigley and Andrew Spence were named the Magpies’ best players.
