BUNGAREE breezed through its top-of-the-table showdown with Learmonth, continuing its undefeated season with consummate ease on Saturday afternoon.

The Demons collected a 70-point victory to remain a game clear at the head of the Central Highlands Football League ladder, handing the Lakies their second-straight defeat in the process.

Learmonth managed just two goals for the entire afternoon - both in the third term - and were wasteful in attack, kicking 2.12.

Big full-forward Josh Brown had a day out for the Demons, bagging five majors in a standout display, while skipper Joel Mahar set the tone early with a strong display through the centre. The likes of Mitch Bruns, off half-back, and Heath Pyke, around the ground, also found plenty of the ball in a complete performance from the winners.

Meanwhile, Hepburn broke a run of four-straight spa country derby defeats with a 47-point victory against Daylesford.

The Burras held their arch-rivals to just three goals for the day to collect their first win over the Dogs since 2011.

Beaufort put a dampener on Carngham-Linton's premiership reunion celebrations, triumphing by five points at Snake Valley, while Ballan bounced back into the winner's stall with a 54-point victory against Dunnstown.

In other games, Buninyong beat Rokewood-Corindhap by 35 points, Creswick trounced Smythesdale by 226 points, Springbank brushed aside Newlyn to win by 44 points, Gordon got home over Skipton by 43 points and Waubra was too good for Clunes, prevailing by 66 points.
