WAUBRA held Springbank goalless for the entire afternoon to win an epic scrap in the mud at Wallace by 17 points.

Roos coach Jason Allen turned up the heat on the under-the-pump Tigers during the week, and his side needed just two goals to secure a 2.7 (19) to 0.2 (2) triumph on Saturday afternoon.

Allen and the returning Tom Nijam booted the majors, with the win leaving Waubra third on the ladder and the GJ Gardner Tigers seventh, just a game clear of the chasing bunch outside the top eight.

It has taken all year, but Hepburn has finally cracked it for a spot inside the Central Highlands Football League top four following a 23-point victory over Learmonth.

The Burras have replaced the Lakies in fourth spot on the table following the 8.13 (61) to 5.8 (38) win.

It will be a day of mixed emotions for the victors, which sprung out of the blocks to lead by 48 points at half time, but managed just four behinds after the long break to limp over the line.

The result is an eighth-straight success for the reigning premiers and a third loss in four weeks for the Lakies, which slip to sixth.

Gordon claimed another big scalp with a five-goal win over Daylesford.

The Eagles have now jumped to fifth as a result of the sixth-straight triumph.
