East Point and an improving Redan will go to the break for the AFL Vic Community Championships as the only unbeaten combinations in the Ballarat Football League.
East Point stretched its winning run to four with a calculated 31-point win over Sebastopol at the Eastern Oval on Saturday.
Redan, which had a bye in the opening round, made it three on end with a 25-point victory over Lake Wendouree at the City Oval.
Sebastopol took the game right up to East Point in the first half, but the Kangaroos took the match away in a one-sided third term.
East Point added five goals and smothered Sebastopol's forwards - keeping the visitors goalless.
The Burra's first second half goal did not come until 12 minutes into the last quarter, but by then it faced a 36-point deficit.
This did spark a rally. Sebastopol kicked three unanswered goals to be within 17 points on 22 minutes, but East Point steadied and closed out the game on the back a big defensive effort which earned the praise of coach Jake Bridges.
Although Sebastopol has just one win, coach Leigh Hutchinson believes it is not far away now that it is starting to get some first choice players back after injury.
REDAN set up a winning break with a five-goal first quarter.
Coach Jarrett Giampaolo has put a lot of emphasis on the Lions' starts and it has paid dividends.
Redan led by 27 points at quarter time - a margin Lake Wendouree was never able to break down.
Every time the Lakers looked like they might get a run on Redan had the answers.
MELTON ended Darley's unbeaten run with a defensively focused 30-point triumph at MacPherson Park.
The Bloods restricted Darley to just three goals in the opening three quarters and they all came in the first term.
Darley remarkably added only three behinds in the second and third quarters.
The Devils finally broke the shackles with six-goal last quarter, but all that did was add respectability to the scoreboard.
The honours well and truly belonged to Melton as Braedan Kight returned to his dangerous best in attack with five goals.
BACCHUS Marsh brought up its first win of the season in grand style in front of a home crowd at Maddingley Park.
The Cobras demolished a hapless Ballarat by 106 points.
It was also a break-through moment for Bacchus Marsh coach Peter Davey, who tasted success for the first time with the club.
The Cobras and Swans each went into the game winless after three games, but that was where the similarities ended as Bacchus Marsh went on a rampage.
With Aaron Willitts kicking five goals and first-year recruit Jake de Winter four, the Marsh put the game away with eight majors in the second term.
And it was much the same in the third quarter with the Cobras adding another six goals, while Ballarat struggled to make any impact on the scoreboard.
Ballarat and Melton South remain the only teams yet to win.
SUNBURY bounced back with a 42-point win over North Ballarat City at Sunbury.
Under pressure after just one win its its first three outings, the Lions took the game away from North with a six-goal third quarter.
This gave Sunbury a 44-point lead - well out of City's reach.
