Williamstown remain on top of the Peter Jackson VFL ladder after a solid 33-point win over Port Melbourne at a soggy North Port Oval in round sixteen. The Seagulls booted the first five goals of the match and were never really troubled after that winning 14.12.96 to 10.3.63.
The loss for the Borough, ending their five game winning streak and making it tough for them to break into the top four with a hard run home. Williamstown are now one game clear in top spot and well placed to defend their title as reigning premiers and a possible top two finish.
Footscray remain in the hunt for a top four spot following a come-from-behind win over Richmond in round 14 of Peter Jackson VFL at VU Whitten Oval. The Bulldogs had trailed all day before former Essendon player, Lauchlan Dalgleish, booted the final three goals of the match to inspire his side to a nine point victory 11.8.74 to 9.11.65.
The Tigers chances of playing finals are all but over and despite playing well in patches in recent games, they haven't been able to find a win they desperately needed to stay in touch with the top eight. There was a good crowd on hand with plenty of interest in both forward lines featuring Bulldogs Tom Boyd (above) and dumped Tiger Tyrone Vickery.
