Port Melbourne returned to the winners list and a spot in the top eight after a comfortable 29-point win over Coburg in round eleven of Peter Jackson VFL. On a soggy Piranha Park, the visitors led from start to finish and despite being outscored by Coburg in the last quarter, recorded a solid victory winning 16.10.106 to 11.11.77.
Former Hawk and Lion, Jordan Lisle, helped himself to a game-high four goals with the Borough having eleven individual goal kickers. Thomas O'Sullivan was in fine form around the middle with 28 disposals and he received great support from skipper, Toby Pinwill (28) and Damian Mascitti (26) while Sam Crocker (24) launched many Borough attacks from deep in defence.
The Northern Blues pulled off a major upset in round ten of Peter Jackson VFL with a stirring 36-point win over the Box Hill Hawks at Box Hill City Oval. In cool and greasy conditions the Navy Blues took control of the match booting 11 goals to five in the second half to win running away 15.13.103 to 10.7.67.
It was the Blues third win in a row and inflicted the Hawks third loss in the past four. Exciting Blues young son-of-a-gun, Jack Silvagni, was again in the thick of it, booting four goals for the second week in-a-row and he was well supported up forward by Kristian Jaksch who also kicked four.
