BATTLE OF THE BULLDOGS: South's Ronald Fuschtei reaches to seize control of the ball in Saturday's triumphant clash against Port in Port Pirie.

West Augusta Football Club were on the winning end of a 100-point scoreline this week, defeating Central Augusta by a devastating nine goals.

Jay Dalla Santa took only 12 seconds to score the opening goal of match, before Christopher Johnston and Slade Laube followed suit.

With just the blink of an eye West were three goals in front, leaving the Bloods stunned.

A quick goal from Dean Miller gave Centrals a start, but Duane Von Senden answered with a goal of his own. Cementing a 21-point lead for the Hawks going into the first break.

In a much more competitive second quarter, West still managed to kick the first three. Tariek Newchurch had a brilliant few minutes, booting three goals and landing himself on the best player list just behind in-form captain, Joe Packard.

Centrals mustered only two goals in the second term, heading into half time 18-61.

Central's looked awake in the second half with Tom Baulderstone kicking four goals to keep his team from an embarrassing defeat. But it wasn't enough.

Stand out games from Laube, Braden Allen and Jermaine Stuart ensured a big win for West Augusta.

Three goals from Ty Harrison and a final one through the middle from Declan Duffy sealed the win for the Hawks, 57-111.

South Augusta def Port

South came out on top this week in the battle of the bulldogs, leaving Port winless after round three.

But it took Souths a little longer than usual to warm up, hitting the quarter time break 8-points down.

The reigning premiers came out firing in the second quarter, booting the first three goals to enter half time in the lead.

A bye in the SANFL saw the the return of prodigal son, Aziel Stuart who boosted the Bulldogs attack.

Stuart combined well with best on ground Kriston Thompson and an equally impressive Kahran Mckenzie. Caleb Ritter held up the Bulldogs defence and after an even tussle in the third quarter, Souths exploded in the final term to kick four unanswered goals.

Matt Downey was brilliant, taking marks across the ground and securing centre clearances for Souths.

Inaccuracy in the Bulldogs forward 50 kept the margin a lot closer than it should have been. In the end Souths came away with a win, 49-90.
