A fast start proved to be enough for Nagambie senior football side as it held on to beat defending premier Murchison on Saturday.
The Lakers kicked five goals to one in the first term and while the Grasshoppers wore away at the lead for the rest of the game, Nagambie managed to hold on by four points.
Paddy Rattray kicked five goals for the Lakers, while standouts included Jason Shiels, in what must be his best game since his comeback, Ben and Jackson Hutton, Steve Barber and Willie Tranter.

Murchison are third on the ladder for a reason and they showed why with a 128-point victory over the Lakers.
Nagambie kicked its only goal for the game through Michael Sloan in the third term and he was also the side’s best player. Others to shine included Michael Mensfeld, Riley Bazeley, Bo Kelly, Max Lister and Ryan Ritchie.
The Grasshoppers fielded at least three ex-Lakers in their side, Harley Taylor-Lloyd, Rory Oliver and Mitchell Burt.
