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.
