Avenel has consolidated its spot inside the KDFL top six with a 67-point victory over Ardmona.
The Swans saw off a potentially tricky challenge from the visitors with its star players leading the way.
Pre-season recruits Mick Dundon, Don Stirling and Michael Morgan were Avenel’s best, with Stirling kicking four goals and Cael McCarthy, Nathan Thomas and player-coach Cameron Gillett grabbing three each.
Others to shine included recent recruit Jeremy Meek, Josh Brinkhuizen and Cal Williams.
The win lifts Avenel to fifth place on percentage from Undera and Lancaster, ahead of a trip to Girgarre on Saturday.

The Swans had an easy 75-point win over the bottom-placed Cats, keeping the opposition to a solitary behind in the second half.
Until then it had been a reasonably close game but Nick McDonald kicked five goals in a best-on-ground effort and Dan Zoch added another four. Others to shine for Avenel included Mark Cameron, Robbie Sidebottom, Jacob Story and Hank Woldhuis.

For all its struggles in the senior grades Ardmona usually has a useful thirds side and so it proved as it replaced the Swans at the top of the table with an upset seven-point victory.
In a low scoring game Avenel had its nose in front for most of the contest but the Cats finished best to take the four points.
For the Swans Cody Hogan kicked four goals while better players included ‘‘David’’ Jim, Reece Barns, Mitch Berry, Tom Jacobson, Hayden Gawne and Josh McDonald.
