Strathmerton edged a percentage closer to knocking Jerilderie off the top of the Picola & District Football League ladder on Saturday, with a big win against home side the Deni Rovers.

The Bulldogs had the win in the bag after booting nine goals to one in the first quarter at Memorial Park.

Aside from two behinds in the second term, the Roos were unable to score again with Strathmerton running out 212-point winners.

Final score: Strathmerton 34.18 (222) def. Deni Rovers 1.4 (10).

Josh Evans and Louis Pinnuck shared 14 of the Bulldogs’ goals, while young gun Adrian Crestani booted six.

For the Rovers, Kerry Davison made it six goals from his last two outings after threading the home team’s solitary major early in the match.

Veteran centreman John Glowrey battled hard all day for the Rovers and was rewarded with his team’s best-on-ground honours, while Marc Braybon was gallant in the ruck.

Young backman Angus McCalman continued his rise from reserves premiership player to seniors regular with another solid display, while teammate Daniel Mison was also impressive.

Matt Dowling was once again a shining light in defence and was named in the Roos’ best alongside his brother John.

The Bulldogs’ best players were Mark Luci and Brayden Coburn.

In the reserves, Strathmerton ran away with a 18.12 to nil win.

Strathy’s Daniel Allen finished with eight majors, while Deni was best served by George Trewhitt, Wade Hilton and Matt Boon.
