Blighty big man Brody Lumber booted 10 goals as the Redeyes trounced home side Yarroweyah by 81 points on in Round 13 of the Picola & District Football League on Saturday.

It was Lumber’s biggest haul of the year, taking his season tally to 43.

The Redeyes shot out of the blocks, kicking nine goals to one in the opening term and setting the tone for the day.

Lumber was named best afield with running midfielders Judd Barnes and brothers Jaryd and Tristan Wilson giving the leading full forward some first class delivery.

Big man Jake Plattfuss also starred for the Redeyes, while Jaryd Wilson chipped in with three goals.

The win has fourth-placed Blighty two premiership points and a big percentage clear of fifth placed Berrigan.

In the reserves, Blighty had been trailing at half-time before a five-goal last term gave the visitors a 33-point win.

Lachie Calder was a key for the Redeyes with three goals, while Phil Williams chimed in with two majors.

Other good players for Blighty were reliable defender Josh Phillips, half-forward Callum Campbell, Dylan Moran, onballer Jarrod Andrews and young defender Tim Willis, who returned home from Assumption College to play
