Will Pucovski acknowledges his 50 at the Albert Ground

Greenvale Kangaroos' James Rosewarne, Melbourne's Will Pucovski and Ringwood's Zak Evans - three youngsters - were today's Premier stars. Eight of today's winning teams snared a bonus point, with Melbourne Uni the only winners to miss out.

 

Ringwood maintained its unbeaten record with a good win over Prahran at Toorak Park. In a match reduced to 46 overs due to a late start, the Rams's 4/214 (Jackson Freeman 61*) proved too many for Prahran (158). Zak Evans (5/27) and Matt Fotia (3/34) did the damage with the ball. Prahran had a chance while opener Adam Bull (68) remained at the crease, but when he departed at 6/135, the innings fell away. The Rams grabbed the Don Mathieson Trophy with their victory.

 

Melbourne defeated Essendon at the Albert Ground. The Demons' 4/271 was set up by Will Pucovski (136), with his third Premier century, with support from Cameron White (66) in his 100th Premier match. Essendon fell short with 191.

 

Greenvale Kangaroos have broken their duck with a good win over Frankston Peninsula complete with a bonus point at Greenvale Reserve. Star for the Roos was James Rosewarne, who followed his 5/22 with 52 not out with the bat - both career-best efforts.

 

Geelong skipper Eamonn Vines guided his side to a win over Casey-South Melbourne at Casey Fields. Chasing the home side's 9/169, Vines (74*) and Josh McDonald (61 off 42 balls, 6 fours, 4 sixes) saw the Cats home with a bonus point. Vines' brilliant start to the season sees him atop the averages and aggregates with 408 runs at 136.

 

Footscray stamped its mark on the season with an emphatic win over Camberwell Magpies at Merv Hughes Oval. Matt Underwood (81), Dean Russ (51) and Greg Munro (40) set up the Bulldogs' competitive 5/238. The Magpies' reply was always struggling and eventually folded for 134.

 

Northcote was just as impressive with a big win over Carlton. Dragons' skipper Steve Taylor had his side away to a flier with a brisk 64 (71 balls, 3 fours, 4 sixes), while the top eight all made double-figure contributions in their 7/270. Carlton's reply at 7/111 and, although Xavier Crone (44* off 40 balls) provided some respectability towards the end, the Dragons prevailed by 90 runs, snaring a bonus point in the process.

 

Melbourne Uni inflicted Dandenong's first defeat of the season, with the Students 7/179 (James Bett 53) successfully chasing down the Panthers' 8/169 at Uni.

 

St Kilda beat Kingston Hawthorn, with a bonus point, but not before some nervous moments in the run-chase at Walter Galt Oval. The Saints bowled out the Hawks for just 102, with spinners Michael Beer (3/12) and Jon Merlo (3/25) doing well. Lachlan Holmes (51) led the reply, but after he was dismissed the score deteriorated to 7/99 before Josh Bartlett got the Saints across the line.
