WONTHAGGI Power played strong attacking football and maintained the pressure for four quarters, not allowing Leongatha back into the game after a great start.
It was all out attack from the first bounce with goals from Rod Tack, Jake Thomas, Reece Jones and Tim Gedye.
With Will Joplin dominating in the ruck, onballers Jye Read, Luke O’Connor, Layton Membrey and Tom Wells were given first use of the ball, frequently driving the ball forward.
In defence Mark McCall, Wayne Luke and Leki Asa Leasua were standing tall against the Parrots’ key forwards.
Two late goals to Ben Doran and Jackson Harry kept Leongatha in touch. The first goal to Mark Coghlan saw Leongatha move closer on the scoreboard and the game was tightening up. However further goals to Tack, Thomas, Jones and Gedye but Power well in control at the big break.
Chris Rump in the ruck for Leongatha was doing well as were Nick Moore, Jess Hickey and Will Geisler but the gap was widening.
Matt Ware goaled early for Power in what was to be a tight contest and Ben Doran got one back as the siren sounded to end what had been a tough twenty minutes.
The final quarter saw Wonthaggi Power take full control kicking a further four goals and holding the Parrots goalless.
Wells and Tack provided two goals each to stamp their authority on the game.
It had been a strong performance in a high standard match.
Power now plays Traralgon in what promises to be another great match up.
Final score: Wonthaggi Power 13.10 (88) def Leongatha 4.6 (30).
