Old Scotch put on 11 goals in a brilliant opening term to blast Old Launcestonians off the park in a 125-point thrashing on Friday night.

The reigning division two premiers continued the hard work at the back end to also keep its rivals goalless for the next two quarters.

Forward Michael Murfett nailed six goals to drive the Thistles to a 21.16 (142) to 2.5 (17) result under lights at the NTCA Ground.

Uni-Mowbray provided a fast start in its division one encounter, notching up a six goal-to-nil first quarter and another six in the second to lead a battling Prospect by 69 points at the half.

Despite being held goalless during the third term, the Eagles had no problems in scoring an emphatic 18.16 (124) to 5.9 (39) win. 

The Eagles registered just its second victory of the year, bouncing back from a 77-point loss to Perth last round a fortnight ago.

Hayden Chrzanowski was an unlikely hero up in front of goals for Uni-Mowbray in his four-goal effort at home.
