Latrobe have sent a reminder to the rest of the competition and Wynyard have extended their lead at the top of the ladder in the latest round of the NWFL on Saturday. 

The Demons welcomed Devonport to Latrobe and clearly wanted to avenge for their unexpected three-point loss to the Magpies earlier this season with an eight goal to none opening quarter setting the tone. 

Latrobe booted 29 goals on their home turf for the day to destroy the young Magpies 29.17 (191) to 8.5 (53). 

Chris Boon was simply unstoppable in the forward 50 and booted 11 goals for the Demons in the win, kicking off the day with two goals in the opening quarter. 

The Magpies got on the board with three goals in the second term as Brett McCall, Sam Robinson and Jack Forster kicked truly but the Demons added six as well to lead by 79 points at half time. 

The Demons then kicked eight more in the third term with Boon on fire, adding six for the quarter to take his tally to 10 at three quarter time. 

Devonport lifted again in the final quarter and kicked four majors to Latrobe’s seven as the home side helped out their percentage with a 148-point win. 

Boon led the way with 11 goals for the Demons and fittingly kicked the last major of the day while Josh Holland finished with four goals with Adam Jeffrey, Brodie Deverell and Nathan Rataj all finishing with three each. 

Brett McCall booted two goals for the Magpies. 

Wynyard extended their position at the top of the NWFL ladder with a convincing win over Penguin in the only other clash on Saturday.

The Cats led at every change to win 16.14 (110) to the Two Blues 3.11 (29). 

The home side booted four goals to one in the opening term before an even second quarter had them up by 28 points at the half. 

They put the foot down in the third term, booting seven goals to one before adding three more in the last term and kept Penguin goalless to finish the game in style. 

Brody Denehey continued his stellar form in front of goals for the home side with four majors on Saturday while while team mates Kallum Kubicki, Jye Gardam and Zac Marshall all kicked three apiece.
