Following a loss to the reigning premiers, SOUTH LAUNCESTON were always going to be hungry, tearing shreds off Devonport 8-0.
The Coastal side headed into the match as ladder-leaders and yet to concede a major all year but within 12 minutes they had let through two - courtesy of a Kurt Budgeon goal, followed by an Al McBain penalty stroke.
The pressure was relentless as the pair added another as Sam Elliston-Buckley (two) and singles to Brad Buchanan and Jarrod Cunningham rounded out the total.
As Devonport's unbeaten run ended, BURNIE BAPTIST mirrored the scoreline with an 8-0 win over City Marians to continue theirs.
Lachie Murfet and Khan Riley scored hat-tricks as the winning side effectively used overheads to eliminate Marians' defence as Jono Hawkins was again his team's best in defeat.
LAUNCESTON CITY were able to continue their perfect start to the season at the detriment of South Burnie's, claiming a 2-1 win at home.
Beau Cornelius slotted a drag flick early in the second half before Kaleb Nielsen followed suit for a 2-0 lead.
South Burnie's Jordan Dart scored a late tomahawk to put five minutes of pressure on City but they held on.
SMITHTON boasted six individual scorers as the Saints ran out 6-0 victors over West Devonport.
Alexander Poke, Will Dwyer, Kade Wooldrage, Harry Wright, Eddie Popowski and Brayden Hine found the back off the net while Clayton House claimed the three votes for the Saints.
Fresh recruit Alexander Walter continued his fine form for West alongside coach Jye Dodt.
