OLD SCOTCH ended LILYDALE's unbeaten form in spectacular fashion on Saturday, winning 12.12 (84) to 11.7 (73).
The Demons got off to their usual hot start, leading the Thistles 48-16 at the half.
But the latter were able to boot seven goals in the third, topped off by three more in the fourth to make for a ripper comeback win.
Lilydale's Sonny Whiting had another solid outing, leading the team with three goals.
Old Scotch's Charles Eastoe also tallied three goals - he was followed up by Tom Allison and George Walker who scored two apiece.
Fellow top team EAST COAST were able to take care of business against UTAS at Newnham, cruising to a 20.20 (140) to 5.0 (30) win.
Much like Whiting last week, Swans forward Nicholas Child looked nigh on unstoppable, kicking a ridiculous 11 goals against a winless UTAS.
UTAS' Adam McDermott had an admirable outing for his side, tallying three goals.
MEANDER VALLEY came crashing down to Earth against PERTH after winning their last two games.
It was a close contest throughout, but a better third quarter had the Magpies soar over the Suns 11.13 (79) to 8.11 (59).
Perth were able to spread the scoring across the team, with Jake Carins, Jakob Williams and Ben Elmer all scoring two goals each.
Suns player-coach Damien Rhind booted three to lead his team in the scoring.
Being down Jay Schulz among a number of forwards didn't faze OLD LAUNCESTONIANS, who nabbed themselves a convincing win over BRIDPORT 12.9 (81) to 8.5 (53).
OL's Thomas Chugg had a career game over the Swans, booting six goals.
Bridport's Lachlan Mason and Joseph Krushka were their side's top goalscorers with two each.
A winless EVANDALE were unable to keep pace with ST PATS, who blew them out of the water 16.14 (110) to 2.3 (15).
After scoring their opponents' total in the first quarter, the Saints were comprehensive on entries with the scoring a reflection of that.
Jakes King and Kilby were St Pats' top scorers with four and three majors respectively.
