FRANKSTON YCW secured a thumping win over Pines last weekend.
The ladder leading Stonecats have only been defeated once all year. They were at their best on Saturday, and put Pines to the sword.
Pines struggled to hit the scoreboard all afternoon. The Stonecats took advantage of the Pythons’s goalkicking woes, putting 18 goals on the board for the day.
Josh Patullo was excellent for YCW. He kicked five goals. Brenton Lambert kicked three.
Frankston YCW ended up winning by 74 points – 18.9 (117) to 5.12 (42).
Brenton Credlin, Lachlan Wallace, and Bailey Angwin were also among the Stonecats’ best.
Second-placed Mt Eliza also got a win on Saturday. They got the better of Frankston Bombers by 20 points.

HAWTHORN legend Luke Hodge ran out for a one-off appearance for Devon Meadows on Saturday.
A big crowd turned out to watch the AFL premiership captain pull on the boots. They were treated to a good game between the Panthers and Seaford.
Seaford raced out of the blocks. They took a five goal lead into the main break.
Hodge left the field with injury in the third term, but that didn’t dampen the Panthers’ spirits. They raced back in the second half to close the gap between the sides and eventually take the lead.
The Tigers managed to weather the storm, and took the lead back without much time left to play. They held on to claim a narrow six point win 12.9 (81) to 13.9 (87).
Chelsea and Pearcedale also played out a thriller on Saturday, with the game decided by a kick after the siren.
Pearcedale led all day long. They went into the final quarter with a 17 point lead.
Chelsea chipped away at the lead, bringing it down to four points. The final siren sounded with the ball in the hands of Chelsea’s Brayden Chapple, who had a chance to kick a goal to win the game.
