LEARMONTH posted its third win of the Central Highlands Football League season, sweeping aside Skipton by 64 points largely due to a solo effort up forward fromBrodrick Campbell.

Campbell single-handedly outscored the Emus, booting seven goals in a virtuoso performance.

Hotondo Homes Lakies playingcoach Brenton Powell also praised Todd Curran, who was thrown into the middle with great effect after half time.

“Toddy won some hard balls for us in the middle, which enabled us to run away from them on the outside,” Powellsaid.

Best-on-ground Powell, who played his first match back from a serious hand injury,asked for a greater effort from his men after half time and they delivered in spades.

“I thought they were great, especially after dropping off last week,” he said.

After a second-term fightback, the Emus braced themselves for a big second half after key forward Cameron Postlethwaite closed the gap to just one point at the two minute mark of the third term.

The Lakies, however, had other plans. Jacob Werts replied with a mid-air volley a minute later to launch a seven-goal blitzkrieg from the home side.

Dave Box added two more and when Campbell slotted his fourth and fifth goals in quick succession, it was all over bar the shouting.

A miserly defence, led by Nathan Gudgeon and Paul Phillips, kept the visitors to just two goals after half time to help set up the big win.

Skipton will rue some early missed chances and a second half fade-out, despite the best efforts of Mitch Jones, Chris Vagg (two goals) and forward Tom Breed, who was dangerous early, but failed to convert.

Learmonth hasclimbed to 12thon the ladder following the win,while Skipton remains 14th.

Looking ahead to next weekend, the Lakies go in search of two victoriesin succession against nearby rivals Waubra, with Skipton getting a good chance to bounce back against Daylesford.
