The Wyndham derby checklist is full of ticks for Werribee Districts in Western Region Football League division 1.

In three outings against the other two top-tier Wyndham clubs this season, the Tigers are a perfect three-from-three, beating Wyndhamvale on two occasions and Hoppers Crossing on the other.

The Tigers will face Hoppers Crossing in a fortnight in a bid to claim a Wyndham sweep.

It is a little bit of joy in what has been a largely difficult season for Werribee Districts.

A resounding 10-goal win over Wyndhamvale at Wyndham Vale South Oval on Saturday was at least enough to see the Tigers break back into the top five.

The Tigers had 10 individual goalkickers, including two each to Jackson Menadue, Joey Halloran, Andrew Panayi and Mark Pozzuto.

While Werribee Districts will go in as hot favourite against St Albans at Kings Park Reserve this Saturday, second-last Wyndhamvale will be a little anxious against bottom side Caroline Springs at Town Centre Oval, as the result of that game could have a major bearing on relegation scrap at the foot of the table.

Hoppers Crossing moved up to third on the ladder with a comfortable 46-point win over St Albans at Kings Park Reserve. The Warriors had too much firepower for the Saints, led by seven-goal small forward Jordan Mead.

In division 2, Manor Lakes consolidated its hold on third spot with a 69-point battering of Newport Power at Bryan Martyn Oval.

Five of the Storm’s six goalkickers were multiples, including four to Jackson Lesko and three each to Brandon Turner and Nathan Montague. Mitchell Davis capped a best-on-ground display with two goals as the Storm snapped a two game losing skid.

In division 3, Tarneit came back from 13 points down at quarter-time to overrun Braybrook by 34 points at Pennell Reserve. Aaron Molivas was nigh on unstoppable for the Titans, kicking seven goals and taking his season tally to 22 in nine games.

The Titans are two games clear in third and one-and-a-half games behind second-placed rivals Wyndham Suns.

Sanctuary Lakes was no match for Sunshine Heights, losing heavily by 75 points at Ainsworth Reserve.
