Lexton’s slow start to the season seemed a world away at the weekend, with the Tigers completely dominating Maryborough Rovers to claim a 68- point win.
Much more was expected of the clash with both teams up until Saturday having claimed one win each, only over struggling teams Campbells Creek and Dunolly, and both were on the hunt for a competitive showing.
The Tigers were already out in front by 24 points at the first quarter break and increased their lead in the following three terms by a minimum of 16 points.
A three-quarter time score of 3.6 (24) to 10.10 (70) was brutal enough for Rovers’ home audience, but a six goal final quarter to the Tigers drove home a heartbreaking loss which has now seen the Pies fall into 11th place on the ladder.
