ELEVEN individual goal scorers helped Mundaring inflict a 153-point loss on Mt Helena in their Hills Football Association round three clash at Elsie Austin oval on Sunday.

With the Roos playing an overall team game even Connor Musto managed to drift forward from his back pocket position to score a goal as Mundaring 26.28 (184) to 4.7 (31) scored their first win of the season.

Austin Thomas worked his forward line taking some very strong marks to finish the game with six goals.

Bo Read and Jai Blackman found themselves under siege in the backline as the Roos continued to push forward.

Luke O’Keefe was dominating the ruck taps which were being well read and cleared by Braeden Hilgert and Dylan O’Loghlen in his 150th game.
The Roos lined up to have a shot on goal as they kicked 12 in the second quarter.

Matthew O’Keefe went into the ruck Clayton Thomas, Tyler Levett, Tyson Hamling and Sam Butler all joined in on the goal kicking spree.

Rhys Nickisson was having his own way on a wing while also managing to drift forward. The Lions were desperately looking for answers.

Michael Hine and Daniel Bulla battled hard around the packs.

Mitch Dreyer kicked the ball forward on several occasions only to see it being cleared back over his head.

By the main break Mundaring had opened up a commanding 103-point lead.

The Lions were getting their hands on the ball, although the relentless pressure that they were being put under was causing many errant disposals and turnovers.

Another seven goals to two in the third had the Roos bounding toward a strong win.

Mt Helena managed to kick another two goals in the last as Mundaring completely lost their direction, adding one goal and thirteen points.

Even though the game was well decided they would not be overly happy with that return.
