GORDONreturned to a more conventional mode of winning on Saturday, putting in a four-quarterperformance to annihilate Daylesford by 168 points on its home patch.

It was the Bulldogs that drew first blood via Matt Bolton from directly in front and Pat Rowe kept the visitors in touch with a clever snap mid-way through the first term.

From then on, however, the Gordon juggernaut began to roll, piling on the next 17 majors before Rowe added his second deep in the third term.

For the Eagles, in a very even performance, Chris McGuigan booted six goals, Ash Munari and Steve Patterson set up countless attacks and Tye Murphy was imperious in the centre of the ground. Adam Toohey booted four goals from all points of the compass, while Matt Raworth and Luke Gunnell continued their good form.

The Doggies were best served by defenders Ben Cooper, Jason Mackley and the indomitable Jesse Brown,who harassed, tackled and smothered all the way to the very end.
