The Heights lead at all three of the breaks before Mick McGuane's men pushed late to take the lead.

It was Caleb McPherson who showed nerves of steel, steading in the dying moments to put Avondale back in front with just seconds remaining. 

Big man Tom Russell proved to be one of Patrick Byrne's bests as he battled head-to-head manfully with Keilor's Andrew Browne.

Dean Galea did not line up against his former side, nor did Nicholas O'Kearney.

Maribyrnong Park caused the second eye-raising result in Strathmore Community Bank Premier Division, sneaking home against Aberfeldie by two points.

In an arm-wrestling match that saw the lead change multiple times, Daniel Oliver's running goal was the fatal blow to deliver the Lions the win.

Daniel Thompson's late set-shot gave Aberfeldie the chance for victory but the tough kick fell across the face of goal for a behind.

Chris Prowse's strong start to the season continued as one of Marby's bests, while Ryan Allan's swing forward again proved fruitful as he kicked five goals.

Moonee Valley sit atop of the Strathmore Community Bank Division Two ladder after defeating Oak Park by seven points at Ormond Park.

The Valley seemed to have the game in their control at half time as Shanon Carroll's men lead by 36 points, but a five-goal-to-one third term had the Kangaroos back in the hunt.

However, the Fog were able to settle late to secure the win leaving them the sole undefeated side in the division. 

Zac Di Giuseppe and Zac Taylor both continued their impressive starts to the season for their respective clubs, as they were once again named among the bests.

The Jets were able to get an early jump on the Valley as they held a one-goal lead at quarter time. 

It was all one-way traffic from then on as the Fog put on 11 goals to two for the rest of the match.

Amelia Radford kicked five goals for Moonee Valley in her first game of the season while her teammate, and leading goal kicker, Madeline Price snagged four.


Tigers Hold On In a Thriller

The win sees Westmeadows take second place on the Airport Toyota Women's - Division Two ladder.
