Eltham will be looking to continue its unbeaten run when it travels to Watsonia. The host will be looking to register its first win of the 2018 season.

The Panthers were dominant in their 63-point win over Thomastown at Eltham Central Park last week. The Panthers booted eight goals in the first quarter and were never really troubled, even when they were outscored by six points in the third term.

Brandon Freeman had an instant impact in his first senior appearance for the season, kicking seven goals and being the best player on the park. His inclusion and performance demonstrated the depth of an already strong outfit.

After showing positive signs during its Round 2 loss to Lower Plenty, Watsonia trailed right throughout its loss to Diamond Creek last week and was outscored in each quarter at Coventry Oval.

Kyle Page was the Saints’ only multiple goal-scorer with three goals, while Matthew Gibbs, Matthew Crompton and Daniel Gervasoni each produced solid showings in their side’s third-consecutive defeat.
