Kyneton was given a reality check in the Riddell District Football League as wet weather took over on Saturday.

After their best win of the season the previous week, the Tigers faced ladder leaders Riddell on Saturday afternoon.

The Bombers, who were playing at Kyneton Showgrounds for the first time, put out a convincing performance, keeping the Tigers goal less for the first three quarters.

The Bombers ensured they kept their good form going, winning 1310 (88)-1.8 (14).

Dean Galea was named best on ground, kicking six goals in the win.

James Gaff and Caleb Fisher were named the Tigers best.

The Bombers received a boost midweek with former player Matthew Darby returning to the club from Avondale Heights. Darby has also played in the Victorian Football League.

In other matches, Diggers Rest did just enough to overcome Macedon.

The Burras had to come from behind at three quarter time to get the 11.7 (73)-9.9 (63) win. Justin Tenaglia and Shaun Campbell were named the Burras best, with Brodie Meyers kicking three goals. The Burras sit in second spot after 11 rounds, a game behind Riddell. Melton Centrals had the bye.

It was a hard fought slog at Lancefield, with the Woodend-Hesket scraping across the line, 4.8 (32)-4.5 (29).

Wallan inflicted Romsey’s second straight loss despite being wasteful in front of goal.

The Magpies led throughout the contest but were never able to blow the Redbacks away.

In the end, the Magpies were able to do just enough to win, 6.14 (50)-3.6 (24).

Corey Viani was named the Magpies best, while Corey Pertzel was the Redbacks best.

In the win, the Magpies unveiled two mid-season signings.

Former Essendon and St Kilda player Jake Carlisle and goal kicker John Bellino both joined the Magpies from Craigieburn.

Carlisle kicked two goals in the win and was named one of the Magpies best.

The win moves Wallan above Romsey on the ladder.
