The home team shared around the goals, with Borthwick kicking 5 goals among five multiple goalkickers.

WILLIAMSTOWN 17.15 (117) d WERRIBEE 6.10 (46)

Williamstown has moved to top spot on the VFL ladder on the back of a sixth straight win. The Seagulls accounted for Werribee with a 12-goal to one second half, slotting the last 11 goals of the game unanswered.  Werribee led in the first term by 17 points, off the back of three first term goals by Lindsay Thomas (see vision below), but it was all the Seagulls after quarter time. Williamstown produced six multiple goalkickers, locking in a top two finish to the season. The win was a fitting result for captain Ben Jolley in his 250th game, with coach Andy Collins celebrating his 200th VFL game as a coach. The win pushed Werribee outside of the top 8 on percentage, after Collingwood’s big percentage boost.

Leading goalkickers: Williamstown – Schultz, Cavarra, Dunell 3 Marcon, Cordy, Masters 2 / Werribee – Thomas 3

Form: Williamstown – W W W W W / Werribee – L L W L L
