Victor Harbor have regained top spot on the GSFL ladder after a strong showing against Yankalilla.

The Roos led at every break and never really looked like going down to Yank, who battled in vain in front of a home crowd.

While Yank fought bravely around the ball and Durdin provided up forward, booting five goals, Victor's class shone through and the Roos will be revelling in their form which will undoubtedly offer them a serious tilt at premiership glory, following recent years of finals relegation.

It was a day out for recent Roos recruits, with gun forward Luke Davey kicking another five goal bag. He continues to best defenders through exceptional aerial and ground-ball skills, backed with accurate goal kicking.

Fellow 2019 recruit Brok Schubert had his best game of the season, going forward and slotting four majors. It marks a return to form for the wingman who has missed a majority of the season after suffering a serious PCL injury in Round 2.

Benjamin Yeomans who is also a recent recruit had a solid game in the midfield, taking out third best behind Captain Ross, and the ever reliable Sam Basham continued his stellar form, kicking another four goals.

Basham remains third on the GSFL goal kicking standings on 57, with Davey close behind in fourth with 51. Mount Compass powerhouses Vitkunas (59) and Pinyon (86) remain well in front.

Gotch, Hodges and Durdin continued their strong form for Yankalilla and battled hard all day. Laba rounded out their top four, continuing his trademark body-on-the-line style of play.

Final scores were Yankalilla 11.11 (77) to Victor Harbor 18.13 (121)

Victor's triumph was Yankalilla's tribulation and the defeat marks another inconsistent performance for the Tigers.

At 5 and 10 with three Rounds to go, Yank are now firmly out of finals contention and will look for some consolation wins to build some confidence looking towards the 2020 season.
