STREAK CONTINUES: North Whyalla crushed South Whyalla on Saturday to stay undefeated in 2021.

North Whyalla have continued their dominant start to the 2021 Whyalla Football League season, thumping a disappointing South Whyalla by 152 points on Friday.

The Magpies soared to a 4-0 record on the back of a scintillating display up forward by Daniel Collision (10 goals) and Sam Venning (9 goals).

The Demons stood little chance after a 5 goals to none opening term, and the game was effectively over by half time, ending in a scoreline of 27.14 (176) to 3.6 (24).

It's a good tune up for North, who will take on WFL powerhouse West Whyalla in a highly anticipated matchup next week.

The Dragons also recorded a big win on Saturday, smashing Roopena by 101 points to record their third straight win after being upset by Central in round 1.

While there was no stand-out up forward for West, their team shared the spoils, recording 11 individual goalkickers for the match.

Nathan Grzona recorded three majors while Ryder Kortman, Brock Maitland, Saul Tonkin and Ben English had two apiece.

Whyalla News medallist Ciaran Hollingworth-Hughes was in fine form for the Dragons, with Ryan and Shannon Winders also being among their best.

In the other Saturday game Weeroona Bay got home by 3 points in a thriller against Central Whyalla.

The Bays shot out to a 31-point lead in the opening term after slamming on the first five goals of the match, and the Roosters were playing catch-up for the rest of the game.

Anthony Jenkinson was the hero for Weeroona Bay, kicking three of their seven goals for the game, while Lee Ringland added a much-needed two.

Joshua Waugh, Fraser Sinkinson and Aaron Rogers were best on ground for the Bays, while Jesse Marshall and Joshua Maddigan (2 goals) battled hard for the reigning premiers.

Next week West and North will clash in a Saturday blockbuster at Bennett Oval, with the Magpies looking to stay perfect and the Dragons still being the team to beat.

Central Whyalla will aim to get back in the winners column against South Whyalla at Memorial Oval on Saturday. South have won the one game for the season and will be hungry for their second victory.

On Sunday winless Roopena will clash with much-improved Weeroona Bay at Bennett Oval.
