GALLERY: Port Fairy upsets Portland in thriller, North pinches win

PORT Fairy caused a boilover in the Hampden league on Saturday, scoring a three-point win against flag fancy Portland at Gardens Oval.

The Seagulls made an emphatic response to their round one capitulation to Koroit, defeating the Tigers 10.19 (79) to 11.10 (76).

North Warrnambool Eagles defender Darcy Keast kicked the winning goal in a see-sawing thriller against Terang Mortlake.

The Eagles won, 13.10 (88) to 12.13 (85). 

The Bloods, which trailed by 16 points at quarter time, took a one-point lead into the final change after Jarryd Hay ran into an open goal shortly before the siren.

Terang Mortlake built a 15-point lead but two Adam Wines goals late put North Warrnambool Eagles within striking range.

Keast won a 50-metre penalty in the centre and kicked a goal with under 30 seconds left to play, putting the Eagles three points up.

It was Terang Mortlake's second three-point loss in two weeks.

Warrnambool has started its premiership defence with back-to-back wins, downing Camperdown at Leura Oval 13.17 (95) to 11.10 (76).

The Blues sit atop the Hampden league ladder heading into the Easter break. 

Camperdown coach Dan Casey kicked five of the Magpies' 11 goals.

Cobden was too strong for South Warrnambool at Friendly Societies' Park.

The Bombers won, 20.18 (138) to 14.7 (91).

South Warrnambool recruit Inoke Ratu was sent off in the second quarter and was reported.
