THIRD-YEAR Kolora-Noorat mentor Danny Finn is adamant his side won’t be swept up in the hysteria surrounding its first-place berth.

The Power used 57 shots on goal to steamroll a hapless Russells Creek on Saturday, posting 34.23 (227) to 5.3 (33).

But Finn said his team wasn’t “getting carried away” and said it remained focused on executing its game-plan against Nirranda next week.

“I think we had 10 goals in the first quarter against Creek and we were pretty efficient going forward,” he said.

“Our half-backs and mids are really setting up that (forward line success) at the moment.

“We’ve had a really good start to the season but we aren’t getting carried away at all.”

The Power were again boosted by the form of key forward Ben Fraser, who slotted 10 goals, while boom recruit Sam Harkin added eight from the midfield.

Lively midfielder-forward Scott Judd chipped in with another five to take his season tally to 12 majors from three games.

Finn was also pleased with the efforts of four youngsters granted opportunities in the absence of Mark Clissold, Joey Conheady, Paul McSween and Ben Kenna.

“They didn’t look out of place and they’ve certainly put their hand up for selection next week,” he said.

“They’re pretty hungry to play senior footy and it’s a good position for the footy club to be in with that depth.

“I’m not sure if they’ll play this season all at once but they’re all capable and keen.”
