HFNL Wrap-up, gallery | Koroit, Warrnambool have big wins, Port Fairy and South cause upsets.

KOROIT is outright second after a big win over Cobden but a series of upsets has transformed the Hampden football league ladder.

The Saints, coming off an 80-point loss to top-side Warrnambool, turned the second versus fourth clash against Cobden into a rout with a 62-point win at Victoria Park.

Jeremy Hausler kicked seven goals for Koroit in a best on ground effort.

While Koroit's form reversal was impressive, Port Fairy and South Warrnambool provided the talking points with wins against more highly fancied rivals.

Port Fairy stunned third-placed North Warrnambool Eagles with a five-point win at Gardens Oval after Geelong VFL vice-captain Jack Hollmer put them in front with a goal 30 seconds before the final siren.

The Seagulls led all day only to see their advantaged wiped about two minutes from the end of the game when Mark Murphy kicked his fourth goal for the Eagles.

But in a franatic climax, Hollmer was awarded a free-kick for a throw 30 metres out from goal, directly in front.

South Warrnambool claimed a nine-point triumph over Terang Mortlake at Terang Recreation Reserve.

The Roosters were lucky to be in the contest at quarter-time after Terang Mortlake kicked 2.7 to 1.1. But the Roosters kicked six goals to three in the second term to hit the front, remaining there for the rest of the game.

Warrnambool spearhead Jason Rowan showed his trip to Fiji over last week's bye failed to interrupt his impressive start to the season. After kicking 12.9 against Koroit two weeks ago, he kicked nine goals as the Blues thumped Portland by 64 points at Hanlon Park.

Camperdown scored its second consecutive win with a six-goal victory against Hamilton Kangaroos at Melville Oval.

The results have produced an astonishing ladder. Warrnambool is two games clear of Koroit at the top of the ladder, with the Saints a game clear of North Warrnambool Eagles. Five sides, Terang Mortlake, Cobden, Portland, Port Fairy and South Warrnambool are all tied on three wins and four losses, meaning percentage separates fourth to eighth.
