    Coming off a thrilling draw with Myrtleford last round, the Magpies adapted to the wet conditions better and got off to a flying start at the Norm Minns Oval.

    A four-goal lead at quarter time was extended to six at the half time break before Wangaratta broke the match open with a dominant third quarter.
