HANWOOD claimed another top four scalp as they stretched their winning streak to eight in the Pascoe Cup on Sunday.
The Griffith powerhouse proved how far they sit on top of the competition with a 6-0 thrashing of Henwood Park, who entered the round in fourth spot.
Anthony Agresta led the charge for Hanwood with a hat-trick of goals, while Josh de Rossi, Brad Clark and Andy Gamble finished the rout.
Remarkably, Hanwood completed the demolition job with again a number of regular Pascoe Cup players missing.
Hanwood coach Jason Bertacco was rapt with the performance.
"Very happy. We had a lot of boys out again," Bertacco said.
"This long weekend's come at the right time, with a general bye. We had six players come into the squad and play in different positions and things like that, the conditions as well, the pitch was pretty slippery so to take the 6-0, it's a very positive result."
Hanwood led 2-0 at half-time and did not stop there, piling on another four goals after the break.
Bertacco praised the hunger within his team for going on with the job.
"The boys really kicked on, they really set the tone again. They set the tone that they want a clean sheet so that was the number one priority and everything else from there was a bonus," he said.
"They were hungry for goals, even with 10 seconds to go there was four boys streaming forward trying to get on the end of something, they're just hungry at the moment, it's perfect, that's what you want from your squad. If they're hungry, half the job is done."
