The strong performance came in front of the club’s1956 and 1986 premiership players.

The Rats were in control for the whole match as the side booted23 goals13to the Roos’11.3.

Lachlan Hamilton kicked seven goals for the Rats to finish with a season tally of 42 from 15 games.

Coach David Hosking said Hamilton did not start with the intensity required for the game.

“Lachie started slow, so i just pulled him aside and said to focus on attacking the ball,” he said

“I was just trying to get his confidence up for the rest of the game.

“Certainly there were a lot of people around which always makes for a good atmosphere.”

Gordon Laurie and Jack Ganley each added four goals of their own.

Ararat’s fourth win of the season lifted it into sixth position –just two points outside the top five.

Hosking said thatthe final scorelinedid not accurately reflect how competitive the game actually was.

“It was a good win,” he said.

“I thought it was probably a bit closer than the scoresindicated.”

He said it was the evenly spread contributionacross from his players that pleased him the most.

“I think we were pretty even on the day,” he said.

“Wehad a few guys back in the team to make us stronger which always helps.”

Ryan Bates continued his recent good form to finish the season with another strong performance.

He was named best on ground for the second week straight after a good performance against Minyip-Murtoa in round 15.

The Rats had become an unlikely late season finals hope heading into thefinal round.

But their poor percentage was always going to make it difficult for the side to move into the top five.

It proved too much to overcome in the end.

It was a disappointing way to end the season for Dimboola.

Jayden Lehmann kicked three goals and was named the Roos’ best player.

The side had been showing improved form over the past month of the season.

But they could not manage a second win to go with its 12-point win against Nhill in round 12.
