EMERGING Geelong spearhead Mitch Brown led Geelong to a commanding 86-point win over Bendigo Gold at Queen Elizabeth Oval last night.
The tall forward kicked a bag of nine goals in a performance sure to gain the attention of senior coach Chris Scott.
Brown was backed up by fellow talls Josh Walker (four goals) and Shane Kersten (three goals) in the Cats' 23.9 (147) to 8.13 (61) win.
After struggling for years to have key position depth in the forward line, Geelong now has a plethora of options if injury strikes Tom Hawkins or James Podsiadly.
Both Hawkins (12 goals) and Podsiadly (13 goals) who is on top of the Coleman Medal table have been stars in the senior team.
Brown's bag saw him rocket to the top of the VFL goalkicking table with 19 from just four games.
Geelong's win was soured by an injury to young midfielder Jordan Schroder, who came off during the third term.
Speedster David Wojcinski got through the match unscathed, while Orren Stephenson was influential in the ruck.
Tom Gillies, who lost his spot in the Cats' senior team to veteran Matthew Scarlett, was also impressive.
Shannon Byrnes and Troy Selwood were also busy in the midfield.
