WILLIAMSTOWN showed plenty of character to shred Port Melbourne's record of 21 undefeated matches on its home turf with a 42-point win at TEAC Oval yesterday.

And while Collingwood was triumphant over Geelong by 38 points, North Ballarat came from behind against Sandringham to win by 26 points and remain in pole position heading into next week's finals.

WILLIAMSTOWN’S unbeaten VFL run is over. The Seagulls lost by two points, 15.8 (98) to 14.16 (100) to North Ballarat in the highly anticipated round eight clash between the two VFL powerhouses at Burbank Oval on Sunday.

The Roosters, sitting second on the ladder, went into the final term with a five-point lead against the top-of-the-table Seagulls, on the back of six goals from Corey Jones and a competitive three quarters.

THERE were positive signs for Robert Murphy lining up for Williamstown against Collingwood's VFL side yesterday at VISY Park.

Williamstown coach Brad Gotch used Murphy, who has recovered from knee surgery, across half-back in 15-20 minute spells in each quarter.

Murphy, 26, had 10 kicks and two handballs to play a role in the Seagulls' 56-point victory.

"I thought Murphy got better in the second half," Gotch said.
