|Wantirna South||3||Lilydale||27||1||WS 1^|
Wantirna South and Lilydale have one of the most lop-sided Win Loss records in the EFNL. The Devils have never won more than one game in a row against the Falcons. For the first time since 2015 every senior club has recorded a win; great to see the three previously winless teams get on the board last weekend.

Whilst Ferntree Gully have won their last six matches against Whitehorse, the Pioneers have a BWS^ of 12 against the Eagles.
|Division 4 Round 13||Wins||Wins||Draws||Streak|
|Croy North MLOC||0||Forest Hill||3||0||FH 3^|

Coldstream’s run of 13 in a row against Nunawading is good; best I can find is 26 in a row by Vermont against Blackburn from 1979 – 2009.
All figures are for men’s EFL matches 1962 – 2021 rd 12/13 .

Mooroolbark will join the 1000 EFNL games club this week. The Barkers joined the EFL in 1966 and spent their first 15 years in (then) Division 3 before a runners-up resulted in a promotion.
A relegation during the re-structure to four Divisions proved the catalyst for the club’s first senior Premiership in 1988. A further promotion to (then) Division 1 followed a couple of years later. A creditable four wins in the top echelon was not enough to stay up and then a further relegation resulted in a few lean seasons in Division 3.
In 2009 Mooroolbark dominated Division 3 and rightfully won promotion, and the last decade has seen the Mustangs consolidate in the second tier.
Mooroolbark have played the most games against Montrose and Upper Ferntree Gully, both 51 times.
Their best record is against Kilsyth with a perfect 10 wins from 10 matches against the Cougars. Mooroolbark have 490 wins and nine draws from 999 matches to date.
