Oakleigh Amateurs U19s blew away St Bedes Mentone in Saturday's VAFA U19 South second semi-final at Warrawee Park in Oakleigh.
A six-goal opening term put the Krushers on track as they kept the Tigers to five behinds and took a 31-point lead into the first change.
The second quarter, however, proved a challenge for the Oaks who struggled with the breeze and remained goal-less for the term as St.Bedes closed the gap to 23 points at the long break.
After a bit of a bake from the coach at half-time, the Oaks came out with a different attitude. They traded goals with the Tigers early, but Oakleigh slammed on six unanswered majors and went to the last change with a 10-goal advantage.
A further five goals to the Tigers' one in the last completed the rout and at the final siren the Krushers were 85 points up and in the grand final.
Aaron Cloke was again the major goal-kicker with seven, with Ben Still adding four. Michael Tate, Austin Deneys and Luke Pappon were just a few of Oakleigh’s best players.
Final scores: Oakleigh 19-9-123 def St.Bedes Mentone 5-8-38.
