THERE has been a change at the top of the Bendigo Addy Footy Challenge, with Debbie Wiegard the new leader.
Wiegard has moved into the No.1 slot with her stable of 12 teams averaging 368.90 points.
Wiegard's stable of 12 is led by Power Team Sea Lake Nandaly, whose value of 644.8 points lifts to 967.2 with the 50 per cent power increase.
Wiegards's leading stable also features: Gisborne (513.6), Kangaroo Flat (171.0), Kyneton (221.4), Heathcote (153.0), Mount Pleasant (376.5), North Bendigo (481.3), Bridgewater (252.2), Marong (265.7), Mitiamo (425.1), Charlton (387.2) and St Arnaud (212.6).
Teams earn points based on their winning percentage, for/against percentage, average score for and percentage of quarters won.
Nath Holt (362.14), who had led the competition for the previous four weeks, has slipped to No.3 after his stable dropped 15.19 points, while James Blood (367.98) has moved into second spot.
Addy sports veteran Adam Bourke (361.54) and Strathfieldsaye president Glen Cowling (353.36) round out the week eight top five.
Not surprisingly given Strathfieldsaye's 230-8 win over Castlemaine, which featured a 14-goal haul from Lachlan Sharp, the top 17 entrants with the biggest points increase this week all had the Storm as their Power Team.
The Storm's thumping win over Castlemaine increased their value from 511.0 points last week to 590.5 (885.86 as a Power Team).
The winner of the Bendigo Addy Footy Challenge will receive a double pass to each of the Bendigo, Heathcote District, Loddon Valley and North Central grand finals courtesy of the leagues.
