A flurry of goals against Maryborough in the fourth quarter secured Kyneton its third win of the season.
Heading into the last quarter the Pies were within swooping distance of the Tigers as only 10 points separated them.
However, the Tigers had other plans on their home turf and booted a nifty seven goals in the fourth quarter to the Pies' three to see out the match 17.13 (115) over 12.12 (84).
Tigers coach Paul Chapman said the Tigers turned the tables on the Pies and played their style of football.
"I felt that we were dictated to in the first half but then in the second we put our best foot forward and attacked the ball," Chapman said.
"Our movement across the ground improved and we played the game on our terms."
One of the biggest improvements Chapman saw in his team was the strong scoring ability that came to life in the final quarter with seven goals and only two behinds.
"Considering during the past couple weeks we'd missed some easy shots and weren't putting scoreboard pressure on it was great to finish off the game yesterday with so many goals," he said.
The win moves the Tigers to a balanced 3-3 record ahead of their next three matches against Gisborne, Sandhurst and Strathfieldsaye in the coming rounds.
"Our guys are playing their roles well, but they need to improve their ability to play them long enough to the point they really own their position," Chapman said.
"It's a big step but they're progressing well and increasing their confidence each week."
Ben Cameron led the Tigers goal scoring with five, followed by Rhys Magin, Bailey McGee with three and Evan Davie, Ned O'Sullivan, Guy Dickson, Ryan Pretty, Louis Thompson and Thomas O'Sullivan each contributing one to the board.
Best for the Tigers were Cameron, McGee, O' Sullivan, Jordan Mangan, James Gaff and Louis Phillips.
Maryborough's scoring was led by Jayden Templeton who booted four, followed by Thomas Gardam with two and Lachlan Ratcliff, Jayden Hooper, Lachlan Butler, Jake Postle, Harrison Monk and Matthew Bilton booting one each.
Best on for the Pies, who are now 1-5, were Aidan Hare, Bailey Edwards, Butler, Hooper, Ratcliff and Hull.
