MELBOURN Panthers secured the Division Three title in front of their biggest crowd of the season with a good team performance that saw seven of their players getting on the score sheet.

After forcing a series of corners, Ryan Lees was credited with the opener on three minutes after a Josh Hutton corner caused confusion at the back for the Kites defense.

He made amends after 13 minutes, though, as his curling right-footed corner somehow evaded everyone to double Melbourn's advantage.

A minute later he grabbed his second to make it 3-0 after a typical run and powerful finish gave the Kites 'keeper no chance.
