Altona Magic moved eight points clear at the top of the ladder with a 6-0 annihilation of North Sunshine Eagles at Larissa Reserve on Saturday.

The Magic goals were spread around, with Jon McShane, Melvin Becket, Adamson Ajayi, Kliment Dimitrieski, Jason Hayne and Nikola Markovski getting on the scoreboard.
