The Cannons kicked nine second-quarter goals to turn a 38-point quarter-time deficit into an 11-point half-time lead.

But last crack with the wind counted for little as Calder failed to overturn a three-point deficit at the final change, losing 12.4 (76) to Oakleigh’s 13.14 (92).

The Cannons’ six-win, six-loss record is good enough for sixth, ahead of Dandenong Stingrays and Geelong Falcons on percentage and a game ahead of ninth-placed Western Jets (5-7).
