Dunsborough Take The Points In Collie

Collie Eagles and Dunsborough played in the final game of round seven of the Dale Alcock Homes South West, premiership season, with the Sharks recording a hard fought victory over the Eagles at the Collie Recreation Ground.

The Sharks would lead all day, but for the most part it was a close contest with no more that two goals separating the two teams in the opening half.  After leading by four points at quarter time and six points at half time, the Sharks set up their victory in the third quarter, kicking four goals to one, to lead by a game high 25 points at three quarter time.

Both sides kicked two goals each in the final term with the Sharks getting their second win of the season, by 28 points.

Thomas Vellios and Jayce Fontana kicked three goals for their respective clubs, with Max Paterson and Mack Candy instrumental in the third quarter setting up the win.

Collie will have the bye in round eight, while Dunsborough will host Harvey Bulls next Sunday.
