A Day To Forget For Boomers As Kohlmann Kicks Nine

South Bunbury had defeated Eaton by a massive 121 points at Hands Oval on Saturday afternoon, in round fourteen of the SWFL, with Leigh Kohlmann kicking nine goals .

The day was a nightmare from start to finish for the undermanned Boomers, who trailed by 37 points at quarter time, and after which time they never scored again until the twelve minute mark of the final term, with their only goal coming at the seventeen minute mark when Greg Humphries converted a set shot, which saw wild scenes on a dark day for the Boomers.

Not for the first time in recent weeks, Leigh Kohlmann absolutely dominated, kicking nine goals, six in the first half and three in the second half, with the forward now having kicked thirty goals in the last three weeks, and has 70 goals for the season.

The Boomers were no match for South Bunbury who dominated every position on the ground.  Jeremy Goddard played well as did Shaun Crane, Ben Horsman and Ethan Nordahl, all of whom got plenty of possessions.

South Bunbury set up perfectly behind the ball, stopping any forward play for the Boomers who entered inside fifty just five times across the second and third quarters, with the ball almost exclusively in the Tigers forward half of the ground.  Kohlmann’s seventh goal was a standout, when he marked amongst three Eaton defenders, who had no answer for the Tigers forward.

After the bye, Eaton will travel to Harvey to face the Harvey Bulls, while South Bunbury will also be on the road, when they head to Dunsborough.
