Bulldogs Win As Gribble Breaks Record

There was a game to be won, but the day would belong to Jesse Gribble, who broke the all time games record for the Bunbury Football Club on Saturday afternoon at his beloved PC Payne Park.

The round twelve match was won by the Bulldogs to the tune of 92 points, with a dominant second quarter seeing the home side kick nine goals.

Not content with soaking up the adulation pre-match, Gribble was in vintage form kicking three goals, on his way to a best on ground performance, earning him the Indigenous Game Ball, as part of Indigenous Round.

Joel Houghton kicked six goals to extend his lead in the SWFL goal kicking stakes, while Trae Field and Denholm King also played well for the Bulldogs, who cement themselves in second place on the ladder.
