Bunbury Looking To Close In On Fourth

The annual White Ribbon Match will be played at PC Payne Park this Sunday with Bunbury to host Dunsborough as part of round eighteen of the SWFL.

In the early part of the season, Bunbury were outside the top five, and once inside it, have been fifth ever since, but a win against Dunsborough on Sunday, will see them within two points of fourth placed South Bunbury, who have the bye.

In the corresponding fixture earlier this season, Bunbury and Dunsborough fought out a thrilling draw 10.9 (69) apiece with both teams having an opportunity in the dying stages to snatch victory.

Since then Bunbury have found plenty of form and have won six of their last eight matches, with their losses being against Carey Park and more recently against Busselton to the tune of 15 points.

Dunsborough have suffered a multitude of injuries in their debut season, and if it isn’t injuries the Busselton / Dunsborough area has also been hit by plenty of illness, which has stopped the Sharks from putting their best time on the ground for the best part of two months.

Bunbury will looking to continue their good form with some key matches coming up in the lead up to finals, while Dunsborough who are ninth, are still a chance of receiving the wooden spoon, something they will be looking to avoid.

The White Ribbon match raises awareness of domestic violence against women and children by men, with the best player in each match at Payne Park to be given the game ball.
