Busselton Blitz Too Much For Bulls

Busselton may still be fourth on the ladder on Saturday night, after their round sixteen encounter with Harvey Bulls in the Dale Alcock Homes South West, SWFL competition, but they have potentially played their best brand of Football, thumping the Bulls by 119 points.

Busselton previous held the highest score of the season when they kicked 18.17.125 in Round 13, with tonight’s score

Busselton Magpies

obliterating that effort, as the Magpies kicked twelve goals in each half of the match, before a very disappointing crowd.

The Bulls took the match up to the visitors in the first quarter and a half, with Busselton leading 6.5.41 to 6.0.36 at the 15 minute mark of the second quarter.  Busselton would then kick a further 17.7.109 before Harvey kicked a behind at the 17 minute mark of the final quarter.

The ball skill and control from Busselton was first class, with the delivery into the forward line a highlight of the match, with Jaxon East, Liam Creighton and Aidan Fraser all kicking five goals, with Creighton’s marking a standout.

Such is the closeness of the competition, Busselton may find themselves fifth at the end of the round if South Bunbury down Harvey Brunswick Leschenault, with matches against Carey Park and Collie Eagles to come.  The Bulls will finish the season with two road trips to Margaret River in Round 17 before finishing the season playing Eaton Boomers at Glen Huon Reserve.
