Busselton Thrash Collie In One Sided Contest

Earlier this season Busselton won a thriller against Collie Eagles by one point, but on Saturday evening the margin was 118 points in a contest that was lop-sided from the opening exchange at Sir Stewart Bovell Park.

Busselton ended the contest in the opening quarter, with the home team kicking nine goals, which is the largest opening term by any team for the season.

There was no respite for Collie in the second quarter with the margin 68 points at the long break, extending to 85 points at three quarter time, with the Eagles still only having one goal on the board, which they kicked at the fifteen minute mark of the opening term.   The Eagles were stuck on the clubs lowest ever score, which they did surpass in the final term, kicking two goals, but Busselton kicked a further six to set up the massive win.

“That first quarter was the best any team has played against us all season”, said Collie Eagles Coach Kade East.

Liam Creighton and Jed Kemp played great games and both kicked four goals, while Mitch Tenardi and Damian Lee were again amongst the best players for Busselton.  Jayce Fontana was Collies best player and kicked two goals, but the Eagles were no contest for Busselton who will finish the Home and Away season against Eaton Boomers and Harvey Bulls.    Collie will play Harvey Brunswick Leschenault next Sunday in the clubs final game of the season.
