Carey Park Panthers

fought back in the second quarter, reducing the deficit to a point at half time.  A pulsating third quarter, saw two of the best goals of the season, and with the crowd right into the match, a fantastic finish was in store, with scores locked together at the final change.  Scores were level twice more in the final stanza, which also included three lead changes, with the Park getting home by three points.

Jai Cahill kicked three goals for the victors, with Max Sarre, Lachlan Emmott and Bryce Fiorentino getting plenty of the football, while Fraser Gilchrist played a great game for Bunbury, kicking four goals.

Carey Park will now face Busselton in the Second Semi Final, having beaten the Magpies a month ago at Busselton.  Bunbury will face Augusta Margaret River in the First Semi Final, with both venues yet to be decided.
