Colts Competition Still Close At Top

The Colts competition in the South West Football League continues to be close with Bunbury, Busselton and South Bunbury separated by just 2 points at the top of the table, with Augusta Margaret River is just a game off top spot.

On Saturday, Carey Park gave Harvey Brunswick Leschenault a huge scare, with the Panthers just two points down at three quarter time.  The Lions rallied in the final quarter kicking five goals to win by 35 points.

Augusta Margaret River kicked seven goals in the first quarter, keeping Busselton scoreless, in what looked like being a very lop-sided match.  To Busselton’s credit, they kept the Hawks to just one goal in the second half, but they gave up too big a start, with the Hawks winning by 20 points.

On Sunday, Collie over-came a slow start to easily account for Harvey Bulls, while Eaton Boomers defeated Donnybrook by 75 points.

The match of the round on Monday, didn’t end up that way, with Bunbury’s inaccuracy keeping South Bunbury in the match.  Bunbury were 1.9.15 at one point before finding some accuracy, defeating the Tigers by 47 points.

This weekend, Busselton will look to cement themselves at the top of the table when they take on eighth placed Donnybrook.   Harvey Brunswick Leschenault and Collie Eagles will do battle in a crucial Saturday clash, with both teams coming off good wins.

On Sunday, Eaton Boomers will host South Bunbury in a match that may be much closer than ladder positions suggest, top placed Bunbury, will play bottom placed Harvey Bulls, while ninth placed Carey Park will host Augusta Margaret River.
