Creighton Outstanding In Magpies Big Win

Liam Creighton was outstanding on Saturday afternoon, kicking nine goals in Busselton’s 82 point victory over Harvey Brunswick Leschenault at Sir Stewart Bovell Park, in round twenty one of the SWFL.

Busselton led by eleven points at quarter time, before kicking seven goals in the second quarter, as Creighton started to dominate, marking almost everything kicked in his direction.

After kicking seven goals in the second quarter, both teams managed just one goal apiece in the third term as Busselton led by 51 points at three quarter time.  The final term saw Busselton replicate the second quarter, kicking another seven goals, with Creighton again amongst the goals, kicking his ninth major late in the match.  Creighton has now kicked 53 goals for the season, with today’s nine goals the biggest of his career.

Mitchell Tenardi and Jaxon East also played well for Busselton, while Jack Fletcher and Connor Carbone again played well for Lions.

Busselton will now play Collie Eagles in the final round of the season, before having a week off in preparation for a Second Semi Final match against an opponent still to be decided.  The Lions will finish their season against South Bunbury.
