Danger Game At Glen Huon For Panthers

After playing good football in recent weeks, including a victory over Harvey Brunswick Leschenault, the Eaton Boomers were convincingly beaten by then bottom team Collie Eagles last Sunday, and they will be looking to bounce back when they host Carey Park on Saturday afternoon at Glen Huon Reserve.

Coach Chris Kinninmont will be looking for a four quarter effort by his team if they are to beat the surprise packets of 2023, Carey Park, who currently sit fourth with five wins and three losses.

The loss last Sunday to Collie has put the Boomers back at the foot of the table, with Eaton’s effort particularly in the second quarter putting them four goals down in a match they would have expected to win.

The Panthers will be without a couple of key players due to injury, but coach Frank Italiano is quietly confident that Carey Park can continue on their winning ways.

Paul Rinder and Greg Humphries will be key players for Eaton if they are to get over Carey Park who have Harley Sparks playing great games, week in week out, while Bryce Fiorentino is also starting to play good games consistently and was the best on ground for the Panthers in their narrow loss to Busselton last Saturday.

If Carey Park were to win, they would stay in touch with Donnybrook and South Bunbury who play each other in the other Saturday fixture, while a loss could potentially see the Panthers drop to fifth if Augusta Margaret River beat Bunbury on Sunday.  An Eaton victory could see them jump to ninth on the ladder, leap frogging Collie and Dunsborough subject to their results.

Colts 9.25am, Reserves 11.20am, Women’s 1.10pm, League 2.40pm
