Dons Down The Sharks At Boyanup

Donnybrook have easily accounted for Dunsborough on Saturday afternoon at the Boyanup Oval, winning the match by 74 points, in round four of the SWFL.

Donnybrook put the match out of reach for the Sharks early in the contest, with the visitors narrowly avoiding their lowest ever score by two behinds.

The Dons were able to take too many uncontested marks inside 50, with six set shots in the first half assisting with the lopsided scoreline.

Jacob Kendle kicked truly from a set shot in the pocket to open the scoring, which was followed by Brandon Jetta also converting from a set shot.  Matt Martin joined in taking a one hander to extend the margin to 20 points, and the alarm bells were sounding for the visitors.  Cooper Clarke-Dehring kicked the first of his six goals, after a horrendous turn over in defence, which would see Dunsborough scoreless at quarter time.

Jack Goyder kicked the Sharks first goal early in the second before the Dons kicked the next five, with Clarke-Dehring kicking three for the term, which would see Donnybrook lead by 52 points at the main break.

The second half was non-descript in many respects, with the Dons having a large lead, and Dunsborough unable to penetrate the defence of Donnybrook.  It was so dire for the visitors, it would be the 20 minute mark of the third term when the Sharks had their second mark inside 50 and second shot on goal.   That shot from Jake Green would miss, but he would go on to kick the Sharks second and final goal in the last term.

Cooper Clarke-Dehring had a superb day kicking six goals, while Ben Howlett and Archer Coates had plenty of possessions.  Josh Maisey and Jack Byrne tried hard for the Sharks, but they were totally out-played, particularly in the first half.
