Dunsborough To Face Biggest Challenge

Currently the biggest challenge in football is facing Busselton, who remain undefeated, with Dunsborough the next target when the two teams meet in round fourteen of the SWFL at the Dunsborough Playing Fields on Sunday.

Earlier this season the fledgling team got within twelve points in the last quarter before ultimately losing by 27 points.   Since then Dunsborough got to the half way mark of the season with two wins and a draw, and a list of injuries, while Busselton could do no wrong, getting through the first half of the season without dropping a game.

The rivalry between Dunsborough and Busselton has been long across all sports and it didn’t take long for a rivalry to develop when the two teams met in round three, with tempers flaring several times in the third term.

Busselton easily accounted for Eaton last Sunday at Glen Huon Reserve by 58 points, while Dunsborough fell victim to Donnybrook by 66 points.

Dunsborough will need to have every player playing at their best on Sunday, with Busselton having match winners all over the ground, with Ethan Bowman, Zac Pethybridge, Mitch Tenardi and Jon Meadmore consistently playing well, while up forward, Beau Chinnery and Liam Creighton have been kicking plenty of goals.

With windy weather expected on Sunday, Dunsborough may be more suited to the open area that is their home ground, with Daniel Atkinson, Jake Green, Pat McGinnity, Nic Reid and Mack Candy all important players who will need to get plenty of possessions if the Sharks are to match the firepower of Busselton.

The match is scheduled to start at 3.00pm.
