First Draw Of The Season In The Reserves

The SWFL had its first draw of the season in the Reserves competition, and was within 30 seconds of having two in two days, as round four of the SWFL competition completed on Sunday afternoon.

Collie Eagles would lead until the 20 minute of the final term, when Busselton were able to kick a behind to take the lead.  A set shot at the 22 minute mark missed equaling the scores again.  Collie had one final chance to snatch victory right at the death, but the ball eluded several forwards.

In the other Saturday fixture, Lochie Adcock, Brayden Hill and Charles Pickett kicked three goals each in Harvey Bulls 56 point win over Augusta Margaret River.

On Sunday, Eaton Boomers and Carey Park found scoring practically impossible in windy and wet conditions at Glen Huon Reserve.  Carey Park would lead throughout the match, but two behinds to the Boomers in the last 90 seconds saw the home team snatch the win, with neither team able to kick a goal in the final term.

Harvey Brunswick Leschenault were untroubled in defeating Bunbury by 71 points with Cale Westaway and Chris Strano kicking four goals apiece for the Lions, while an inaccurate South Bunbury downed Donnybrook by 45 points.

After four games, there is already a divide between the top five and the bottom five, with round five to provide some exciting encounters.  Harvey Brunswick Leschenault and Eaton Boomers will feature in the top of the table clash at Brunswick Oval, third placed South Bunbury will travel to Collie to play fifth placed Collie Eagles.   The Hawks who are currently seventh will host eighth placed Bunbury, while Carey Park will host Busselton.  Bottom placed Donnybrook will host fourth placed Harvey Bulls.
