Here Come The Bulldogs!

Bunbury have defeated Harvey Bulls at Harvey Oval on Saturday afternoon, and in doing so have moved into third place on the SWFL Premiership ladder, midway through round eleven of the Dale Alcock Homes Premiership season.

With two wins and a draw after round six, Bunbury were sitting outside the five, but have since won three of their next four games, to move into third place, although, South Bunbury have the opportunity to take that position back, when they play HBL on Sunday.

With so much at stake for both teams today, the match delivered a high quality match, with Bunbury getting the best of the opening term to lead by 13 points.

The Bulls fought back in the second quarter, narrowing the margin to six points, as both Brad Holmes and Matt Martin (pictured), starred at either end, with the duo kicking nine goals for the match.

The match was won in the third quarter, with Bunbury keeping Harvey scoreless in the third term, as the margin extended to twenty six points, with the Bulldogs ultimately winning by 30 points.

Bunbury Captain, Denholm King again played well, as did Dylan Heasman who is just in his second game back after injury, along with Jesse Gribble.  Kyle Humphries played well for the Bulls along with Dylan Marino and Brad Holmes.

Bunbury will start the second round with a home game against Carey Park, while Harvey will face Harvey Brunswick Leschenault in what will be a crucial match in the context of the season.
