High Stakes At Hands Oval

The stakes will be high at Hands Oval on Sunday, when South Bunbury and Donnybrook play in round twenty of the SWFL premiership season.

Donnybrook sit third on the ladder, one game behind Carey Park and one game ahead of fourth placed South Bunbury going into the round, with both teams still a chance of playing in a Qualifying Final, and Donnybrook can still potentially host it, but that depends on the result on Sunday.

Both teams had convincing wins in round nineteen, with Donnybrook defeating Bunbury, with the victory set up in the second quarter, while South Bunbury, who were challenged in the first half by the Harvey Bulls, were too strong in the second half to record a 37 point win, ending a two game losing streak.

The Dons, should they win against the Tigers, have an easier run to the finals with games against Collie Eagles and Augusta Margaret River to come, while South Bunbury will face Bunbury in the penultimate round, followed by Harvey Brunswick Leschenault in the final round.  If South Bunbury were to win on Sunday, both the Dons and Tigers would be equal on points and with both teams percentages very similar, both could still make a qualifying final, but would face Carey Park at Kelly Park, should they win both of their matches.

Both teams are in good form, with match winners all across the ground, making this a much anticipated match, with ramifications all the way to the end of the season, based on who wins and who loses.

Colts 9.45am, Reserves 11.40am, Women’s 1.30pm, League 3.00pm
