Major Upset In Women’s Competition

Collie Eagles have caused a massive upset in the Women’s competition by defeating South Bunbury on Sunday.

The Eagles in just their third game, won a stirring contest, with the Eagles getting the jump in the first quarter kicking two goals.  The Tigers fought back in the second to lead at half time by four points, keeping the Eagles scoreless.  In the third quarter, Collie took back the lead kicking their third goal to lead by three points at the final change.  Both teams traded goals in the final term with the fledgling team getting home by eight points.

On Saturday, Carey Park hosted Busselton in what turned out to be a thriller.  After kicking two goals in the opening term, Busselton never kicked another goal until the final quarter in what turned out to be the winning goal.  Neither team scored in the second quarter with the Magpies leading by seven points.  The margin was narrowed to two points at the final change as the Panthers scored their second goal.  In a tight final term, with both teams scoring a goal, it would be Busselton who would prevail by one point.

In the final match of the round, Eaton Boomers kicked their biggest ever score accounting for Harvey Brunswick Leschenault.  The Lions who have struggled this season, kicked their first goal of the season, and went on to kick their second soon after, but alas they went down by 51 points to the Boomers.

This weekend, Carey Park play host to Collie Eagles, which should be a close contest.   Undefeated Harvey Bulls will host South Bunbury, with the Bulls looking to extend their winning run.   Busselton will host Harvey Brunswick Leschenault on Sunday, with Busselton looking to consolidate their position in the four, in the only Sunday Women’s fixture.
