Tigers Don’t Get It All Their Own Way

South Bunbury may have won the match, but they certainly didn’t have it all their own way, when they played Dunsborough at the Dunsborough Playing Fields on Sunday afternoon.

The result has seen South Bunbury move to second place on the ladder, after Donnybrook lost to Busselton.

The Tigers started red hot favourites against Dunsborough, and would have looked to boost their percentage against the Sharks, but the Sharks took the match right up to the Tigers, who had to fight for every possession, particularly in the first half.

South Bunbury started the script in way everyone thought, leading at quarter time by seventeen points, and dominating most of the play.

However, in the second quarter the Sharks fought back, outscoring the Tigers and narrowing the margin to nine points, as close as any team has come to the Tigers in the last month.

It would be the third quarter that would be the undoing of the Sharks, who failed to score, while the Tigers kicked three goals, extending the lead to thirty points.

The Sharks came again in the final term, getting within 19 points before a late goal to the Tigers saw the final margin, 25 points.

All eyes were also on Leigh Kohlmann who had kicked 30 goals in his last three matches, but he was kept to four goals, while Jace Cormack continued his great form kicking three goals.  Shaun Crane had plenty of possessions yet again for the Tigers, while Nic Reid kicked three goals for the Sharks, with Kane Dawson and Jake Green playing good games.

South Bunbury will play Carey Park at Kelly Park next Sunday, while Dunsborough will travel to Collie to play the Eagles on Saturday.
