Tigers Fly High Over Bulls

South Bunbury have defeated Harvey Bulls on Sunday afternoon at Harvey Oval, and in doing so have kept the pressure on Carey Park and Donnybrook in the race for second and spot, and a double chance come finals time.

Adam Hunter started the scoring for South Bunbury in an entertaining opening term which saw the visitors lead by twelve points.

The Bulls fought back in the second term as Sam Lewis, Andrew Haydon and Lloyd Beever started to win possessions through the centre of the ground.

With the margin a narrow six points going into the third, South Bunbury found a way to get back the momentum, kicking four goals to two for the term, turning for home nineteen points in front.  The Tigers spearhead, Leigh Kohlman, took plenty of strong marks yet again, and finished the match with seven goals, and is now just fourteen goals shy of the magical 100 goals in a season.

Jace Cormack was instrumental in the third term, arresting the momentum off of Harvey, while Shaun Crane and Kevin Chitty also played well for the Tigers as they ran out winners by 37 points.

South Bunbury will now face Donnybrook on Sunday in a massive match at Hands Oval, in a match which will decide placings within the five, home finals and whether a team potentially finishes in the Qualifying or Elimination Final.
