Tigers Get The Job Done

It wasn’t pretty on a bitterly cold Sunday afternoon at the Brunswick Showgrounds, but South Bunbury did what they needed to do, and that was to get the four points against Harvey Brunswick Leschenault in round eleven of the SWFL season.

The closeness of the match was masked a little by South Bunbury’s inaccuracy in the windy conditions, with the Tigers kicking one goal six behinds in the opening quarter, and had only two goals from eleven scoring shots at half time, leading the Lions by six points at the main break.

The Tigers dominated possession in the third quarter with Jace Cormack in his 250th game, along with Shaun Crane and Jesse Creighton getting plenty of possessions, as the visitors opened up a 27 point advantage at three quarter time, ultimately winning by 29 points.

Ethan Nordahl played well for the Tigers along with Tom Gorter, as South Bunbury recorded their seventh win of the season, to sit third on the premiership ladder at the half way mark.   The Lions have reached the half way mark with three wins and a few games where they lost by small margins, with Harvey Bulls their next opponent on Saturday.
