Tigers Set The Early Pace

South Bunbury are the benchmark team after the opening two rounds of the Dale Alcock Homes South West, SWFL Season, with a strong win against Busselton at Sir Stewart Bovell Park on Saturday evening.

The Tigers kept the home team goal-less in the opening quarter, before Busselton started to play some strong football and got themselves back in the contest, trailing by seventeen points at the main break.

A dour third quarter saw the margin increase to 23 points at three quarter time, with the home team needing early goals to have any chance of victory, but a four goal to one final quarter erased that hope, with South Bunbury winning by 43 points.

The Tigers had winners all over the ground, with Jay Wright and Milan Kokir amongst the best, with Chris Atthowe prolific with disposals, Nathan Arbon was again amongst the better players for the Magpies.

Jordan Strahan continued his early form kicking four majors, while Jed Kemp kicked three goals for Busselton, and was a strong target up forward.

South Bunbury will travel to take on Collie Eagles on Sunday, while Busselton will face Bunbury, fresh from the League Bye last round.
