Tigers Too Good For Magpies

South Bunbury have easily accounted for Busselton in today’s league fixture at Hands Oval, which commenced round thirteen of the Dale Alcock Homes South West, SWFL season.

Before a very disappointing crowd, the match also didn’t live up to expectation, with neither team able to score a goal in the first quarter in perfect conditions.

In fact the first goal of the match didn’t come until the ten minute mark of the second quarter when Kade Wallrodt kicked truly, which led to three quick goals, two to Jordan Strahan and one to Jak Watson off the ground, giving the home team a four goal lead.

Busselton would kick their first goal of the match at the seven minute mark of the third quarter courtesy of Mitch Howlett, followed a minute later with a goal from Dylan Patterson, bringing the Magpies back within thirteen points.

It would be all one way traffic after that point, with the Tigers eventually winning by 46 points.

Jordan Strahan continued his good form kicking four goals, while Cole Sawyer and Jay Crossman obtained plenty of the ball.  Jackson Arbon and Mitch Tenardi tried hard for Busselton but collectively South Bunbury were too good.

South Bunbury will host Collie Eagles on Sunday, 3 July 2022, while Busselton will face Bunbury also on Sunday in Busselton.
