THE Kalamunda A grade football teams travelled to Whitfords on Saturday and came away with two wins.

The colts had a thrilling come-from-behind win, with Ryan Newbold kicking a late goal for the Cougars to have a six-point win.

Cody Christensen and Kane Swithenbank were among the best for Kalamunda.

The reserves were blown out in the first quarter, and that ended up being the difference in the day, going down by 34 points. Dylan Jeffrey was good again with Jim Outten the best on ground.

The league team started well and led by six goals to one at quarter time, with Jordan Lee kicking three of his six goals early.

Whitfords then fought back to be down by only two goals at halftime, before a sensational third term and three great goals from best player Brett Robinson busted the game open, with Kalamunda running away 69 point winners. Trent Pottinger dominated in the middle with Ben Smith also playing a great game kicking five goals.

At Ray Owen Reserve, the E1 team got the better of Hamersley Carine, winning 10.8 (68) to 4.11 (35), with Jeremy Pitt good and Daniel Henderson best on ground.
