THE Kalamunda league team recorded another win on Saturday, beating last season’s A-grade premier Trinity Aquinas in a close game at home.

Getting off to a fast start, the Cougars kicked the first six goals, before Trinity worked its way back into the game late.

The Cougars steadied however to win by two goals 15.5 (95) to 13.5 (83), and move a game clear in fourth spot on the ladder.

Justin Simpson and Daniel Brescacin controlled the half back line for Kalamunda, while the move of Curtis Jack forward was influential with him kicking two goals to be best on ground.

The reserves were four goals down at three quarter time, but with just one player on the bench made a run late and only lost by nine points.

Dylan Barratt was impressive again.

The colts fought hard against a stronger opponent but lost 16.9 (105) to 3.2 (20), with full back Nathan Lovell best for Kalamunda.

Daniel Henderson again did as he pleased for the E1 team, as they recorded another impressive win 13.14 (92) to 5.11 (41), to move into third spot on the ladder.
