IT was a day of everything for Kalamunda Cougars on Saturday, with some huge wins and narrow losses.

The league team hung around all day and were unlucky to lose to Kelmscott, going down by just 4 points, 12.8 (80) to 11.10 (76).

James Morris led the way for the Cougars with Matthew Outridge again unstoppable in the midfield.

The job of assistant coach Alex Minson should be safe for one more week after the reserves recorded a win against an undermanned Kelmscott, just sneaking over the line 35.23 (233) to 0.0 (0).

The colts again showed improvement, but went down 11.12 (78) to 6.10 (46).

Ash Bartlett was best afield for a young Kalamunda team that will look to record their first win against Hamersley Carine next week.

The D2 league and reserves teams recorded strong wins against Kingsley, by 46 and 139 points respectively.

The league team were inaccurate kicking 9.19, but with Ben Armstrong hunting contested ball and Matt Benson kicking five up forward, they were always in control.

Ben Simpson kicked the first five for the reserves and ignited them early in their big win.

Both D2 league and reserves will be at Ray Owen this Saturday, with both games being top-of-the-table clashes against Wembley.
