Some of the action from the Bullsbrook Saints and Forrestfield Rhinos clash in last Sunday’s Hills Football Association fixture.

Wundowie scored a couple of goals in each quarter but that wasn’t enough to keep pace with Mundaring, who had got out to a comfortable 42-point lead by half-time, extended that to 58 by the final change and coasted home to win by 61 points ” 17.21 (123) to Wundowie’s 10.2 (62).

The Roos squandered several opportunities in front of goal and they are going to have to improve their accuracy to trouble teams above them on the league ladder.

Tyson Hamling Jake Davis and Dave Smith continued their good form for the Roos. Ben Litterick, Liam Stewart and Michael Adcock played serviceable games for the Warriors.

The Mt Helena Lions went into their game against the Chidlow Cougars very much undermanned and were no match for the rampant, unbeaten ladder leaders.

Adam McKinlay was again the Cougars’ leading goal scorer while Matt Mallaby’s good form continued.

Aaron Rivers dominated the ruck duels for the Lions but with only a couple of ball winners at his feet a lot of his good work is picked off by the opposition.

Simon Johnston had a return to form and newcomer Rob Kirchner had a serviceable game. Chidlow won by a massive 230 points ” 38.15 (243) to Mt Helena’s 2.1 (13).

The Lions will be looking forward to the return of some of their key players for next round and should offer more resistance against an improving Bullsbrook.

The Forrestfield Rhinos took their first trip to Bullsbrook Saints for what was billed the game of the round.

The Rhinos have shown continued improvement over the course of the season although the scores often have not reflected that.

The game was an even tussle for the first three quarters with both teams going goal for goal.

The Saints turned into the last quarter with a slender lead but Bullsbrook was more focused on its flow-on style of football, moving the ball more quickly through the lines, on the way to a 38-point win.

Final scores were Bullsbrook 14.14, (98) to Forrestfield 9.6 (60).

Cody Steele was the Saints stand out forward with seven goals , while Rory O’Neil was good on a wing .

This week is a general bye for the HFA, a well earned rest for the players carrying niggling injuries.

Next week’s round eight competition will feature a clash between the unbeaten Cougars and Doggies. This will be a huge game for both clubs to test themselves against the best in the competition.
