WAAFL round 2 kicked off with the Kalamunda Districts Cougars Football Club E1s hosting West Coast Cowan Football Club at Ray Owen Reserve.

The boys tried all day but were out matched by an impressive West Coast, going down 4.7 (31) to 11.10 (76).

Tom Hodgkins was named best on ground.

A grade travelled to Fremantle CBC Amateur Football Club, an oval that hasn’t been kind to the Cougars and the trend continued Saturday with all three teams failing to register a win.

Colts at stages looked the better team but CBC held strong when the game was in the balance and eventually won 8.5 (53) to 4.7 (31).

First year colt Ryan Steers took out the best on ground award.

Both reserves and league trailed throughout against very strong CBC outfits.

CBC flew out of the blocks in both games using a strong breeze to its benefit in the first quarter and never looked like relinquishing the lead.

Final scores were 0.4 (4) to 17.17 (119) in the reserves and 3.6 (24) to 12.17 (89) in the league.

Ben Bowness for the reserves and Brett Robinson for the league picked up the best players for the games.

All four teams will be looking to bounce back in round three with A grade hosting Curtin Uni Wesley Football Club and E1s travelling to Swan Athletic Football Club.
