THE Kalamunda Cougars league team were back at Ray Owen on the weekend and the home support made all the difference to beat second placed Fremantle CBC 8.12 (60) to 8.8 (56).

Brett Van Groningen was spectacular off half back resulting in the best on ground award while Justin Simpson dominated through the middle.

The win moves the A grade team back into the top five.

The Reserves started well and were very much in the game at half time but missed opportunities hurt in the second half as Fremantle pulled away eventually winning 10.6 (66) to 2.4 (16).

Thomas McKay brilliant through the middle with veteran Daniel Edwards toughing it out all day.

The Colts went down in a nail biter 6.6 (42) to 5.6 (36) but showed they have improved immensely since last time they played Fremantle.

First year colt Daniel Sala-Tenna adjudged best on ground with Adam Brescacin a close second.

E1’s travelled out to the unbeaten East Fremantle and were gallant but eventually went down 9.10 (64) to 8.4 (52).
