THERE was no good news from the three A-grade games held at Ray Owen Reserve on Saturday, with all three Kalamunda teams suffering losses.

The league team started well, leading by four goals to one early, but a quality University outfit stuck to its task to hold a narrow lead at three quarter time.

Kalamunda did the majority of the attacking all day, but University opened the game up with crisp ball movement through the middle on several occasions, to eventually run out 34 point winners 15.7 (97) to 9.9 (63).

Despite another heavy tag, Brett Robinson outworked his opponents to be best on the ground for Kalamunda, with ruckman Peter Kerslake and Jarrod Brunskill also in the votes.

With a swag of players out through injury, the reserves were simply out classed and ended up getting thumped, despite the quality efforts of Tim McQuoid, Dylan Tyler Jeffrey and veteran Matt van Herk in the middle.

Earlier in the day. the colts also suffered a heavy loss, with Aaron Hutchison and Kane Swithenbank amongst the better players for Kalamunda.
