Saints get their revenge

Saints get their revenge

The game was a chance for the Saints to make amends for their 21-point loss in round two of the Hills Football Association in April.

The first quarter saw Bullsbrook jump ahead and hold a two-goal lead at the first change.

Wundowie fought hard in the second quarter and kicked five unanswered goals to go in at half time with their noses in front. After a revving from their coach, the Saints came out fired up in the third term and kept the Warriors goalless while kicking a few of their own.

The last quarter was an evenly fought contest but the Saints held on for an eight- point win. Final scores were Bullsbrook 12.10 (82) to Wundowie 11.8 (74).

Best players for Bullsbrook were Scott Noonan, Jack Stops and Jack Chabriere.

Wundowie’s best included Jay Beswick, Jayke Soltwisch and Gavin Hislop.

In other games, ladder leader Chidlow received a big fright from fourth-placed Pickering Brook before prevailing by just four points, 14.12 (96) to 14.7 (91).

It looked to be business as usual when the Cougars stormed away to an early lead but the Hawks stormed back to make it an even contest by the long break.

In a titanic second-half battle, Chidlow emerged the narrowest of winners.

Jacob York starred for the Hawks, along with Luke Jones and Matthew Nugent.

Michael McKinlay was among the Cougars’ best, along with Alex Radonic. Adam McKinlay booted six goals to take his season tally to 107.

Gidgegannup continued on their winning way with an effortless 160-point win over an undermanned Forrestfield, setting up an enthralling top-of the table clash with Chidlow.

Drew Mitchell booted nine goals for the winners.

Gidge’s only loss for the season was in its round eight humbling at the hands of the Cougars on June 9.
