With a two game lead on top of the ladder, Harvey-Brunswick-Leschenault appear to be enjoying their football at the moment.

On Saturday, they host a Busselton side which kept its flickering finals hopes alive with a big victory over the Harvey Bulls on Sunday.

The Lions were challenged early against the Panthers at home on Saturday and incredibly trailed at quarter time.

But, with calming words from John Baggetta in the huddle, the home side took control and booted 18 of the last 19 goals of the match.

Post-game, Baggetta was pleased with his side’s ball use throughout.

“They were always going to come out hard at us,” he said.

“Once we weathered the initial pressure we were confident we could run the match out better. It was a really clinical performance, our ball use was excellent, and each player played their role as required.”

An inspired Augusta-Margaret River travels to Hands Oval on Saturday, where they will do battle with South Bunbury.

Following a rousing address from Matt Jamieson at three quarter time, the Hawks charged home with a wet sail against Bunbury and cemented themselves within the top three.

The Tigers have been improving over the past month and should be able to upset a few sides throughout the remainder of the year.

On Sunday, Eaton Boomers host the Collie Eagles, while Bunbury entertain the Bulls.
