Joel Houghton booted a season-high 10 goals as the Collie Eagles ended Donnybrook’s hopes of a finals berth by handing them a 65-point flogging at VC Mitchell Park today.

Houghton was dominant and booted all of his goals before three-quarter time, as the Eagles won 19.18 (132) to 10.7 (67).

Donnybrook started the game well and matched the Eagles in the first term, but booted six goals to 14 after half-time to suffer one of their season’s heaviest defeats.

Augusta-Margaret River cemented a spot in the finals with a 37-point win over Harvey-Brunswick-Leschenault at Brunswick Oval today.

The Lions kicked the first two goals of the game and looked as if they would take it up to the in-form Hawks, who won 12.10 (82) to 6.9 (45).

The Harvey Bulls have also solidified their place in the top five after defeating the Eaton Boomers by 22 points at the Harvey Recreation Ground.

The Boomers were in the game at quarter time, but faded fast to lose 11.12 (78) to 7.8 (56).

Bunbury claimed the Syd Jackson-Max McGuire Cup after belting South Bunbury by 58 points at Hands Oval on Saturday.

The Bulldogs booted the first six goals of the game and never looked liked surrendering their lead in a 15.6 (96) to 5.8 (38) victory.

South Bunbury coach Mark Docking named one of the youngest sides which has played league all year, while Bunbury were without key forward Matt Martin due to injury.

Bunbury stunned the Tigers with three goals in the first few minutes of the game through Patrick Farrant (two goals), Brett Peake (five goals) and Travis Justins (two goals) thanks to the efforts of Cameron Lamonica and Jordan Falco in the midfield.
