For the third straight week there has been a draw in the South West Football League, after Carey Park and Bunbury could not be separated after four quarters of football at Kelly Park.

Bunbury forward Brett Peake snapped a goal with 90 seconds left on the clock to draw scores level and when the final siren went, Carey Park was locked on 11.3 (69) to the Bulldogs’ 10.9 (69).

The Panthers thrilled the crowd in the last quarter, kicking five goals to just three as they sought their first win of the season.

Eli Hill booted four goals for the home side, while Arron Hill kicked two in his 300th game, including a spectacular goal late in the game to give the Panthers hope.

Peake was again at his best booting five, while Patrick Farrant and Matt Martin chipped in with two.

The Harvey Bulls got back on the winners’ sheet with a 67-point thumping of Augusta-Margaret River at the Harvey Recreation Ground today.

In what was a dominant performance, the Bulls never really looked challenged and went on to record a 16.12 (108) to 5.11 (41) win.

Nic Carney, Thomas Smith, Brett Lofthouse and Adam Boone all booted three goals for the home side, while former Peel Thunder captain Brendon Jones was at his best, putting in an excellent performance.

South Bunbury have held off challengers the Eaton Boomers by 20 points at Hands Oval today.

The Tigers were in front for most of the match and went on to win 13.8 (86) to 9.8 (66).

South Bunbury forward Leigh Kohlmann booted six goals, including four before half-time, while Jay Walton kicked five for the Boomers.

Harvey-Brunswick-Leschenault claimed a thrilling two-point win over Donnybrook at Brunswick Oval last night.

After failing to score in the first quarter, the Lions began to find their momentum and survived a late challenge in the last term to win 10.4 (64) to 9.8 (62).

The Dons began the game the better team and inaccuracy cost them a larger lead at the first break, but the Lions kicked five goals to none in the second term to gain control.

The two sides shared goals in the second half and when Jacob Green booted his third for the Dons late in the last term it looked as if they would over-run the Lions.

But some spectacular marks by the Lions’ defenders allowed them to hold on and grab a win after two-straight draws.
