Eaton Boomers league coach Brett Maguire believes a team-oriented approach against Harvey-Brunswick-Leschenault on Saturday afternoon at Glen Huon Reserve could hold his side in good stead to pinch a victory.

The Boomers, who stormed clear to victory with a brutal second half against the Bulls on Saturday, are beginning to return to some of their best football.

“The main focus for us has been that when we don’t have control of the footy, we make sure that we defend, as staying in the game during these times is crucial.

“So the focus this week has been not getting lost in those parts of the game.”

Maguire was also pleased with how Heath Ryder and Jarrod Humphries combined for 11 goals between them in the forward line on Saturday.

“But when we play sides like HBL we need to share that load,” he said.“It’s an area which we are continuing to build on.”
