South Bunbury and Harvey-Brunswick-Leschenault started the South West Football League Women’s competition with victories in round one.

The Tigers set up their 30-point victory against Carey Park in the first half, when they kicked seven goals to just one.

Carey Park settled after half-time and worked tirelessly in defence to keep South Bunbury goalless in the 7.11 (53) to 3.5 (23) defeat.

Katie-Jayne Grieve and Ebony Bilcich played fantastic games for the Tigers, setting up South Bunbury’s forward thrusts.

Bethany Bond and Kristy Jetta benefited from this, both booting two goals.

For the Panthers, Karinda Farrant and Casey Hansen were their side’s best, while Ayiesha Page, Shontai Farrant and Hansen all kicked goals.

Harvey-Brunswick-Leschenault had a much easier time on Sunday, holding Busselton goalless to win by 72 points.

It took until the final stages of the last quarter for the Magpies to score their only behind in the 10.13 (73) to 0.1 (1) loss.

Former South West Slammer Brittany Gliddon was dominant in the ruck, showing skills a cut above the rest in the big victory.

Kaitlyn Hoy kicked three goals for the Lions in a good effort up forward, while Louise Bignell chipped in with two.

For Busselton, Demi Liddle tried hard in the midfield and used the ball, while Shelley Hull used her run and carry to try to take the Mapgies forward.

This weekend the Harvey Bulls host the Lions in the only women’s game for round two.
