It will be a battle to evade the dreaded wooden spoon when Donnybrook and Eaton go head to head this weekend. Facing off at VC Mitchell Park on Sunday, both teams will look to find some form during the back half of the season and start a late quest to lift themselves from the bottom of the ladder. Despite putting up great fights against rival teams, both the Dons and the Boomers remain on four premiership points each for the 2021 SWFL season. Last weekend, a lightning start for the Bulldogs helped the reigning premiers retain the Peter Betti Cup over Donnybrook 10.8 (68) to 6.3 (39) at VC Mitchell Park. Despite a less than ideal opening quarter and ultimately falling short by 29 points, the Dons showed plenty of promise in front of a home crowd by providing a physical challenge for the Bulldogs. On the other hand, Eaton were able to get themselves an early lead over Carey Park at Glen Huon Reserve but then faded fast against the Panthers. A five-goal comeback during the second term saw the Panthers run away with the contest despite providing plenty of defensive pressure. Although the Dons will hold the home-ground advantage during Sunday’s match by hosting a second consecutive match, Eaton holds the historical advantage having won four of their most recent meetings including a 55-point drubbing at VC Mitchell Park during round 17 of the 2019 season.
