Three games kicked off the final round of SWFL action on Saturday, with victories to Donnybrook, Augusta-Margaret River and South Bunbury.

At Kelly Park, Donnybrook secured the minor premiership with a 11.11 (77) to 9.14 (68) victory over a determined Carey Park.

Although never seriously looking like they would be defeated, the visitors were required to weather a late charge by the Panthers, who booted three goals in three minutes as the clock hit time-on in the final quarter.

Dion Parker was best afield for the Dons, while Ryan Bennell showed plenty of promise for the Panthers.

Down at Sir Stewart Bovell Park in Busselton, South Bunbury cruised to victory over the Magpies which increased their chances of finishing in third spot.
