The first Busselton-Dunsborough football derby of 2023 is locked in for Saturday afternoon at the Dunsborough Playing Fields, as the Onshore Cup Football Association seasons gets into the full swing of things.

Both the Bombers and Mulies were impressive victors in the opening round and will go into the match with plenty of confidence.

In their 125-point win over Dalyellup last Saturday, Busselton used the corridor extremely well. Although their final score of 17.24 (126) was a tad inaccurate, the sheer amount of scoring opportunities generated was a massive plus.

Additionally, the zip and pressure applied by Shay Pascall and Ryan Zabaznow — who mowed down an Eagles opponent with a sensational tackle in the opening term — was a real asset for the reigning premiers.

The Mulies were never challenged during their 25.17 (167) to 1.1 (7) win over the Boyanup Boars and enjoyed an even spread of 12 individual goalkickers.
