A decision to re-brand appears to have galvanised the Bunbury Eagles Football Club, who soared to victory against second-placed team Dunsborough Prior to Saturday’s home clash against the Dunsborough Mulies at Hay Park, club president Damien Newman outlined the reason for the Eagles shedding its “Dalyellup” ties during the season. “Since our inception in 2021, the club has proudly represented Dalyellup,” he said in a written statement. “This year however, moving to a new home ground in the Bunbury city seems a timely opportunity to re-brand to a name that reflects our new base. “The Dalyellup Eagles committee in consultation with the playing group, are proud to announce that from round eight, we will be known as the Bunbury Eagles.” Needing a win to secure fourth spot, the Eagles won 8.7 (55) to 5.4 (34) against the Mulies, with Corey Dann (three goals) and Lucas Du Preez among their side’s best. Unfortunately for the Mulies, they were routinely unable to hit targets when going forward, which hampered their ability to generate positive scoreboard pressure when the game was up for grabs late. Attention now shifts to Friday, when the OCFA will participate in division three of the Nutrien Ag Solutions County Football Championships. It will be the association’s first appearance at the carnival in six years.
