One of the leaders of the Dunsborough women’s side has spoken of the encouragement her side received from the Eaton Boomers at the weekend as the Sharks continue to search for the first win of their inaugural season.

Dunsborough leadership group member Holly Lombardi said the words of affirmation from the opposition in their 67-point loss to the Boomers would give them a boost heading into this weekend’s clash with Harvey-Brunswick-Leschenault.

“On the weekend against Eaton we played our best game, and we are seeing so much improvement,” Lombardi said.

“There was so much encouragement from the Eaton girls, they told us to keep our heads up and that they were once where we are.

“Getting the support of the other women’s teams in the league is giving us the push and the confidence to stick it out.”

Both the Sharks and Lions head into the match at the Dunsborough Playing Fields searching for their first win of the season after challenging starts.

Dunsborough have recorded losses against Bunbury, Carey Park and Eaton to start the season and sit in last place, while HBL are one rung above the on the ladder in eighth spot having lost to Busselton, Donnybrook and South Bunbury.

The Sharks and Lions have kicked just six and nine points respectively, but Lombardi said her side would be looking to change that this week.

“We are very excited, we are hoping to kick a few goals and put up a bit of a challenge on the scoreboard,” Lombardi said.
