Beach turn Bombers’ tide

Broome Advertiser - - Sport - Robert Dougherty

Ca­ble Beach proved they are strong late-sea­son fin­ish­ers by over­whelm­ing the Penin­sula Bombers in Broome at the week­end.

The Bombers had an un­easy start with just a sin­gle goal and two be­hinds to Beach’s 4.3 at quar­ter-time.

Then Beach’s for­wards hit their straps to run out easy win­ners 15.11 (101) to 11.8 (54).

The Bulls held the Saints to just three goals as they tri­umphed 20.14 (134) to 3.2 (20) at Broome Aquatic and Recre­ation Cen­tre — the Saints man­aged two of their goals in the first quar­ter but were kept quiet for the re­main­der of their Fri­day night clash.

Derby Tigers have col­lected an­other scalp on the top of the lad­der as they fought hard to beat Looma Ea­gles at Derby Oval on Satur­day.

The Tigers tri­umphed 7.12 (54) to 6.9 (45) as both teams strug­gled to find the goals.

Looma kicked nine be­hinds and Derby booted a dozen.

Towns showed signs of en­cour­age­ment in their clash against reign­ing pre­miers Bidyadanga Emus at Haynes Oval on Satur­day.

It was a shock first quar­ter as both teams fin­ished tied at 3.2, but the Emus would run out the rest of the game with at least a 10-point buf­fer at ev­ery change.

The score at the fi­nal siren was Emus 16.14 (110) to Towns 7.7 (49).
