Ea­gles soar over Towns

Broome Advertiser - - Sport - Robert Dougherty

Looma Ea­gles swooped to pluck a win from Broome Towns, kick­ing 19 goals dur­ing their week­end match.

Towns was held to two goals and two points for the first two quar­ters of last Saturday’s match, while the Ea­gles rushed ahead to chalk up 128 points to 32 by the fi­nal siren.

Ca­ble Beach rolled Broome Saints in round 11’s Fri­day night game at the Broome Aquatic and Re­cre­ation Cen­tre, 106 points to 27.

A one-sided con­test from the out­set, Saints were held to two goals and three points in the sec­ond quar­ter and went into the fourth quar­ter with the same to­tal.

The news was not much bet­ter for Bidyadanga Emus, who were in trou­ble early against Broome Bulls.

The Emus se­cured their first score af­ter 24 min­utes, and strug­gled to lay tack­les and con­test the ball as the back line fought to clear the footy.

The Bulls seized the op­por­tu­nity, boot­ing four goals in the first quar­ter and looked to seal the game promptly be­fore the de­fend­ing champs from Bidyadanga put their rep­u­ta­tion for run­ning teams into the ground in the fi­nal quar­ter to the test.

The Bulls held out to win the match 45 points to a latesurg­ing Emus with 37 points.

The Derby Tigers have mauled an­other team on their home turf, crush­ing the Penin­sula Bombers by 140 points to 26 in Derby. The Tigers would kick a mon­ster ef­fort of 20 goals and 20 points by the end of the game.
