Fine team per­for­mance keeps Bulls in the hunt

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - SPORT - Dar­rel Cock­ram

THE Har­vey Bulls ce­mented a home elim­i­na­tion fi­nal and a first win un­der lights at their home ground when they claimed an em­phatic 64point vic­tory over Don­ny­brook at the Har­vey Re­cre­ation Ground on Satur­day.

The Bulls have plenty of mo­men­tum head­ing into the first fi­nal thanks to the 20.7 (127) to 9.9 (63) vic­tory.

Don­ny­brook gave the Bulls plenty to think about in the open­ing eight min­utes when they kicked three quick goals cour­tesy of Kieran Hug (two goals) and young­ster Dion Parker.

The Dons let the Bulls off the hook as Mark Cheru­bino and Rhys Anzellino both kicked vi­tal goals thanks to a pair of 50m penal­ties.

An­other goal to Parker and one to Ja­cob Green had the Dons up by 11 points at the break and in line to cause an up­set.

The Bulls put an end to that quickly in the sec­ond term when livewire for­ward Ja­cob Pick­ett kicked two goals in the open­ing min­utes and Josh Krispyn put the Bulls in front.

The Dons were strug­gling to get into at­tack, but a long goal from Ja­cob Ken­dle and an­other to Sean Lynch re­stored their lead.

Hay­ward Medal fancy Bren­don Jones and 16-year-old Jaxon Egan put the game back in the Bulls’ favour at half-time with a goal each.

The Bulls ended the con­test with an eight-goal third quar­ter with a num­ber of play­ers stand­ing out.

Krispyn was in the thick of the ac­tion, Dean Miller con­tin­ued his good form while Jones, Dar­ren Rum­ble and the likes of Pa­trick Ital­iano, Dy­lan Sel­lick, Kyle Hick­man, Cheru­bino, Egan and Matt Rob­son all weighed in on a fine team per­for­mance.

The Dons bat­tled to the end but could only man­age two goals in the sec­ond half as their sea­son ended.
