Emus pre­vail with ease

Broome Advertiser - - Sports - Jakeb Wad­dell

Bidyadanga Emus walked all over Penin­sula Bombers last Satur­day to se­cure their sec­ond win in as many rounds in the West Kim­ber­ley Foot­ball League, de­spite glimpses of bril­liance from the los­ing side.

The Emus came out strong at Haynes Oval, with Lin­ton Butt kick­ing an early goal to put them on the score­board early, but the Bombers re­sponded quickly by boot­ing a mas­sive goal from nearly 50m out.

The Bombers’ back line was im­pres­sive in the first term, but it was not enough to pre­vent the Emus from go­ing into the first break with a 14-point lead.

Leonard Gor­don kicked the first goal of the sec­ond quar­ter for the Bombers, be­fore Emus for­ward Jay­den Thomas snapped the goal of the day from the pocket. The Emus missed a fair few chances up for­ward, but a cou­ple of last-minute goals from Christopher Marston and Thomas gave them a 29-point lead head­ing into half-time.

The Bombers struck early again in the third term, with im­por­tant goals by Ruzan Ha­jiNoor and Ash­ley Spowart keep­ing them in touch. But Trent Brolga broke the mo­men­tum and put the Emus on the score­board for the third quar­ter, be­fore the side kicked another four in a row.

Both sides ap­peared worn out in the fourth term and 10 min­utes of play passed be­fore Marston booted the first goal of the quar­ter. He nailed another min­utes later af­ter a 50m penalty, be­fore Den­zel Hunter nailed another to ex­tend the mar­gin.

The Emus’ ac­cu­racy in front of goal in the fi­nal quar­ter helped them to the mas­sive 77-point win.

The Emus face Ca­ble Beach at Fa­ther McMa­hon Oval on Satur­day while the Bombers will take on the Bulls.
