It was another action-packed round of WKFL at the Broome Recreation and Aquatic Centre on Saturday afternoon as the Cable Beach Greenbacks crushed the Looma Eagles in their round seven clash down at Nipper Roe Oval.

Cable Beach took the first three goals of the game giving themselves a solid lead with Francis Winfield providing a solid defence in backline causing several turnovers.

Looma’s Marvin Watson took the first goal for Looma while Kye Pindan proved to be vital through the centre, setting up Looma’s second goal from Jehvarni Skinner.

But Cable Beach remained dominant with CJ Oakley rushing through the centre and scoring a goal himself towards the end of the first quarter, 5.2 (32) to 2.3 (15).

Looma took the first goal of second quarter just before Winfield scored the first goal of the term for Cable Beach after setup from the centre from Oakley.

Solid efforts from Navrone James kept the Cable Beach attackers at bay and set Looma up for their fourth goal.

Rhonen Maher kicked Cable Beach’s seventh goal late into second term just before Jesciniah Clancy locked in another for Looma fifth just before the half-time buzzer, 5.4 (34) to 7.3 (45).

The third quarter was bogged down with erratic play and a plethora of packs with Looma scoring a slew of behinds as they desperately tried for a goal.

Cable Beach managed to break through and score another goal late into the third term to extend their lead before Tyrese Skeen finally broke through to score a goal for Looma late into the third term bringing them them within 29 points, 6.6 (42) to 11.5 (71).

Looma started to struggle to keep up as Cable Beach pulled ahead during the last term.

Cable Beach’s Steven Garlett scored a goal late in fourth term which was quickly followed up by Liam Reimer with another goal.

Cable Beach took control in the final minutes with Reimer scoring another goal after marking it 1m out from the goal line.

It was followed up by Sonny Dann with another two goals from the forward pocket, bringing Cable Beach’s lead to 57 points, securing themselves the win, 6.8 (44) to 16.5 (101).
