Cable Beach immediately took the lead from the first siren on Saturday afternoon, holding a commanding lead by half time, 10.7 (67) to 3.2 (20).

Sonny Dann was a powerhouse for the side, booting 10 of the team’s 22 goals, with Rohen Maher also putting in massive strides and locking in five goals himself.

But by the end of the third term it was all over for the Saints, with the Greenbacks going on to kick a further eight goals in the final term to seal the deal, 22.12 (144) to 5.5 (35).

The Looma Eagles racked themselves up another win down on Nipper Roe Oval, this time against the Bidyadanga Emus who put up an impressive fight against a dominant Looma but couldn’t hold out against the ferocious side.

There was less than a goal in the game by half time with Looma holding the lead, 5.7 (37) to 5.3 (33).

Winston Nellie was instrumental for the Eagles, kicking four goals while Shamus Spinks was not far behind, booting three goals for himself.

But the Emus dropped back significantly during the final half letting the Eagles fly away with the win, 14.9 (93) to 7.8 (50).

The Broome Bulls also earned themselves a commanding victory over last year’s runner-ups the Derby Tigers who have continued their fall from local football grace and are now clinging onto the fourth rung of the ladder with the hungry Bulls sitting just under them, 10.12 (72) to 8.3 (51).

The Peninsula Bombers forfeited their match to the Broome Towns due to a lack of players letting the Towns chalk up another win on the ladder.

In the women’s league, Cable Beach also took down the Broome Saints this time with a 62-point margin, 10.9 (69) to 1.1 (7).

Katherine Dann and Edith Boundary carried the team on to victory, locking in three goals each, with efforts from Joanne Dick, Catherine Meehan-McCarthy, Lyeesha Mongoo, Lily Longley and Elainah Coffin helping to seal the deal.

The Broome Bulls took down the Derby Tigers, 2.5 (17) to 9.2 (56).

The Broome Towns, the Looma Eagles and the Peninsula Bombers had a bye this week and will return to the field next round.
