They may no longer be undefeated in 2019 but the Cable Beach Greenbacks have continued to dominate

The Greenbacks took on Towns in the closing match of WKFL round eight, where they were quick to establish control of the match.

Towns showed plenty of promise in the opening quarter, bringing the fight to the Greenbacks, and answering Greenback Matthew Kennelly’s goal with one from James Rouse.

However, Towns’ hopes were quickly dashed when the Greenbacks hit their straps.

Sam Fong booted four goals to give the Greenbacks a 26-point lead at the first change.

The Greenbacks’ dominance continued into the second term, while Towns struggled to keep up.

Fong, Kennelly, Jarras Sailor, Zaccahaeus Bilgin, Azmen Sebastian, Kiefer Yu, Dion Parriman and Ruzlyan Balacky all came together for an eight-goal blitz, while the back line provided strong defence to keep Towns scoreless for the quarter.

After the main break the Greenbacks controlled the match.

The final quarter seemed like a victory lap for the Greenbacks and while Towns tried their hardest to bring the margin down it blew out to a 23.15 (153) to 2.3 (15) shellacking.

The Greenbacks will strive for a second consecutive win when they take on the Looma Eagles on Saturday, while Towns travel to play the Derby Tigers.
