It was the footy equivalent to a massacre on Saturday with the Cable Beach Greenbacks and the Derby Tigers defeating their opponents by a margin of more than 100 points.

First up was the Looma Eagles versus the Broome Saints who were no match for the mighty Eagles.

Zephaniah Skinner was the top goal scorer of the match, kicking eight goals for the Eagles.

He was followed by Japeth Bamba, Tyriek Buck and Ervin Skinner who kicked two goals each for the Eagles with Nicholas Green, Darren Kirkman and Deromitt Wilson slotting one goal each.

The Eagles got off to an early lead kicking seven first-term goals to the Saints’ single behind but the Saints came back in the second quarter, outscoring their opponents in that term.

But the Saints fell away in the second half with Looma kicking seven goals to the Saints three securing the victory, 17.16 (118) to 7.2 (44).

The Cable Beach Greenbacks came away with the largest victory margin this round, beating the Peninsula Bombers by 146 points.

Keifer Yu was the top goal kicker of the match, booting 11 goals for the Greenbacks.

Cedric Dann and Rhys Hajinoor also added to the Greenbacks’ huge margin, slotting three goals apiece for Cable Beach.

Zihan Angus, Daniel Cox, Keilan Davey, Oliver Davies and Steven Garlett filled out the rest of the goal scorers for the Greenbacks kicking one goal each.

The Bombers were no match for last year’s premiers, only kicking two behinds against Cable Beach the whole match resulting in an embarrassing defeat, 22.16 (148) to 0.2 (2).

Down at Derby Oval the Broome Towns were decimated by the Derby Tigers with the Tigers kicking more than 20 goals.

Sean Gregory and Naish Wallace managed to slot two goals each for the Towns throughout their humiliating defeat with Benjamin Goldie scoring one goal.

But it was a bloodbath for the Towns with the Tigers smashing them by 134 points, 26.13 (169) to 5.5 (35).

The Broome Bulls and the Bidyadanga Emus had a bye this weekend.
