The Bidyadanga Emus continued their early undefeated streak by picking up a close win over the weekend, despite an early charge from the Broome Bulls.

Playing on their home turf for the first time this season, Bidyadanga struggled to stop the Bulls in the opening term of the round 3 WKFL match-up, with Dean Fancote and Benjamin Daniels striking early.

The Bulls went into the first break with an 18-point lead, but it was all the Emus from there.

The Bidyadanga side kept their opponents goalless in the second quarter and managed to bag a couple of their own to reduce the margin to four points at half-time.

The Bulls managed to put just one goal on the board in a tight third quarter, which saw the Emus continue to chip away at them, leading to a one-point lead in the Bulls’ favour heading into the last term.

Another two goals were all the Emus needed to run away with a three-point over the Bulls, who again put only one score on the board in the last quarter.

Both sides will look to nab easy wins next week as the Bulls go one-on-one with Towns, who sit last on the ladder, while the Emus will face off against the Saints.
