Cable Beach Greenbacks have notched their third consecutive dominant effort in the 2019 WKFL season.

The Greenbacks took on the Peninsula Bombers during the league’s Belt Up round, looking to achieve a third straight victory, while the Bombers looked to build momentum after their round 2 win.

From the outset, Greenbacks’ Sonny Dann seemed determined to break his nine-goal record, booting a goal within seconds of the first siren.

As the Greenbacks looked to dominate early, Dann booted three more goals, and another came from Benjamin Gasior to keep the Bombers goalless at quarter-time.

In the second quarter, the Bombers fought back, getting a goal on the board through Timothy Cox.

However, the Greenbacks began to shut down the Bombers at every turn.

Dann added four more goals to his tally until a suspected ankle injury stopped him in his tracks. Gasior booted a second goal, and Sam Fong and Ethan Corpus scored to increase the Greenbacks’ margin.

Cable Beach held a 61-point advantage at the main break.

After half-time, the Greenbacks continued to dominate as the Bombers struggled to keep up.

Frustrations were at an all-time high when a yellow card was issued to Peninsula Bombers’ Tyron Cox early in the quarter.

Although Bombers’ Colin Skeen booted a goal for his team, Greenbacks’ Matthew Kennelly and Kiefer Yu added goals of their own to build up their team’s advantage.

In the final term, the Greenbacks continued to dominate, adding four more goals to their tally from Lynch, Yu, Kennelly and Bradley Horsman to secure the win. The Bombers were fading fast as they continued struggling to keep up, but they managed to add two more goals to their tally via Bart Djiagween.

However, their efforts were too little too late as the Greenbacks went on to record their third consecutive win, defeating the Bombers by 95 points.

The Greenbacks will look to make it four wins in a row and end the Derby Tigers’ winning streak when they square off at Derby Oval on Saturday.

The Bombers will look to bounce back when they go up against Looma Eagles at Father McMahon Oval.
