Looma Eagles have continued their journey towards the top of the WKFL ladder after securing a comfortable win over Towns on Saturday.

From the first siren, the Eagles were firing out the gate, booting five goals in quick succession to get the early lead.

It seemed Towns were left at the starting block for much of the first term as they struggled to match the Eagles’ fast pace.

However, Towns showed signs of life late in the term after booting a goal to trail by 32 points at quarter-time.

In the second quarter Towns found their groove and tried to put the pressure on Looma despite the pace of the match stepping up another gear.

Although Towns attempted to fight back, Looma continued to be too strong by booting an additional four goals to lead 10.4 (64) to 3.5 (23) at half-time.

Following the main break, Looma continued to distance themselves further from Towns with the likes of Lewis Broome, Tyrese Skeen, Brandon Skeen and Deromitt Wilson continuing to boot goal after goal.

It seemed Towns struggled once again to keep up, going on to trail by 61 points at the final break.

The final term seemed like an implicit victory lap for the Eagles, although a late surge saw Towns attempt to fight back once again and shut the Eagles down through defence.

However, the outcome of the match seemed already determined with the Eagles going on to win 16.9 (105) to 6.9 (45).

Looma Eagles will look to make it four wins in a row when they take on Broome Bulls at Father McMahon Oval on Saturday, while Towns will continue to strive for their first win when they go up against Peninsula Bombers.
