They might have had a delayed start to their season but Advantage Broome North have already proved themselves as early contenders in the West Kimberley Football League’s AFL 9s competition with a dominant victory.

Advantage Broome North went head-to-head with Matadors in round two of competition last Friday night and it was clear Advantage Broome North had come to dominate.

Advantage were firing out the gate from the first siren, kicking several goals to give themselves an ample lead while Matadors were left in the dust.

Despite the Matadors struggling to convert during the first half, they managed to hit the scoreboard with a goal from Suzie Luhrs.

However, a late goal from Bojesse Pigram saw Advantage hold the four-goal lead 5.0 (30) to 1.0 (6).
