Cable Beach proved they are strong late-season finishers by overwhelming the Peninsula Bombers in Broome at the weekend.

The Bombers had an uneasy start with just a single goal and two behinds to Beach’s 4.3 at quarter-time.

Then Beach’s forwards hit their straps to run out easy winners 15.11 (101) to 11.8 (54).

Derby Tigers have collected another scalp on the top of the ladder as they fought hard to beat Looma Eagles at Derby Oval on Saturday.

The Tigers triumphed 7.12 (54) to 6.9 (45) as both teams struggled to find the goals.

Looma kicked nine behinds and Derby booted a dozen.

Towns showed signs of encouragement in their clash against reigning premiers Bidyadanga Emus at Haynes Oval on Saturday.

It was a shock first quarter as both teams finished tied at 3.2, but the Emus would run out the rest of the game with at least a 10-point buffer at every change.

The score at the final siren was Emus 16.14 (110) to Towns 7.7 (49).
