The 2019 WKFL season has been a tumultuous one filled with shocking upsets but there is one thing that has remained consistent — the dominance of the Bidyadanga Emus.

The side picked up yet another easy win on the weekend by thumping the Peninsula Bombers by 92 points, keeping themselves one game clear at the top of the ladder by doing so.

The round nine victory marked nine straight for the remote community side, which has merged as the favourite to win this year’s flag after beating the red-hot Cable Beach Greenbacks last month.

Key forward Selywn Hunter booted four goals in Saturday’s big win, with Brenton Bangu, Jesse Bloomer and Andre Kitty also bagging a handful.

Caleb Bloomer and Angelo Thomas were again among the team’s best.

But it was not all gloom for the Bombers on Saturday — the side put forth a solid performance in the first half and managed to hold their own by kicking four goals against the Emus.

Tyson Dann and Boston Djiagween were both standouts on the day, with the latter booting one of his own.

Bidyadanga will take on the Broome Bulls this Saturday, while the Bombers will go against Cable Beach.
