The Year 10-12 youth girls were back to their winning ways in Manjimup, with a hard fought win against the tenacious South Bunbury.

Zara Blee and Savannah Ashworth were instrumental in many forward movements.

Rochelle Heath enjoyed the open spaces playing through the midfield and Ella Nock was the leader of the miserly defence while the Ellis sisters Tegan and Claire were able to cash in on the abundance of forward line action.

Accuracy at goal-kicking was certainly something coach Shelley Scott will be working on during the week, reflected in the final score Warren Blackwood 5.13 (43) d South Bunbury 4.0 (24).

The Year 10 boys flexed their muscles against Marist in Bunbury for a final score of Warren Blackwood 10.2 (62 ) d Marist 0.2 (2).

The Bombers treated their much travelled supporters to champagne football under trying conditions.

Harrison Brandsma, Beau Ryan and Lex Wright led from the front as their teammates cashed in on the abundance of supply.

Max East and Jack Ryan contributed workman-like performances, continually providing space and opportunities for their teammates.

Coach Jimmy Craig was super impressed with the talk and cohesion the team is piecing together after only four games together.

Polar-like conditions greeted the Year 11-12s boys in Dunsborough but that did not stop them winning by 11 points, 6.8 (44) to Dunsborough 5.3 (33).

Jordan Johnson’s willingness to present himself as a lead up half forward and Bailey Pollard’s strength in the contests ensured the Bombers had good options when moving forward.

Odin Ylioff was tenacious as a small forward keeping the ball inside the Bombers’ attacking area. Hard defensive running and cool heads in the last quarter from Blake Wood, Lachy Smith and Dylan Edwards ensured a close 11-point victory.

This Saturday, all three teams travel to Australind to play HBL, with youth girls at 11.30 am, Year 10s at 1pm and the Year 11-12s at 3pm.
