A win for the Bulldogs

Brian Pallister

Bullsbrook managed to hang on and get over the line by two points over a very determined and fast finishing Gidgegannup in last weekend’s round 8 match.

The first quarter was all the Saints as they took advantage of a strong breeze to kick four goals to none.

Sammy Thompson was reading the ruck taps and sending the ball forward.

A completely different complexion came over the game after the break as the Saints were breaking down across halfback and the Bulldogs continued to attack.

The Bulldogs had reduced the Saints lead to 13 points by the main break and again outscored the Saints in the third, despite the fact their backline was under constant pressure.

With the Saints only six points in front at the final siren, they needed to dig deep and find something if they were going to hold on.

A season-ending knee injury to Nathaniel Jansen saw youngster Ben Broughton moved into the ruck against a pair of far more experienced players. Gidgegannup kept getting closer as both teams started to feel the effects of the very wet and heavy conditions.

Justin Pitt would be pleased with the way his players pushed hard after quarter time to display the improvement they have made over recent weeks.

Bullsbrook 8-14-62 def Gidgegannup 9-6-60.
