ROUND eight of the Hills Football Association competition saw Bullsbrook up against Mundaring, and although a close contest was expected the Saints had a depleted list when it came to selection time.

The Saints did not score a goal after half time leading to a 17.15 (117) to 2.5 (17) loss to the Roos. Izac Davies battled hard against Kyle Tenardi in the ruck.
Braeden Hilgert and Dylan O’Loghlen provided the Roos forwards with several opportunities. Sam Butler held some strong marks to kick a couple of goals.

The second quarter was a fairly even contest, as Jack Glanz picked up several contested possessions and Jesse Ball managed to read the loose ball and deliver some accurate passes. The main highlight for the Saints was when Beau Nairn toe poked a goal from a metre out. The game turned into a one way contest in the second half.

With only one player on the bench Bullsbrook were restricted with their interchange options. The Saints were held goalless in the third as the Roos managed six from 11 attempts. Rory Bennett and Shaun Booker were doing their best to slow down the Roos advances. Robert Di Salvio was dominating on the wing along with Daniel Thomas around half back.

Another goalless quarter for the Saints in the last, as they were completely overwhelmed by a weight of numbers.
Mundaring piled on another six.

Sam Butler rounded out an even four quarters to end up being the recipient of the Think Mental Health round football, mainly due to his seven-goal contribution.
For Bullsbrook no one tried harder than their captain Jaiden Fernie, who was well supported by Brandon Ghirardi.
Christian Huggins also worked hard for the four quarters.
Round eight was the first of the two rounds dedicated to Think Mental Health throughout the WA Country Football League.
