SWNFL 2019, Round Five: Bunbury earns 55 to 42 win over Eaton

Bunbury continued its dominance with an impressive display against Eaton in Round Five of the South West Netball Football League's home-and-away season.

Efforts from Goal Shooter Cass Shine and Goal Attack Charmaine Slater put the Bulldogs ahead by six goals at the first change.

Both teams were quick around the court and strong in defence throughout the second term.

Leading 26 to 19 at half time, the Bulldogs slotted 18 to 8 in a one-sided third quarter.

The Boomers picked up steam and shot the first seven goals of the fourth quarter, before Bunbury held on to secure a 55 to 42 win.

South Bunbury struggled against a fearsome Carey Park at the South West Sports Centre.

Dominant in all-four quarters, the Panthers notched up a 76 to 36 triumph and their third win of the season.

Out of respect for Lachlan "Lockie" Hernaman and his family, the tie between Harvey and Harvey-Brunswick-Leschenault did not go ahead.

Teams from across the region observed a minute's silence and wore black armbands on Saturday afternoon.

Bunbury currently sits one win clear above Carey Park, HBL, and South Bunbury on the leaderboard.

Augusta-Margaret River remains fifth, ahead of the Boomers, Magpies, and Bulls.

Following this weekend's bye, HBL will clash with Eaton on Saturday, May 18 in the 2019 Belt Up Round.

Bunbury will host Busselton on Sunday, while the Hawks will take on Carey Park in Margaret River.

Harvey and South Bunbury will return to the court in Round Seven.
