In welcome spring sunshine, the Donnybrook Football Club’s year seventeamdefeated Harvey-Brunswick-Leschenault 8.7.55 to 0.3.33in their semi final to set up a preliminary final match against Collie next week. The winner will progress to the grand final on September 17.

Having socred a similar win againstHBL earlier in the season, Donnybrook wereconfident and were on the board early with a goal to Scott Tuia.

The Dons saw plenty more of the ball in the first term but failed to convert it onto the scoreboard.

In the second term,Ryan Babich, Mason Cooper andLouis McCully were dangerous in attack while Aidan Hutchinson, Mitchell Russell andTom Anderson were controlling the midfield. By the main break, the Dons had control of the match 4.4.28to 0.3.3.

Staunch defence by Mitchell Woods, Riley Vitali, Ben Wedderburn, Ryan Aldridge, MacFleay and Jarrah Tinker helped keep the opposition goalless.

The third quarter was an arm wrestle, but the flood gates opened in the last as Donnybrook took control.

Babich kicked his third goal and the mosquito fleet of Kade Wallace, Stephen Harper and Phillip Wringe got right into the action.

Donnybrook year eightswere next and this time the opposition was South Bunbury. A slow start from the Dons meant the team had to work hard for their win.

Darcy Healey, Cale Mifflin and Jayden Sutton were called on to do plenty in defence as the Tigers were generally first to the ball and had the half time advantage 4.4.28 to 2.2.14.

The momentum started to swing the Dons way in the third with the Hodgetts brothers, Adrian and Cam, goinghard at the ball whileMitchell Brown was getting in and under and Jared Bowers was marking everything that came his way.

Nick Scott takes a mark.

Down by a point at the final change,Dons’ coachJulian Burgess swung a few changes and they all worked.

Rory Beeson was excellent across half back, Nick Scott was sent to the midfield with immediate effect and Mifflin was asked to do the ruck work.

The two Zacs, Burgess and Trigwell, helped lock the ball in the Dons forward line and eventually South Bunbury buckled.

Josh Cusato found his touch to bag two majors whileAussie Tinker lookeddangerous and the Dons piled on fivegoals for the quarter to triumph 9.8.62 to 5.8.38.

Having finished top of their division, the year eightteam move directly to the grand final and enjoy the benefit of a week off next Saturday.
