Last Sunday theEaglesLeague went a long way to cementing their place near the top of the ladder when they accounted for the Bunbury Bulldogs.

TheEaglesgot off to a flyer when Rhys Chappell and Cameron Davidson applied scoreboard pressure by kicking majors before the bulldogs got into gear.

Further goals to Davidson (2) rewarded the home side to go into the 1st break leading 5.2 to 1.1.

Paul Rinder, assisted by Reid Saunders, Kyle Shanahan ,Matt Blackford and Mat Michael kept the pressure on the visitors.

The 2nd term saw Bunbury kick with the aid of the breeze adding 3 goals for the term, while holding theEaglesgoalless to see the margin reduced to 5pts at the main break.

The game tightened as players realised the importance of the result. Goals became critical with neither side able to break into open space to create opportunities for their forwards.

Jake Rodgers, Corey Griggs, Travis Cleggett, Adam Bignell and Joel Mahar stepped up in the tight confines to allow Jayce Fontana and Saunders to extend theEagleslead, before an answering goal came from the boot of Blair Della Franca as theEagleswent to the last break leading 7.5 (47) to 5.4 (34).

The final term saw theEaglesapply the pressure with goals from Ray Daniels (2) and Davidson kicking his 4th major for the game.
