06-08-12 ROUND 13 - BULLS DEMOLISH YOUNG BOMBERS SIDE

The Bulls have recorded a resounding 147 point win over a young and inexperienced Bombers outfit on Saturday which saw them jump Derby into third spot through a much needed boost to percentage.  The Bulls took control from the opening bounce and were never in doubt, the only drawback was poor kicking on goal which saw them squander an even larger winning margin.  Final scores were BULLS 22.20 (152) to Bombers 0.5 (5). <results> <ladder>


30-07-12 ROUND 12 - BULLS FIRST TEAM TO BEAT DERBY IN DERBY THIS YEAR

The Broome Bulls made the 220km trip to Derby on the weekend, knowing that their season was on the line after letting Looma run over the top of them the previous week. After a sluggish start the boys once again controlled the ball for long periods of time but costly skill areas and an inability to convert possession into goals hurt bad as they headed into each break trailing the Tigers.  Seeing similarities in last weeks game, the Bulls lifted in the 3rd quarter and got to within 2 points, only to see two late goals push the margin out to 14 points at the last change.  Knowing their finals chance was slipping away from them, the boys pumped themselves up and finally found their rhythm kicking 5 unanswered goals to turn a 14 point deficit into a 16 point win - the first team to travel to Derby and beat them all year! <results> <ladder>

13-07-12 ROUND 11 - BULLS GO DOWN TO FAST FINISHING LOOMA

The Broome Bulls have had their winning streak brought to an end by a fleet footed and fast finishing Looma Eagles on the weekend.  The Bulls controlled the play for the entire game but were unable to turn it into scoreboard pressure, allowing Looma to lead at every quarter.  Going into the last quarter just 8 points down, the Bulls peppered the goals looking for the winning score only to see Looma rebound over their heads and pile on 6 unanswered goals in a blistering 10 minutes to seal the win and relegate Bulls back to 5th on the table. <results> <ladder>


16-07-12 ROUND 10 - BULLS WIN OVER SAINTS, TAKE 3RD SPOT ON THE LADDER

The Bulls have continued their impressive second half to the season with a strong performance on Friday night that saw them roll Saints by 46 points 10.14 (74) to 4.4 (28).  The win along with Towns going down to Cable Beach the next day, has moved the team into 3rd spot on the WKFL Ladder.  The big bodies of the Bulls were too strong for the Saints as the boys dominated from the first bounce with only wayward kicking due to a strong breeze reducing the effectiveness of the opening quarter, Bulls kicking 5 goals 7 to Saints 0.0.  The second term saw Saints take advantage of the breeze to get their first couple on the board, but Bulls were able to score against the wind and maintain a healthy lead at half time and easily maintain ascendcy around the ground to run out comfortable winners.  Casey Zepnick never stopped working in the middle of the ground and his blocking, shepperding and overall strength over the ball made the midfielders job a lot easier, a point that was not missed by coach Tim Richter who awarded him BOG for the night.  Other awards went to; Luke Matthwes, Simon Appleby, Brendan Thomas and Tom Ellies.  <results> <ladder>   


9-07-12 ROUND 9 - BULLS SCORE A 63 POINT WIN OVER THE EMUS

The Broome Bulls have continued on from last weeks win over Towns to post a 63 point thumping of the Bidgydanga Emu's, giving them a vital percentage boost and sees them hold onto 4th spot on the table.  With Towns going down to Saints in the first game, the Bulls are now just two points behind them snapping at their heels, although with Looma on the same points and Saints just two points behind them both, every game from now on in is vital to holding onto a finals berth at the end of the year. <results> <ladder>


2-07-12 ROUND 8 - BULLS WIN THE SAM ELLIES SHIELD!!!!!

The Broome Bulls have shrugged off a 5 year hoo-doo and claimed the Sam Ellies Shield for the first time with a victory over arch rival Towns by 16 points on the weekend.  The win also saw the team climb back into 4th spot on the WKFL ladder after Saints went down to Derby in Derby.  Full report and pictures to follow... <results> <ladder>

25-06-12 WKFL TRIUMPH OVER NPFL

The WKFL combined side travelled to Port Hedland on the weekend to take on a combined North Pilbara side in the first league rep's game in more than 10 years with the WKFL winning 17.18 (120) to 8.5 (53).  6 Bulls players made the team - Tim Richter, Ben Saunders, Bernard Wearden, Dom Treacy and Rob Mcalpine and made a massive contribution to the outcome with Tim Richter named BOG, Ben and Bernard named in the best players, Dom kicking 2 goals from CHF and Jumbo keeping his man goalless at CHB.  Well done fellas!  <Full report>

18-06-12 ROUND 7 - LOSS TO CABLE BEACH

A slow start to the game cost the Bulls dearly with Cable Beach racking up 7 goals to nothing to head into the first change in complete control.  The boys finally got into gear after the quarter time break and matched Beach for the rest of the game, controlling the midfield and gaining possesion all over the ground.  But once again it was a case of too little too late and they ended going down by the first quarter margin of 7 goals.  <results> <ladder> 

11-06-12 ROUND 6 - BULLS GET THE WIN UNDER LIGHTS ON FRIDAY

The Bulls secured their 3rd win of the season and moved back into the top 4 with a 17 point win over a gallant Bombers outfit on Friday night.  Knowing they had to win to keep their season alive, the boys entered the game confident of knocking off a young and in-experienced Bombers side and put the first goal on the board and set the early pace opening up an early lead.  A king hit on ruckman Rod "Jumbo" McCalpine late in the first soured the game with the offending Bombers player red carded and sent from the field, but the action seemed to pump Bombers up and put our boys on the back foot with Bulls players constantly being second to the ball and letting Bombers control the ground contests.  A poor second quarter allowed Bombers to get within 7 points at the main break and questions were asked of the playing group and whether they wanted the win.  Their answer came in the third quarter as they started to win back the ascendency, the ball movement improved and contests were being won resulting in scoreboard pressure.  In the fourth the Bombers came out fired up again with the lead being reduced to 9 points at one stage, luckily though the boys were able to steady and hold them off to record the win. results <ladder>


25-05-12 ROUND 5 - DEPLETED BULLS GO DOWN TO DERBY

The Bulls went down to the Derby Tigers by 32 points on Saturday after 8 of their starting lineup pulled out of the game, including 4 on the morning of the game.  With only 1 player listed on the bench, some frantic phone calls were made and last minute players were asked to pull the boots on.  Full credit goes to the boys that made the effort, the boys were close at different times of the game, but once again lapses on concentration let the opposition in.  A third quarter fadeout saw the margin slip from a single kick to 6 goals going into the last quarter and even with the Bulls running the game out harder, they just couldnt peg it back. Standouts in the game were the efforts by our two youngest players on the field - Brent Gore had his best game for the Bulls with a 4 goal effort and some scintilatting moves in the forward 50 that would have made Cyril drop his jaw, and Shaun Sullivan was a ball magnet across half forward with even seasoned players remarking at the ease in which he slipped tackles to get clear of the pack and kick away. 

14-05-12 ROUND 4: BACK IN THE WINNERS CIRCLE!

After a lack lustre performace against Looma last week, the Broome Bulls have turned things around demolishing Bidgydanga by 66 points on the weekend.  After acknowledging during the week that they needed to start the games better, the Bulls put the first three goals on the board to take early control of the game.  Bidgy though had other ideas and through their trademark pace were able to peg back the score and tie it up at quarter time 4.1 a piece.  The second quarter saw both teams attempting to get ascendency in the game with the Bulls taking a slender lead into the main break but looking like they were ready to step it up a notch in the second half.  The boys started to gain the upper hand in the third but skill errors leading to costly turnovers were still hurting us early on, but as the quarter went along they tidied them up and we started to draw away from them on the scoreboard.  The fourth quarter saw the Bulls display the type of football that will win us a lot more games this year, a 4 goal blitz in the first 5 minutes put the result beyond doubt as kicks and handballs started to hit targets and the ball movement around the ground was too much for the tired and demoralised Emus outfit to contain, the Bulls running over the top of their opponents to get some much needed confidence ahead of some tough games in the next couple of weeks.  Rod "Jumbo" Mcalpine put in a dominat performance in the ruck and up forward to bag 5 majors, while Captain/Coach Tim "Dinga" Richter was a ball magnet and easily Best on Ground, taking home the pink footy from the game, probably a good Mother Day present considering his parents were up this week for a visit!  results ladder

07-05-12 ROUND 3: LOSS TO THE LOOMA EAGLES

In a tale of two halves, the Bulls have suffered their second loss of the season with a 36 point loss to the Looma Eagles on the weekend.  A flat and lack lustre Bulls outfit allowed Looma to control the game, leaving spare players all over the ground which resulted in Looma taking an 8 goal lead midway trhough the second term.  The second half saw them lift their intensity and their run & carry of the ball which saw the boys get to within 3 goals in the last quarter, before a few late goals to ex West Coast listed player Lewis Broome put the result out of touch.  Simon "Simmo" Peining put in a superb effort tagging Lyle Buck out of the game and can look forward to some more tagging roles in the future, while down back the loud mouth of the team Craig "Rowdy" Hall put in his best performance for the Bulls with a gutsy effort, copping a few big hits along the way.

30-04-12. ROUND2: BULLS GO DOWN IN NARROW LOSS TO TOWNS

The Bulls have gone down to arch rivals Towns by 9 points in round two of the WKFL season.  In a tight and hard contest all day, the Bulls had plenty of opportunity to win the game, but costly skills mistakes and lack of talking resulted in easy turnovers that cost them dearly.  The signs are there that the team has improved dramatically from last year and when they move the ball cleanly they look unstoppable, but from the sidelines it looks like they still havent quite gelled into the team they can be.  The mood after the game was sombre as all the players knew they had let slip a golden opportunity to go 2-0 and turn the tables on the old foe.  Hopefully it is the spark the boys need to kick-start their season.  results
