Finals bring out best

BRIGHT PROSPECTS: The Mountain Men got off to a dominant start against Bonnie Doon, with Steve Nightingale (left) busting through packs and Rick Weimer (right) kicking goals.

BRIGHT’S impressive finals form continued with a win over Bonnie Doon on Sunday to book a preliminary final date with Milawa this Saturday.

Another team first display and eight goal haul from mercurial forward Ricky Weimer helped the Mountain Men claim victory by 28 points, the win once again set up in the opening quarter of play.

Bright came out firing, dominating the centre clearances and making the most of their forward opportunities and that would be the pattern of the day as the Bombers struggled in front of goal throughout.

Ryan Peace snapped the first goal of the match and followed it up with a second major after only a few minutes of play.

Weimer opened his account thanks to the work of the Mountain Men’s defensive end and with Bright players winning one on one contests all over the ground they were able to restrict the Bombers to just two points and create a 29 point quarter time lead.

The second quarter played out similarly with Bright dominating play while Bonnie Doon’s inaccuracy would prove costly as they were unable to cut the deficit by the main break.
