Kyle Collard played his 100th club game for the Bulldogs in a day to remember, with Kelmscott winning comfortably by 108 points.

Kyle even snuck down forward and got himself on the scoreboard with a goal in the second quarter.

During the first half, the Bulldogs were in total control. But that wasn’t reflected on the scoreboard with a few gettable goals missed.

The Bulldogs went into the halftime break just 25 points up.

In the third, the Bulldogs came out firing and got to business with a nine-goal quarter. Forwards Angus Yarran and Callum Collard were kicking goals from all parts of the ground.

Angus kicked the goal of the day with some beautiful evasive skills and a dribble from the pocket.

While Callum Collard ended up booting eight for the day.

The Bulldogs came into the match with a number of their League players missing, but a few young Colts boys got an opportunity and played the part very well.

Young Colt Dean Pankhurst showed why he deserves a spot in the team come finals with another brilliant game.

It was the best football the Bulldogs have played all year and things are really starting to fall into place at the right time of the year.

The Kelmscott Colts are back in winning form. But Saturday’s match came with a nail-biting final quarter as Baldivis crept back into the game.

Captain Rhegan Prosser kicked three goals, whilst teammate Tyson Hoare kicked two, and there was one each for Dean Pankhurst, Adrian Winmar, Lawrence Hansen, Taiawhio Morrison, Steven Lawrence and Ben O’Shaughnessey.

It was a fantastic game between the Kelmscott Bulldogs and Mandurah Mustangs. Players from both teams went for the football from first bounce.

The two academy players – Mandurah’s ruckman Blair and Kelmscott’s Tim Tam – had quite the battle in the midfield, which was thrilling to see.

All the girls got around the game, and had their fair share. What a rocket Kelmscott’s Jen is with play in midfield, backline and forward. She’s definitely showing huge improvement.

It was just a shame that Mandurah ran out of midfield legs after halftime, but Kelmscott shone through with their true sportsmanship spirit.

Kelmscott’s Alex chasing the footy down just to get it to Mandurah’s Lukey and shepherding him all the way to the goals, was a total game highlight.

A close second to that was everyone helping a pair of struggling players have a go through centre, encouraging them to the football.

Keep working at it, Mandurah, and well done Kelmscott for a fantastic four quarters.
