A resurgent Donnybrook side has begun building a SWFL winning streak after knocking off the Harvey-Brunswick-Leschenault Lions by 20 points. Donnybrook hit the road once again to take on the Lions at Brunswick Oval on Sunday where they were quick to get themselves on the scoreboard with an early goal from Jack Wheeler kicking things off. Although the Lions began stepping it up in defence to try to respond, the Dons managed to break through with goals from Luke Dale, Hamish Hutton and Jeff Smith extending their lead. While both teams had players go airborne for marks, including an impressive one taken by Zac Trigwell, Donnybrook continued dominating during the opening quarter. Despite the Lions finally hitting the scoreboard with a late goal from Jarrod Humphries, the Dons led 4.3 (27) to 1.1 (7) at quarter time. The second term saw the Lions return to the field more determined than ever, with an early goal from Humphries opening the floodgates. Although the Dons looked to respond quickly, the Lions began to establish dominance across the back line and midfield, and successfully converting turnovers. Goals from Brendan Tingey and Ben Musitano saw the Lions close the gap as the Dons tried to fight back. However, further majors, including a goal inside the square from Shannon Sabourne saw the Lions take the lead 6.3 (39) to 4.4 (28) at half-time. Following the main break, a hungry Donnybrook side began redeeming themselves after being kept to just one behind for the second term. The Dons began shutting down the Lions at every opportunity and made a comeback with majors from Sean Lynch, Dion Parker and Smith. Although the Lions were attempting to stifle the Dons’ comeback attempt, they were kept scoreless while the Dons led by eight points at the final change. The final term saw both teams battle for territory early on, although the Dons managed to break through to extend their lead. Despite stand-out efforts from the likes of Reid Kinninmont, Musitano and Jordan Baggetta, the Lions were ultimately unable to capitalise on turnovers while the Dons extended their lead with goals from Shane Cristaldi and Lynch sealing the deal. At the final siren, the Dons walked away with a comprehensive 9.5 (59) to 6.3 (39) victory.
