Harvey-Brunswick-Leschenault have continued to get their season back on track with a two-point victory over the Collie Eagles, making it 10 points in three games for the Lions after a horror start to SWFL 2022.

The Brunswick men struggled to convert in front of goals during Sunday’s clash, but led at every break as they went on to win 7.13 (55) to 8.5 (53).

The home side got the jump on the struggling Eagles — who went into the clash in last place with zero points from eight games — and headed into quarter time leading 2.4 (16) to 0.2 (2).

Collie hit the board early in the second term when Samuel Russell intercepted a kick in from HBL’s Zavier Williams before the Eagles kicked truly again to get the margin back to three points.

Zachariah Piper got one back for the Lions before Billy Boucher converted after the siren after being gifted a shot from straight in front off the back of a 50m penalty for running through the protected area to keep HBL in control.

Collie trailed by 15 points to start the third quarter, but two goals from recruit Reece Kelly and another from goalsneak Javan Mckenzie gave them their first lead of the day.

Brayden Prentice began to make an impact on the game, kicking a goal and setting up Jarrod Humphries to help the Lions lead by six points at the last change.

The Eagles fought hard for their first points of the season in the last term but it was not enough as they fell short.
