Steady drizzle throughout the first term evened the playing field with the Tigers struggling to execute their usual expansive game plan against the determined and energetic Harvey defenders.
The sides swapped behinds before Guy Piggott snapped the first major of the match midway through the first, Greg Sanders replying not long after to see Harvey trail by just one point at quarter time.
It was more of the same in the second quarter with both sides defending well to ensure that goals remained at a premium.
Classy Bulls recruit Toby McNamara put the home side in front with a running goal from just inside the 50 and Harvey enjoyed the lead until minutes before half time when Tiger Ashley Taylor capitalised on a rare lapse in effort from the Bulls defence to take an easy mark directly in front of goal.
