Chapman Valley continued their unbeaten start in the Great Northern Junior Football League under-14s last Friday afternoon, after recording a resounding victory over Towns at WA Country Builders Stadium.

The Royals were inspired by Xavier Wright, who booted four goals and played a sterling role in the win.

Other Royals who shone included Alex Solomon and Taylor DeLacy, while Jannie Pieterse tried hard for the Bulldogs.

On Sunday morning, second-placed Brigades continued their winning ways with a critical 51-point victory over Rovers at GBSC Sports Park.

The Hawks were led superbly by WA 15s State Schoolboys representative Jed Hagan, with Liam Dibben complementing his good work in attack.

Things were incredibly tight at St Pat’s, with the hosts outlasting Dongara by three points in a tense affair.

Luke Kanny, who has been in excellent form this season, put another top display for St Pat’s, who managed to subdue the plucky visitors in the final term.

In the remaining under-14s game, Railways were comprehensive victors over Northampton.

Both under-16s heavyweights Brigades and Chapman Valley show no signs of slowing their respective premiership pushes, with both sides recording big wins.
