The Pioneers, kicking with the wind in the second term were able to make a mark on the scoreboard with a goal through Alex Hywood and then Sam Heavyside. However Jydon Neagle was quick to reply for the Bushrangers. The Bushrangers went into the main break with a 6-goal lead.
The Pioneers kicked the first goal in the final term displaying intensity and urgency, which they lacked early on however the Bushrangers hefty first quarter margin enabled them to run out eventual winners.
