Yeppoon’s eight-year winning streak comes to an end

One of the largest winning streaks in Australian sport has come to an end after a remarkable 128 matches.
The Yeppoon Swans have been dominating the AFL Capricornia Senior Men’s competition in recent years, winning eight straight Premierships, and remaining undefeated since mid-2015.
The Swans incredible winning streak came to an end on Saturday, when the Glenmore Bulls clipped their wings, winning by 19 points at home in an epic battle between the local rivals.
Not only was this a huge milestone for the Swans, but also for Glenmore.
The Bulls, who are currently celebrating their 50th Anniversary, were able to defeat Yeppoon during the second weekend of Sir Doug Nicholls Round – a special round for the club who has strong Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ties.
AFL Capricornia Competition Manager, Jourdan Novak, said the competition within the region was really starting to heat up.
“The quality of the competition in Capricornia has been fantastic this year with tight contests, including a draw, while the battle for the top four is really open,” he said.
“The Swans have had an incredible run, and to go down by only three goals for the first time in eight years is a huge credit to the club.
“The second half of the season is definitely going to be interesting and I’m sure the other teams will be seeing how they stack up against the best in the comp and I have no doubt the Swans will be hungry for a win after Saturday.”
The Swans next take on the fourth place Brothers Kangaroos at Kele Park this weekend while the Bulls will be looking for back-to-back wins against the Suns in Gladstone.
