MATCH FACTS: 'Bundy Three' dominate defence

WELCOME to Match Facts.

Match Facts is a weekly column that dissects the numbers from the Wide Bay League: attacking and defensive milestones, trends, and other random stats.

It is nearly impossible to go a week without highlighting the top three teams' dominance of the men's competition.

Across The Waves, Brothers Aston Villa and Bingera have combined more than half of the competition's total goals.

The Bundaberg powerhouses have scored 94 goals between them, a staggering 56% of the nine clubs' attacking output combined.

That statistic takes on a whole new life when you consider their defensive efforts.

The three clubs have conceded eight, six and 12 goals respectively, a total of 26 in their combined 21 games. That's 1.23 goals per game, and accounts for 15.48% of the total goals conceded this season.

Brothers, who remain the only undefeated team in the competition, has scored 36 goals from its six games (six per game) to lead the attacking column.

The second-placed club will face Sunbury in Maryborough on Saturday night, a club that boasts a perfect record at home this season.

Sunbury won its only home game 6-1 (v United Park Eagles on May 27), and is about to start a run of seven home games in nine rounds (the first round will be replayed on July 1).

The Blues boast the best attack for any side outside the top four (22 goals), and is the only other club with a positive points differential.

United Warriors' clash with Bargara shapes as one of this weekend's tightest games.

The win-less Warriors are seven points behind sixth-placed Bargara on the ladder, but on-field results could mask form.

The Warriors boast a better attack - they have scored one more goal than their Bundaberg counterparts - but Bargara hold the edge in defence having conceded just three less goals than United.

Should Bingera and United Park Eagles play to form the end scoreline should be about 4-1 in Bingera's favour.

Bingera scores 4.4 goals per game and concede 1.7 goals per game, while UPE, on average score 1.4 and concede 4.4.
