MATCH FACTS: Sunbury smashes Brothers' record run

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

United Park Eagles has now been on the wrong side of the two biggest margins of the season.

The club fell 7-0 to Bingera last week, which is second only to its fifth-round 12-0 loss to Brothers Aston Villa, which remains (and most probably will be) the biggest loss this year. UPE boasts the worst defence in the league, having allowed 38 goals in its eight games (4.75 per game).

Bingera, meanwhile, has produced 38 goals in the same number of games.

The club has scored six or more goals in a game on four occasions, the most productive of any team.

Brothers Aston Villa had a four-game stretch of five or more goals but that was brought to a stunning halt last week.

Sunbury beat Brothers Aston Villa 3-0 at Maryborough Cricket Club to break the Bundaberg club's unbeaten run to the season.

The Blues were the only team to beat Brothers in the regular season last year, courtesy of a 3-1 win at Martens Oval on July 30.

The Blues' win last week was the first time Brothers was held scoreless in the regular season for the first time in 672 days.

The last time Brothers was held scoreless in the regular season was a 1-0 loss to Across The Waves on August 8, 2015.

United Warriors were the only team to hold Brothers scoreless last season, but that 1-0 win came in the preliminary final.

The Warriors' 2017 campaign has brought eight losses in as many games - they remain the Wide Bay League's only win-less team.

United has conceded at least two goals in every game so far, the worst being six courtesy of Bingera in round five.

Doon Villa's shock 3-2 win over KSS Jets continued an odd trend: the Magpies have collected points only from games against Fraser Coast clubs.

The Magpies have collected seven points from a possible nine against Fraser Coast clubs, but are yet to secure a point against Bundaberg teams.

Across The Waves still boasts the best defence in the competition, conceding just one goal per game.
