If you're having trouble in AFL tipping competitions, you probably wouldn't fare much better in the WA Amateur Football League at the moment.

A Grade provided several upsets on Saturday and after two rounds only one team - University - is undefeated. Eight of the 10 teams have one win.

The students beat reigning premiers Wesley Curtin by 32 points in a low-scoring encounter, and two other teams who had big first-round victories - Mt Lawley and North Beach - suffered big losses in round two.

In a triumph for newly promoted Kalamunda, the Hills team beat perennial finalists North Beach by 33 points at the Ray Owen Reserve in Lesmurdie.

Former AFL and WAFL player Steven Armstrong booted four goals for Kalamunda, who are coached by his father Gary.

Swan Athletic recovered from a first-round loss to swamp Mt Lawley by 49 points at home. Adam McKinlay kicked his second bag of four goals for Mt Lawley.

Trinity Aquinas lost badly in round one but were boosted by the addition last Saturday of former Claremont forward David Crawford, who booted five goals.

Round 2 scores
Swan Athletic 14.13 (97) d Mt Lawley 6.12 (48)
Fremantle CBC 11.14 (80) d West Coast Cowan 7.10 (52)
Kalamunda 14.4 (88) d North Beach 8.7 (55)
Wesley Curtin 4.5 (29) lost to University 9.7 (61)
Whitford 4.6 (30) lost to Trinity Aquinas 12.10 (82)
