Jerramungup celebrated their premiership reunion at the weekend on Saturday, notching their first victory of the 2021 Ongerup Football Association season.

The Eagles had lost their first six games of the season before defeating Boxwood Hill in round nine at home on Saturday.

The reunion marked 10 years since the club’s 2011 premiership, celebrating all of the success the club enjoyed during the period when they won six flags in seven seasons from 2008-2014.

The Eagles finished comfortable 9.11 (65) to 5.8 (38) winners, led by Jayden Brooks with three goals, and Sean Wisewould and Brenden Lee with two.

Wade Brown was also impressive in the win.

Michael Swarbrick slotted two goals for the Bombers, who were best served by Brett Plane, Brett Crabtree and Harry Creagh.

Meanwhile, former Geelong-listed player and star forward Timm House’s bid to kick 100 goals received a significant boost after he slotted 11 majors for Gnowangerup against Lake Grace-Pingrup.

The Bulldogs led by 51 points at the main break but slammed home 12 goals to two in the second half to finish emphatic 20.19 (139) to 3.3 (21) winners.

House took his season tally to 71 with four games left to reach the century.

His 11-goal performance was the highlight of the 118-point victory.

James Culleton added three goals, and Scott Anderson and Nathan Willmott scored two each, while Campbell Floyd was also instrumental in the win.

The best for the Bombers were Luke Bairstow, Josh Bellve and Bailey McGlinn.
