Katanning Wanderers remain on top of the Upper Great Southern Football League ladder after recording a special 39-point victory against Wagin on Saturday. The round-10 fixture at Quartermaine Oval was named Pink For Piper Day, in honour of Laurence and Meagan Collard’s daughter Piper, and raised funds to help find a cure for neuroblastoma. Wanderers recorded their eighth win of the season, prevailing 11.8 (74) to 4.11 (35) over the Bulldogs. Playing for the first time in three weeks, with games cancelled because of COVID-19 restrictions, Wanderers burst out of the blocks and in an emotional beginning Collard kicked two early goals and was swamped by teammates. Codie Mills-Durack and Hayden Yarran quickly added two more to put Wanderers well on top in the first term. Wanderers’ defence, led by Liam Hansen and Ricky Marris, allowed few Bulldogs inside-50 entries and only one goal from Alex Michelon to leave his side 15 points down at the first break. The second quarter was forgettable, with little or no breeze and both defences on top, neither side was able to add a goal. The third quarter was easily the game’s most productive quarter with nine goals kicked, six of which came from the Wanderers. Michelon kicked his second for the Bulldogs to draw within 11 points. However, Wanderers ruckman Caleb Keley was dominating contests and James Laurino, Reece Nicholson and Declan Georgy gathered plenty of possessions to set up Hayden Yarran and Collard. Yarran kicked three of his five goals in the third stanza while Collard added two more as their side led by 29 points at the last break. Scoring opportunities dried up in the final term but Yarran slotted his fifth for the day to seal the result. Keley was outstanding in the ruck and around the ground for the Wanderers, Yarran and Collard combined for nine goals,while Georgy and Declan-Mills were strong contributors and Nicholson was impressive on a wing. The Bulldogs were well led by Kyle Hamersley, who marked strongly around the ground, Mark Allington was strong in defence, Michelon kicked two goals from limited opportunities and Jai Jeffery also had an impact. Williams remain in touch with the top two after prevailing 11.10 (76) to 6.10 (46) against the fourth-placed Kukerin-Dumbleyung in Williams. Seven goals each from Lloyd Padwick and Luke Kirk guided Brookton-Pingelly to a commanding 21.9 (135) to 10.10 (70) victory over Boddington in Pingelly. Meanwhile, Wickepin won their second game of the season after defeating Narrogin Hawks, 15.8 (98) to 6.9 (45) at home.
