Narrogin Hawks have opened their account in the 2022 Upper Great Southern Football League after a thrilling three-point win over last year’s grand finalists Williams in round two on Sunday. The game swung back and forth throughout as neither side led by more than four points at any change but the Hawks dug deep in a sensational final quarter to snatch their first win of the season. Scores were level at quarter time in Williams but the Hawks kicked three goals in the second to open up a slender four-point advantage, with midfielder Jordan Heil enjoying a strong first half. The Cats piled on the pressure in the third quarter booting five goals but the Hawks had four of their own, setting up a grandstand finish. The Hawks steamed home, snagging four of the last seven majors, to secure an impressive 13.6 (84) to 12.9 (81) victory. Heil, Jack Walsh, Travis Nicholas and William Graham were the multiple goalkickers for the winners. Tall Perrin Quartermaine, Michael Bradford, Tom Kilpatrick, Cade Turner-Reid and Graham joined Heil in the best players. Cats’ Damian Maiolo was the main avenue to goal for the home side, with five majors to his name. Cam Stedman, Edward Aitken, Teke Vernon, Harrison Dolan and Jack Webster were gallant in defeat. Boddington had a fantastic five-goal last quarter to run out 38-point winners over Wagin. The Eagles looked comfortable in the first term as they kicked four goals to the Bulldogs’ one. The Bulldogs responded strongly however with seven goals in the second term but the Eagles’ attack managed four majors to secure a seven-point half-time lead. The third quarter proved to be a stalemate but the Eagles erupted in the final term, kicking five goals to one as they claimed a 15.18 (108) to 11.9 (75) win. Harrison Ellis (seven goals) and Eric Moody (four goals) starred up front for the Eagles, while Talan Michael and Darcy Andrews were important contributors. The Bulldogs were best served by Luke Moore (three goals), Bronson Harry and Josh Kirk. Wickepin remain unbeaten, defeating Brookton-Pingelly by 21 points at Pingelly on Saturday. The Warriors were up by 20 points at half-time after a wayward Panthers side had kicked 1.10. The Panthers kicked six majors in the third term to get within three points but the Warriors held firm to run out victors, 11.13 (79) to 7.16 (58). Atem Deng booted four for the Warriors who were best served by Fraser Wittwer, Jack O’Sullivan, Callum Garcia, Jeffrey Farrell and Jaxon Ramsay. Brayden Fairhead, Liam Free, Joshua Hughes, Ira Jetta, Malachi Walley (two goals) and Callum Giles-Morton toiled hard for the home side.
