Hawks girls in must-win sce­nario

Augusta Margaret River Times - - Sport -

The Mar­garet River Hawks Youth Girls foot­ball team travel to Bun­bury to­mor­row to take on Bun­bury Gram­mar in a must-win elim­i­na­tion fi­nal.

Af­ter go­ing down to top-of-the-lad­der Bun­bury Bull­dogs by a mere 11 points last week­end, the Hawks girls must re­group and de­feat Gram­mar to qual­ify for this year’s grand fi­nal.

In what will be a re­play of last year’s nail­bit­ing fi­nal, the Hawks girls will be boosted by some re­turn­ing play­ers and a real sense of be­lief af­ter last week­end’s ef­forts.

Coach Tess Oliver said the play­ers were up to the chal­lenge.

“We’ve started play­ing our best footy at the right end of the sea­son,” she said.

“The girls are pumped and look­ing for­ward to rep­re­sent­ing the Hawks in another grand fi­nal this year.

“There is a lot of con­fi­dence in this group and we will give it ev­ery­thing against Gram­mar to book our spot.”

The game is at Bun­bury’s Kelly Park on Satur­day at 3pm and sup­port to cheer the Hawks as they strive to reach another grand fi­nal is wel­comed.
