Katan­ning fall by 39

Great Southern Herald - - Sport - Laura Gru­bisa

De­spite a four-goal ef­fort from Mitchell Banks, Katan­ning lost by 39 points to Wick­epin 19.9 (123) to 13.6 (84) in the Up­per Great South­ern Foot­ball League on Satur­day.

Wick­epin ran away with the game with a nine-goal fi­nal term to take the four points, with Dy­lan Ross boot­ing six goals.

In other games, Nar­ro­gin Hawks were back on the win­ners’ list af­ter a 66-point vic­tory over Brook­ton/Pin­gelly, 22.17 (149) to 13.5 (83).

The Hawks’ league team had lost their past two matches against Wil­liams and Wick­epin and needed a win to keep in touch with Katan­ning and Bod­ding­ton at the top of the lad­der. It was a high-scor­ing game from the out­set with Nar­ro­gin kick­ing six goals and Brook­ton kick­ing five in the first quar­ter.

Nar­ro­gin’s dom­i­nance was clear in the se­cond half as they raced out to a 37-point lead at the fi­nal break, but it was their fourth quar­ter per­for­mance that stood out.

The Hawks kicked seven goals to Brook­ton’s three and fin­ished with a much-needed win.

Bod­ding­ton had an easy 91point win over Wa­gin, 17.19 (121) to 4.6 (30) and Wil­liams had a 74-point win over Kuk­erin/Dum­b­leyung, 19.13 (127) to 6.17 (53).

Bod­ding­ton are now two games clear at the top of the league lad­der, with Katan­ning beat­ing Nar­ro­gin to se­cond place with a high per­cent­age.

A clear se­cond and third place will be de­ter­mined this week­end as Katan­ning and Nar­ro­gin meet at Quar­ter­maine Oval.
