Narrogin Observer - - Sport - ■ Michael Traill

Riffs have com­pleted their reg­u­lar sea­son on a high — fin­ish­ing on top of the UGSHA’s Men’s A-grade ta­ble and hand­ing War­riors a heavy de­feat.

Wade Ang­win starred for the Riffs in their 6-2 win over the sec­ond-placed War­riors, scor­ing three goals on Satur­day while also be­ing named man of the match.

Rhys Ang­win con­verted two goals and Jar­rod Lutz, one, for Riffs.

Brock Fran­cis and Grady Fran­cis were named best play­ers for the vic­tors.

Shaun Mckay and Jack Robin­son each con­verted for the War­riors, with McKay also col­lect­ing votes for his ef­forts dur­ing the match.

All Blacks did ex­actly what they needed to do to se­cure their place in this year’s fi­nals se­ries — record a draw against Olympics.

All Blacks fin­ished the sea­son three points ahead of Olympics, with the 3-3 draw enough to keep them fight­ing for an­other fort­night.

Sam Broad, Tris­tan Lock and Blake Page all scored for the All Blacks, while Olympics also had three in­di­vid­ual goal scor­ers — Jamie Ward, Blake War­bur­ton and Ben Woodruff.

Re­turn­ing from a suc­cess­ful Mas­ters World Cup cam­paign, All Black An­gus Arm­strong was best on ground, ahead of team­mate Liam Sweeny and Olympics’ Nathan Squibb.

War­riors have fin­ished top of the ta­ble in this year’s UGSHA Woman’s A-grade, de­feat­ing Wa­gin in a tight 2-1 match last Fri­day night.

Chloe Buzza and Is­abelle Kil­patrick both con­verted a goal each and col­lected votes. Shahni Chiswell was best on ground for Wa­gin and Sharleen Aitchi­son was their sole scorer.

Robins de­feated Wil­liams 2-0 on Satur­day, fin­ish­ing the sea­son in sec­ond place. Emma Fleay and Amy Oats found the net for Robins.

Fleay was named the best player on the ground.

Her team­mates Chloe Blight and Clair Cof­fey were next best.
