Hawks eye dou­ble joy in de­ciders

Narrogin Observer - - Trades & Services - Michael Traill

The Nar­ro­gin Hawks will be well rep­re­sented for the 2018 UGSFL grand fi­nal day in Bod­ding­ton on Sun­day.

The Hawks’ C-grade and D-grade sides have qual­i­fied for their re­spec­tive sea­son de­ciders.

C-grade will take on Bod­ding­ton — the only side to have beaten them this sea­son in the six-team com­pe­ti­tion.

That was back in round 7, when Bod­ding­ton over­came Nar­ro­gin in a low-scor­ing wet-weather match — 4.4 (28) to 2.5 (17).

Since then, Nar­ro­gin have gone un­de­feated, in­clud­ing their con­vinc­ing 11.10 (76) to 7.6 (48) semi­fi­nal win over Bod­ding­ton.

Coach Jordan Heil said mak­ing the grand fi­nal was a credit to his side’s ef­fort all year.

“The boys are re­ally excited about the week­end to come,” he said.

“The mes­sage (to his play­ers) is take what we’ve shown we can do, we’ve been top of the lad­der the whole sea­son, we’ve shown we’re the best team.”

Not only has the Hawks’ C-grade side had an im­pres­sive sea­son, they have also been well rep­re­sented in the club’s se­nior sides.

Five play­ers have played for the Nar­ro­gin’s league side this year — Malachi Bolton, Phil Agnew, Dar­ryl An­der­son, Arthur Penny and Ethaneil Bolton.

“They’ve re­ally shown that they’re the top com­peti­tors in C-grade,” Heil said.

“It helps them play­ing at elite level. When they come back to C-grade, they bring elite skills into their game.” D-grade will face Katan­ning in their grand fi­nal af­ter beat­ing Wa­gin last Sun­day, 10.13 (73) to 5.1 (31).
