Accurate Hawks Take Down Sharks In Dunsborough

Augusta Margaret River have defeated Dunsborough at the Dunsborough Playing Fields on Sunday afternoon with a 46 point win, in the Belt Up Round of the SWFL.

The Hawks at one stage in the final term were 18.2.110 with some remarkably accurate kicking, moving the Hawks into sixth on the ladder at the end of round five.

Dunsborough kicked the highest losing score of the season, but a slow start cost the home side.

Augusta Margaret River kicked six first quarter goals to lead by 28 points at the quarter time break, before the Sharks started to regain some possession in the second quarter, with the margin still 28 points at the main break.

The Sharks showed what they are capable of, as they threw down the challenge to their southern neighbours, getting within nine points in the third term, but the accuracy of the Hawks was damaging, with players kicking goals from all points, leading by 19 points at three quarter time.

With the match almost in the balance, the Hawks dominated the final term in which there were ten goals kicked, seven to the Hawks, who had nine goal kickers, with Matt Bannister kicking four goals.

Kieran Yakas and Jake Rodgers player very good games for the Hawks, while Simon Moore, playing against his old side was amongst the Sharks best along with Luke Bakker and Cain Reynolds.

The Hawks will now play Collie in round six at Gloucester Park on Sunday, while Dunsborough will have the bye, before matches against Collie, Harvey Bulls and Busselton.
