Hawks on the brink of finals appearance
Round 16 of the SWFL kicked off on Saturday, with sides either realising or ending their dreams of playing finals football in 2018.
One team who have appeared to stamp their ticket in the top five are Augusta-Margaret River, who slickly defeated Busselton 13.11 (89) to 5.9 (39) at Bovell Park and claimed the Busselton Toyota Cup in the process.
With their season on the line at half time, the visitors controlled the stoppages and limited the home side’s ability to play uninterrupted passages of free flowing football.
Jack Hick booted five goals for the Hawks, while Lincoln Adams was best afield for his side. For the Magpies, Jason Fish and Aidan Fisher battled hard.
While the Hawks can look forward to September, Harvey-Brunswick-Leschenault had their finals aspirations come to an end, after Carey Park cruised to a 47 point victory at Kelly Park.
The Lions, who needed to win and await other results to keep their hopes alive, were blown away in the first term with the Panthers eventually running out 14.10 (94) to 7.5 (47) victors.
In the remaining game on Saturday, Collie recorded back to back wins after seeing off the Harvey Bulls 12.18 (90) to 7.6 (48) in Harvey.
