Central Eyre have booked their place in the Mid West Football League grand final after defeating West Coast Hawks by seven points at Streaky Bay on Saturday.

An even first half saw the Hawks hold a slight edge, kicking five goals to three to lead by nine points at half time.

The Bulldogs took control in the third although accuracy played a factor, setting up 12 scoring shots with four goals.

The Hawks were kept to just one goal as Central Eyre had a 17 point lead at the final break.

The final quarter saw the Hawks come back strong but accuracy may have cost them as they scored three goals from nine scoring shots.

Central Eyre held firm, scoring two goals of their own to hold on for a narrow win.

Jesse Stringer top scored with four goals with Tasman Fitzgerald scoring two, while for Hawks Mark Dolling and Braden Holmes kicked two each.
