Victorious Mid West trio too good

Another relentless display has given West Coast a thumping 143-point Mid West football triumph over Wirrulla on Saturday.

The Hawks showed why they are the team to beat with the finals fast approaching in a 26-14 (170) to 4-3 (27) result.

Cody Colbung led the devastation with eight goals and had five from Joseph McInnis and four Cameron Montgomerie goals for support, while Simon Webb booted three for Wirrulla.

The Hawks made a fast start as they led by 21 points at quarter-time after putting away four goals to Wirrulla’s one, then flexed their muscles with 12 goals in the second term to a lone Bombers goal.

That put West Coast clear by 89 points at half-time before they added another four goals in the third term to soar past a margin of 100 points.

Wirrulla managed just a goal in each quarter as the league leaders finished the match with six further majors to complete the rout.

Second-placed Elliston also celebrated a huge win as they got the better of Central Eyre in an 18-15 (123) to 3-3 (21) demolition.

It took until the fourth quarter for the Bulldogs to register a goal as the Roosters built on a good start to win by 102 points.

They led by 34 at quarter-time and extended the gap to 66 points by the main break after kicking five goals in each quarter.

Another five goals to no Central Eyre score took the margin out to three figures by the end of the third term, with the Bulldogs finally getting on the board in the fourth quarter as both teams kicked three goals.

Otis Carter led the Elliston scoring with five goals and Joseph Burgoyne kicked four.

There was another big win as Western Districts defeated Wudinna by 95 points.

The Tigers ended a five-match losing run as they ran out with a 17-20 (122) to 4-3 (27) result to cement fifth place on the table.

Damon King-O’Loughlin led with four goals for the Tigers and Andrew Miller added three.

They got the jump on Wudinna in the first quarter with four goals to one, but could not completely capitalise on that dominance thanks to eight behinds.

It was much the same in the second term as Wudinna failed to score and Western Districts added three goals and eight behinds to take the lead out to 52 points.

Both teams kicked three goals in the third term, with seven of the best from the Tigers in the final quarter completing an easy win.

Wirrulla turned a three-point deficit at three-quarter time into a 23-point B grade win over West Coast as the match ended 11-12 (78) to 8-7 (55).

Western Districts got the better of Wudinna by 40 points in an 11-6 (72) to 4-8 (32) result, while Elliston defeated Central Eyre via forfeit.
