East Wagga Kooringal Round 6, Record Notes

What a great trip for the Club it was to Coleambally last weekend as we came home with five wins out of seven games. Coly are always tough at home and it was a real credit to all of our teams.

The first half of the under 17’s was a real arm wrestle with both teams going goal for goal to kick six each for the first half with the Hawks being down by two points at half time. However the half time message from Brocke certainly worked with the Hawks kicking six goals to nil in the second half to finish up winners by 40 points. The awards were as follows the Dakota Hair Fashion hair cut – Jesse Scott, McKelvie Welding Towel Adam Johnstone and the MJM Consulting Engineers award Jake Greenhalgh.

Reserve Grade boys bounced back from the loss to North Wagga and played good open football to win by 145 points. The Hawks used the ball well and after a slow start their domination got stronger the longer that the game went on. It was clear that the boys commitment to training is paying off and they will continue to improve as a team as the season progresses. Another pleasing as aspect was that we had nine goal scorers. The award winners were Hammond Ave $25 fuel voucher – Zac Robinson, Sportsmans Warehouse $20 voucher Mike Fitzpatrick and the MJM Engineering award Sam Hodges.

The First Grade started as we expected with the bigger Coly boys trying their best to assert their authority however the Hawks scrapped well and went into half time with a 13 point lead. However the Hawks gained the momentum in the third quarter and maintained a solid lead for the rest of the game. Again it was great team effort with Badge, Abo and the Scotties solid in in middle. Gepp and Noddy played well together up front and the backline was superb. The McDonalds best player awards went to $150 Nathan Scott, $100 Nick Baggio and $50 Ryan Campbell.

Today the Under 17s are playing Temora at Cootamundra and we wish them and the Coota Blues all the best. We welcome The Rock to Gumly and look forward to a top of the table clash.. GO THE MIGHTY HAWKIES……

Netball Notes

This week we travelled to Coleambally. The matches were all tough but played in good spirits, a credit to Coleambally who were strong all day.

C grade got off to a striking lead in which they continued to hold till the very end to claim their first win, the Mongoose money went to Abbey Plat and Coaches award went to Lauren Markham

B Grade started out a little slow in the first quarter and improved with every quarter - by the second half we were over our travels and ready to put up a fight for our game, going into last quarter we were 7 down and edged our way back to only go down by 2 - another 5 minutes and it could have been a different result! It was a hard fought out match and all of our team fought hard in the last half and it was our one percenters that gave is the lift needed to come back - Best players were Chloe Gestier in WD without her constant defensive pressure the game would not have been so close and Ruth Hensgen who was thrown from pillar to post around the court and adapted her game each and every quarter.

A Reserve had a tough game against coleambaly at their home ground on the weekend. The girls were moved around in different positions but took it in their stride and played well as a team defeating coleambaly 39 -33.Stand outs on the day were Marg Inglis and Lize Nobes

A grade had a difficult day going down to Coli. Tayla won the mongoose money players player award and Jess Skinner was awarded Tira Thai coaches award.

East Wagga Kooringal Round 5, Record Notes


Today the Hawks senior teams should be arriving at Coleambally all refreshed after having the bye last week. Our last game was against North Wagga at Gumly Oval on Anzac Day with all players representing our club proudly on such a special day for our Nation.

First game of the day was Reserve Grade at 1pm and it was the Saints who got out of the blocks early. Unfortunately our kicking let us down as we kicked 4 goals 9 for the game. Kyle North-Flanagan had a great game in the ruck and received the Sportsmans Warehouse award. Hodgie and Ditch Davey also played very well and it won’t be a surprise if we see them get a start in First Grade in the near future. Hodgie received the Caltex Hammond Ave Award and Daniel Davey the MJM Engineering award.

The First Grade got off to a flyer and really dominated their opponents for all four quarters. Overall it was a great team effort lead by the back line who applied strong pressure all day and gave the Hawks great drive into the forward line. Trent Garner and Jacob Tiernan were stand outs and Marc Geppert and Chris Jackson took some great marks and were solid in front of the goals kicking nine between them. The recipients of the McDonalds incentive awards were Trent Garner, Jacob Tiernan and Joe Scott.

The under 17’s played on Sunday and played really well with a number of players playing their first game of the season. Although they were beaten the boys played some very good footy. It’s a case of the more that they train and play together the more they’ll improve as a team. Tom Price received the Dakota Hair Fashion haircut, Nick Curran the McKelvie Welding Towel and Jackson Quade the MJM Engineering Solutions Award.

‘We look forward to a big day at Coleambally today and we’ll see you all at the Kooringal Hotel tonight for the Club Awards…… GO THE MIGHTY HAWKIES….

The A reserve girls had a tough game against north wagga and unfortunately we went down in the end. I am confident we will bounce back after some hard work at training. Stand outs for the day were Emma Inglis received the Mongoose Money for working tirelessly in the goal circle and Corinna Bax received the Corner Table by Alex and Michele award. She stood up as a leader and kept the girls morale up throughout the game

East Wagga Kooringal Round 2, Record Notes

It was great weather for football last weekend at Temora and a great way to start 2015 with wins in both First and Reserve Grade. Hawks supporters were pleased to see Nick Hull back and Jimmy Creasy also looked good in the brown and gold. The First Grade game was a real arm wrestle for the first three quarters with the Hawks being down by six points at three quarter time, but our boys broke the shackles in the last quarter scoring five goals to nil to finish as 23 point winners. Knoxy played well in the ruck and Gep was on song in front of goal kicking nine goals and captain Ben Absolum played well in the middle. However the awards went to Tex Gillard, Stephen Smith and Joe Scott.

The Reserve Grade boys got off to a solid start and finished the game off strongly to end the game as fifty point winners. It was a great team effort and picking the award winners would have been a real difficult task. In the in the end the Caltex Hammond Ave voucher went to Boris, Sam King the Sportsmans Warehouse award and Zac MacDonald received the MJM Consulting Engineers Award.

With several players unavailable it was a difficult start for the Under 17’s, however the boys played really well. The ball movement was impressive and we can look forward to the boys having a strong season. Award winners were Joel Hounsell – the Dakota hair cut, Adam Johnston the McKelvie Welding Towel and Cody Bramich received the MJM Consulting engineers award.

Today we welcome Barellan to Gumly Oval and congratulate the Two Blues in being successful on their application to join the FFL. We also look forward to seeing our Reserve Grade and A Reserve netball teams receive their 2014 Premiership Flags. We wish everyone an enjoyable day and go the mighty HAWKS ….

Netball Notes

First game of the season for C grade was a challenging one, especially for a new team, all players played well but unfortunately could not take home the win against a strong Temora side, all the ladies meshed well together especially our defence players. Lauren Miatke took home the mongoose money players player on the day for her outstanding effort in the game. The coach’s award went to Ash Carter

A tough and physical game was had by our B Grade side this week but was great to see the girls start coming together as a whole. We have a new team this year and we are looking forward to a competitive season. The mongoose money player’s player went to Clare Symons and coaches award went to Sidney Gillard.

The A reserve girls held onto their premiership win and stepped up in their first game of the year. They all played well as a team and this showed with the end result of beating a strong team by 8 goals. The mongoose money player’s player went to Jacinta Lennon and coaches award went to Marg Inglis who both were stand outs on the court.

A new A grade team hit the court this week with many high quality players representing EWK.
