Lake Grace-Pingrup are in the box seat to secure a finals double chance after winning a pivotal contest against Newdegate in round eight of the Ongerup Football Association on Saturday. The two sides were level on points heading into the clash at Newdegate, but the visitors emerged with a comprehensive 61-point victory. A scintillating nine-goal first quarter set up the Bombers’ big victory, which also marked the return of young ball winner Mitch O’Neill, who has been playing for Scarborough in the Perth Football League but has transferred back to his junior club. He was named in the best players alongside recruit Corey Ward and Trivan Davey as the visitors made a statement, winning 19.7 (121) to 9.6 (60). Karl Fleay dominated up front with six majors while Jackson Callope and Mitchell Thornton chipped in with four goals. The win pushed the Bombers a game and percentage clear of the Lions in second place on the ladder. Young pair Tristan Ballard and Nelson Kent were terrific for the home side but they trailed by 46 points at quarter-time and didn’t recover. The Bombers kicked nine goals straight in the first quarter, and the Lions fought hard, but the damage had been done. Kane Bridger finished with four goals for the Lions and was well supported by Arron Russell (three goals). In the other league fixture, reigning premiers Gnowangerup stormed to a seventh straight win of the season after thrashing Jerramungup. The Bulldogs kicked seven goals in the first term at Jerramungup, and by half-time had 16 majors on the board, to open up a lead of 105 points. Spearhead Lewis Davis booted 10 goals in the 164-point romp as the Bulldogs extended the margin at every change. Scott Anderson, Cody Harris and Campbell Floyd were outstanding for the visitors in the emphatic result, 29.16 (190) to 4.2 (26). Tyler Caldwell and Liam Phillips were effective up forward with three majors each, while Anderson capped a terrific day with two goals of his own. The Eagles were best served by Darcy Webb, Wade Brown and Jayden Brooks, while Brendan Lee was the only multiple goal kicker.
