A six-goal haul from former Geelong utility Timm House guided his hometown Gnowangerup to a round one victory over a gallant Lake Grace-Pingrup in the Ongerup Football Association on Saturday.

Six goals to four in the second half helped the Bulldogs run out eventual winners, 10.5 (65) to 8.2 (50) as House booted half a dozen playing as a deep forward.
