A five-goal haul from Jack Davis guided Boxwood Hill to a thrilling six-point victory over Lake Grace-Pingrup in round six of the Ongerup Football Association on Saturday. Boxwood’s second win of the year came in the special Big Freeze match that took place at Lake Grace, an initiative which is run each year to help raise money for motor neurone disease. Neither team led by more than 11 points at any change but Boxwood had their noses in front for the majority of the match. With scores level at the end of the first change, Boxwood booted four goals to Lake Grace-Pingrup’s three to open up a six-point buffer at half time. Boxwood managed to use the momentum to outscore Lake Grace-Pingrup three goals to one in the third term as the visitors went into the final quarter 11 points clear. Lake Grace-Pingrup rallied in a thrilling final term, booting a late fourth-quarter goal to get them within a goal but a single Boxwood major was enough to see them get over the line 11.7 (73) to 9.13 (67). Davis’ sparkling five goals was a major catalyst in the victory and he was well supported by star players Beau Vaux, Nicholas Bertola and Hayden Richter. Lake Grace-Pingrup were best served by Karl Fleay (five goals), Damian Trevenen, Reece Walton and Luke Bairstow. Meanwhile Gnowangerup surged well clear on the OFA ladder with a 79-point win over Newdegate at Gnowangerup on Saturday. Lewis Davis (six goals), Tyler Caldwell (three goals) and Jacob Hemley (two goals) provided the main avenues to goal for the home side. The goal kickers were well supported by trio Scott Anderson, Liam Phillips and Campbell Floyd in the 16.16 (112) to 5.3 (33) victory. Lions players Harvey Lynch, David Newman and Tristan Ballard all toiled hard for the losing side. The dominant win leaves the Bulldogs eight points clear of second-placed Lake Grace-Pingrup in what has been a dominant start to the premiers’ title defence.
