The Deanmill Hawks have shown they mean serious business this season after demolishing the Manjimup Tigers by over 11 goals, 17.11 (113) to 6.8 (44), in round two of the Lower South West Football League. The match was played at Deanmill’s home ground as the sun was setting and immediately the home side went to work trying to put distance between themselves and their opposition. After winning ruck after ruck, Deanmill had the run of the game out of the centre of the field and managed to score six goals in the opening term. However, the Tigers managed to stay in the tie and kicked three goals of their own before the first break. When the first siren sounded the scoreboard had the Hawks leading 6.3 (39) to 3.2 (20). It was in the second quarter that the gap between the two sides emerged as Deanmill played with an unbelievable intensity, punishing the Tigers mistakes and at times caging them into their own 50. Another six goals from the Hawks in the second term put a huge gap between the teams as the Manjimup Tigers only managed three points for the period. The scoreboard at half-time had the Hawks leading by 55 points over their opponents and looked to have the match all but sewn up. The pressure did not let up in the third passage of play as the midfield for Deanmill began walking through their Tiger opponents and were picking out leads rom the forwards at will. This misery was compounded for the Tigers as anytime they tried to move the ball forward with some intention, simple mistakes would break down the play and put them on the back foot. In the fourth quarter, with the tie already over, Deanmill continued to heap on the pressure and show they are serious contenders this year for the flag. The best on ground for the Hawks included Alby Decke, Kester Decke, Courtney East, Nicholas Gleeson, Brettney East while the Tigers best were Taj Russo, Jack Ioannou, Reece Edwards, Wesley Millar, Jozef Parkinson.
