The Eagles, Cougars, Mariners and Millers getting the job done, to keep their seasons on track. While at Beeliar, the Hawks also kept their season alive with a nail biting win over the already promoted Roosters. The Lions suffering another loss, and it was a big margin of 29 shots at that. The Rams look like joining the Spearwood boys in 2nd Division, unless they can pull off a minor miracle next week.

William Tepania 26 v Kevin McKay 16
Jim Ricci 25 v Travis Simpson 18
Mirko Musulin 12 v Craig Standley 23
Josip (joe) Marevic 17 v Robert Foy 24
An unbelievable game up at the home of the Roosters last Saturday, where the visiting Hawks flew in and took home 6 points, a good afternoons work.
Only one shot separated these 32 players at the finish of a very hard fought tussle.
Craig Standley and Rob Foy both having good wins over the strong Musulin and Marevic teams. This win certainly keep the top three hopes of the Hawks alive.

Mark Devenny 17 v Tony Krajancic 21
Bruce Edwards 12 v Peter Wachmer 26
John Lethlean 25 v Shaun McCormack 15
Robert Costello 16 v Barry Coote 23
7 points down at the home of the Rams, was a very good afternoons work for the visiting Mariners from up the coast. Wachmer, Gill, Bowden and Hocken got on top of Bruce Edwards by 14. Barry Coote and team beat the good rink of Costello by 7. Krajancic winning again, but only by 4 shots. John Lethlean giving young McCormack a touch up to grab what could be a valuable point for the 9th placed Rams. The Rams with some work to do now, the Mariners sneak quietly into 2nd spot on the ladder.
South Perth 84 (7) v Leeming 55 (1)
Denis Bandy 17 v James Newton 16
Michael McRae 13 v Noel Bennetts 19
Steve Kelly 28 v Ian Ashworth 13
Vincent Santostefano 26 v Karl Vandersluys 7
Wow, have the wheels fallen off at the Lions, as they got walloped by the Millers by a massive 29 shots. The Millers would be very happy to pick up 7 points to keep their top three chances alive. When the Vandersluys rink gets beaten by a massive 19 shots, you know that things are unraveling for the sleepy Lions. Vince Santostefano, with veteran Maxie Petrich, Jason Cook and John Percival did the damage here. Kelly and Bandy, successful also for the Millers. The unheralded rink skipped by Noel Bennett’s grabbing one point for the wounded Lions.
