Narrogin have suffered the heaviest defeat so far this year in the UGSFL after being handed a 90-point defeat in Boddington.

Harrison Ellis worked his way into huge 10-goal outing for the reigning premiers, as Boddington posted a 24.14 (158) to 10.8 (68) victory, largely off the back of a 10-goal-to-one second quarter.

The Hawks kept up with the Eagles during the first term, both sides had a fair share of both contested and uncontested possession, while Hawk defender Nathan Ugle quelled the influence of Ellis in Eagles' forward line.

However, Boddington midfielders Michael Humble and Matthew White dominated centre clearance throughout the second term, giving plenty supply to the Eagles forward line.

Boddington’s run and carry off the half-back line and through the midfield repelled a number of the Hawks’ advances going forward, resulting in several coast-to-coast to the Eagles.

The Eagles held a more than 10-goal lead going into half-time 14.6 (90) to 4.3 (27).

Narrogin began to control more possession in the third, but the Eagles extended their margin by the final break to 18.9 (117) — 6.7 (43), before kicking another six goals to Narrogin’s four in the final term. Andrew Moody was damaging in Boddington’s forward half, finishing with five goals while providing a constant option for Eagles midfielders.

Ugle and Ryan Fleay held firm in Narrogin’s back line under the constant barrage.

Ryan Gray, Darryl Anderson, Kyle Mead. Perrin Quartermaine and Nick Miller won the majority of Narrogin's possession throughout the match.
