Williams moved a game clear in second spot on the ladder after downing reigning premiers Boddington by 24 points in round five of the Upper Great Southern Football League in Boddington on Saturday.

A powerful second term set up the Cats’ fourth win of the season, as they booted seven goals to three.

The visitors trailed at half-time by two points but set up a match-winning 28-point lead at the last change after kicking five goals to one in the third quarter.

Both sides booted two goals in the fourth term, the Cats finishing 13.16 (96) to 9.16 (70) winners.

Former WAFL player Jackson Slater received the match ball in the Think Mental Health Round after booting two goals and collecting plenty of possessions across half-back for the Cats.

Stewart Walters kicked three goals in the win while Lewis Davis (two goals), Tom Vellios (two) and Max Paterson were also solid.

Alex Oliver battled hard all day along with Mitchell Salmeri, Brendan Erceg and Troy Egerton-Warburton, but it wasn’t enough to help the Eagles get over the line and they sit a game outside the top four with two rounds remaining.

The home side kicked four goals in the first term to open up a 26-point buffer before that was reduced in the second term as the Cougars kicked three goals to two.

A four-goal-to-one third term would see the Cougars take the lead by a single goal heading into the last change.

Both sides traded goals in the last term but the Cougars prevailed 11.14 (80) to 11.7 (73) and notched their first win of the season.
