The Hawks took the first few minutes of the first half to find their footing against the Magpies.

The Hawks approached the match with caution and knew Haycould inflict heavy damage after they defeatedsecond-ranked Tullibigeal Lake Cargelligo last week.

“Momentum is everything in this game,” said Hawks co-coach Glenn Dumbrell.

“Once you get a bit of momentum going, it’s hard to stop.”

With their feet dug in, the only way the Hawks could move was forward.

The side clawed into an early lead and set the pace for the remainder of the first half, heading into the break with a 16-6 lead.

As the weather became an issue for Hay atthe start of the second half, Yanco-Wamoon continued their relentless attack.

The Hawks made easy work of the Magpies defence as they repeatedly punched holes through their line for try after try.

“We had to turn half chances into full chances,” Dumbrell said.

“As soon as someone cracked that line we had three or four blokes getting through.

“It really clicked for us today which was fantastic.”

The horn finally rang out and Hay had been dispatched.

Contributing to the win for the Hawks was halfback Jarrod Muller-Dobbe.

“He took a bit more control on that right edge,” said Dumbrell

“Hehelped push up with the blokes, so they were organised a little bit better.”

Having lost the previous two matches against West Wyalong Mallee Men and Waratahs Tigers, the Hawks were hungry for redemption.

Yanco-Wamoon have now set their sights on this week’slocal derby where they will go toe-to-toe with ladder-leader the Leeton Greens.

It will prove to be an exciting match at the No. 1 Oval with position and bragging rights on the line for both local teams.
