Henwood Park defeated Wagga United 6-1 at the Showgroundson Sunday, beating a squad that upset Cootamundra last week with a 4-1 win.

“I just said to the boys at the start, ‘after last week we need to be more ruthless in front of goals, to not give away any chances,’” Doswell said.

“It’s not an ideal start to concede a goal in the first two minutes, but to bounce back and score four goals from four chances, I’m really proud of the boys.”

Henwood Park midfielder Matt Takats played at centre forward, pocketing four of the team’s six goals, contributing to each of the four goals scored by the Hawks in the first 20 minutes of the game.

Takats supported Sam Thompson and Matt Cain, who surged forward in attack.

“He did what Iwanted him to do, andhe got the reward for it,” Doswell said.

Henwood Park was up 4-1 at half time and sealed the deal with another two in the second half.

Once Wagga United players adjusted to the boggy conditions at the Showgrounds, they provided far more resistance.

Defender Jarrod Schiller rebuffed one attack after the next, and midfieldersDaniel Lawrence andMichael Bone worked to moved the ball from defence to attack.

However Henwood Park’s back line stuck to their players like cement.

Hawks back Nathan Bowman led by example, forcing Wagga United to shoot from outside the box, and giving them one touch to get it right.

Henwood Parkgoalkeeper Nathan ‘Tricky’Trinder wasn’t under nearly as much Wagga United’s keeper Andrew McCracken.

“They didn’t really got through us at all,”Doswell said.

“As Tricky said, they can shoot outside the 18 yard box all day, it doesn’t worry him.”

The former Wagga United playerstill did his fair share of the work, deflecting a sharp shot by left back Hayden Bennett, who ran through unnoticed in the last 15minutes of the game.

Andrew White also had a good stab at goals, deflected by Trinder, who also saved the second attempt by Ryan McKenzie.

As Tolland lost to Junee, and Henwood Park was just one point beneath Tolland before the catch-up games on Sunday, previously fourth-placedHenwood Park now sits in third spot on the Pascoe Cup ladder.

The loss does not bode well for Wagga United, on the cusp of the top four.

“Those teams around the four, we’re more than happy to send them back down the ladder,” Doswell said.

Meanwhile, Lake Albert defeated Young 10-1 at O’Connor Park on Sunday.
