Charity Partner – 2019

Over the past few years, the Club has supported a number of different charities. This year, the Club selected White Ribbon, an organisation which has since ceased operating.

The Committee has decided instead to direct our support to a local charity and selected the Amanda Young Foundation.

The Amanda Young Foundation is a non-profit community organisation dedicated to reducing deaths in WA from meningococcal disease. The Foundation was formed in 1998 following the tragic death of Amanda Young from meningococcal septicaemia at the tender age of 18 years.

Thank you to Club sponsor LAC Laundry who have already made a contribution towards our donation.

Should Members wish to add to the Club’s donation, please transfer you donation to the Club account (BSB 633 000 Account 133 385 310) and we will include it.

Semi finals news

The 2019 football season ended for the Gosnells Hawks Football Club last Saturday when the
reserves team lost to Ocean Ridge by 13 points in the Perth Football League C1 reserves first semi
final.

This was a disappointing result to the large contingent of Gosnells supporters present who
expected a different result. Coach Steve Davis in his last game for the club was able to field a strong
team with several league players being available but the Hawks trailed Ocean Ridge by several goals
all day and never challenged at any stage of the game.
Final scores were Ocean Ridge 9.1 (55) Gosnells 6.6 (42).

RESULTS ROUND 17

The Gosnells Hawks Football Club’s league team found the top team Bassendean far superior last Saturday. In a game that was evenly contested to half time saw Bassendean add 10 goals in the second half to run out easy winners and appear premiership favourites with only one qualifying game left to play. Final scores were Bassendean 17.11 (113) Gosnells 7.8 (50). Josh Hall played well for the Hawks.

The reserve team’s chance at finals also took a hit with a loss to Bassendean and it now appears that the team will need to come from the elimination final to win the flag. There was little between the teams for much of the day but Bassendean prevailed at the final siren. Final scores were Bassendean 12.6 (78) Gosnells 9.10 (64). Best for Gosnells were Cameron Hayden, Ashley Pescod, Ryan Davies and Coree Thomson.

The thirds continue to play out the season strongly and went down to Quinn’s District by 23 points. Final scores were Quinn’s District 8.10 (58) Gosnells 5.5 (35). Best for the Hawks were Sam Carlino, Jeremy Hilbers, Kyle Preedy and Fraser Kickett.

The colt’s team is also competing strongly with next Saturday being the final game for the season. It is important to keep this young inexperienced team together for next year. Final scores were Bassendean 14.7 (91) Gosnells 8.7 (55). Michael Vidich, Riley Skewes, Delray Jones and Nicholas Drew all played well for the Hawks.

The Gosnells Women’s Hawks team lost its third consecutive game and dropped out of the finals to finish in fifth spot on the ladder. This was a commendable performance for a team that is in only in its second year. Final scores were Bayswater 9.2 (56) Gosnells 3.6(24).  Aleisha Lyfield, Kameesha Anderson, Elisha Bettenay and Tori Hogan were best players.

This Saturday the league, reserves and colt’s travel to Mills Park to play Kenwick.The thirds play  Ballajura at Gosnells Oval at 2.30 pm. Entrance to PFL games is free.
