The Gosnells Hawks Football Club recorded three victories and suffered three defeats last week. The league team continued in a mid season slump by going down by 34 points to Willetton.

Best players for the Hawks were Scott Lewis, Jayden Woods, Robert Davis and Levi Gallagher.
The reserves continue to play exciting football recording a seventh straight victory with a win over Willetton last week.
