Brigades win by big margin

Justin FrisMidwest Times

Wet weather hit Geraldton for much of round 4 of the Great Northern Junior Football League.

In under-14s action, Brigades were inspired by a six-goal haul from Liam Dibben in their 60-point victory over Railways.

Other Hawks to shine on Friday night included Jed Hagan and Will Andersen, while Xander Lindberg battled hard for Railways.

In other fixtures, Riley Zimmermann booted seven for Dongara in their big win over Northampton, while Chapman Valley did enough in their close win over Rovers.

Railways continued their unbeaten run in the under-16s after their 46-point win over Brigades, while Chapman Valley ran riot against Rovers.
