Coorow-Latham have squeaked through by a narrow margin to the North Midlands Football League grand final where they will face Mingenew, after they got up over Dongara on Saturday by two points.

The Magpies kicked 13.12 (90) to the Eagles’ 11.22 (88) as Eamon Gilbert and Matthew Burley starred with five and three goals respectively. After a stunning first quarter for the Magpies in which they kicked 28 points to Dongara’s five, they were still ahead by more than three goals at three-quarter-time.

Dongara came storming back in the final term to almost close the gap, but it wasn’t to be.

Tim Hayes, Jacob Comley and Gerard O’Sullivan completed the list of Magpies goal scorers.

Jack Stone toiled hard for the Eagles, kicking five goals, while Kristerfer Ryder kicked four and Sam Royce and Dylan Phillips scored the others.

Coorow-Latham will get a second crack at Mingenew next Saturday after the Bulldogs beat them in the second semifinal last Saturday, 13.14 (92) to 4.6 (30).

Carnamah-Perenjori will play Dongara in the league’s nippers grand final on Saturday. The Three Springs netball team, Mid West sports award winners in 2019, will play Morawa in the A-grade netball final.

Perenjori play Mingenew in the B-grade netball decider and Dongara play Carnamah in D-grade.

Coorow and Three Springs will play in the senior hockey grand final, while Morawa will play Coorow in the junior hockey decider. The league runs all three winter sports concurrently.
