Yanco-Wamoon has kept their slim finals hopes alive after a 52-14 win over Hay on Saturday night.

The game was close at the half-time interval, with the Hawks leading 22-14.

However, the Yanco side continued their momentum and were able to keep the Magpies quiet in the second half.

With one round remaining Yanco-Wamoon’s hope rely on West Wyalong losing to Waratahs and Leeton losing to Yenda due to their negative for and against.

They will also need to win their clash this weekend when they return home to Yanco Sportsground to take on Darlington Point-Coleambally. Yanco-Wamoon’s reserve grade side also had a good win, winning 52-0. 

The victory further cemented their position in second on the Group 20 ladder, where they remain equal on points with the Waratah Tigers, but behind on percentage. 

In the league tag, the Hawks went down fighting to the Magpies, losing 18-8 on the day in what was a tough battle. The under 16s and 18s both had wins.
