Fast start key to Warrior win

SUPPORT: Warrack Eagles coach Ryan McKenzie, pictured alongside teammate Zane Jess against Nhill, was in good form on Saturday. Picture: SAMANTHA CAMARRISTAWELL has a sizzling start to thank for its resounding victory against Warrack Eagles on Saturday, as the Warriors recorded their second-consecutive win to start the 2016 Wimmera Football League season.

The Warriors burst out of the blocks in the opening term, holding the Eagles goalless while booting five of their own to lead by 34 points at the main break.

While the visitors improved their output in the second term, things only got worse for the Eagles, as they conceded another eight goals before half-time, falling 60 points in arrears.

A four-goal-to-one third term in favour of the Warracknabeal side cut the margin to 41 at three-quarter-time, but the Eagles were again held goalless in the final term, as Stawell set up a comfortable 18.14 (122) to 8.9 (57) win.

Jack Musgrove again loomed dangerously for the Warriors with five goals, as Sam William, four, and Cam Kimber, three, joined the party.

Damien Joiner played well for the second-straight week, as did David Andrivon.

For the Eagles, new coach Ryan McKenzie led from the front, kicking four goals to be among the better players on his side.

Ruckman Matt Rix’s game was the best of all visiting players, while Ben Spicer and Bodie Malone were serviceable.

It is the second-straight week the Eagles have struggled to get going early in a match, after they conceded nine goals to Nhill in round one, and booting just one themselves.
