    About a dozen players from Hawkesdale’s breakthrough 1966 flag will be on hand for a premiership reunion.

    Dan Darmody, who coached Hawkesdale to the famous victory 50 years ago, can still clearly remember the elation after his sidecame back and thumped Penshurst –a team which had beaten them in the second semi-final two weeks earlier.

    “Everything fell into place for us,” he said.

    “Looking back, it was probably the determination (that set us up). I think, after being so good all the year and then losing the second semi-final and meeting Penshurst in the grand final, we were very determined to show we were the better side.”

    Meanwhile, the Eagles have retained the services of coach Simon O’Keefe for next season.

    He has lifted the Eagles from eighth last year to third spot on the ladder as it stands.

    They were second until last Saturday’s belting at the hands ladder leader Tatyoon.

    The Hawks smothered the Eagles early, holding them scoreless in the opening term, but a much more even second quarter saw Hawkesdale-Macarthur hanging in to trail by 19 at the main break.

    After half-time it was all Tatyoon, though, as the home side piled on 15 goals to four to blow the Eagles away with a 19.15 (129) to 6.8 (44) win.

    In the reserves, it was again the Hawks who took the points, defeating Hawkesdale-Macarthur 10.3 (63) to 5.6 (36).

    The Eagles trailed by just 11 points at the first change, but were held scoreless through the second term as Tatyoon pulled away to an unassailable 43-point lead.

    While the Eagles returned the favour in holding the Hawks scoreless in the third, the damage was already done.Brett Tanner was best on ground for the Eagles.

    The under 16.5 match played out as a thrilling draw, with the Hawks and Eagles locked on 4.6 (30) apiece at the close of play.Harrison Cozens and Kyle Smitten (one goal) put in strong efforts for Hawkesdale-Macarthur.

    The Eagles held onto fifth spot in the A grade netball despite losing to fourth-placed Tatyoon 45-34.

    Hawkesdale-Macarthur’sB grade side had better luck, winning 44-35 after a dominant 14-7 opening term.

    Tatyoon just overran the Eagles’ C grade side, winning 34-32 after trailing by three goals at the final change.

    In the junior netball, the 15 and under side had a nine-goal win, while the 17 and unders had a tough day, going down 39-10.
