AN EIGHT-goal haul to former Collingwood and Gold Coast star Josh Fraser has lifted Tatyoon to an elusive premiership.
The Hawks, who went down to Lismore-Derrinallum in last season’s Mininera and District decider, flexed their muscle to run out 19.7 (121) to 4.7 (31) winners over Wickliffe-Lake Bolac.
The 90-point thumping followed Tatyoon’s 70-point victory over the Magpies in the second semi-final.
Fraser, who is the head coach for Carlton affiliate Northern Blues, was aided by a strong showing from onballer Sean McDougall, who was best-on-ground with a host of disposals and a goal.
He was most potent in the second term, in which the Hawks piled on seven goals from eight scoring shots while Wickliffe-Lake Bolac managed just two.
Former Northern Blues high performance manager Matthew Pell also featured in the triumph, booting two goals and earning a nomination in the Hawks’ best players. Tatyoon’s dominance continued in the second half, with a further seven goals to two securing the win.
