Hawkesdale-Macarthur out of 2017 Mininera and District league finals race

HAWKESDALE-Macarthur coach Simon O’Keefe says the Eagles’ season is ‘done and dusted’ with two rounds to play.

The Eagles, who host Woorndoo-Mortlake on Saturday, sit seventh on the Mininera and District league ladder after falling to SMW Rovers by 20 points.

O’Keefe said it was frustrating they would miss finals.

“We’re done and dusted,” he said.

“It’s been a disappointing year really. We’ve had injuries at the wrong time.

“Everyone says it I guess, but we’ve had our top four players out every game.”

The former Hampden league Maskell Medallist said he wanted the Eagles to finish strongly.

“We want to enjoy the last two games,” he said.

O’Keefe is unsigned for the 2018 season and is unsure of where his playing future lies. 

His wife Sally is due to give birth to their third child in September.

“We’ll sit down and enjoy that and I will make a decision (about footy) then,” he said.

The Eagles’ A grade netball side is battling for a top-five spot.
