It’s tight at the top of the North Midlands Football League as Three Springs and Coorow both continued their unbeaten streaks into round four.

Out at Morawa the Cinderella story of the season continued as the Bombers picked up their fourth straight win, this time over the Tigers 8.8 (56) to 4.12 (36).

Having spent the better part of four years in the wilderness, including just one win in their last two seasons, the Bombers are flying high and are likely to contest their first finals campaign since 2018.

Their win on the weekend wasn’t quite as dominant as their previous outings as they were locked in an arm wrestle early with both sides restricted to one goal in the opening quarter.

The Tigers could have had them under more pressure had they kicked straight with 2.6 in the first half, which allowed Three Springs to hit the lead with 3.4.

Missing Clayton Bruce-Cherry, Three Springs’ main target up forward was Gus Heberle who continued his good form with three goals as his team kicked away in the third quarter four goals to one.

By that time Morawa had wasted chances with another four behinds as they fell to a 20 point loss despite having an equal number of scoring shots.

Reece Hutton once again impressed for Three Springs along with Kayne Councillor, Rex Heberle, Bailey Mutter and Christopher Wall.

* The grand final rematch produced the same result as Coorow Latham swept aside a Carnamah side who look a shadow of their team from last year losing 10.18 (78) to 3.5 (23).

It was anyone’s game at half-time with the Magpies up by six points in a see-sawing opening half but the Roos would not kick another goal as the Pies kicked seven straight.

Blair Stone led the way with five goals while Connor McDonald, brother of Sydney Swans star Logan, impressed with two goals and his work around the ground on return from WAFL duties.

The Pies and Bombers are only separated by percentage setting up a blockbuster top-of-the-table clash next week.

* In Minginew the Bulldogs survived a late scare to pick up their second win 7.8 (50) to 6.6 (42) over Dongara.

The Bulldogs led the game from the outset and looked in total control - up by 24 points at three quarter time after keeping the Eagles scoreless.

Jack Greaves celebrated his 150th game with two goals as Brendan Cockman, Callum Blakey and Daniel Jones getting among the coaches votes once again.

But Donagra roared back in the fourth quarter as they kept Minginew scoreless but inaccuracy was their worst enemy only managing 2.4 despite their dominance to allow Bulldogs off the hook.

* Three Springs also kept their unbeaten run alive in the netball after easing past the Tigers 42-27.

Mingenew won their netball clash over Dongara 31-19 to give them their first win of the season.
