Cats hold Eagles back as Tom Hawkins scores seven-hundredth goal – The Cattery – Unofficial Geelong Cats website

West Coast Eagles v Geelong Cats, AFL 2022 Round 14 Ben Jensen TOM HAWKINS scored his seven-hundredth AFL goal on Saturday afternoon in Perth as the Cats beat the basement Eagles by 18 points. Although the Cats led for most of the first half, they certainly didn’t dominate and the scores were tied at halftime as the Eagles finally put in a team-worthy effort. 1992 Premiership who watched. In the second half, the Cats pulled back somewhat with a five-to-two third quarter, the 18-point margin maintained by the final siren. Former cat Tim Kelly was a late change while Sam Menegola scored well in his first game of the season. So while it wasn’t quite the 100-point win some had predicted, it was the second time the Cats had won after the bye, and the form ahead of Tyson Stengle and Hawkins was entertaining. Next Saturday, the Cats travel to the MCG to face the Tigers in a home game with a 4:35 p.m. kickoff; remember the AFL’s ‘Kids Go Free’ month, visit: https://www.afl.com.au/kids-go-free.

About the Author

Ben Jensen

THE CATTERY began as a labor of love, and remained, by creator and lead contributor Ben Jensen in mid-season 2002. His goal was to create the best “unofficial” Geelong Football Club site on the net. Consultant by day and webmaster by night, he created his first website in 1996 while studying engineering and science at Deakin University in Geelong. After a very brief stint (by design!) creating web-based operations manuals for water installations, the Chartered Engineer quickly decided it was time he combined his love of Cats with his skills and that he “tries” to do what he hoped for. would be one of the best unofficial sites in Geelong. Ben doesn’t remember ever supporting the mighty Cats, let alone when he started pitching for the team wearing the blue and white hoops. Virtually all of Ben’s family supports Geelong; even cousins ​​in Sydney. Sadly, he married into a mixed family of Carlton and Essendon fans, but he retains first and last rights to any offspring. One of his earliest memories is of his father explaining the rules of the game by drawing a large oval football pitch and drawing the positions in each spot, with “JACKO” in front. The rest of those early memories revolve around Gary Ablett Senior, Billy Brownless (his very first favorite official player) and Garry ‘Buddha’ Hocking. Having lived elsewhere in Victoria and overseas, Ben has remained proud of his Geelong roots and never misses an opportunity to show his allegiance, and particularly enjoys strolling from the top of Collins Street on a Monday morning after a victory wearing a tie Geelong and maybe even a jacket and scarf on special occasions. I live again in Geelong after fifteen years of absence. Ben would love to hear your comments, suggestions and hopefully contributions to The Cattery.
