A two-week ban for Jack Mahoney Medallist Jarrod Wight put a sour note on Apollo Bay’s win against Irrewarra-Beeac.
Hawks coach Brent Macleod confirmed officials had cited Wight for an incident in the Hawks’ 12.14 (86) to 6.9 (45) win against the Bombers.
Wight will miss this weekend’s crucial clash between the fifth-placed Hawks and sixth-placed Simpson, and the following week against Colac Imperials, seventh.
“It’s a must win for us this weekend,” Macleod said.
“We’re happy with the form we take in, we had a good win against Irrewarra and executed instructions really well,” he said.
