Hawthorn are backing Jack Fitzpatrick to be a September surprise packet after the ruckman delivered a clutch goal in the final round of the AFL season.Fitzpatrick played 22 games in five seasons at Melbourne and looked set for the scrapheap until the Hawks offloaded pick No.94 to secure him in last years trade period.Concussion kept Fitzpatrick on the sidelines for much of this year but the 25-year-old eventually returned to the VFL.Fitzpatrick was then called up for a club debut against Collingwood following Jon Ceglars knee injury.He didnt disappoint - kicking the final goal of a one-point victory the Hawks needed to grab a top-four spot.It was some kind of goal too.Fitzpatrick collected the ball after a centre bounce, burst through the middle and unloaded from over 55 metres out.He stepped up in a pretty big moment so that shows a bit about him, Hawks midfielder Isaac Smith said.It was a massive moment. We needed a goal. Someone had to kick it and he took it upon himself.Hopefully he grows in confidence from that.Hes had a few injuries so he hasnt been able to deliver on ... some pretty good pre-season form. Its good now that hes fit and firing.Fitzpatrick supported Hawthorn as a child and already felt like he was proof that dreams could come true.Surreal I think is the feeling, he told the club website.Hopefully I can get a game (in week one of the finals) but if not Im sure whoever plays the role I did today will do a good job.Hawks coach Alastair Clarkson was full of praise for Fitzpatrick and Marc Pittonet, who rucked in the absence of Ceglar and Ben McEvoy.They came up against Brodie Grundy, who in the last six or eight weeks has been the best ruckman in the competition, Clarkson said.He played OK for them, Grundy.But given the task those two boys had and their inexperience, they did a fantastic job curbing the influence that he could have had on the game.If they continue to make a contribution like they did tonight theyve got a role to play (in finals).Clarkson said he was pretty certain McEvoy would return to face Geelong in week one of the finals.

Three came down to the fourth quarter while quarterbacks continued to shine in all four games; so important to the overall quality of the game.Hes been back with the Winnipeg Goldeyes for less than a month this season, but four-year Goldeye Chris Salamida has become the stopper of Winnipegs pitching rotation. Salamida allowed just two hits and posted his second complete-game shutout in as many starts Tuesday night, as the Goldeyes downed the St. Paul Saints 5-0 in Minnesota. While Winnipeg did its part to keep pace in the American Associations wild card race, the out-of-town scoreboard wasnt as kind. The wild card-leading Gary South Shore RailCats remain three games ahead of the Goldeyes after beating the Wichita Wingnuts 7-4 the first game of a doubleheader. The second game between Gary and Wichita is still going on. After Winnipeg grabbed a 1-0 lead in the second inning when Ray Sadler doubled in Ryan Scoma, Casey Haerther hit a two-run homer in the fourth inning. Kevin Moesquit doubled in Haerther in the seventh inning to increase Winnipegs lead to 4-00.dddddddddddd The Goldeyes added on with three runs in the top of the ninth inning. Luis Alen hit a solo home run for his third dinger of the year, while Moesquit scored on a wild pitch and Amos Ramon tallied on a Fehlandt Lentini fielders choice. Haerther, Sadler and Tyler Graham led Winnipeg with a pair of hits each. In going the distance, Salamida has improved to 5-0 in six starts and became the first Goldeyes pitcher since Roger Luque in 2004 to have at least two complete-game shutouts in a season. Salamida has gone 16 scoreless innings. "He wants to pitch in the big games and he thrives in that moment," Goldeyes pitching coach Jamie Vermilyea said. "Thats why we were so eager to get him back." The Goldeyes and Saints continue this four-game series Wednesday night. Matt Rusch will take to the hill for Winnipeg against St. Pauls Dylan Thomas.
