In reply the Hawks were dismissed for 90, with young Jayden McCartney again leading the bowling with 3-27.
Buangor has assured it will finish in the top two by beating Aradale. Aradale won the toss and elected to bat, but its top order crashed to be 6-37 before being rescued by Riley Wood, 56, Clinton Rodger, 17, and Cameron Ralph, 22, to finish on 8-135.
In reply Aradale was a big chance, having Buangor at one stage 6-63. But thanks to a 60-run partnership between Brayden Ferguson, 44, and Tyson Carr, 40, both unbeaten, Buangor was able to finish on 7-144 and clinch the win.
