In what was a top-of-the-table clash between minor premiers and the second-placed visitors, Beresfield’s Chris Archer nabbed a double to keep their undefeated record intact.
Archer scored twice for the hosts on old boys day while Danny Burt and Lloyd Simoes also found the back of the net during the round 17 fixture.
Hawks midfielder Ricky Franks was named man of the match after helping double their 2-1 advantage from half-time.
“We played well in the first half but they started playing long balls in the second half to catch up and we didn’t handle it well,” Beresfield coach Les True said.
“They got one back to be 3-2, but once we got the ball under control we were right.”
Beresfield are now 15 points clear of their nearest rival on the competition ladder with one round remaining, an away trip to Dudley on August 23.
The club will hold a working bee this weekend to complete fencing around a larger field at the Pasadena complex, which True hopes to show association officials shortly.
Despite finishing first Beresfield will not be promoted to the 11-team First Division competition next year unless invited by Northern.
