Ongarello is believed to be the last player in the VFL/AFL to have scored a goal from a place kick, scoring two goals from the kicks late in Fitzroy's narrow loss to Geelong in 1955 at Brunswick Street Oval; Ongarello reportedly switched to the place kicks after missing several consecutive set shots from punt kicks in the game.
He appeared regularly on ABC television Australian rules football panels in Victoria in the 1960s and 1970s.
