Around The Grounds: Community Club Wrap-Up

Another week in the local leagues saw a mixed bag of results, in which many Box Hill boys found themselves squaring up against team mates, in a battle for both four points and bragging rights.

In the Eastern Football League, Vermont’s undefeated run continued as Michael Knoll and his side took on Tom Maloney and his Norwood teammates, with the Eagles coming away comfortable victors.

For East Ringwood, in spite of three goals to Liam Jeffs, a performance from Tristan Tweedie which had him named as his side’s best, and ample support from Leigh Obsorne, Tristan Davies and Reece Groves, Balwyn couldn’t be matched.

South Croydon narrowly took the points over Blackburn, with Stuart Horner a solid performer for the victors. In consolation, Mackenzie Doreian was amongst the best for Blackburn, butthis wasn’t enough to get his team over the line, with just three points separating the two sides at the final siren.

James Locke continued his impressive comeback from injury, again amongst both the goals and best players, as his Doncaster East side accounted for Upper Ferntree Gully.

Jordan Haynes and Billy Evans faced off for Heathmont and Waverley respectively, with Heathmont getting the better of the Blues, despite Evans hitting the scoreboard.

Hampered by illness which kept him out of the senior side, Brayden Kilpatrick and the South Croydon reserves fell just shy of Blackburn.

In the Victorian Amateur Football Association, Ari Sakeson again hit the scoreboard, as Old Brighton defeated Old Xaverians by two goals.

St. Kevin’s were helped to victory over Old Trinity courtesy of three goals to Vincent Adduci and one to Ned Reeves; while Nathan Boucher and Sam Parsons were again on the winner’s list, as the Collegians came out on top against St. Bedes.

Lachlan Walker did all he could with two goals and a performance which placed him amongst the best for De La Salle, but even with support from Harrison Burt and Geordie Nagle, this simply wasn’t enough against the stronger University Blues.

Closing out the round, Liam Mackie contributed a goal in Old Carey’s defeat of Mazenod; and in the Mornington Peninsula Nepean Football League, Ryan McGannon and his Mt. Eliza side triumphed over Bonbeach.
