Around The Grounds: Community Clubs Wrap-Up

The weekend gone by saw The Eastern Football League claim bragging rights as the number one ranked competition in state community football; as their representative squad defeated the Geelong Football League in the 2018 WorkSafe AFL Victoria Community Championships at Etihad Stadium.

The inter league contest meant that a number of Box Hill listed personnel left their local guernsey unworn; however those who did take to the field saw close battles,  best on ground performances, unfamiliar defeat and new league leaders.

James Locke was named amongst the best as he led his side to a stirring come from behind victory, in which Doncaster East eventually triumphed over Park Orchards by 9 points, after trailing at each of the major breaks.

In the Victorian Amateur Football Association, Sam Parsons and the Collegians were dealt the first blow to their season campaign, falling to Old Xaverians by 27 points.

St Kevin’s seized the opportunity to claim top spot, accounting for St. Bede’s to remain the only side undefeated, in part due to a performance from Ned Reeves which saw him named among the best.

Both De La Salle outfits were victorious – the seniors helped to a nail-biting 2-point win over Old Scotch by a best afield performance from Geordie Nagle; while Harrison Burt and the reserves got the four points in more comfortable fashion, running out 41 point victors.

Closing the weekend, Liam Mackie hit the scoreboard as Carey got over the line against Beaumaris, closing out two goals the superior.
