Around The Grounds: Community Clubs Wrap-Up

Weather wreaked havoc in the local leagues over the weekend, as a number of Hawks lined up for their respective community clubs, adding solid contributions in trying conditions.

Round two in the Eastern Football League saw Michael Knoll put two goals on the board, to help Vermont to a comfortable ten-goal win over Montrose; while unfortunately, in spite of a strong effort and one goal contribution from Stuart Horner, the result went the wrong way for South Croydon in their hit out against Balwyn.

A five-man Box Hill contingent took the field for East Ringwood, comprising Tristan Davies, Reece Groves, Liam Jeffs, Leigh Osborne and Tristan Tweedie. However, three goals from Jeffs and a performance from Tweedie which put him amongst the best wasn’t quite enough, as they fell just two points shy of Norwood.

Jordan Haynes was named in the best for Heathmont, as they defeated South Belgrave by ten goals; while Mackenzie Doreian played his part for Blackburn’s reserves as they got across the line against Noble Park in a tight tussle.

Over in the Victorian Amateur Football Association, Ari Sakeson got on the board for Old Brighton, as they came out eight-point victors against St. Bedes.

Sam Parsons and Nathan Boucher, the latter contributing a goal, also recorded a win, as the Collegians won comfortably against the University Blues.

Geordie Nagle and Lachlan Walker helped De La Salle to a ten-point victory over Old Xaverians; while the reserves also proved too strong, in part courtesy of a performance by Harrison Burt, which put him amongst the best for the day.

Unfortunately, St. Kevins couldn’t overcome Old Melburnians, despite Ned Reeves being named in the best; while over on the Peninsula, Ryan McGannon’s Mt. Eliza outfit fell short against the Pines.
