The weekend kicked off with the third and final Young Guns showdown at North Port Oval, with Box Hill well represented by Nathan Boucher, Geordie Nagle and Ned Reeves. While the Metro side went down by the narrowest of margins, Nagle performed well both on-ball and across the backline, Reeves battled valiantly to give his side first use in the ruck, and Boucher was again named amongst the best players, to cap a hat-trick of recognised individual performances across the series.

Back in the Eastern Football League, teammates became opponents when East Ringwood battled Norwood, with a Tom Maloney and Stuart Horner-led Norwood outfit taking home bragging rights over East Ringwood’s Box Hill contingent of Reece Groves, Tristan Davies, Leigh Osborne, Liam Jeffs and Tristan Tweedie. For the victors, Maloney featured among the best; while Groves was a multiple goal kicker for East Ringwood, and Davies and Osborne also hit the scoreboard.

South Croydon had a convincing win over Knox, courtesy of two goals apiece from Brayden Kilpatrick and Chris Jones, alongside performances which saw the duo also named among their side’s best. Unfortunately, it wasn’t all good news out of the clash, with Box Hill leader Nick Evans suffering a hairline fracture to the jaw.

Anthony Brolic returned to Rowville, slotting a major to help the Hawks to a four-goal victory over Doncaster; while Michael Knoll and Vermont fell to their second defeat in as many weeks, at the hands of Blackburn.

Billy Evans continued his stellar form with the Waverley Blues, contributing two goals and a performance which landed him amongst the best, as his side stormed to a huge 110-point win over Chirnside Park. A similar margin stood between Doncaster East and Mulgrave, with James Locke contributing a goal to Doncaster East’s 106-point victory.

In the Victorian Amateur Football Association, Sam Parsons and the Collegians fell just over a kick short of St. Kevin’s; while conversely, Lachlan Walker and Harrison Burt drove De La Salle to a 47-point triumph over Old Melburnians.

Liam Mackie’s best afield performance led Old Carey to a comfortable defeat of Caulfield Grammarians; while over on the Mornington Peninsula, Ryan McGannon’s Mt. Eliza outfit also got over the line against The Pines.

In the Northern Football League, Jesse Cucinotta and his Heidelberg teammates had a day to forget against Macleod; while it was a very different story when Billy Murphy debuted for Greensborough. Murphy made an immediate impact, his best on ground performance comprising of a leading four goals and countless score assists, to set up a 21-point victory and potential finals berth for his side.
