Community Clubs Around The Grounds Wrap Up

With a heavily AFL-listed Box Hill outfit doing battle with Frankston over the weekend, a bevy of talent instead donned their local guernseys to take to the field for their community clubs. In return was a mixed bag of results, but as is always a fixture, plenty of goals and best on ground performances to boast.

Stuart Horner, Tom Maloney and Nelson Lane lined up for Norwood; however solid contributions from all, and a performance by Lane which placed him amongst the best, wasn’t enough to get over the line against Blackburn, with the trio falling short by 27 points.

South Croydon welcomed back Anthony Brolic, Nick Evans and Brayden Kilpatrick, who helped their side to a 36-point victory over Rowville. Kilpatrick and Brolic both hit the scoreboard, with one and two goals respectively; while Kilpatrick also found himself among the best for the day.

East Ringwood were the next team to fall to the unbeaten run of Vermont, with goals from Liam Jeffs and Leigh Osborne, as well as sound assistance from Reece Groves and Tristan Davies, not enough to challenge the league leaders. Tristan Tweedie also added his name to the list of best players for East Ringwood, an outcome which is becoming a consistent feature from week to week.

The results fell the same way in the reserves, with Michael Knoll putting in a best on ground performance to send Vermont to a healthy ten-goal win.

James Locke was judged best afield, but fell agonising short when Doncaster East went down to Mitcham by a single goal; while Billy Evans couldn’t get the Waverley Blues over the line against The Basin, in spite of a best on ground display.

In the Victorian Amateur Football Association, a Nathan Boucher goal and offering from Sam Parsons which had him amongst the best, helped the Collegians to a comfortable victory over St. Bedes; while Ned Reeves and his St. Kevin’s side were also on the winner’s list, taking the four points over Old Xaverians.

Another one-goal game played out between De La Salle and Old Trinity, with De La Salle eventually going down by the slightest of margins, in spite of Lachlan Walker and Geordie Nagle featuring amongst the best, and Harrison Burt playing an important role.

Liam Mackie’s Carey side were unable to get over the line, despite his name also being showcased with the best.

From the North to the Mornington Peninsula, Jesse Cucinotta contributed a goal to his Heidelberg side’s 23-point win over West Preston-Lakeside; while Ryan McGannon put in another solid performance, again among the best for Mt. Eliza, in their nail-biting two-point defeat of Frankston.
