Community Clubs (August 9)

There are just a few rounds left of the season and our Box Hill boys continue to represent well at Community Clubs level, as it gets to the business end. This week has it all, from a 200-plus point win (yes, you read that correctly) to a two-point win, goals and a few features in the best players. 

It was another strong performance from Mason Hawkins with Vermont in the Eastern Football Netball League Premier Division Seniors. While the Eagles went down by 37 points to South Croydon, 11.16 (82) to 7.3 (45) – Hawko was again named within the best players for his side in defeat, second best afield. 

Also in the ENFL, Campbell Tweedie and his Doncaster Sharks were defeated by North Ringwood in their Round 16 clash. It was all tied up at quarter time, just four points the difference at half time in North Ringwood’s favour before they ran away with it in the second half to win – 13.9 (87) to 6.15 (51). Tweedie was again a dominant performer, named second best on ground for the Sharks. 

The Rowville boys in Mitch Sruk and Jake Arundell, again lined up in the EFNL Premier Division Seniors and managed a narrow two-point win over Noble Park after trailing all game. The Hawks were down by 26 points at quarter time, 39 at the half, 19 at three-quarter time and with five goals to one in the final term, claimed the victory. And Arundell managed a goal. Rowville now sit two games clear atop the league ladder. 

Will Garner and the Blackburn Panthers went down by nine points to Berwick in the EFNL Premier Division Seniors – 5.8 (38) to 4.5 (29). 

Sahaf Ali lined up with East Ringwood in the EFNL First Division Seniors and recorded a mammoth win. Ali and the Roos bested Upper Ferntree Gully by 244 points, 40.19 (259) to 2.3 (15). Ali booted one of the Roos 40 goals for the game. East Ringwood now sit first on the league ladder due to the massive percentage boost. 

With Mooroolbark, Cayden Maki played in the EFNL First Division Seniors and was impressive once again. He and the Mustangs added another win to their list, but due to (the above) huge win from East Ringwood, are now second on the ladder. The win came over Croydon, 10.12 (72) to 9.6 (60), and Maki again featured in the best players, second for the ‘Stangs. 

James O’Connor also lined up with Vermont, but in the EFNL Premier Division Reserves. O’Connor and the Eagles got the win over South Croydon, 10.17 (77) to 4.6 (30). 

In the Ballarat Football Netball League, Jayden Eales and the Sunbury Lions managed a huge upset. The Lions took on Melton in their Round 16 clash, who had previously lost just one game and sit at the top of table. They took a 9.14 (68) to 8.5 (53) win over Melton. Eales played out of the ruck and played well all game, but particularly in the second half.
