Community Clubs July 20

Another great turn out from the Box Hill boys at community club’s level, with a few big wins and a couple of clashes which saw our guys go head-to-head. 

The Eastern Football Netball League Premier Division Seniors saw Lachlan Wynd and Jake Arundell with the Rowville Hawks suffer just their second loss of the season so far to Doncaster East. It was a narrow six-point loss, 10.13 (73) to 10.7 (67). Despite the loss, our Box Hill boys both managed to impact the scoreboard, with Wynd kicking two goals and Arundell one. 

Round 13 of the EFN Premier Division Seniors saw Mason Hawkins and James O’Connor with the Vermont Eagles, taking on Campbell Tweedie and the Doncaster Sharks. The scoreline reads as if it was an exciting encounter; the Eagles led at quarter time, the Sharks ahead at the half, Eagles in front again come three-quarter time, before the Sharks finished on top by seven points – 8.8 (56) to 6.13 (49).

Tweedie was best on for the Sharks, playing strong again off half-back and launched a 65-metre torpedo. While for the Eagles, Hawko was the second-best player after another pivotal performance in the ruck, and O’Connor managed a goal. 

In the EFNL First Division Seniors, Max Hall and Montrose were victorious over Beaconsfield. Despite some inaccuracy in front of goal from the Demons, the final score was 13.24 (102) to 10.6 (66). Hall managed a goal in the clash and was awarded second best for the Demons. 

Another Box Hill face-off came in the ENFL First Division Seniors with Cayden Maki and Mooroolbark versus Sahaf Ali and East Ringwood. Ali and the Roos handed the Mustangs and Maki their first loss of the season, to take top spot on the ladder. It was a point the difference at quarter-time in Mooroolbark’s favour, before East Ringwood took the lead and maintained it to finish 17.11 (113) to 14.11 (95). 

Will Garner played in the EFNL Premier Division Reserves, lining up with Blackburn. The Panthers managed an 80-point win over North Ringwood, 15.10 (100) to 3.2 (20). Garner booted three goals for Blackburn in their victory on Saturday. 

Traralgon again had both Luis D’Angelo and David Brinker-Ritchie in their midst for Round 14 in the Gippsland League. It was a good win for the Maroons, finishing ahead by 81 points, 17.19 (121) to 6.4 (40). D’Angelo finished third best afield for Traralgon after another consistent performance, playing as an inside mid. 

Will Sexton took to the field with Yarrawonga in the Ovens and Murray League. Sexton and Yarrawonga got the win over the Wangaratta Rovers, 14.11 (95) to 7.7 (49). 

Charlie Beasley again lined up with Old Trinity in the Victorian Amateur Football Association, Premier Men’s competition. The Grammarians had the early lead, ahead by 13 points at the game’s first break. From there, their opposition in the Old Melburnians took control of the game to run our winners by 50-points, 10.14 (74) to 2.12 (24). Beasley was best on ground for his side for his consistent efforts out of defence, keeping his opponent to one possession. 

Also in the Gippsland League, Jack Hume and Leongatha took a five-point win over Morwell. Morwell were narrowly ahead by three points at quarter time, but the Parrots kicked into gear and 

Max Walton lined up with Phillip Island in the West Gippsland Football Netball Competition. The Bulldogs were just shy of the lead at quarter time but were six points clear come the half time siren. They held strong in the second half and brought home the win, 9.13 (67) to 8.6 (54). 

Flynn Lakey had an impressive day out with the Gisborne Bulldogs in the Bendigo Football Netball League on Saturday afternoon. He and the Bulldogs took a 172-point win over Maryborough, 26.24 (180) to 1.2 (8). Playing out of the centre, Lakey was named best on ground for his side in the huge victory. 

In the Ballarat Football Netball League, Jayden Eales played with the Sunbury Lions against Darley for Round 13. The Lions were in the lead at half time 24-15, but unfortunately let it slip to trail by 12 at the final siren, 6.12 (48) to 4.12 (36).
