Community Wrap Up

As the VFL got back into the swing, so did our Box Hill Hawks community clubs. The break came at the perfect time for some, with certain sides afforded the opportunity to re-group and get their seasons back on track.

In the EFL Premier Division, Mihaele Zalac’s Doncaster recorded back-to-back wins for the first time in 2021, with inaccurate kicking somewhat saving the Sharks in their 7-point victory over the top four rivals in Norwood.

Elsewhere, Chayce Black was named among Rowville’s best players as they got their first win in five rounds over North Ringwood.

Across town Adrian Kalcovski’s Vermont leapfrogged the top of the ladder South Croydon with a vital win.

Little separated the Dogs and Eagles through three quarters, before ‘AK’s’ side kicked away in the final term to take the four points and with it the competition lead.

Over in the EFL Division One league, Mooroolbark returned to the winners’ list, due in no small part to the efforts of wingman Cayden Maki. ‘Mack’ was named in the Barkers’ best in a 73-point victory which moved them into the top four.

James Blanck’s was named in Park Orchards best as the Orch continued on their merry way. They’ve dropped just one game in 2021 and returned to action with a 82-point demolition of Upper Ferntree Gully.

There was nothing between Beau Tennant’s Montrose and Bayswater at three-quarter-time, with Beau having contributed a goal to the Demons’ cause. Sadly, it wasn’t to be his or the team’s day, and the Roos bounded away in the last.

In the VAFA, Lachlan Walker and Riley Bowman’s St Kevin’s remain top of the ladder by virtue of their 38-point defeat of Old Melburnians.

For the first time this season the brothers Le Grice turned out for Old Brighton together, with Elliot joining Josh in the back six.

Unfortunately for Charlie Beasley, his Old Trinity couldn’t secure their first win for the season, though the younger Beasley gave a good account of himself in his side’s defeat to Caulfield.

Up the Hume Highway in the GVL, Jesse Cucinotta’s best performance of the season wasn’t enough for Shepparton United, who went down by 28-points to the top of the ladder Seymour. The result sees the Demons drop two spots on the ladder to 7th.
