Community Wrap Up

There were no shortage of talking points to emerge from community club footy this past weekend, so let’s get into wrapping it up!

The EFL Premier Division played host to a mid-season eight pointer, as 2019 Grand Finalists Vermont and Blackburn squared off for the first time since the Eagles lifted the cup some 21-months ago.

Significantly for Box Hill watchers, the match pitted the Eagles’ Adrian Kalcovski against the Panthers’ Mackenzie Doreian.

Ultimately the clash lived up to its blockbuster-billing, with ‘AK’ named in the Eagles’ best as they outlasted a spirited Blackburn by just 3-points.

Mihaele Zalac’s Doncaster claimed bragging rights over local rivals Doncaster East. ‘Zal’ was among the Sharks’ best as the boys from Schramms recorded a third win on the trot to move to eighth place.

Sadly, Chayce Black’s efforts went unrewarded. He was named in Rowville’s best players in a 79-point loss to Balwyn.

In EFL Division one James Blanck’s Park Orchards continued their winning ways, humbling a hapless Lilydale to the tune of 123-points. ‘Blancky’ kicked a goal and was named one of the Orch’s best.

Not to be outdone, Cayden Maki kicked a goal and was named among Mooroolbark’s best players in their vital win over Bayswater.

Beau Tennant’s Montrose went to the quarter time break deadlocked at 0-0 with Mitcham! ‘Beauy’ would help his side find it’s rhythm thereafter, kicking a goal as his side ran out 30-point winners. Importantly, the win moves Montrose to fifth on the table and within touching distance of a finals berth.

Charlie Beasley’s Old Trinity were inspired by his new haircut, coming from behind at three quarter time to down Old Scotch for their first win of the 2021 season. In better news, ‘Beaser’ was named one of his team’s best on the day!

Lachlan Walker and Riley Bowman’s St. Kevin’s maintained top spot in the Premier grade on the back of a nine-goal win away to Collegians. The latter winning recognition as one of his side’s better players on the day.

Josh Le Grice’s Old Brighton were 25-point winners over Old Melburnians, cementing their spot in the top four.

In the Goulburn Valley Football League, Jesse Cucinotta’s Shepparton United fell to four-and-five on the season following defeat to Echuca.
