September 5: Community Clubs Wrap -Up

An enthralling extra-time victory to Box Hill on the weekend saw the Hawks progress to the next round of finals action; and whilst there was plenty of excitement at North Port Oval, a number of Box Hill personnel were putting their best foot forward around the local grounds, to help their community clubs do the same.

In the Eastern Football League, Nick Evans hit the scoreboard to help South Croydon over the line against Doncaster, with the final margin standing at just one straight kick, to set up a semi-final showdown against Vermont next week.

Mackenzie Doreian was prolific for Blackburn, booting two goals to earn himself a spot amongst the best, as the Panthers accounted for Rowville to the tune of 38 points, to also progress through to the first division semi-finals.

James Locke successfully returned from injury as Doncaster East secured a grand final berth; while unfortunately, despite being named amongst the best for the day, Jordan Haynes and his Heathmont side’s finals campaign came to a close when they went down to Boronia by five goals.

In the Victorian Amateur Football Association, St. Kevin’s and the Collegians faced off, the latter emerging victorious to progress through to the grand final, with both Nathan Boucher and Sam Parsons named among the best; while Vincent Adduci and St. Kevin’s will have to forge their path via the second chance preliminary final.

Liam Mackie and Old Carey fell to St. Bernard’s and too, will have to secure their place through a double chance; while unfortunately, an elimination final defeat to Billy Murphy’s Greensborough sees their tilt at September fall short.

Finally, over on the Mornington Peninsula, Ryan McGannon’s Mt. Eliza outfit bounced back from defeat to triumph over Frankston by three goals and continue on to the preliminary final for their shot at the premiership.
