EDITORIAL Last Wednesday night the NFNL held SENIOR REPRESENTATIVE NETBALL MATCHES our Women of the North event at the Heidelberg Golf Club.

Golf Australia Female Participation Manager, Chyloe Kurdas was our key note speaker. we also heard from VU Western Spurs President Karen Hayes and Hurstbridge Junior FC President, Paula Knight. A big thank you to all three ladies for assisting to make the night a great success. 150 women from within the NFNL attended the very successful night and this was a great way to recognise the contribution that women make to the NFNL by giving them a night out to network, and to get away from the rigours of club land. Thank you to everyone who attended.

COMMUNITY UMPIRE ROUND Last weekend the AFL conducted the Community Umpire Round. All community football leagues adopted strategies to recognise all umpires and the NFNL also embraced the round. Six NFNL umpires were given the opportunity to visit and experience AFL coaching and training. This saw many umpires thanking NFNL Director of Umpiring, Marty Ellis with true sincerity. AFL umpires also attended NFNL training and this proved to be very popular with an increase in numbers attending training. Many laughs, stories and information proved most valuable, and the genuine interest/involvement shown from the AFL umps was exceptional.

Next Friday night our very best under-19 and open netball players tackle the Eastern Football League (EFL) in a rematch from last year. Both games will be played at the Knox Regional Netball Centre in Ferntree Gully and games will commence at 7:00pm and 8.15pm respectively. Can our unbeaten run continue? No pressure, but I am sure we can conquer the best from the east in what should be two very exciting games of netball.

SENIOR REPRESENTATIVE FOOTBALL MATCHES Next Saturday May 19 the NFNL takes on the Mornington Peninsula Nepean Football League (MPNFL) in a rematch from two years ago. The NFNL is keen to atone for the defeat on that occasion, and once again the stakes are high for the winner to proceed to the 2019 number 1 V 2 match for the state title of the best community football league in Victoria. Three matches will take place at Preston City oval with the under-19s commencing at 10am, followed by the inaugural NFNL women’s team playing at 12pm, and the senior men start at 2pm. If you are looking to watch three quality games of football, come along and support the NFNL as we take on the best from the Mornington Peninsula in what will no doubt be three ripping games of football. Enjoy your weekend of NFNL footy or NNL netball. Peter McDougall Chief Executive Officer

NFNL News DEMONS’ BEST YET TO COME

by Jarryd Barca

Mernda coach Paul Derrick has warned his Heidelberg Golf Club Division 3 rivals of the improvement that is still to come from his side, despite a strong start to 2018. After winning just four matches for the entirety of its 2017 campaign, Mernda sits equal-first on the ladder – along with upcoming opponent St Mary’s – with a 4-1 record, which includes an 83-point smashing of Panton Hill in Round 1. Further victories against Laurimar, Heidelberg West and Lalor have solidified the Demons’ current ladder position and finals credentials, with Derrick telling NFNL.org.au the best is yet to come. “I believe our second half of the season will be better than our first half, so we put no limit on what we may achieve (this season),” he said. A life member at Mernda, Derrick returned to the club to take over the coaching reins in a bid to help propel the Demons back up the Division 3 ladder following a difficult 2017 campaign. He is looking to emulate the success he had while in charge of Essendon District Football league club Roxburgh Park – who he led to two grand finals in three seasons. Derrick said he wished to leave his beloved club “better than we found it on and off the field”. “Since getting the job, the first thing we did was to make sure we kept as much of the 2017 list as possible, while adding good footballers, but more importantly quality people, onto our list,” he said. “The aim was to bring back a bit of ownership onto the playing group. Our expectation from the beginning was to play finals (and) that is still our aim,” he added. Derrick believes improvement across this season is going to come naturally, with a plethora of youngsters already tasting senior experience. Nearly 40 players have been used in five games this season, and while it may hinder the club’s on-field continuity, Derrick believe it will only make the club stronger across the board. “We think we have a great bunch of players involved from under-19s to seniors, all working hard to improve their football,” Derrick said.

“So far we’ve used around 36-40 players in the seniors (during) the early rounds. Of that group possibly 10-15 have played less than six senior games, so we expect improvement as we get further into the season. “Pressure for spots ensures a competitive environment, so we think we’ll (be able to) maintain our effort thus far.” With finals the clear aim for the club since preseason, Derrick has been impressed with the level of commitment shown by his players to reach that target. He believes the Demons have the right mix of youth and experience to set “a launching pad for sustained success”, with all players on the same page and heading in the same direction the important factor in continuing their strong form. “The leadership and commitment from the president and committee has been fantastic. All are there for the love of the club and the effort they put in off the field resonates to on the field,” Derrick said. “We are coming from a fair way back, but we’re all heading in the right direction. The coaches and players have been fantastic with setting standards and committing to improve. “There’s no reason we can’t continue to get better and better after averaging 60-70 (players) throughout the pre-season – the more you put in, the more you get out.” Mernda is one of three sides in the third tier with a total aggregate score exceeding 400 after five rounds, while only South Morang – the only team to topple the Demons this season – have conceded fewer points per game. It’s potentially the strongest form Mernda has shown since finishing third in Division 2 in 2014, but the club is not getting ahead of itself, mindful of the team waiting to take them on this Saturday. “St Mary’s will be a great challenge for us, but we give ourselves every hope of getting the win,” Derrick said. “Obviously they’ve had the majority of their list together for a while now and look to be the measuring stick in a very even competition, so it will give us a great indication of where we are at and need to be. We’ll welcome the challenge. “We respect all opposition and know you need to bring your best every week to beat anyone.” WWW. NFNL. ORG. AU

NFNL News BRIDGES BREAK THROUGH

by Jarrad Gardner

Hurstbridge broke through for its first win of the

Meadows Greyhounds Division 1 season, with a 42-point win over Whittlesea in Round 4.

The Bridges fought off a Chris Horman-inspired comeback by the Eagles, kicking six of the final seven goals to run away 17.16 (118) to 10.16 (76) victors at Whittlesea Showgrounds. Entering the round as the only Division 1 team without a win, coach Trevor Little was impressed with his side’s attack on the ball after a week of soul searching. “We knew they were going to be hard to beat here and I respect them and rate them and Jim (Atkins) is a great coach, but we had to sort of beat them at their own game today which is our strength as well,” he said. “We’ve certainly done a bit of soul searching throughout the week and I think our intent today was where we want it to be and we were fortunate enough to finish off with a good win.” After kicking just four goals against Macleod in Round 3, Little praised his side’s efforts to find different avenues to goal. He also singled out key forward Cameron Cloke who put in a mountain of effort, despite finishing without a major. Mitch Burton led the way for the Bridges up front, booting five goals in his best match for the year, while Aidan Clarke, Nicholas Milne and Tom Grimes all booted two majors. “After Round 1 and Round 3 we were probably too Cloke conscious and fairness to Cameron today, he did a power work without getting on the scoreboard. “What he did was sacrifice his game because we thought that may occur, they may play another player through him.” Tom Simpson was named best on ground for the Bridges after putting in a dominant display in the midfield, as well as slotting a goal. Brayden Shaw and Burton were also named amongst the best for the winning side. For the Eagles, Horman was the only multiple goal scorer, kicking four goals, all in the last quarter. Xavier Dimasi picked up a heap of the ball in midfield and was the home side’s best, alongside Riley Dyson, Clancy Bland and youngster Mitchell Andrews – who 4

fought hard all day. Hurstbridge burst out of the blocks, with Ryan Jackson kicking the first goal of the match within a minute, before Burton followed with his first soon after. However, both sides were inaccurate in front of goals early, combing for just four goals from 16 scoring shots in the first term – with the Bridges kicking three of those to take a 10-point lead into quarter time. An even second quarter saw the sides trade goals, with the margin remaining at 10 points at the main break. Hurstbridge asserted its dominance in the third quarter with two early goals, before booting another three in a five-minute purple patch midway through the term to extend their lead to 32 points at the final change. Whittlesea threatened to make a comeback early in the final term after Horman booted three goals in the first five minutes to have the home crowd buzzing, while leaving the Hurstbridge coaching staff nervous. “When you haven’t won a game, you start to doubt yourself and doubt some of the systems you’ve got, so after those first three goals I got a little bit nervous,” Little said. “But we got back to the way we played all day and that was the run and carry of the footy, and I’m really pleased the guys finished off the way they did.” The Bridges settled to pile on six of the next seven goals to take home to victory. The win did come at a cost however with Cooper Perrin forced off the ground early in the second half and Tieren Barbera copping a knock midway through the final term, however Little is confident both will be fine. FINAL SCORE: Whittlesea 10.16 (76) def by Hurstbridge 17.16 (118)

NFNL News ROOS RETURN HOME IN STYLE

by Ben Pascuzzi

Macleod made it three wins on the trot and retained first place on the Meadows Greyhounds Division 1 ladder with a barnstorming 61-point win over Montmorency. The Magpies kicked the first two goals of the game, but the Roos went on to dominate the Round 4 clash at De Winton Park, finishing with a 14.20 (104) to 6.7 (43) win in their first home game of the season. Ned McKeown was phenomenal for the Roos in defence, spoiling or intercepting any ball the came his way, as well as providing fantastic ball use to his teammates with his accurate left boot. Fellow key defender Brad Leggett was also resolute. They were helped by Justin White, whose intercept ability was one of the major reasons behind Macleod’s constant rebound from defensive 50. Patrick Martin kicked six goals to add to his four-goal tally the week prior, while Hamish Paynter won plenty of the football. It was all about Montmorency early in the match, as Magpies booted the first two goals of the game in the opening five minutes to open an early 11-point advantage. The would be the visitors only two goals of the opening half. The game paused momentarily following a knee scare to Montmorency star forward Patrick Fitzgerald. The Magpies big man managed to walk from the field and eventually returned later in the term but was clearly hampered for the remainder of the afternoon. Macleod responded swiftly with a goal to Luke Joyce, before Ben Lennon, Hamish Paynter and Martin all got in on the party to give the Roos a handy 16-point buffer at the first break. At the quarter-time break Montmorency coach Ben Haynes implored his side to take the game on more often and to not allow their opponents too much room to attack from defence. However, Macleod dominated a scrappy second quarter, kicking the only three goals to extend its lead to 33 points. The Magpies had chances to score late in the term, but the Roos’ outstanding defence were able to apply enough pressure to deny the visitors a goal. Patrick Fitzgerald willed himself into the contest early in the third term and he kicked the Magpies’ drought-

breaking goal eight minutes after the resumption from the main break. The Magpies would go on to kick the next two goals of the match through James Brooker and debutant Bailey Eustance to bring the margin back to within three goals. However, Macleod gradually gained back control in general play and was able to put a halt to the Magpies’ momentum. When Justin White put through a goal moments before the three-quarter time siren, he extended the margin back out to 28 points. The Roos went right on with the job in the final term, outscoring the Magpies by six goals to one, which included a four-goal quarter from Martin. Patrick Fitzgerald finished the game with ice strapped to his right knee, however it was a better day for his teammate and name-sake Michael Fitz-gerald, who did a great job in defence to restrict Ben Lennon to just two majors. Macleod will be looking to continue its winning streak in Round 5 when it makes the trip to take on Northcote Park. Montmorency will be looking to rebound quickly when it travels to second-placed West Preston-Lakeside. FINAL SCORE: Macleod 14.20 (104) def Montmorency 6.7 (43) WWW. NFNL. ORG. AU

NFNL News BEARS RALLY TO BEAT FAST-FINISHING DEMONS

by Christopher Chrysostomou

Lower Plenty came out on top in a thrilling contest

against Diamond Creek at Montmorency Park South Oval in Round 4 of A Plus Labour Solutions Division 2. The Bears led for most of the day but were challenged by a fast-finishing Diamond Creek in the final term. The Demons trailed by 18 points at three quarter time but kicked five goals to two in the final term to hit the front with only minutes remaining. Just when it appeared the Demons would come away with an unlikely victory, the ball reached an unmarked Corey Sleep in the goal square, who put Lower Plenty back in front with a minute remaining. The 14.12 (96) to 13.15 (93) win continued the Bears unbeaten start to the season, while Diamond Creek slipped a win and percentage outside the top-two. Ben Paterson was the star up forward for Lower Plenty, kicking four majors, while Dale Nolan, Patrick Flynn and Matthew Duckworth had solid matches. For the Demons, Jess Cosaitis. Ryan Pingree and Jacob Booth all ended the game with three goals, while Ty Franks, Oliver Parks and Josh Lorey were named in the beaten side’s best. There was little space for players to lower their eyes in the opening term, which resulted in plenty of long kicks into the forward line. The style of play suited the Bears, who lined up with a tall forward line. Clint Monger got the score rolling, booting the first goal within two minutes of the opening bounce. Thomas Blake and Corey Sleep added two more for the Bears, before Jess Cosiatis showed his talent by converting a goal from the boundary to register the Demons’ first. The star of the opening term was Patrick Flynn, who was dominant in the ruck and pushed forward to be a threat in attack. Flynn showed his strength to push aside his opponent to kick the Bears fourth goal and give the home team a 17-point lead at quarter time. Diamond Creek showed signs of improvement in the second term and hit the scoreboard first through Pingree. The Demons had plenty of the play but could not capitalise and kicked only 2.4 for the term. Lower Plenty capitalised on the inaccuracy of Diamond Creek and increased its lead to 22 points at

half time. Lachlan Stagoll dribbled home the first goal of the third quarter, with the ball somehow evading the fingers of Diamond Creek defender Hugh Kavanagh. The Demons continued to apply pressure on Lower Plenty but couldn’t hit the scoreboard. They finally kicked a goal via Pingree, which proved to be the first of five majors for the term for the visitors. Paterson kicked the final two goals for Lower Plenty to give the home side an 18-point lead at the final break. Diamond Creek coach Craig Hayes urged his forwards to increase their tackling pressure and wanted his side to “get their jets on” when it came to a loose ball contest. Hayes plea to his players worked, as the Demons looked the hungrier side in the final term. After Paterson increased the Bears lead to over 20 points, Diamond Creek began to move the ball faster and find space around the ground. At times the Bears appeared too tall and too slow to stop the fastfinishing Demons. Against the run of play, Ciaran Porter kicked a magnificent goal from the boundary to give the Bears a steadying goal. But the major didn’t stop the Demons onslaught. Jacob Booth kicked two goals to drag Diamond Creek within two points, before Cosiatis kicked his third goal of the game to give the Demons the lead. The Bears attacked at all cost but couldn’t find a way past the solid Diamond Creek defence. It looked like the Demons would hold on to an unlikely victory, until a long kick into attack found its way to Sleep, who gave the Bears the victory.

NFNL News REDBACKS END BURRA WINNING STREAK

by Doug Long

Panton Hill scored an impressive 23-point win over St

Mary’s in the twilight game at A.E. Cracknell Reserve in Round 5 of Heidelberg Golf Club Division 3. The win moves Panton Hill into fourth place at the expense of Kilmore. St Mary’s managed to retain top spot, but now only on percentage from Mernda. Based on the 15.11 (101) to 10.18 (78) performance, the Redbacks look well placed to make an assault on the finals. In their first meeting since 2013, the Redbacks gained a decisive break late in the first term and withstood a spirited fightback to land the prize. The Redbacks’ tall targets proved to be effective – with Rhys Boyden booting five majors to move to the top of the goal-kicking ladder, and Matthew Byron kicking four. A feature of Panton Hill’s period of dominance was the intense pressure of its players upon their Burra opponents. Almost every St Mary’s possession was met with a smother or tackle early in the contest. “Our relentless pressure was awesome,” Panton Hill coach Steve Layt said. “Each week we are looking for improvement and we got it today.” Redback Nicholas Parks was the dominant ruckman on the field. Down back, Luke Ericson, Mitch Anderson and Brent Ryan were extremely effective. St Mary’s needed to respond after a poor first half, that saw it trail by 41 points, and performed much better after the main break – outscoring the home team seven goals to five. But the Burra were playing catch-up football and found themselves unable to erase the deficit. Panton Hill was often able to come up with a quick reply after a Burra goal. Layt would have been pleased that his team was able to absorb the pressure in the second half and hold on for a hard-fought win. The St Mary’s outfit failed to play the A.E. Cracknell Reserve as effectively as the home side. Many of the team would have played their first ever game on the ground. Inaccuracy didn’t help their cause. A slight breeze favoured the southern end of the ground and most 8

of the scoring was done there. However, St Mary’s managed a wasteful 3.13 kicking there in the second and fourth quarters. Youngster James Todd was the best midfielder for St Mary’s and was one of the side’s few four-quarter performers. Daniel Castagnini gave his team plenty of drive off half back, while Ben Mossuto was influential after the main break. Inclusion Nick Dean improved as the game unfolded – booting three goals in the second half. “They were a lot cleaner and a lot smarter with the footy than us,” St Mary’s coach Fabian Carelli said. “We didn’t adapt, missed opportunities and made hard work of things.” A positive for Carelli is that there is a plethora of players performing well in lower ranks – with the Burra’s reserves team undefeated and with a percentage of 614%. Panton Hill returns to Lalor Reserve to play Lalor in Round 5. This will be the first time the two teams that were both in Division 2 the previous year play each other in Division 3. Lalor won all three outings last year. St Mary’s will be looking to return to the winners’ list when it hosts Mernda in a top of the table clash at Whatmough Park. FINAL SCORE: Panton Hill 15.11 (101) def St Mary’s 10.18 (78)

NFNL News MERGED JUNIOR TEAMS UNITE Rivals have turned into teammates, with a host of

merged teams competing in the 2018 NFNL junior football competition. With record junior team numbers competing in the 2018 NFNL junior season, there are as many as six amalgamated teams – made up from players from two or more different clubs – competing in the competition. Across the off-season, a host of NFNL junior clubs have worked closely with neighbouring clubs to merge teams that were experiencing a shortage of players. This has ensured players can continue to play with their club, without needing to transfer to a different club within their age group. Among the merged teams competing in the 2018 season are Wallan/Kilmore (Under-18 Girls), Kilmore/ Wallan (Under-17 Boys), Rangers – a combination of Eltham, Yarrambat and Research (Under-17 Boys), Boro Bolts – a combination of Greensborough and Bundoora Park (Under-16 Girls), Green Searchers – a combination of Greensborough and Research (Under-14 Girls) and HJFC/YJFC – a combination of Hurstbridge and Yarrambat (Under-14 Girls) NFNL football operations manager Simon Devine was full of praise for the clubs who have cast aside rivalries and banded together to put additional teams on the field.

PAT CRONIN FOUNDATION DOCUMENTARY SCREENING The Pat Cronin Foundation invites the NFNL community to the Pat Cronin Foundation Documentary Screening on Monday June 4. Below is a message from the Pat Cronin Foundation: We have had a documentary made to tell the story about what happened to Pat, the devastation this has caused to us and all who knew Pat, the formation of the Pat Cronin Foundation and the work we intend to do. This very special film is now able to be shown publicly as the court case is over and we now want to share this. Pat played for 12 years in the NFNL playing for both Research Junior Football Club and Lower Plenty Football Club and the documentary will be screened as a part of the Pat Cronin Foundation Round. The documentary will be screened on Monday 4 June 2018. The venue is Village Cinemas Doncaster. Please arrive at 7:30pm with the film commencing at 8:00pm sharp. The film runs for just over 30 minutes and we

“It’s good to see clubs working together to ensure players are able to play a game because their club can’t facilitate a team independently,” Devine said. “These players register with their own club and are then permitted to the club hosting the team. This enables all clubs to retain their playing list at the end of the season in the hope of getting a full team up for the following year” “We hope this opens up opportunities for other struggling teams to do likewise in the future.” The merging off teams has seen strong connections built between new teammates both on and off the field. Recently three members of the Rangers under-17 merged team combined to lay a wreath on behalf of the Eltham Football Club at the Eltham/Montmorency RSL dawn service. The players selected to do so were Ben Smith (Eltham), Cooper James (Yarrambat) and Jesse Colenso (Research). All members of the Rangers attended the dawn service and were on hand to watch their new teammate lay the wreath. Rangers team manager Greg James said it had been great to see unity created within the team. “As we are a team comprising of three clubs Yarrambat, Eltham and Research that have come together to get 31 boys on the track this their final junior season,” James said.

will give you an update on the Pat Cronin Foundation after the film. You will be on your way home by 9:00pm. Tickets will be $20 each to help us to cover some of the cost of the documentary. We encourage all NFNL teams to purchase tickets and show your support. Tickets to be purchased prior to the evening via https://www.patcroninfoundation.org.au/event/patcronin-foundation-documentary-screening-northernfootball-netball-league/.

MEADOWS GREYHOUNDS DIVISION 1 - Preview QUARTER TIME With a quarter of the season already down, Round 5 is shaping as a vital one in Meadows Greyhounds Division 1 ahead of the representative break.

The top-four sides have opened a one-game buffer on the rest of the competition, ahead of a round that sees four of the current top-five sides face off against sides inside the bottom-five. The round’s only match between two top-five sides will be played at J.E. Moore Park where secondplaced West Preston-Lakeside hosts fifth-placed Montmorency. It shapes as an intriguing battle, with the Roosters one of the form sides of the competition throughout the opening month, while the Magpies have been hot and cold across the first four rounds – scoring two massive home wins, sandwiched between two poor losses on the road. West Preston-Lakeside heads into the game on the back of a 74-point win over Northcote Park at Bill Lawry Oval. The Roosters’ three wins this season have all been recorded on the road and have come at an average margin of 65 points. The Roosters were able to cover competition leading goal kicker Ahmed Saad’s absence last week and still managed to record 35 scoring shots in the dominant win. They raced to a 30-point lead at the first break, before stretching their advantage at every break. Sam Glover produced his best game for the club in a dominant showing across half-back, while skipper Nathan Valladares, Daniel Valeri and Liam McVeigh (four goals) all made prominent contributions. Montmorency was unable to continue its Round 3 form into last week’s match against Macleod, where it was humbled in a 61-point rout at De Winton Park. The Magpies kicked the opening two goals, but only managed another four after the five-minute mark of the first term.

by Samuel Zito

superb job to quell Macleod forward Ben Lennon, and another impressive effort by 19-year-old Sam Binion – who featured in the best players for the third time this year. North Heidelberg and Bundoora are both looking to arrest three-game losing streaks when they meet at Shelley Park. Despite both entering the game with 1-3 records, it is the reigning Division 2 premier who comes in with the better form. The Bulldogs were involved in one of the games of the season last week, where they succumbed to a nine-point defeat to Greensborough in front of a massive crowd at War Memorial Park. After the Boro made the early running, North was able to produce arguably its best football since returning to the top-flight to take a five-goal lead during the second quarter. They held an advantage until midway through the last term, before being outlasted by the home side. If the Bulldogs can maintain their best football for sustained periods, there is absolutely no doubt that they can push for a finals place in 2018. Last week’s performance was highlighted by another strong game by Michael Florance, who teamed up well with Jesse Tardio. Bundoora went into its match against Heidelberg severely undermanned but stuck within a kick of the Tigers midway through the last quarter, before the visitors kicked away for a 20-point triumph. It was a gallant effort without Matthew Dennis, Brent Marshall, Andrew Sturgess, Danny Younan, Ben Young and Josh Iacobaccio, however the result consigned the reigning premier to ninth place on the ladder. The Bulls will be counting down to the representative break more than any other team in the top-flight, in a bid to get injured players back on the park. However, should they drop this week’s game, they will have a long road back from 1-4.

With Ben Fennell and Tyrone Leonardis both on VFL duties, and Ben Walton sidelined by injury, the Magpies’ cause was further hampered by a knee injury sustained by Pat Fitzgerald in the opening quarter. While the star forward played the game out, he was clearly under duress.

Heidelberg and Hurstbridge will both be looking to extend winning form when they meet at Warringal Park. The Tigers sit in fourth place after threesuccessive wins, while the Bridges last week jumped off the bottom of the ladder following their first victory of the season.

Perhaps the only positive for the Magpies was a solid defensive display by Michael Fitz-gerald, who did a

MEADOWS GREYHOUNDS DIVISION 1 - Preview quarter, before breaking away for a 20 point-win. Given how close the Tigers’ results have been this season – the final result must have felt like a blowout. Big man Jake Thomas had his breakout game for his new side, finishing with five goals, while Chaz Sargeant added three majors to take his season’s tally to 10. Fielding a relatively inexperienced side, the Tigers were also well served by Matt Cecchin and Lachlan Wilson. Having won its past three games and with its three upcoming matches against sides currently placed inside the bottom-four, Heidelberg has a real chance to set up its 2018 campaign in the next month. Hurstbridge will head to Warringal Park somewhat rejuvenated after getting its season on track with a 42-point win at Whittlesea last week. The Bridges held a 32-point lead at three-quarter time after a five-goal to two third quarter, before staving off a spirited fightback by the home team to finish with six of the last seven goals. Mitch Burton returned to his best form – kicking majors goals after being kept goalless in his first two games this year. Tom Simpson and Brayden Shaw also had big impacts, while Mitch Hymus continued his good run of form. Northcote Park and Macleod meet in a rematch of last year’s second semi final. Macleod will enter as a warm favourite based on recent form and 2017 meetings between the sides – with the Roos winning all three encounters between the sides last year by an average margin of 88 points, including a 106-point drubbing in the second semi. Since losing to North Heidelberg in Round 1, last year’s runner-up has claimed three-successive wins by an aggregate total of 201 points – that’s despite fielding a largely different side to the one that played off in the grand final last September.

scoring shots for the day in near perfect conditions. Northcote Park entered its game against West Preston-Lakeside without Ash Close, Nick Carter, Joel Donaldson and Luke and James Svarc and battled all day. The writing was on the wall early, with the Roosters kicking 4.7 to 0.1 in the opening term. Paul Dirago and Bronik Davies tried their best to inspire their undermanned side, but it was to no avail, as the Cougars succumbed to their second home defeat of the season and relinquished the Mellerick/ McNiece Cup. Whittlesea travels for the first time this year when it makes the trip to War Memorial Park to take on Greensborough. The Eagles will be searching for a response after slipping to the bottom of the ladder following last week’s poor showing against the previously winless Hurstbridge. The 42-point loss was Whittlesea’s thirdconsecutive defeat at home. An unlikely win appeared momentarily on the cards when Chris Horman put through three goals early in the last term to pull his side back into the contest after a poor third quarter. However, the Eagles couldn’t maintain the fightback and kicked just one of the game’s final seven goals. Xavier Dimasi again showed his class, despite the final scoreline. He was joined in the Eagles best players by Riley Dyson, Luke Deards and youngsters Clancy Bland and Mitchell Andrews. Greensborough moved back inside the top-three after overcoming a gutsy North Heidelberg and will be favoured to improve its record to 4-1 ahead of the break for interleague football next weekend. Reigning best and fairest winner Jack Johnston was once again exceptional across defence in the win over the Bulldogs and would likely be leading the club championship count after four rounds.

Last week’s win over Montmorency was built on the back of relentless pressure, with the Roos’ midfielders and defenders not giving their opponents any time with ball in hand. In the attacking half, Patrick Martin again shone and finished with six majors – making it 10 in two weeks.

Brody Tickell, Andrew Stellas and Zak McCubbin each had solid outings and combined for nine of the Boro’s 16 goals in the high-scoring affair, while Charlie Molyneux featured in the best players once again in his second game in green and white and capped his performance with one of the goals of the season.

Hamish Paynter again racked up plenty of the football, while Ned McKeown and Brad Leggett led a resolute defence that only allowed the visitors 13

Greensborough was a convincing winner in both outings against Whittlesea last year, scoring victories by 45 and 74 points. WWW. NFNL. ORG. AU

MEADOWS GREYHOUNDS DIVISION 1 GREENSBOROUGH Today we host Whittlesea. SENIORS: Bounced back in impressive fashion, defeating North Heidelberg by nine points, in what was one of the games of the season, and one of the best in recent memory. We started on top, but then found ourselves five goals down midway through the second term, before the boys rallied, and worked their way back. Brody Tickell, Andrew Stellas and Zak Mccubbin all booted three goals and featured in the best, while Jack Johnston put in another huge defensive performance, as Charlie Molyneux kicked his first goal as a Boro boy and was amongst the best player again. We have anopportunity to head into the first break at 4-1, so it’s important we are on song today! RESERVES: Continued on their winning way against North Heidelberg and despite trailing at half time by five points, ran out 39-point winners. A nine goal to one second half saw us regain the ascendency. Jake Rowe kicked four majors, while Drew Wilson continued his good form, as did Ben Pannam. Rhys Lambert and Sam Hennessey were solid in defence, while Josh Money impressed when he went onto the ball. A huge

WHITTLESEA This week we heard out of Whittlesea for the first time and its time we showed what we can produce.

SENIORS: Last week was this year’s poor performance that we hope was a one-off. We played 10 minutes of good football which left 110 minutes for the opposition to take full advantage. Once again Xav showed he’s class while Riley worked hard. Deards competed well and played he’s role while Jay Russell again fought on. RESERVES: We started really well with scoreboard pressure in the first 15 minutes. The middle two quarters become a scrap with a relentless opposition giving their all. To our credit we saw off the challenge and capitalised late to take the game. Our defence was solid, our on-ballers worked hard both ways and our forwards used the ball well. Pip again shone, while Rowey’s second and third efforts set the standard. Presti, Burgess, Langers and Hughesy all played well. UNDER-19: Outclassed by a good side. We had our chances early but didn’t make the most of it, leaving the door open for an opposition who got on a roll. 14

test against undefeated Whittlesea this week. UNDER-19: Our future stars went down to Eltham last week, in a replay of the 2017 Grand Final. We started well, but after quarter time Eltham put the foot down, and we only managed four goals after the first break. Lachie Wilson and Kyle Horkings were amongst the best players, while hardman Josh Filip also featured. Ben Laschko kicked two goals and continued his impressive start to the year. The boys sit 3-1 after four matches, so it is important we bounce back this week, and remain in the top section of the ladder. WOMEN’S: Had the bye last week, but return to action tomorrow against St Mary’s at home. The game starts at 3:00pm so get down and support our girls! AROUND THE CLUB: Thanks to Caz and Kelly for their organisation of the High Tea last Saturday, it was great to see so many women enjoying an afternoon at the footy! Mr Boro is on Saturday May 19, and tables are fast selling out. Contact Jake Lambert on 0433 531 937. BORO RUMOUR MILL: Which Boro boy is avoiding Thursday night dinners like the plague, for fear of being called up on stage and interviewed?

Benny Rowan was outstanding across half back, with Rye, Blake, Fitzy, Deaks and Kyle all having solid games. Four quarters of our best footy beats anyone but we haven’t managed that yet. NETBALL: Seniors were up against Heidelberg this week. Game plays were non-existent, passing was terrible and so on. We made a few changes in the third quarter and it just didn’t work. Back to normal positions in the four quarter and was our best quarter for the game. Eagles 30 - Heidelberg 15. The juniors this week were moved up a section and up against Northcote Park. The girls did a great job considering the move and down a defender. We are still learning and know what we have to work on this week moving forward. Eagles 25 - Northcote Park 35 THE CLUB: Friday 18th – Bogan Bingo is back, the first junior fundraiser for the year, 7pm kick off. Prizes for best dressed and games throughout the night. See Lisa or Jaz for details Be sure to get down to the rooms on Thursday nights to see “The Chase” heat up as the players try to make it two on the trot. Meals also as good as they have ever been so be sure to make Thursday nights the “Footy Club Night.”

MEADOWS GREYHOUNDS DIVISION 1 HEIDELBERG The Bridges journey to the Den today. Last year they

got the points at their ground and pushed us all day at home, so we expect a really tough contest. LAST WEEK’S WASH UP: A week of injury, an illness and a couple of guys playing a VFL under 23s game hit us pretty hard last week. With six of our available under-19s in our senior side we disappointingly had to forfeit our 19s. We’ve worked hard to crunch our player numbers and will be back on the ground in the 19s this week. SENIORS: Our senior team battled strongly in blustery conditions to come away with another hard-fought win against Bundoora. We are particularly proud of the efforts of our youngsters last week who all looked well at home in our senior side. RESERVES: Our twos recorded a really strong win as Favvy wound back the clock, kicking seven. Was a bit of a goal bonanza as Sauce also snagged six. AROUND THE CLUB: Trust that everyone enjoyed the great photo of Callum Lewis on the front cover of last week’s Northerner. It has been rumoured that he

HURSTBRIDGE Today we are on the road again to Heidelberg. SENIORS: What a difference a week is in football. The boys come to play and it showed. Really proud of the way they went about their footy. We showed that if we play for one another anything is possible. Best team game I’ve seen them play. Looking forward to another huge challenge in Heidelberg. Good luck boys! DEVELOPMENT: Firstly, I would like to congratulate Chicken, his coaching staff and the boys on their fantastic win. The development squad got off to a slow start in the first quarter allowing Whittlesea’s midfielders to dominate and get an early lead on us. After that we matched them around the ground with our pressure for the next three quarters, unfortunately not taking the 4 points but never giving up and really battled hard to the final siren. NETBALL: Hurstbridge 1 (32) def Keon Park 1 (28) Things were often rushed in the first half, and the ball needed to be protected more. After lots of hard defensive work, transitions were a bit predictable and the ball was given up too easily. The team was 16

contacted NFNL media to ask to be on the front cover as he’s a pretty photogenic lad. Been unable to prove the voracity of the rumour. PRESIDENTS LUNCH – SATURDAY MAY 12: Today we welcome Damien Hardwick, the reigning AFL premiership coach as our President’s Lunch speaker. At the time of going to print we have a sellout on our hands. For those coming to our footy club for lunch today we trust you have a great afternoon. For the Richmond supporters in attendance try and keep yourselves nice. PLAYER SPONSORSHIP: Interested in sponsoring a player’s subscription fees in 2018?

This allowed more pace and control to surge to the lead in the last quarter. Hurstbridge 2 (29) def Bundoora 5 (9) Timing in the transitions from deep in defence all the way to goalers was fantastic to watch. Communication on the court was the best yet and everything just clicked. Defenders took some giant rebounds and got hands in the way for plenty of intercepts. Very disciplined defence to keep good distance and not obstruct which kept the pressure on. Goalers were very accurate and were on the end of great quality feeds. Hurstbridge 3 (27) def Bundoora 7 (17) Players worked their roles very well and showed they are becoming a solid team. Transitions down the court were neat and tidy, and goalers worked the circle well. Defenders applied very good pressure. Our first win of the season and a very good one at that! SPONSORS: We thank all our new and existing sponsors for their commitment in 2018. SOCIAL DATES: Tonight – Get your school uniforms ready for our Back to School Party at the club from 7pm; June 2 – Tile Club Gold Half Time Luncheon.

MEADOWS GREYHOUNDS DIVISION 1 NORTH HEIDELBERG Back to Bendigo Community Bank Oval to face Bundoora. SENIORS: So close but in the end the poise to finish and take the game on was the difference against a well-drilled Boro side. Had our chances but one thing it confirms, our game plan stacks up against the best sides in the division and another victory is not far off. Keep at it and with the commitment and discipline shown last week we are capable of winning more games in the near future. Today presents another challenge and opportunity against the Bulls. Be switched on and we are right in it. DEVELOPMENT: Were leading narrowly at half-time but the third quarter proved costly. Commitment was there and was pleasing to see a few who had been struggling for touch get plenty of it. This week a real chance, if you come to play and will yourself to every contest and are prepared to support your teammate. UNDER-19: Gradually starting to see improvement with more of the inexperienced players developing further by the week therefore a more even contribution across the ground and not relying on too few. Very encouraging last quarter and with a more

BUNDOORA This week we are away to play North Heidelberg. SENIORS: A close game all day with the Tigers kicking away in the final quarter. With so many injured players out of our side I was surprised Heidelberg never thumped us. We started off the 2017 with a few losses early and rebounded back so let’s hope we get some of our players back from injury soon and get back on the winners list. Best players: Benjamin Nesci, Scott Dowell and Dale Marshall. RESERVES: With so many players pulled from our reserves to cover our injuries in the senior side it was always going to end badly. However, I thought our boys did a great job against an obviously stronger opposition. Great to see Nick Curtin put on the boots again and coach Shane Jacobs having a run around the paddock. Well we never got the win, but you gave it your best shot, what more can one ask? Can’t wait to see how we go next week boys. Best players: Jake Bennett, Beau Moorcroft and Tyla Barrow. UNDER-19: Arrived at De Winton Park on a beautiful sunny morning hoping we could put a win on the 18

board. However, our first quarter wasn’t too flash, so we ended up being under the pump the whole game until the final quarter, where we did win the majority of the ball however it was to late. Some positives to be taken out of this game, but as Scottie has said every week to follow our coach’s instructions. Boys play as a team. If you want to play as individuals, leave and play golf. Best players: Jamaica Isley, Bailey Thompson and Will Reddrop. WOMEN’S: What a great win by our girls at Eltham, keeping the opposition to just one goal for the game, with us kicking 8 goals. Amy Callaway did a splendid job, kicking five goals however it was also due to some great passes from her team mates. Four games for four wins and on top of the ladder, the harder we train the better we play. Great win for our new women’s coach Gary Moorcroft. Best players: Amy Callaway, Brittany Del Romano and Bridgette Gray. AROUND THE BULLRING: Man-o-Man is on the 19th May. Girls you will enjoy this night tell your friends and bring them along to what will be a great night.

MEADOWS GREYHOUNDS DIVISION 1 NORTHCOTE PARK This week we host Macleod. SENIORS: Northcote began off the back foot. West scored their first two goals from turnovers and good rebound play. Northcote looked to congest West’s forward 50 by flooding the area – this limited their kicking efficiency only momentarily. West’s back men were unmatched in the contested ball and a multitude of inside 50s. Northcote kept their intent up and tried valiantly. However, West moved the ball well in traffic and found several avenues towards goal, whereas Northcote struggle to offer good forward presentation. It was two goals to eight in the second half in favour of West, who finished 80-point winners. RESERVES: Northcote could not exit their defensive half at all in the first quarter. West locked up Northcote’s movement well and caused multiple turnovers that translated into four goals from seven scoring shots. Lack of defensive play from Northcote opened plenty of gaps around the ground. What followed quarter time was not Northcote’s liking. Once West built momentum with their goal kicking Northcote could not stop the avalanche. Northcote’s first and only goal came at the 22-minute mark of the

MACLEOD We are off to Bill Lawry Oval today to take on Northcote Park for the Melican-Anderson Cup. LAST WEEK: It was an emphatic performance against an in-form opponent, riding home on the back of a six-goal last term to record a 61-point victory. For the second week in a row, Hamish Paynter led from the front and put his shoulder to the wheel in the midfield. Down back Ned McKeown was a tower of strength while Patrick Martin was a focal point up forward with six goals. The reserves are yet to hit their straps in 2018 and faded badly against a determined Montmorency. Luke Dowdle put his hand up for senior selection but we need a more even contribution from the entire side. The under-19s continued on their merry way with a solid 27-point win over Bundoora. Brayden Plant was BOG. NETBALL: Macleod 1 defeated Craigieburn 29-18 while Macleod 2 lost to South Morang 45-34. BUSINESS LUNCH: We have another big-name guest for our annual lunch in former Bulldogs star Bob Murphy. With Ian Cover from the Coodabeen 20

third quarter – but this offered no consolation as West Preston charged to a convincing 154-point win. UNDER-19: Northcote started the game with plenty of spring in their step. The Cougars controlled a lot of the ball through pressure in their forward half and St Mary’s struggled to win the centre clearances. The last three quarters were complete opposites to the first. St Mary’s slowed Northcote down, with the Cougars falling away when going forward. The score line seesawed for majority of the second half as nothing split either side. Eventually it was Northcote who proved victorious with a late sealer. It was an under-par performance but a welcome result. NETBALL: Northcote Park 2 won against Diamond Creek. They put strong defensive pressure on the opposition’s center passes and their work at training is starting to transfer to the court. Northcote Park 3 were late and we’re penalised 8 points accordingly. The girls worked hard in defense but we’re unable to make up those lost points, losing to Bundoora by 9. Northcote Park 1 had their first win against Laurimar. Northcote produced excellent team work and showcased what they had been working on at training to win by 10. Northcote Park 4 had a great win against top side Whittlesea – they continue to improve every week.

MEADOWS GREYHOUNDS DIVISION 1 WEST PRESTON-LAKESIDE Today it’s Mont at home in what should be another ripping game of local footy.

FOOTBALL: The Mellerick/McNeice Cup is back in safe hands, at least we think it is. Sammy was good across half back and Jacko knows how to take a mark. Big Kova got a late call up and Paul has gone to work on enlarging the entrance. The two had a strong win with the Irishman leading from the front. It’s amazing how better someone plays when they do a bit of work behind the scenes. The under-19s had the biggest game in the last three years aborted at the last moment. Although having only won two games in the last two years they believe the best way to develop their skills is to play at the highest level and want to be here. The girls had a strong win and are home again tomorrow vs Darebin at 3pm. Next home game is another classic against the Bulls on May 26. AROUND THE TRAPS: Does Gerry need a bigger lawn? Last seen pushing his mower up Gilbert Rd and around the boundary. Has Des found a new job as tram line inspector? Does Saady know you can hire people to walk your dog?

MONTMORENCY Ben’s boys face a big challenge when they journey to

Moore Park to take on a well-performed West Preston outfit. Here is an opportunity to make a statement against quality opposition and bounce back from last week. SENIORS: Wow, Northern League footy is a rollercoaster ride. One week we are roosters, the next week feather dusters. Congratulations must go to Macleod who played high-pressure footy from the get go and restricted us. They got on top in the first quarter and apart from a rally of sorts from Ben’s boys in the third, controlled the remainder of the match. We had a few winners but overall were not up to the hosts, who proved they are still a good side. If we are to make our mark this year we must be more consistent across all four quarters. Our better players included Sam Binion, Michael Fitz-Gerald, Brent Fotheringhame and Big Joel. RESERVES: Rick’s charges are playing with great spirit. When they come up against good opposition such as Macleod, they keep persisting and eventually overpower their opponents through hard running and team work. They are a pleasure to watch because they never give in. Best players: R. Barra, J. Cole, K. Watson, J. Cook, N. Paton, D. Di Carlo.

Fitzroy Stars got on the board for the first time in 2018 after a nail-biting one-point win in Round 4 and will look to continue that form when they travel to Eltham Central Park to take on ladder-leader Eltham in the first outing between the two clubs. After losing their opening three games by an average of 99 points, the Stars trailed at every major break in their clash with the Blues last Saturday. But they never gave in and despite an inaccurate final term, which saw them boot 5.8 to 5.0, they were still able to get over the line. A three-goal haul from John Hayes and major contributions from Steven Stallion, Chris Hall and Hedley Smith helped the Stars in their last-gasp win, as they finally opened their 2018 account. The win was sealed with a last-minute goal to Shawn Wilkey. For the Panthers, things went a lot smoother as they accounted for Watsonia to the tune of 67 points at A.K. Lines Reserve to record their fifth-successive win. Star recruit Brent Macaffer had his best game of the season and was aided by strong performances by Brandon Freeman – who kicked five goals to make it a dozen in two weeks – as well as four-goal hauls to Bradyn Taglieri and Thomas Carafa. Lower Plenty remains the competition’s second unbeaten team and will be looking to score its fifth-consecutive win when it hosts Epping at Montmorency Park South Oval. Lower made a strong start against Diamond Creek last week but were made to work extremely hard for a gripping win. Ahead by 18 points at three-quarter time, they were forced to come from behind, with Corey Sleep’s late goal securing a three-point victory. Patrick Flynn was superb for Lower in their nail-biting win, while a four-goal contribution from Ben Paterson was also a major factor as their side reversed a fourgame run of outs against the Demons. Epping came agonisingly close to securing its second win of the season, leading for the opening three quarters before falling to a loss by the closest possible margin at Sir Douglass Nicholls Oval. Thomas Emmins had a day out with four majors in his best game at senior level. Leigh Judd was again a standout, whilst youngsters Jake Perry and Jordan Wilkins also had solid outings in the close defeat.

Despite the disappointing finish for the Blues, a win and a one-point loss from the opening four rounds, having played three of the top-four sides, shows the club is tracking well in its return to second division. Watsonia hosts Banyule in a twilight encounter at A.K. Lines Reserve. Banyule was a 78-point winner in the Round 1 outing between the two sides. The Saints were competitive early in their match against Eltham last weekend, trailing by just 21 points at half time. However, the Panthers gradually stretched their advantage with a 10-goal to three second half. Rick Kimberley and Kelby White were the shining lights for the Saints, while the club’s eight goals were shared by eight individual goal kickers, which included a goal to Cooper Gunn in his first senior game. Banyule showed true grit to secure a crucial five-point win over Thomastown at R.J. Brockwell Oval. Trailing by five goals and limited to one fit player on the bench, the home side rallied, with a last-ditch goal to Mannon Johnston securing the four points. Strong performances by Johnston, Daniel Kelly, Devin McDonald and a three-goal haul from James Kroussoratis were crucial to lifting their side to victory – helping to push Pete Davey’s side one-game clear in fourth spot. Thomastown and Diamond Creek will be looking to bounce back from tight losses when they meet at Main Street Reserve. Thomastown looked in complete control early in the third term last week but couldn’t hold out a fastfinishing Banyule. A win would have pushed Ben Chapman’s side inside the top-four after a month of football. Dylan Chapman continued his stellar season with another brilliant display, Adrian Natoli won plenty of the ball, while Shannon Ball and Anthony Capeci each booted three goals. Diamond Creek suffered just their second loss of the season, as they went down by three points to Lower Plenty. The loss leaves last year’s runner-up one-game outside the top-two. Poor disposal during the first half allowed the home side to open a big lead – one the Creekers couldn’t peg back despite a very strong second half. Jacob Booth, Jess Cosaitis and Ryan Pingree each kicked three goals, while Oliver Parks played his best game of the year. WWW. NFNL. ORG. AU

A PLUS LABOUR SOLUTIONS DIVISION 2 ELTHAM This week the senior teams host Fitzroy Stars for the first time in the club’s history.

TODAY: It’s also Platinum Panther day so huge thanks goes out to all those supporters and the volunteers that will make the day enjoyable. LAST WEEK: Another four wins is a great week. U19(2)s played Panton Hill and after an even first half managed to kick away for a good 25-point win. The U19(1)s travelled to take on the previously undefeated Greensborough and with a very strong second and third quarters, where we kicked eight goals to one, came away with a good 26-point win. Both senior sides travelled to Watsonia and remain undefeated for the season with 41 and 67-point wins respectfully. Excellent to see a strong Panther contingent hang around at Watsonia post-game, especially for presentation of the Duncan Minney Trophy. MR PANTHHER – MAY 19: The famous Mr Panther function held during the bye week. The lads are working on their abs in readiness. More details to come soon.

FITZROY STARS This week it’s Eltham at their joint and an opportunity to play the top side and former first division powerhouse. After gaining some much-needed confidence, we are keen to put ourselves against the best.

SENIORS: The preparation was first class on the track, as well as off it, this week and it showed right from the outset. Our boys hit them with everything from the start and we were up against a worthy opponent who were just as desperate to win as we were. Epping got out to a lead early on in the game with their talls causing all kinds of issues up forward. But the Stars held on, not allowing Epping any breathing space and went into the main break only a goal down. The arm wrestle continued right through the second half with the excitement at fever pitch with the whole crowd holding their breath. It eventually came down to the final 20 seconds with the unlikely of heroes, Shawn Wilkey, booting home the victorious goal. It was pandemonium at the final siren and a win we both deserved and needed. Once again Stevie was influential, Hally terrific and Wilkey the match winner with Hedley inspirational dashing off half back. Great 26

PRESIDENTS LUNCH – JULY 7: This is going to be huge. The three guest speakers are Richmond GM Neil Balme and Richmond premiership players and Panther juniors Nick Vlastuin and Josh Caddy. See Andrew Burns for bookings, online bookings available. EVERY THURSDAY: Drop down every Thursday and watch training and hear the teams announced. Get there early and have a beer with Trapdaw under the nice new heaters. With over 100 meals getting served and enjoyed do not miss out.

effort boys. RESERVES: In a first for the Stars, the ressies got us off to a flyer with a heart stopping victory against quality opposition. Bomber kicked three and worked hard up the ground with veterans Gaz, Al and McKeown all leading from the front. Leigh and Eagles worked damn hard for this and hopefully the win will start to get our boys the appetite to win again. NETBALL: Our netballers had a sensational night with our firsts and thirds having excellent wins, while our seconds just missed out. Esme and her girls took on Heidelberg and won 40-23. Lesley had a tough night against Craigieburn while Eddies ladies sorted South Morang out 42-34. Great night to all our netballers. JUNIORS: Our juniors also played Epping in the under-9s and the under-13s had a bye. Unfortunately, the under-11s had to forfeit but got a hit out regardless which was good form from Diamond Creek. Let’s get our kids sorted this week. GO STARS!

A PLUS LABOUR SOLUTIONS DIVISION 2 LOWER PLENTY Today we welcome Epping to the bear cave as we aim to make it 5-0 for the seniors. SENIORS: What a match last week with Sleepy kicking the match-winning goal to keep the Bears undefeated for 2018. In what was a nail-biting finish we struggled with Diamond Creek’s fast ball movement in the second half however, we remained strong till the end not giving up to snatch the win from three points behind in the dying few minutes. Great performances from Patto, Ducky, Patty and Nolan. This keeps us second on the ladder with Eltham in front due to an extra match. RESERVES: Unfortunately for the reserves they suffered their first defeat for the season. After Diamond Creek got up to a five-goal lead at half time we did our best to fight back but accuracy didn’t help, and we ended up down by 12 points. Good games from Jacko, Clampy and Bowen with three goals. UNDER-19: The under-19s made it four wins in a row with a seven-goal quarter after the half time break

EPPING This week we travel to Lower Plenty SENIORS: Started off the game well with ten shots in the first quarter. Our ball movement was quick and forward entries left us with gettable shots. Unfortunately, 3.7 was not what we were after. Fitzroy were very hard at the contest and whilst we played well we had trouble holding or laying tackles and this proved crucial. The second and third quarters were very tight and when we switched or created some overlap run we were dangerous and it was the same for the Stars, who were very quick by hand and ran hard. They continued to run and pepper the goals in the last quarter, kicking 5.8 to 4.0 to win by a point. We had chances to retain the ball late and made some basic errors that cost us the game, however if the result was reversed Stars would be saying the same thing. No points sadly, however a win and a one-point loss having played three of the top four sides is really promising. RESERVES: Another good effort against Fitzroy Stars. We really need to put four quarters together and the wins will come. Well done to Tyler, Shannon and Brandon on their first games. In the best were Brownie, Lewis, Rosey, Jesse and Watto. Great fourth 28

giving us enough breathing space to take the four points. Great performances all around with Wilkinson slotting four goals with Owens best on field. NETBALL: Our girls, sadly, were defeated by Thomastown who proved just too strong winning by seven goals. A great effort.

quarter effort fellas. A few more injuries to add to the list, sadly Fergs broke his thumb, but going forward the numbers will get better. PLAYERS VIEW: Disappointing result with the boys going down to Fitzroy Stars by one point in the final minute. Jake Perry was named best afield but it was Tom Emmins who kicked four goals in his best display to date in the seniors. The reserves worked hard but were also defeated in a close one, with Rory Henderson kicking two goals and Tyler Pierce also kicking three.

A PLUS LABOUR SOLUTIONS DIVISION 2 THOMASTOWN This week we host Diamond Creek. SENIORS: Not much that can really be said about last week’s performance against Banyule. For much of the game we were relatively in control, particularly when we stretched the lead out to the best part of five goals. To then give up that lead and lose the game leaves a sour taste in the mouth and we look forward to turning things around this week RESERVES: We headed to Banyule needing a win and asked all the boys to get there and be switched on. Our start was positive, and we went to the first break with a lead. In the second term we really took control of the game and kept the football in our half. The one negative was our kicking, booting 3.7 for the quarter. Banyule took all their chances in the third term, kicking five straight goals and had the momentum into the last quarter. We asked the boys to dig deep in the last and they didn’t let us down, eventually winning by 26 points NETBALL: After a tough battle, the 1s fought to the

DIAMOND CREEK This week we travel to Main Street Reserve to take on Thomastown.

SENIORS: A disappointing result against Lower Plenty, with only ourselves to blame. Our poor disposal through the course of the first half saw us give up too much of a lead to reel in. However, after half time our quality of play improved dramatically and as a result we certainly gave ourselves the opportunity to steal the win, however it wasn’t to be. Strong performances from Hugh, Tye, Ollie, Danyan and J Lo with Jess, Boothy and Pingers doing well up forward. RESERVES: Saturday saw us come away with a really hard fought two-goal victory over a very wellstructured and disciplined Lower Plenty. After kicking out to a solid lead at half time on the back of fantastic ball movement and forward pressure we were forced to defend time after time in the second half as Lower Plenty fought back hard. Cam Craig and Josh Smith, in his 150th game, were brilliant in the middle as was Robby Noble on the wing. 36

end but suffered their first lost against Heat. The 2s had a bye. Our 3s got back to their true selves, playing with team work and playing hard for the ball which paid off, walking away with their second win against Epping. The 4s had a fun friendly game with a win against Lower Plenty. The 5s gave everything they had, always giving second efforts but unfortunately not being able to walk away with a win against Heidelberg West SOCIAL NEWS: Well done to all involved with our first function of the year last week, the Poker Night. It was a resounding success. Our next function is undoubtedly one of the highlights of the year, the Man O Man night. Stay tuned for further details but it will be held at the rooms on Saturday May 26. SHERRIFF’S DEPARTMENT: Glad to see that our former skipper, Anthony, could make it to the Poker Night in the same month as his 3 and a half year wedding anniversary. At least he saved some money by nights end, winning some luxurious cinema tickets for his next date night.

UNDER-19: The under-19s had a bye last week. NETBALL: Diamond Creek 1 (61) defeated Heidelberg 1 (39) Raining goals for both teams in the first half. Tightening up our defence saw us come out with a convincing win; Diamond Creek 2 (31) defeated Greensborough 2 (22) Built up a comfortable lead early and never looked back; Diamond Creek 3 (28) defeated Craigieburn 1 (26) Managed to steady the play and hold on to a win; Diamond Creek 4 (23) defeated North Heidelberg 4 (21) Some dedicated turnovers and control with the ball saw us break away in the final minutes; Diamond Creek 5 (19) lost to Northcote Park 2 (28) Competitive most game but ran out of steam in the final quarter. CONGRATULATIONS: Well done to Josh Smith on 150 games last week.

A PLUS LABOUR SOLUTIONS DIVISION 2 WATSONIA A relatively quiet week this week down at A.K. Lines. THE CLUB: With the club’s often advertised steak night still six months away and the much-anticipated Gary Eastwood night not yet here, it seemed the only thing to look forward to was the football itself – which most players league-wide will agree, is the worst thing about playing football. A few games of spot the difference on Thursday night proved to be a stroke of genius ahead of the impending jumper clash with Eltham. Twos captain Herb, clearly feeling like he needed to go above and beyond in his preparation, ran through some ‘stoppage drills’ with slugs better half throughout the week, which he claimed better prepared him for the physicality that Eltham were sure to bring. UNDER-19: The boys were handed their first loss for the season against a classy Mernda side who I’m sure they will be seeing again very late in the season. Another tough test awaits them, a Banyule side that last time only just fell short. RESERVES: Much the same for the reserves this week, coming up against the flag favourites the boys put up a great contest, but a lack of execution prevented them from being able to pinch a win.

BANYULE This week we take on Watsonia. SENIORS: Our best home and away win of recent times with the senior boys rallying from a 30-point deficit midway through the third quarter to record a five-point victory over Thomastown with under a minute to play. The victory was made all the more special given the difficult week we’d had leading in and the fact that we lost three players throughout the afternoon to injury. With our season now back on track, we look forward to our return bout with Watsonia at A.K. Lines. Best: Johnston, Kelly McDonald, Kroussoratis, Downes, Barclay. RESERVES: With a large number of players missing due to injury it was going to be a hard one against Thomastown. They got the jump early and we spent the whole day playing catch up football. We have to be able to start from the first quarter, instead of playing one quarter and leaving too much to try and catch up. Jacob Smith had the footy on a string, Coulson did his job again in the ruck and Shaun McKenzie did his best up forward with limited opportunities because we tried to go to the pockets 38

Premiership hero Matt Crawford provided a muchneeded bailout kick down forward, while Burnouts Mann and Jesse ‘The Body’ Hawkes were very impressive in their first hitout of the year. The most disappointing aspect of the day came hours later, with the Eltham reserves contingent clearly the better sledgers during the senior game, something that the Watsonia reserves have proved themselves on. Have to be better boys. SENIORS: Battled well and at times set the standard of how they should play for the remainder of the year. Cooper Gunn in his first senior game took his opportunity kicking a goal that saw 17 blokes get straight over to him. Fan favourite Jamie Haber was struck down with unfortunately what looks to be a serious knee injury (Not like this Pin) while Hayesy proved that our nation’s youth is in fine hands, displaying an alarming lack of problem solving ability when counting the number of players on the bench and securing himself another spin of the wheel next week. Banyule presents a fantastic opportunity to keep moving in the right direction for all three sides. But most importantly, get down to watch Tass eat his dinner in the centre circle Thursday! GO WATS! every time. When we did put it to the hotspot Shaun did his job. We take on Watsonia this week and it will be another tough time if we do not come to the game with a four-quarter effort. UNDER-19: With Sean Downes and skipper LT getting promoted to the ones, which was thoroughly deserved, and five players out injured we took to the field against Lower Plenty with 17 players. Lower got the jump early in the first quarter, but once our players settled we managed to kick a couple of quick goals to be just down at quarter time. The second quarter was the same. We were playing catch up football but only five points down at half time. The third quarter was a shocker. Lower did what they pleased, the only highlight was Matt Jeffery’s three goals for the term. Went into the last quarter 40 points behind. Down to 16 players in the last, the guys played the football we have played in the last few weeks. They took risks, ran in numbers and played some great football. We only went down by 16 points, a fair effort in the end. Still have plenty of work to do, to be a real force this year. Best players were Sean, Pat McKenzie, Hunt, Toby, Jeffery, Silky and KP.

HEIDELBERG GOLF CLUB DIVISION 3 - Preview TWO UPSETS AND A THRILLER Two teams recorded their first victories for the season in Round 5 action of Heidelberg Golf Club Division 3. With a five-goal to nil second term, Laurimar came away with its maiden win for 2018 – an impressive come-from-behind 32-point win against Kilmore at J.J. Clancy Reserve. The Power had six multiple goal-kickers and it was the first time they have scored over 100 points away from home during their brief time in the senior competition. “A great win today by our boys,” coach Justin Sherman said. “They stuck to the plan for longer and got some reward for effort.” Kilmore slipped out of the top-four with the loss. The Blues now have the bye and then a break for the interleague weekend. “It was a very disappointing effort from us today,” Kilmore coach Nathan Phillips said. “Laurimar outplayed us and applied pressure all day.” In a similar vein to Laurimar, Heidelberg West has shown improvement of late and opened its account with a big 63-point win over Reservoir at Heidelberg Park. The Mustangs were in the contest at half time, but the Hawks roared away with a 7.10 to 1.6 second half. “We played the brand of footy we want to play,” a happy Heidelberg West coach Gary Cutler said. “We were cleaner and more fluent with our ball movement.” Brad Moore was best on ground in his 100th game, while Dylan Hayes impressed in his senior debut with three majors. It was a disappointing loss for the rebuilding Reservoir in a game they would have seen as winnable. Laurimar and Heidelberg West both now sit at one and three. This is the same win/loss record that Reservoir had on the way to the 2015 premiership. Panton Hill ended the unbeaten run of St Mary’s with a 23-point win at A.E. Cracknell Reserve. The Redbacks were brilliant early and led by 41 points at half time. The twin towers of Matthew Byron and Rhys Boyden combined for nine goals with Boyden also spending some time in the ruck. Mernda went into the clash with Lalor at Waterview Recreation Reserve as hot favourites. For the second

by Doug Long

week in a row, the Demons flew out of the blocks – leading 5.6 to 0.1 at quarter time. The game became almost a carbon copy of Mernda’s previous week against Heidelberg West, because the Bloods then wrestled back control to kick nine of the final 14 goals to finish within five points. This included a 3.6 to 1.3 final quarter to nearly claim their second win of the year. Mernda captain Josh Delaney was again among the best players on the ground, while Lalor was well served by Robert Todd and Jackson Freebairn. “It was a really good performance after quarter time,” Lalor coach Dean Grainger said. “We have had two consistent performances in a row and a win isn’t far away.” Round 6 action of Heidelberg Golf Club Division 3 football includes a top of the table clash between St Mary’s and Mernda at Whatmough Park. Top spot is up for grabs. Both sets of fans would be disappointed with last week’s efforts – although the Demons managed a narrow win. Their last meeting at this ground in 2017 resulted in a huge 65-point win for the Burra, but this one is expected to be much closer against a Mernda outfit which is performing much better this year. Heidelberg West will be full of confidence after breaking its duck last week. The Hawks face South Morang – coming off the bye – at Mill Park Lakes Reserve. The Lions had two big wins over the Heidelberg West last year but will be wary of their opponents who are gradually getting their best team back on the field. Laurimar will be looking to make it two wins on the trot when it travels to Crispe Park to face Reservoir. Based on last week’s results, the Power are likely to be hot favourites. It is a must-win game for Laurimar as they attempt to work their way up the ladder and again prove themselves as a contender after beating Kilmore and pushing St Mary’s the week prior. Panton Hill travels to a familiar ground in Lalor Reserve to play an improving Lalor. The Bloods won all three of their Division 2 battles last year and have exceeded the expectations of many in 2018. But the Redbacks will be favoured to win on the back of their impressive home win over St Mary’s in the twilight game and strong form since Round 1. WWW. NFNL. ORG. AU

HEIDELBERG GOLF CLUB DIVISION 3 LALOR This week we host Panton Hill SENIORS: On paper and form, it looked like the Bloods would suffer a big loss against second-placed Mernda in our Round 5 clash – and this rang true when Mernda piled on five goals to nothing in the first quarter. Thereafter however, it was much more accountable Lalor outfit which took the field, slowing Mernda’s scoring and creating more opportunities of our own. Whilst in the end, the first quarter deficit proved too hard to overcome, going down by five points at the final siren – it was a strong and impressive performance by Lalor’s senior outfit. For the second week in a row, the team finished much stronger than their opposition, proving that the hard work on the training track is paying off. If the team can start games the way they finish a win isn’t far away! RESERVES: Unfortunately, it was a different story for our undermanned reserves side who were outclassed by Mernda to the tune of 88 points. Keep sticking fat fellas. The senior boys have shown that hard work on the training track can pay off and this will ring true for the reserves if you can improve in this area!

PANTON HILL We are very happy with the result last week having

stepped up another notch against quality opposition in St Mary’s. SENIORS: Our first half, in particular our second quarter, was as good as it can get from a sustained pressure point of view over the three zones. Brent Ryan set the scene with some key plays out of defence. John Pritchard played his best game for the club off the wing and with our mids’ work rate up and about we were able to gain control of the game. Our work rate created multiple quality opportunities for our key forwards in Boydo and Matty B. Nick Parks had another good game and is developing nicely with his ruck work. Luke Ericson dominated across half back. As expected in the second half St Mary’s came at us hard and the most pleasing point for us was the way our leaders stepped up when it mattered to help us hold onto a quality four-goal win. RESERVES: Gallant effort against a very well drilled and organised side. Pressure was finally at the level we want and for the whole game. We are determined to

Further details and ticket packages for both events at www.bloodsfnc.com.au/store. carry on this next week against Lalor. UNDER 19: Last Saturday we played Eltham. I was reasonably confident we would be competitive with the selected side. Enter the flu. Five boys pulled out sick and three more played under duress. This also meant we had only three on the bench. I knew that on the big ground, with a depleted side we needed to conserve our energy so the more stoppages the better. We had a plan to hold the ball in tight and get as many ball ups and throw ins as possible. Wearing our new Panton Hill jumpers this worked well in the first quarter and along with a small change in game style, we were in the lead by three points at quarter time. The second quarter was a different story and we let Eltham get on top to lead by two goals at half. The boys responded well but with a couple of injuries to key players we started to drop off and went into the final quarter 18 points down. With half a fit player left on the bench and a tiring side, the boys fought hard as usual but we went down by 35 points. It was a good effort in the circumstances and we look forward to meeting them again at The Hill.

HEIDELBERG GOLF CLUB DIVISION 3 RESERVOIR This week we host Laurimar. SENIORS: We ventured down to Heidelberg Park for Round 5. We started off well, kicking the first goal of the game but that was to be our only goal for the quarter. The message from the coach was positive because our pressure was good, and we were creating turnovers, we just couldn’t hit the scoreboard. We continued the pressure into the second and were able to kick a few goals, matching the West boys on the scoreboard for the quarter. After half time we looked like a different team. The work rate and the pressure dropped off and we only managed one goal after half time. The backline was great all day but lots of work needed to be done to improve. RESERVES: We knew we were in for a hard contest with nine changes again and Heidelberg West proved it and led at quarter time. In the second we flicked the switch with our run and handball and kicked the only three goals for the quarter to take the lead at the main break. The message at half time was to continue the run but we needed to clean up our forward entries. We started the third slowly and were a couple of goals down before

LAURIMAR Today we travel to Reservoir, who will put up a tough challenge in both games.

SENIORS: Last week we travelled to Kilmore. We started well early but missed a few shots and evened the quarter. Came out with plenty of intensity and effort in the second quarter and set up a five-goal lead. We continued to battle in the third quarter and Kilmore made the most of their opportunities. In the last quarter we fought it out to the end and came away with a 32-point win. Our first for the year, well deserved boys! A consistent team effort most of the day. We are starting to set our standards from which the rewards will come. Trust the process, all in! Very promising for the club with seven of last year’s under-17s playing seniors against Kilmore, their enthusiasm combining well with their more experienced teammates. RESERVES: The boys came out with much greater intensity this week and set up a good quarter time lead. We relaxed in the second quarter allowing Kilmore to be in front at half time. Our second half efforts were great to see and what the coaches have been asking for, kicking nine goals to set up a 21-point 44

we lifted again to go one goal up at the last break. The last quarter saw us run out of legs but we never stopped having a crack. Ben Spokes was awesome all day along with Mitch, Rama and the Pera brothers. NETBALL: The ladies added another two wins to their tally fighting, off Kilmore in two awesome games. Our Fillies remain undefeated and hold their top spot positions on the ladders! #gofillies CLUB MEMBERSHIP: All our loyal supporters are encouraged to get behind us financially by joining as a signed up member of our club.

HEIDELBERG GOLF CLUB DIVISION 3 ST MARY’S Another big weekend for St Mary’s Netball & Football club with the three mens teams at home for the second time this season.

TODAY: A great opportunity for us all to enjoy a full day of football and get together in the clubroom too for post-match drinks. SOCIAL: Don’t forget to get your tickets for the upcoming Poker night on the 18th May! This event has traditionally been a major fundraiser for our club, so let’s keep up the support and get together for a fun night. Please contact Evan Butterworth or Myles Guldon for tickets. Further details are available on our club facebook page. FOOTBALL: Round 5 proved to a tough round for many of our teams, except our reserves and the women’s football team who had a very convincing win against the VU Western Spurs. The men seniors lost a tough encounter against Panton Hill, whilst the under19s went down in a close game to Northcote Nark. NETBALL: Our Netballers also faced some tough competition with losses across the board and we look

MERNDA Six wins from six senior games. A huge effort from

everyone at the club – congratulations to all.

SENIORS: Probably lucky to win. I think Lalor showed that they’re quite a good stoppage team and took advantage of the fact we had a few missing in the midfield after we kicked the first six. It was disappointing we were unable to convert a 41-point lead into a big win. But Lalor have fought hard this season, save for one bad game. Joshy, Brayden and Golledge were our best performers. RESERVES: After a really sloppy and odd three quarters, which included a head count, we broke through with nine final quarter goals to win easily. Garra kicked four and Stav kicked three, and those two, along with Arcus and Lofty, were very good. UNDER-19: A good win against an underhanded Mill Park. We eventually kicked away in the last quarter, with Nicolas Aleksovski kicking four last quarter goals. Seriously, he just knows where the goals are, it’s unreal. A good win which puts us in the four. 46

forward to regrouping this week and getting back on track. LADIES LUNCHEON: Another event to mark on the calendar is our annual Ladies Luncheon on Saturday 2nd June. Always a fun day and we look forward to an even bigger event this year, with the addition of our senior women’s team. Separate details will be posted on our Facebook page.

NETBALL: Two very good wins. Mernda 1 debuted their new dresses and beat Bundoora quite convincingly, 37-19, and Mernda 2 got over Keon Park 33-24 to go top of the ladder! WOMEN’S: A huge win against La Trobe Uni to create some history, with the girls winning by 55 points for their very first win! Well done to the girls on such a momentous occasion. DEMONS CLUB: Our next home game sees us hosting a Pizza and Pasta day for all Demons Club members in the clubrooms on 26 May against Reservoir. THIS WEEKEND: So much on. 1st vs 2nd in both seniors and reserves. Our netballers take on Laurimar and Heidelberg West respectively. Women’s play Eltham at Eltham. Let’s do the six out of six thing again, that was fun.

HEIDELBERG GOLF CLUB DIVISION 3 SOUTH MORANG After a week off for the senior men and reserves, we return to play at Heidelberg West.

SENIORS: We did uncover two more talented youngsters in Blake Fitzgerald and Josh Renehan against Reservoir. Both under 17 boys handled the task well, with both kicking goals in the game. Well done boys and also to senior coach Gary Hall who has a knack of uncovering our talent. WOMEN’S: Our senior women also had the week off. They play against Montmorency this Friday night. Good luck ladies! UNDER-19: Great to see our under-19 lads get the points last week and they are looking to build on that going forward. JUNIORS: Our junior teams continue to develop and numbers are very strong for both the boys and girls. Good luck to all our junior sides this weekend in the first matches following the grading rounds.

HEIDELBERG WEST Congratulations go out to all who played for the Heidelberg West Hawks last week with a clean sweep in all competitions. NETBALL: The weekend started off on the right foot when our reserve grade netballers turned the tables Thomastown, who were too strong for the girls the previous week. With some changes in positions and the return of captain Ebony Taylor the young Hawks pulled away towards the end of the game to win by four goals. Better players included Taylor, Wilson, Moore and Chloe Shanahan. The seniors continued the winning ways taking on Montmorency in their first game since promotion into Section 7. In a fantastic match the teams were separated by a solitary goal in the end, the Hawks victorious. Another standout performance from Melissa Halton against a much taller opponent was one of the highlights with all other girls performing well. The junior netballers took the court at Reservoir Secondary College and showed that they could continue the winning streak with all teams taking the points in the U11s, U13s 48

NETBALL: We had one of four wins with our netballers last Friday and hope to improve on that this coming week. SOCIAL NEWS: Our Michael Voss Day on Saturday May 26 has got the whole club buzzing. Still tickets available for anyone that is interested in attending. THE CLUB: Get down and support the Lions when you can and be part of the family. GO LIONS!

then the U15s. Top job girls. RESERVES: Reserves coach Michael Missen appeared Saturday morning after being on his death bed the day before to steer the reserves juggernaut home to a grinding victory. Missen, struggling with lethargy all day, said he was impressed by his team finding a way to get the win despite not playing their best football. Better players included Z.M.P, Gieser, Ferg and Amor. With three wins on the board and players returning from injury Missen finds himself in a good position with some depth to choose from. SENIORS: The winless seniors were desperate to turn a sluggish start to the season around and shaped up to Reservoir at Heidelberg Park. Bolstered by the return of strong bodies Dan Bailey and Luke McKenna, the Hawks lead at every change as the Mustangs were no match for the Hungry Hawks. Promoted new player Dylan Hayes made a seamless transition from reserves to seniors with a couple of early goals. His forward pressure also proving a handful for the opposition backs. The Hawks winning easily by 10 goals. Best: Brad Moore, Hayes, McKenna and Big Boy.

ANZ NFNL WOMEN’S - Round 5 Review Round 5 of the ANZ NFNL Women’s competition had a huge impact on the shape of the ladders across the three divisions. VU Western Spurs leaped into third on the Division 1 ladder with a 7.4 (46) to 1.1 (7) win over Darebin. After a hotly contested first half, the Spurs built a 15-point lead heading into the main break. A creative snap in the goal square from Shannon Egan in the third quarter gave the Falcons a much-needed spark, but the Spurs held strong in defence from that point onwards. A Stacey Smith conversion from the pocket in the final quarter put the finishing touches on a great day for the Spurs. Brittany Wunhym and Danielle Mazzocca were best afield for the Spurs, while Tennille Thomas and Danielle Violato stood tall for the Falcons. Keilor returned to the winners list, defeating Diamond Creek Women’s 12.14 (86) to 1.1 (7). An early Creekers goal via Sarah Mcmaster looked to have them on the right track before Keilor showcased their attacking prowess and proved to be too strong. Sarah Wright and Gemma Wright continued their stunning form for Keilor, while Courtney Ugle and Emma Fraser played their roles for the Creekers. Bendigo continued its winning ways with a 15.25 (115) to 0.1 (1) away win over Whitehorse. Dominating the first quarter with 13 scoring opportunities, Bendigo only managed to convert two of those into goals and took a 22-point lead into quarter time. The flood of forward line entries eventually garnered Bendigo more goals, and they ran away with the match. Olivia Mcevoy was fantastic for Bendigo and Andrea Walsh added another seven goals to her competition leading tally of 19. Jacinta Turner and Morgan Khan were the best performing Colts. In Division 2, the VU Western Spurs rebounded from last week’s loss with a 6.15 (51) to 3.2 (20) win over Darebin. Two opening quarter goals to Jessica Heath gave the Spurs an ideal start and a 15-point lead by quarter time. A scintillating running goal from Kristin Stensholt in the second quarter switched the momentum back the Falcons way, but the Spurs were able to quell the Falcons charge with a goal of their own and keep their opposition at arm’s length for the rest of the match. Emma Taylor was valuable for the Spurs and Emma Mcintyre and Jessica Maddox were great for the Falcons. West Preston-Lakeside kept its spotless record intact, securing a 5.6 (36) to 3.5 (23) victory over La Trobe University. After controlling much of first

term, La Trobe converted only 1.5 and their fourpoint quarter time lead could have been larger. With the door left ajar, the Roosters kicked the next three goals of the match and took a 16-point lead into the main break. La Trobe hit back in the third term however, converting two goals in a row to close the Roosters’ lead to just six points. Not be outdone, the Roosters responded once again to secure the only goal of the final quarter and lock away another win. Coaches MVP leader Teresa Cassar produced another excellent display for the Roosters and Stephanie Castagnini was great again for La Trobe. Montmorency made it two wins on the trot with a 7.12 (54) to 2.1 (13) win over Laurimar. Off to a flying start with three first-quarter goals, the Magpies were too hard for the Power to catch from that point. The crucial win sees the Magpies jump from sixth place to third on the ladder in a tight season. Sian Capito kicked four of the Magpies seven goals in an exciting display and Ellie Koiker was the Power’s best player for a second week running. In Division 3, St Mary’s secured an important four points with a 4.8 (32) to 0.0 (0) win over VU Western Spurs. The Burra came out with a point to prove in the second versus third battle and fired away two opening quarter goals to take a 13-point lead into the first break. They then built on their lead during the remaining three quarters. Jessica Hardy and Stephanie Trkulja were the winning side’s best, while Molly Moloney and Kirsten Pocock stood out for the Spurs. The win sees the Burra move into second position. Bundoora continued its dominant season with an 8.11 (59) to 1.0 (6) win over Eltham. The Bulls carried their amazing form with them to Eltham and held strong defensively, while attacking superbly once again and sit a game clear on top of the table. Brittany Del Romano had plenty of the footy and Amy Callaway kicked five goals for the Bulls. Krystal Cullinan and Jacki White tired hard for the Panthers. Mernda secured its much deserved first win in women’s football, defeating La Trobe 9.9 (63) to 1.2 (8). After taking a 26-point lead into the main break, Mernda carried their momentum into the second half and proved that they are a difficult team to stop once they are up and running. Michelle Kendall kicked four goals and Lavina Ovalau added three of her own to Mernda’s tally, while Ashlee Tierney and Tess O’Brien battled hard for La Trobe. WWW. NFNL. ORG. AU

NETBALL News Section 1 – North Heidelberg 1 vs South Morang 1 North Heidelberg gradually pulled away from South Morang to score an impressive win in Round 5 action of Section 1 netball. The game started with North Heidelberg’s GS Rebecca Colwell missing her first shot on goal before settling and nailing the second. Both teams fumbled with the ball in the cold stadium during the opening minutes, causing turnover after turnover before North Heidelberg found their rhythm. Bulldogs GK Kristie Parks and Lions GK Olivia Pels shone for both teams in the first quarter taking impressive intercepts to set their sides up for goals. South Morang GS Mahalia Rank played well, scoring 10 goals from a range of distances with ease to keep her team close behind North Heidelberg at the end of the first quarter. The second quarter saw South Morang move their WA Tayla Hardiman into GA. Hardiman was quick in the circle, finding room to score and pass off to Rank who was still shooting well despite missing a few long shots. North Heidelberg were careful with WA Emma Williamson and C Stacey Parks moving around the circle edge well to feed the ball into their shooters GA Kate Butler and GS Colwell, who were more comfortable closer to the ring rather than risking longer shots. The Bulldogs upped their defensive pressure throughout the court, causing usually accurate South Morang C Michelle Millhouse to throw the ball to space, with none of her teammates able to provide an option within three seconds. North Heidelberg’s ability to apply pressure all over the court caused South Morang to slip up on the basics and by the end of the half the Bulldogs were in the lead by 10 goals. The Lions rearranged their shooting circle again in the third term after losing the second quarter by eight goals. Karli Burns moved into GS after having the second quarter off and worked her way around the circle well, despite tight defensive work from the Bulldogs. South Morang continued to feel the pressure from North Heidelberg as GD Jessica Dao took crucial intercepts that allowed her teammates to work the 54

ball into the safe hands of their shooters. South Morang’s GD Paige Donker also played extremely well, chasing after the ball to take intercepts, however, her teammates were unable to make the connections into their shooters. Despite the scores reflecting North Heidelberg’s commanding performance the Lions started to find space and break free in the final few minutes of the third term to make the game feel closer than it was. The final quarter began with South Morang still down by 10 goals, however, they were moving the ball better than they had been all game. Unfortunately for the Lions the Bulldogs maintained a high level. North Heidelberg continued to make the most of the centre passes and the shooting duo of Butler and Colwell remained calm under pressure. South Morang’s WD Abbey Cooper and WA Lauren O’Hehir, both had good quarters and were able to find space and lead to the ball which allowed for South Morang to make the transition from defence into attack better. After the first six minutes of play, South Morang managed to cut down North Heidelberg’s lead to five and were looking dangerous, however, the Bulldogs continued to stay calm on the court taking their time with the ball to ensure it landed in the right hands. As the Lions started to look like they could come back, they started to rush with the ball which in turn created errors and within a couple of minutes they’d allowed the Bulldogs to pull away by seven. Turnovers and missed goals from both teams saw the ball fly back and forth across the court, before North Heidelberg settled down again and pushed themselves out to a nine-goal lead with four minutes remaining. Bulldogs defenders Ebony Ellis, Dao and Kristie Parks kept close to their opponents making sure they felt pressure with their passing and shooting up until the end of the match forcing South Morang to fumble their way through the final few minutes. In the end, North Heidelberg’s ability to stay calm when faced with a possible South Morang comeback allowed them to extinguish the Lions’ flame to win the game by 14 goals. FINAL SCORE: North Heidelberg 1 (61) def South Morang 1 (47)

NETBALL News Section 2 – St Mary’s 1 vs Ivanhoe 1 Ivanhoe managed to stay in control despite what

looked like a last quarter comeback from St Mary’s to win its Round 5 match in Section 2. St Mary’s started the game with the centre pass, however, Ivanhoe GD Lauren Henderson was quick to take an intercept to swing the momentum her team’s way. It was a nervous start for Ivanhoe GS Ella Shannon who was hesitant to shoot early. After some back and forth with the ball between teams Ivanhoe GA Leanna Sartori scored the first goal of the match. St Mary’s WD Simona Gruevski stole possession away from Ivanhoe which resulted in her teammate GS Biljana Cvijetic scoring their first goal. It was the start of an outstanding game for Gruevski who took intercept after intercept throughout the game. The first quarter was close with both teams making passing errors, however, Ivanhoe capitalised on St Mary’s errors the most, resulting in a five-goal lead at the end of the quarter. In the opening of the second quarter, St Mary’s managed to turn the ball over on Ivanhoe’s centre pass, once again resulting in GS Cvijetic nailing a long shot. With St Mary’s starting the second quarter a lot quicker, it was Ivanhoe GK Eliza Gorman-Jacobs taking a crucial intercept in defence that set up her side to stay ahead. Ivanhoe’s shooters Shannon and Sartori started to gain more confidence as the game progressed thanks to well-placed passes from their C Olivia Marian and WA Maddison Seeley. Although they started the quarter well, a series of errors by St Mary’s saw them fade away and fall behind by 10 goals. The third quarter was much better for St Mary’s with their shooters finding more space close to the ring to shoot goals with confidence. Ivanhoe’s shooters remained calm under pressure, continuing to push their team ahead despite St Mary’s improved defensive pressure, with Gruevski moved into GD and GK Nicole Tamburini getting her distance better over the ball to give away fewer obstructions. The increased defensive pressure from St Mary’s was hurt by a few missed shots on goal, however, the team had lifted immensely compared to their last quarter

by Stephanie Smarrelli

and despite being down by 12 goals at the end of the quarter, something was building. St Mary’s started the last term quicker and more accurate than previously. Their GA Nakita Lastrina had her team’s best quarter, scoring all nine of their goals making it their best of the match. In defence, Gruevski and Tamburini worked well together to confuse the space in the goal circle, creating multiple turnovers by intercepting and rebounding as pressure mounted on Ivanhoe’s shooters. St Mary’s managed to keep Ivanhoe goalless for the first six minutes of the quarter, trimming their lead down to five. In the final few minutes, St Mary’s shooters were unable to follow the ball in once they’d let it go towards the ring and this allowed for Ivanhoe’s Henderson and Gorman-Jacobs to rebound the ball enough to keep their team in possession and ahead. Aware of the time ticking away, Ivanhoe reignited to battle for every ball and rebound as St Mary’s missed shots on goal and the clock ticking became their downfall. St Mary’s showed promise in the last quarter and kept Ivanhoe to only four goals, however, it was not enough to take control and win the game. FINAL SCORE: Ivanhoe 1 (33) def St Mary’s 1 (27)

NORTHERN Knights News NORTHERN KNIGHTS GIRLS MAINTAIN PERFECT START

by Tara Murray and Tim Michell

Northern Knights’ undefeated run has continued with two wins in the space of a week in the TAC Cup girls’ competition. The Knights defeated the Greater Western Victoria Rebels on Wednesday last week, before backing it up on Sunday by defeating Oakleigh Chargers. On Wednesday, Northern had to fight off a gallant Greater Western Victoria Rebels, booting four goals to one after half time to clinch a 7.11 (53) to 6.1 (37) victory. Fast finishes have been a trademark of the Knights’ success this year, producing a four-goal last term in their Round 3 win over Sandringham and kicking five goals after the final break in their Round 1 victory against Dandenong. Skipper Maddy Brancatisano has been brilliant, named in Northern’s best three times in four games, while ruck Neve O’Connor has enjoyed a strong start. Midfielder Ellie McKenzie, the younger sister of TAC Cup player and AFL draft prospect Tom, has been one of the finds of the season after debuting in Round 3. After overcoming injury, McKenzie has shown her quality in the club’s wins over Sandringham and GWV. On Sunday, the Knights overcame a mid-game slump to kick away for a 14.4 (88) to 5.7 (37) win over Oakleigh Chargers. Knights coach Marcus Abney-Hastings said his players were continuing to stand strong when required. “They [Chargers] kicked five unanswered goals in the third quarter,” he said. “We were challenged, like every other week, and came through and kicked seven unanswered goals. “It was a good performance from the team – they showed a lot of character.” Abney-Hastings attributed the good finishing to a combination of a high-performance program and the girls’ desire to improve. “A lot of it comes down to their drive and personal desire,” he said. “It helps when you have good players and leaders that work hard and persevere – it’s a true reflection of the work the girls have done.” Abney-Hastings said Sarah Sansonetti and Ellie McKenzie (four goals) were the best. 60

McKenzie, who played in the midfield, kicked three of her goals in the final quarter. Tiarne Shell, Jemma McCarthy and Malaya Rodezno made their debuts on Sunday and didn’t look out of place. Abney-Hastings said the club would continue to give players opportunities and shots at different positions. “It is great to get wins and be competitive, but it’s about developing the players in different positions,” he said. “We’ll continue to take them out of their comfort zones.” Despite his side sitting 5-0, Abney-Hastings said the Knights would not be getting complacent. The Knights are undefeated, as are the Geelong Falcons. “We’ve got some good teams coming up,” AbneyHastings said. “We play Geelong and the Murray Bushrangers, who are two of the best sides. We’re under no illusions where we are at. We are going to continue to develop.” The Northern Knights’ boys team slipped to a 0-2 start to the season, following a loss to Oakleigh Chargers on Sunday. The Knights’ straight kicking couldn’t quite punish the Chargers’ missed opportunities in front of goal, going down by 25 points. Oakleigh could have won by a lot more than the 25-point margin suggested, but 22 behinds kept the Knights well within the game. Northern made the most of opportunities in front of goal, kicking 12.3, but Oakleigh managed to find the big sticks in the final term and run-away victors 13.22 (100) to 12.3 (75).

In the Under-16 Girls, Diamond Creek Blue took out a comfortable win over West Preston at J.E Moore Park, while Diamond Creek Red couldn’t follow their path with a tough loss to Boro Bolts at Anthony Beale Reserve. Panton Hill’s effort was rewarded with a win after a well fought game over Hurstbridge away, with the help of Elee Newman and Rebekah Cullen-Hall both kicking three goals and playing a well-rounded game. Research defeated Kilmore booting seven goals to one after quarter time to break way for a comfortable win, with the help of Sheridan Blizzard’s three goal performance. Eltham, South Morang and Wallan all took out comfortable Round 4 wins. In the Under 15 Boys, eight games were played. This involved South Morang taking the closest win by five points over Montmorency after a solid performance by both teams. Despite South Morang being down 23 points going into the fourth quarter, they did not give in – scoring 4.5 to 0.1 to take a great win. Kilmore took a tight 13-point win over Whittlesea at Whittlesea Showgrounds. Dayne Middleton scored eight of the winning side’s 11 goals to get Kilmore over the line. Mernda, Greensborough and Laurimar all took out very comfortable wins over their opponents, with Laurimar spreading their 17 goals over 11 players. Greensborough scored 29 goals spread over 14 players with Ashton Togni kicking seven goals alongside Jack Harper kicking five goals.
