All three did their bit but Collegians were too strong in the end, running out winners by two goals. Fergus Watts kicked another four to take his season’s tally to 22 while Nick Ries was probably best afield.
De La had a string of outs and met a Uni Blues side who have an imposing record at the Malvern ground. The home side hung in there however but ended up going down, also by two goals. Out on South Road, Old Brighton finally got their season going by seeing off Old Ivanhoe while Old Trinity made it two on the trot, downing Uni Blacks at Melbourne University in a close one. Thus Collegians are now clear on top, ahead of the unlikely Old Scotch unit, while De La are the only winless team.
In B Section, St Bernards’ great start to the year continued with a ten goal thumping of Marcellin. Other winners were Old Essendon and Old Camberwell while St Kevins finally broke their duck after a couple of heartbreakers, downing Old Carey in a low scoring encounter. Caulfield plays Old Haileybury at Sportscover Arena tomorrow.
