U19 Section 2

Only three sides remain undefeated. The excitement around the Friars camp is building after another comprehensive win over the weekend. This time it was against Collegians, the boys in blue and yellow cutting their opposition to ribbons in their 71-point triumph. Jason Spencer starred again kicking four goals, and the score line ultimately flattered the Collegians at the final siren. Old Ivanhoe held off multiple rallies from St Bedes/Mentone to record a stirring 18-point win. After stumbling out of the blocks the Tigers lifted their work rate in the second term to almost square the ledger at the half time siren. To their credit the Hoes squad held firm and in the end were more deserving of the four points when the final siren blew. Anthony Stenta was the best on the day for the victors, in what could prove to be a season defining win. Other results for the round included Parkdale holding off a fast finishing Fitzroy to record a 22-point win, Old Brighton were too good for Mazenod, finishing all over the Nodders in the fourth quarter to win by 25-points, and Marcellin ground out a 21-point victory against a wasteful Caulfield Grammarians outfit.

U19 Section 3

Ormond kicked off round two at Gordon Barnard Reserve with a 59-point victory over Old Camberwell. The Monders were always in control after a seven goal to one first half. Dimitri Fasoulis took best on ground honours and Matthew Perry chimed in with three majors for the winners in what was a fantastic response after last weeks humiliating defeat against Old Geelong. A rampant Old Xaverians gave St Bernards a good old fashioned hiding on Saturday afternoon. The Xavs were clearly keen to get on the board in 2015 and did so in style, with Ted Watkins dominating from the outset on his way to a nine-goal demolition job of the Snowdogs. Harrison Kelly continued his fantastic start to the season booting four majors of his own as the Xavs ran out 100-point winners. Elsewhere, Hampton Rovers brought Old Geelong back down to earth in a hard fought 15-point win, and Old Carey kept their unbeaten record intact securing a comfortable 26-point win over Williamstown CYMS.

VAFA Colts
A see-sawing struggle between Old Paradians and Williamstown was the highlight of round two in the Colts. The Paradians got out to a handy 15-point lead by half time kicking an efficient 8.1 in front of goal. Williamstown led by 6 points at the final change and should have been further in front after completely dominating field position in the third quarter. The lack of scoreboard pressure hurt Williamstown in the end getting overrun by an agonizing 3 points. Christian White led the scorers for Old Paradians booting three goals, whilst Wade Dawson was also instrumental in the win. Ivanhoe charged home to defeat UHS-VU/Flemington in a low scoring but thrilling 2-point win on Saturday morning. A go-ahead Cameron Simpson goal in the final minute of the game capped off a memorable day for the Hoes as they unfurled the 2014 U/19 premiership flag after the final siren. In other results a sharpshooting University Blues added to the misery of a lackluster Bulleen Templestowe side running out 185-point winners, La Trobe easily accounted for Parkside at home by 80-points, and Mazenod defeated St Bernards by 108-points.
