There were close encounters and some surprise upsets in Division 3 on ANZAC Day.
West Brunswick are looking like the surprise packet of the section in 2015. The Division 4 champs are on the rise and they took no prisoners when they beat Aquinas on their own patch by 40 points. The Magpies were brilliant all day, restricting the Bloods to just five goals on a torrid afternoon. Muscat booted four goals for the victorious Pies are are undefeated after three.
Hawthorn are on the board in Division 3 thanks to their 33 point home win over Power House at Rathmines Road. The Hawks will be relieved to get their year going, whilst Power House will laud the five goals from Luke Stubbs, but will lament this as a match that got away from them.
La Trobe Uni showed little sympathy for Glen Eira as they used the size and space of their home deck to its full advantage in their 76 point win over the Saints. Mitchell Pearson was the star with five goals for the red and blacks who are on the board in 2015.
Four goals from Tom Kennedy and a sustained effort from the Razorbacks midfield wasn’t quite enough to get them over the line against Emmaus St Leos. The Animals defeated the home side Swinburne Uni by 23 points at James Reserve as Chris Beluszar was again the highlight booting seven goals. The Animals join West Brunwsick as the only two undefeated teams in the section.
UHS-VU shook off the disappointment of last week to record a thrilling four point win over Eley Park at Brens oval. Scores were level at both half and three quarter time, but the home side were more accurate in an enthralling final term, booting 3.1 to the Sharks’ 2.3. In an interesting twist to the ladder, UHS-VU is the only side in the section with two wins to their name.
