Old Ivanhoe played out a high scoring classic in their 18-point come-from-behind win over Oakleigh at Chelsworth Park. With 38 goals kicked for the match, the crowd was issued with a free-flowing spectacle as both sides’ big forwards worked overtime. Bradley Thompson and Robert Glavas kicked four goals each for the Hoes, while Aaron Cloke (5) and Trevor Bromley (4) led the way for the Krushers. It was an important win for the Hoes as they snapped a two-game losing streak.

Williamstown CYMS came from behind to record one their best wins in recent history, running over the top of Old Haileyburians by 30 points. Trailing by 13 points at the last break, the CY’s piled on nine goals to two in the final term in what was a sterling rendition of comeback football. Nick Ebinger put on a clinic for the CY’s by kicking six goals and increasing his season tally to 53.

Monash Blues extended their winning streak to five with a 57-point win against PEGS at PEGS Sporting Fields earlier today. The Blues outclassed PEGS in most facets of the game, with 29 scoring shots to seven indicative of their dominance. Alfred Oppy ended his day with three goals in a best-on-ground performance. In similar fashion to Marcellin last week, the Blues fall to second on the ladder despite their significant victory.

Marcellin regained top spot on the Premier C ladder following their monster 158-point win against Therry Penola at John Pascoe Fawkner Reserve. The Eagles held the Lions goalless for the entire match in a stunning display of offence meets defence. Jonathon Bortolotto was the main recipient of a dominant Eagles midfield brigade, posting four of his side’s 25 majors. No bests were identified for the Lions, who now own the worst percentage in Premier C.

Peninsula bounced back from last week’s disappointing loss to PEGS with a 56-point win against Old Camberwell at Gordon Barnard Reserve. Leading by 31 points at the main break, the Pirates never eased up as they added another five goals to one in the second half. Alex Wood kicked two and was named best-on-ground for the Pirates.
