Mazenod made light work of Caulfield Grammarians in their return to Premier C, running out 48-point victors at Glenhuntly Oval earlier today. Despite scoring on just three more occasions, the Nodders’ job was made slightly easier due to the inaccuracy of the Fields as they kicked 5.16 for the match. The Thomas boys, Nick and Rees, ran riot for the Nodders, while Louis O’Keefe kicked three goals for the Fields.

Kew continued their premiership-winning form from 2015 as they defeated Oakleigh by 52 points at Victoria Park. Leading by just six points at the half time break, the Bears piled on 11 goals to four in the second half, with Andrew Brazzale leading the charge and finishing with six majors. Last year’s Division 1 Grand Final best on ground recipient, Kyle Margaritis, was in the best for the Bears alongside Jack Delbridge and Brazzale. Aaron Cloke stood tall for the Krushers and kicked five of his side’s 13 goals.

Old Ivanhoe Grammarians completed a sensational 12-point come-from-behind victory against Marcellin this afternoon. Trailing by four goals with one quarter remaining at Marcellin College, the Hoes found an extra gear as they sent through five final quarter goals while keeping their opponents to one singular point. Michael Mitris and Liam Oliver were outstanding in their best-on-ground performances for the Hoes, while Jonathan Blanche and Peter Augustin racked it up for Marcellin.

A 12-goal to one first half has helped Peninsula claim an impressive 65-point Round One win over Ormond at E.E. Gunn Reserve. Stefan Barbour kicked nine goals in the best performance of any player throughout all sections this weekend to help his side to 21 majors for the match. Alongside Barbour, Shaun Payze snagged five and Samuel Harrison four. Reigning Rising Star winner, James Fletcher, had the ball on a string and showcased the importance of his run and carry to the Pirates’ 2016 campaign. Despite the loss, Matthew Martinov was exceptional in his 250th game for Ormond as he kicked three of his side’s nine goals.

Williamstown commenced their season positively as they defeated Old Camberwell by two goals in a hard-fought contest at Fearon Reserve. Trailing by two points with one quarter remaining, the CYs booted five goals from 10 scoring shots in the final term while allowing the Wells just three of their own. With forward line star, Nick Ebinger, playing VFL, the CYs were able to make up for his loss of goal kicking prowess as they shared the 13 majors between 10 players. Nick Adamson and Thomas Kanz combined for six goals for the Wells.
