Round 6 of the Premier C Men’s competition delivered yet another set of exciting games.

After suffering consecutive defeats by significant margins in the past two weeks, Mazenod aimed to make a strong comeback against the second-placed Old Camberwell Grammarians. They went into halftime trailing by just a single point.

The second half of the game was fiercely contested, and with only two minutes remaining, the margin remained unchanged. Riley Verbi drew a high tackle 50 meters out from the goal and strategically used up the clock with a shot on goal. It was at this crucial moment that Harry Laukens took a remarkable goal-line mark off Verbi’s kick, effectively running down the clock before sealing the victory.

Meanwhile, Lachie Powell of Camberwell displayed his exceptional goalkicking dominance by slotting 3 goals throughout the match.

After a spirited fight in the first three quarters following their bye, Hampton Rovers found themselves trailing the undefeated table-toppers, PEGS, by just 1 point at three-quarter time. However, PEGS proved their dominance in the competition during the final quarter, emerging as 13-point victors and extending their undefeated streak.

Old Carey, needing a victory after last week’s draw, secured a much-needed 37-point win over Marcellin. With this win, Old Carey moved up to the middle of the ladder and balanced their win-loss record. Unfortunately for Marcellin, their struggles continued after their incredible win last week, as they now find themselves at the bottom of the ladder. They will need to urgently turn their season around after their upcoming bye.

Mitchell Wooffindin played a pivotal role for Carey, impressing with 4 goals. Additionally, Nicholas Brewin, Lachlan Godden, Shaun Tyquin, and Lachlan Rush each contributed 3 goals in this high-scoring match.

At three-quarter time, Parkdale held a narrow 20-point lead over Ormond. However, in the final quarter, Parkdale demonstrated their dominance by preventing Ormond from scoring a single goal, ultimately securing a commanding 41-point victory, and solidifying their position in the top four on the ladder.

Old Ivanhoe Grammarians enjoyed a bye this week and will eagerly anticipate returning to action in Round 7 against the Hampton Rovers.

Round 7 promises several exciting matchups to look forward to, including the clash between PEGS and Old Carey. Old Carey will aim to climb the ladder, while PEGS seeks to maintain their unbeaten streak.
