Collegians match report after their 77 point win over Old Scotch 

We hosted Old Scotch on Friday night under the lights at the Trott. I wouldn’t say it was a balmy night by any stretch but it was far more pleasant than our last foray, that’s for sure. We had to win to make the four and that’s what we did, by 77 points. Now you may have heard that “the Cards” rested a few topliners and played a couple of kids that have never troubled a “Gillette” but frankly it doesn’t matter. You can’t control the opposition, we knew what we had to do and we did it. [Read more]

Old Carey match report after their 23 point 1st Semi Final win over Old Melburnians 

The seniors game was played at Sportscover Arena (VAFA HQ) and as seems to always be the case come finals, there was a strong 5 goal north wind blowing straight down the ground. The boys trained well during the week and had a light session on Saturday ahead of a meeting and the announcement of the final team. Based on match ups, Jacob Murphy was very stiff to miss out having played all season, it was a tough call, one Coxy didn’t enjoy delivering. Things did change overnight as Matthew Laidlaw was still feeling the effects of hamstring tightness and withdrew for the team, enabling Jacob to be called up. Whilst Matthew would be a huge loss the boys were thrilled to have Jacob back in the team. [Read More]

Players tested one another out in the early stages as both sides endeavoured to gain the ascendancy.
