2022 Round 5 Report (Football and Netball)


Final Score:

Springvale Districts 11.12-78

Bentleigh 7.8-50


Good fortunes saw us come away with the points last week with the result over turned, with that we headed to Springvale to make it 3 in a row.

Up against it kicking against the wind first up we came out firing kicking 3 goals to 1 in the first quarter. We backed it up in the second quarter again kicking 3 goals to 1 taking a four goal lead into half time with our tails up.

Unfortunately for us, the tide switch in the second half. We dropped off and Springvale lifted to square the game up with scores level at 3qrt time. Then the rain settled in making it a scrappy affair without a goal kicked in the last quarter, Springvale managed to kick 5 behinds though to take the win with the scores finishing 6.13.49 to 7.2.44.

Aussie Rosenthal clunked marks at will to be amongst the best, with Timm Black, Gal and Smitty stand outs as well. Robbo also finished with 3 goals. To take it up to one of the tops teams in the comp was outstanding especially for such a young side, but we know we let one slip here and will learn use it going forward. Onto St Kilda City next week.


Top of the table Sandown at Home.

Bigger bodies and older heads got the jump on us early and we were never able to bridge the gap all day. Boys never gave up and threw everything at it. 4 goals fair reflection of where we are currently.

Bentleigh 4.9.33 vs Sandown 7.15. 57
