Senior Men’s Football
Bentleigh (11.10.76) Vs. St.Pauls McKinnon (12.09.87) | McKinnon Reserve
Bentleigh tracked down the road to play local rival St. Paul’s. The doggies had the better of us early kicking the first 5 goals, whilst keeping us goalless.
Although we fought back hard the early deficit was too much of a start to give against very good Opposition who continually managed to wrestle back the momentum each time we got a run on.
We eventually went down by 11 points.
A disappointing result for us and credit to St. Pauls who were too good for us on the day.
Development Men’s Football
Bentleigh (10.07.67) Vs. St.Paul’s McKinnon (07.05.47) | McKinnon Reserve
Great win for the development team after our enforced break!
With a few players back from injury we had arguably our best team in and managed to get the job done!
After a bit of a rusty start we got the game on our terms and our 3rd qtr put paid to St Paul’s. They came at us in the last qtr but we remained composed and got ourselves the W.
The first step in the right directions towards making the top 5 and finals this year. Look forward to backing it up against East Malvern next week!
Under Nineteens Red
Bentleigh (12.06.78) Vs. St.Kilda City (04.08.32) | Jack Barker Oval
Under 19s Red played under lights Friday night at Cheltenham. We knew they would throw a lot at us physically and that is exactly what they did, wet conditions made it hard contested footy, the 2nd qtr they got on top of us around the stoppages and 50/50s at ground level. However we responded well in the 2nd half, getting back on top in all areas of the game. Our fitness proved too strong with a 46 point win.
Under Nineteens Blue
Bentleigh (13.19.97) Vs. Narre South Saints (00.01.01) | Strathaird Reserve
The boys were on from the opening bounce and were seeking our first win on the road. We performed strongly in all aspects of our game and put together a fantastic 4 quarter effort which kept Narre goalless. Jordy Keen shone in the ruck, Gary Kruger kicked 4 goals playing his first game for the blues, and as a forward, and the back six were solid all game led by Tully Foot.
