Under 19 Round Review

ROUND 8 REVIEW
Oakleigh Districts 10.18-78 defeated Bentleigh 2.6-18
The Demons were no match for last year’s premiers, who jump started their 60-point defeat with a 22-0 lead at the first break.
After a slow start, Bentleigh generated a response in the second term, kicking 1.2 to Oakleigh’s 1.5.
However, Oakleigh left the home side far in the distance after half time and led by their best Brett Crane (three goals), dominated the second half of the match – booting 6.9 to 1.4.
Lachlan Kiely was best for Bentleigh, and Jacob Garufi-Miles and Dylan Duffield starred alongside Crane for the victors.
St Kilda City 8.5-53 defeated Parkmore / Springvale Districts 4.4-28
St Kilda City remain unscathed in the Under 19s competition, knocking off Parkmore / Springvale by 25 points at Springvale Reserve.
Ubil Chol was a highlight for the winners in the 1 vs 3 clash, next to Matthew McNaughton who added another two to his goal scoring lead in the Under 19s competition (29 goals).
Endeavour Hills 14.8-92 defeated East Brighton 8.7-55
Endeavour Hills bounced off a tough loss to Oakleigh Districts in Round 7, finishing 37 points above East Brighton at Barry Simon Reserve.
Nine individual goal kickers sealed the deal for the home side, including one in a best on ground performance from Scott Myers.
Liam Menhennitt was best for East Brighton, who despite a loss, will be looking to back up a positive scoring effort when they meet Bentleigh in Round 8.
Dingley 15.9-99 defeated Keysborough 2.6-18
The second placed Dingoes showed a cold reception to their visitors, running over Keysborough by 81 points in a convincing home performance.
The end result was difficult to envision with both sides sitting on 2.2 at quarter time, but once the Dingoes kicked away they didn’t look back – piling on the points increasingly at each break.
Luke Simmonds was a highlight for the winners, alongside Taj Lewis. Troy Brimble and Remmi-Faulker Wood were also damaging with four goals apiece.
Best efforts from Keysborough’s Riet Pal did not go unnoticed, next to teammate Dion Elefantis who kicked one goal.
