Saturday, July 2, 2022
Hallam V Casey Thunder 1
Unfortunately, the Hallam Hawks were forced to forfeit this match due to low playing numbers, we look forward to seeing the Hawks back in action soon.
Frankston Dolphins 2.9-21 V East Brighton 2.1-13
Our first twist in this week’s round recap, the Frankston Dolphins with only one win secured their second one at home against the East Brighton Vampires.
The Dolphins had an impressive 11 scoring shots in comparison to the Vampires three, while nine of Frankston's attempts resulted in behinds this eventually built the foundations for their victory.
East Brighton's goal machine Brea Quinlivan only kicked one for the day, vice captain Remi Van Denderen played a tough and strong game for East Brighton.
The Vampires needed this win to move into the top four but now have a tough run against the likes of Endeavour Hills and Casey Thunder.
Frankston Dolphins are now only one win behind the Narre South Saints on the ladder, we will see these two butt heads on the 16th.
Murrumbeena 3.0-18 V Narre South Saints 3.10-28
The next chapter in division one saw the Narre South Saints overpower Murrumbeena at the Beena Arena, another big win as we get closer to the final’s series in August.
The Saints made their initial impact in the first quarter with five scoring attempts resulting in one goal, Murrumbeena struggled to hit the ground running and were scoreless in the first term.
The Saints dominated on the day and look ahead now to move their way up the ladder, coming up against Hallam and the Frankston Dolphins in rounds 13 and 14.
Lioness Ellen Block was concussed during play, we wish her a quick recovery as all signs point towards the Murrumbeena defender bouncing back soon.

Bentleigh 2.3-15 V Endeavour Hills 11.13-79
A sunny yet Windy day in Bentleigh set the tone for what was going to be a quick paced match between these
two sides, Bentleigh with only one player on the bench due to Illness amongst the club.
In her first game of the season Bentleigh’s Chelsea Hopper kicked the team's only two goals of the day, the Demons previously struggling to convert their efforts into scoring attempts.
Falcons captain Amanda Hancock was carried off the field with an ankle injury in the third quarter, this did not stop the fearless leader from encouraging her team from the side lines.
The Falcons have locked in their penultimate spot on the ladder, the Demons now will fight to keep their spot in the top four against Murrumbeena and Hallam.

Clayton 10.12-72 V South Yarra 1.1-7
Clayton were on the hunt for a big win against South Yarra, as we get closer to the August finals the importance of percentage grows.
The Yarra’s kicked their only goal off the boot of Michelle Durrant in the third quarter, Tash Turton giving the game all she could with a great performance at Meade reserve.
Steph Sandoval kicked six goals for the Claydies, with another four from the rest of the team Clayton racked up an impressive haul of ten.
Clayton are now third on the ladder after their fifth win of the season, South Yarra have still only recorded one win in the 2022 season.
Skye 3.4-22 V Casey Thunder (2) 7.6-48
Skye hosted the Casey Thunder at home in what was to be an important match to both clubs, the Thunder looking to hold their spot on top of the ladder.
A speedy Tabatha Jones kicked two of the bombers’ goals, unfortunately this wasn’t enough to stay on top of the Casey Thunder.
The Thunder were consistent and dominant throughout the day, keeping Skye away from their forward line while working with their own midfielders to move the ball their way.
Skye currently sit on the fifth spot of the division two ladder, there is an opportunity for them to find a spot in the top four but several crucial wins are needed to start their finals campaign.
Moorabbin/ St Paul's McKinnon 0.0-0 V Lyndale 11.9-75
Another luckless day at McKinnon reserve for the Kanga-Dogs, the Pumas running away with a solid win over this young side.
Small forward Alesha Thorne kicked four for Lyndale, the team sharing the rest of their goals amongst a total seven goal scorers.
Lyndale have earned themselves a very strong percentage which will help in their attempts to solidify their spot in the top four.
Moorabbin/St.Paul’s McKinnon are still yet to earn their first victory of the 2022 season, while not a great start to their inaugural year they continue to hold their heads high.
