Round Two: Men's Football Preview

Match of the round in Division 1 sees the two biggest first round winners coming face to face. St Pauls McKinnon will take on the Cranbourne in a battle for top spot early in the season.

Cheltenham’s tough round one loss came about due to poor conversion, and they’ll be eager to impress against a Mordialloc side who won impressively over East Malvern in the first round.

The other intriguing round 2 match up sees last year’s top side Dingley facing the Port Melbourne Colts who, despite a 52 point round one loss, actually played some pretty good football in the first round.

Bentleigh and East Malvern will each be fighting to open their 2022 account after heaving round one defeats, with East Malvern the more fancied to get the job done. Whilst a St.Kilda City team loaded with talent would be expected to defeat Springvale districts this week and remain unbeaten.

In Division 2, Skye will sit the weekend out with a bye but we still have plenty of action across the four scheduled games.

As is the case in Div 1, the top 2 face off after strong Round One victories. East Brighton downed Skye by 61 points last week and they will play host to Highett who demolished Heatheron in their opening game.

Chelsea Heights will play their first game in season 2022, coming off a bye last week. They will travel to take on Hampton Park, with the home side coming off a 78-point round one loss.

A couple of sides beaten in Round 1 will lock horns in an attempt too open their 2022 accounts when Heatherton hosts the Caulfield Bears.

In the final game of the round, Keysborough and Doveton Doves will be pushing to remain unbeaten with both sides impressive victors in the opening round.

Division 3 Southern Football League action will see four fascinating fixtures headlined by Black Rock vs Narre South.

A couple of sides that look set for good years will battle it out near the bay in a good early test of where each team is at.

The opening round’s biggest winner was Ashwood, who saluted by 155 points against South Yarra. They will atempt to back that up this week when they travel to Clayton.

Speaking of South Yarra, they will get the chance for redemption when they play their first home game of the year against Murrumbeena.

Meanwhile Endeavour Hills was also be at home for the first time when they take on Carrum Patterson Lakes.

Division 4 will see a full book of five matches with Hallam’s clash with South Mornington perhaps the most intriguing.

South Mornington were outstanding last week in crushing Hampton, whilst Hallam sent a huge statement in their thumping of Cerberus.

Cerberus will be looking to atone from that Round One horror when they travel to Frankston to face the Dolphins.

Lyndale lost a tight first round clash with Moorabbin and this week they play host to Dandenong who were another of the beaten brigade last week.

Moorabbin will play host to Doveton Eagles in a game they’d be confident of winning after a strong showing in the opening round.

Hampton’s quest for a first win of the season doesn’t get any easier as they host second placed Lyndhurst.
