Round 3 Recap

All four football sides came away with the four points for the first time this season.

It was a great day that started with the thirds game at Power Reserve against Doveton Eagles. History suggested that our boys should have controlled the game and come away with a convincing win and that was precisely how it played out. The Doveton boys produced some competitive patches, but in the end our thirds guys were too strong and ran out 195-point winners. Jarryd Karadeas was best on ground getting plenty of touches and kicking four goals.

Meanwhile, over at Roy Dore Reserve in Carrum, the under 19s boys were off to a flying start in their re-match against last week's opponent, Carrum-Patterson Lakes. A four goal to none first term helped set our boys up. CPL did well to peg the lead back to two goals at the last change, but the composure on display in the final term allowed our boys to finish up 26-point winners. Brendan Weighell was best on ground in the first under 19s win for the season.

Back at Power Reserve, the reserves took to the field and put in a performance was reminiscent of their best in 2014. Chris Smith fired his team up before the first bounce and the team never looked back. Matt Poore was sensational up forward, kicking 14 goals, while Nick Webb and Mick Lindley controlled the midfield. The reserves remain undefeated after three rounds with a convincing 173-point win.

As the final note of the Last Post rang out, the seniors huddled for final instructions before taking their positions. Doveton had been competitive in the opening few round so we knew we wer ein for a tough battle. Doveton opened the scoring with a quick goal, but the game was very much in our control from then on. The tackling pressure was relentless around the ball. Young forward, Ryan McConville is showing signs of his abilities kicking six majors for the day. Best on ground honours went to Adam Beness who was excellent in the 69-point victory.

Results from other games put our seniors in second place on the ladder after three rounds.

Over at Dingley Netball Courts, netballA and B teams unfortunately went down to Springvale Districts and St Kilda City respectively. The A side lost 38-30, while the B side lost 46-17. The signs are still good with re-grading taking place this week. We expect both teams to remain in their current divisions.

With all sides going strong we expect a big turnout at Carrum Downs Rec Reserve this Saturday when all four football teams return to play home games in round 4. It will be a sensational day with the seniors and reserves taking on Murrumbeena, the under 19s battling newcomers East Brighton and the thirds opening preceedings against South Yarra.

Round 2 Recap

It was certainly a big day at Carrum Downs Rec Reserve on Saturday with all four football sides playing at home against a variety of opponents.

The day kicked off with the Thirds taking on Hallam. Our boys were strong from the outset and put on a relentless display, running out winners by 146 points. Sean Murnane took best on ground honours, playing a dominant role in the midfield and booting four goals.

The under 19s then faced off against Carrum-Patterson Lakes. It was a competitive game for the most part, but it was CPL's seven-goal first quarter that was the difference in the end. CPL ended the game with a 31-point victory. Captain, Josh Scrivano, was best on ground.

The reserves went two wins from two games when they defeated the recently relegated, Heatherton. 41 points was the difference in the end, however the reserves will rue their inaccuracy in front of goal, kicking 7.13 for the afternoon. Faisal Payenda was solid down back and was deserving of the best on ground award.

The day came to a close with the seniors notching up their first win of the season. Signs against Oakleigh Districts were solid in round 1, but it started to come toegther against Heatherton. Our players put on a high-intensity performance and started to revive the unrelenting pressure game that we grew to love in 2014. Our seniors came away with a well-deserved 72-point win. It was a good day for our captains, with Aaron Pacey taking best on ground honours with five goals.

Unfortunately on the netball front, both sides were defeated at the weekend. Both sides were competitive which is extremely promising. The A side went down to Heatherton by a single point, while the B side lost to Dandenong by 20.

Round 3 will see all of our football sides playing away for the first time this season. The seniors, reserves and thirds will all take on Doveton Eagles at Power Reserve, while the under 19s will take on Carrum-Patterson Lakes again, this time at Roy Dore Reserve.

The netball girls are both on at 12:00pm again at Dingley Netball Courts. The A side take on Springvale Districts and the B side will match up against St Kilda City.

Round 1 Recap

The Skye Football Club descended on Princes Hwy Reserve last Saturday to take on Oakleigh Districts. But not before the Thirds had their first game at home against Sandown.

The thirds looked strong in what started as a competitive clash. The cobwebs were soon brushed away and the team were able to recapture their finals form from 2014. Unfortunately for Sandown, several of their players retired from game, allowing our boys to start the year with a 122-point victory.

The Under 19s found the going a little tougher over at Princes Hwy Reserve when they took on newcomers, Oakleigh Districts. Our boys were competitive early, but the sheer size and strength of the Oakleigh Dist. kids was the difference in the end. The 19s guys fought hard but will certainly need to put in some hard yards on the training track this week in the lead up to the game against Carrum-Patterson Lakes this week. Oakleigh Districts eventually ran out 132-point winners.

The Reserves were quick to put the disappointment of the 2014 grand final behind them with a hard-fought win over Oakleigh Districts also played at Princes Hwy Reserve. Oakleigh Dist. came back late in the game, but our boys did enough to come away with a 12-point win.

The Seniors knew they were in for a tough match against Oakleigh Districts from the moment the fixture was announced. The boys had been preparing well and were ready for the challenge. Oakleigh Dist. came out firing and had achieved a three-goal lead at the first break. This lead was extended going into half time before our boys started to peg them back in the second half. Playing some inspired footy, the team were able to get iwthin a point in the final quarter before Oakleigh Dist. sealed the game with a late goal. Oakleigh Districts took the points with an 8-point win.

In a sensational start for the netballers, both teams were able to get the points at Dingley Netball Complex on Saturday. Both team played at midday. Netball A took on Bentleigh, while Netball B played Chelsea Heights. The Netball A girls defeated Bentleigh 21-26 and Netball B defeated Chelsea Heights 17-21.

No More SFL

Skye Football & Netball Club will no longer be associated with the Southern Football League.

Our club will now be a member of the Southern Football Netball League. 

Since the introduction of the netball competition, the league has experienced massive growth and seen a shift in diversity. From seven teams and one division in its first season of competition, the netball now runs 51 teams across six divisions. It is a great success story. 

League members voted on the name change at a recent special general meeting for Presidents and Secretaries.

With our club entering two teams this season, we feel very much a part of this growth and are very proud of our contribution.

Read the full story here.

The SFL has released the under 19s and third-grade fixtures for 2015 as well as the first three grading rounds for netball.

Skye will feature in both the under 19s and the thirds, as well as having two teams representing the club in the netball competition.

Round 1 will see the seniors, reserves and under 19s travel to Princes Hwy Reserve to take on Oakleigh Districts, while the thirds will begin their campaign at home against Sandown.

The netball girls will both start their season at 12pm and will be taking on Bentleigh (Div 4) and Chelsea Heights (Div 6). The netball competition will again be held at Rohan Rd Netball Complex in Dingley.

Over the season, we have seven rounds where all four football sides play at home together. That is seven out of nine home games which is a great result for the club. It should be a big year for the Bombers!
