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.
