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.
