What a day at the Hangar! For the second time this season, we had four football sides claim victory.
Round 4 started at 8:45am with the thirds taking on second-placed South Yarra. Our boys are stringing together some very impressive performances and were able to pick South Yarra apart in every quarter. The thirds remain on top of the ladder undefeated after coming away with a 115-point win. Cory Baines was best on ground with a sensational running game on the wing.
Coming off their first win last week, the under 19s were brimming with confidence. With some handy inclusions in the side, that confidence was justified. East Brighton got out to a handy lead early and looked to have a significant edge. To their credit, the young fellas clawed their way back and stole victory in the last quarter. Tyson Ross was sensational, while newbie Caleb Ellis provided some extra height in the team. Brandon Black was best on ground in his second game back.
What more can you say about the reserves performances so far. The boys seem very determined to make amends for the disappointing end to 2014 and our 2015 opponents are the unfortunate victims. Chris Smith has his charges well-drilled and disciplined. This was evident in their ability to hold Murrumbeena to a solitary goal while our boys were able to kick 12 of their own. The hard work is far from over but you get a sense that the reserves are ready for any challenge. A 78-point win against the Lions was a great achievement.Reining best and fairest winner, Sot Solomonidis was best on ground, getting plenty of the ball and finding lots of space throughout the day.
The sensational run continued into the seniors game with our first 18 also taking on Murrumbeena. This game was always going to be a challenge and it was for the first three quarters. The game looked like it could've gone either way, but the Skye boys were able to find that little bit extra to run out comfortable winners by 34 points. Young gun Jordan Thomas was best on ground.
Over at the netball complex, the A-side registered a great win against Keysborough. The B-side are still searching for that first win, going down to Dandenong.
