Seniors (Premier) - 4.3.27 Def By Vermont 5.7.37
Reserves (Division 4) - 0.0.0 Def By Vermont 3.6.24
it was an ample opportunity for both our Women's sides this weekend to get some wins on the road. However, it just wasn't the case with two honourable losses.
The Reserves game was undoubtedly a low-scoring affair. With our girls unable to manage a score for the game in wet conditions, they still limited the Eagles to only 3 goals, which was a tremendous effort.
Our Seniors, like the reserves, had a slow start before kicking into gear. Keeping Vermont within seven points at the main break. The Eagles had five scoring shots to one in the third to our one, giving themselves a buffer and able to withstand our last quarter surge.
It was a great effort for our girls not to give up and keep playing until the end.
Goal Kickers: C. Bould 3, G. Grimmer

In wet conditions of the expanses of East Burwood reserve, our Seniors were triumphant over the Rams by one goal, to hold onto the top spot. We jumped out of the blocks well in the first, kicking four goals to East Burwood's one.
From there, it became a wrestle, with the Rams slowly edging their way back into the game and holding a one-point lead at the last break.
The last quarter had the crowd on the edge of their seats, as both sides went goal for goal before our boys were able to kick ahead in the dying minutes of the game and take the win for the day.

The Reserve didn't have the best day against a strong Rams outfit, whilst our U19.5s closed the gap on the ladder leading Bears, defeating them by nine points to lock in a top-two finish for this season.

The Eastern Ranges were triumphant over the second-placed Dandenong Stingrays last Saturday. It was an arm wrestle with the lead changing several times throughout the match before the Ranges more accurate kicking won them the game 10.13.73 to Dandenong's 8.17.65.
