East Burwood Black 68 def. Vermont Gold 41

East Ringwood Black 88 def. Coldstream Grey 37

Croydon 56 def. FTG Eagles 27


It was a top of the table clash between Croydon and Ferntree Gully on Friday Night at HE Parker. With both sides heading into the game unbeaten, it was still a massive test for Ferntree Gully with Croydon’s ability to punish sides on the scoreboard.


A tight first-half finished with the Blues breaking away late, opening the game up in the final quarter with 20 goals to 2. As strong as they’ve been in front of the ring, Croydon’s defence once again was a key reason for victory. Brodie Smith was outstanding as Goal Keeper for all four quarters.


Of all twenty quarters played this season, Croydon have won 18 of them, a percentage of 90.00. The next closest is East Ringwood and Ferntree Gully with 15 each. It’s the Blues lowest score this season but they’re still going at an average of 68 goals per game, 340 goals for the season.


East Ringwood were outstanding on the weekend, moving into second position on the ladder after a 51 point victory over Coldstream. They’ll be most impressive with the spread of goals, particularly between star players Molly Heymanson and Emily Salmon.



Also victorious this week in Premier Division is East Burwood, 27 point winners over Vermont. In Goal Keeper for the full four quarters, Gabrielle Clarke was outstanding, competing well against Laura Connell for the Eagles who has been hard to stop in recent weeks.
