Old Ivanhoe vs Old Mentonians
Similar to the Reserves, the Senior team was looking to reverse a 4-game losing streak and a disappointing last quarter fade out in last week’s game against PEGS. A bumper crowd was in attendance, with in excess of 100 attendees hearing from entertaining Olympians Loudy Wiggins and Sam Bramham at an emotional Mothers’ Day Chelsworth Club luncheon, with proceeds being directed to Breast Cancer Research. Special recognition was given to Tracey Keogh, mother of Jake Erman-Keogh, with her fight against cancer. As is always the case with Tracey, she smiled all day.
The Senior side did not disappoint, playing a brand of uncompromising football for much of the day and by ¾ time, the boys had an unassailable lead, in excess of 10 goals. Whilst Old Mentonians fought the game out and whittled the lead back in the last quarter, the side ended up comfortable winners 14.15.99 to 10.5.65.
Sam Geilings, the general of the back line was best on ground. His ability to always be in the right position is uncanny; your correspondent lost count of the number of intercept marks Sam took with his superb reading of the play.
Carl Groth was back to his destructive best with a great game and Michael Bacskos led from the front with a flawless tagging role on Old Mentonians’ key playmaker. Nick Reeves-Smyth, Mal Mitris and Adrian Del Monte as usual, were also amongst the best players.
The major goal kickers were Adian Del Monte with 4 and Mal Mitris, Max Jones, Dylan Buttifant and Brandon Lee, all with 2 apiece.
