Disappointing weekend for the club on the results front with just one win from each of our five grades.
The seniors had a dirty day; suffering a 69-point loss to Swinburne University away from home. It started with slow first quarter which saw the Trobers down by 33 points at the first break, and things only got worse from there. Jordy O'Brien was the only multiple goal kicker with two majors, while Liam Toohey and Jack Roberts battled manfully all day. On a positive note, Will Ritchie was a solid contributor in his first senior game for the club.
The twos also had a stinker, going down by 51 points. Things started reasonably well, with the Trobers leading by the smallest of margins at quarter time before the Razorbacks kicked into gear and slammed on seven goals to one in the second term. Jake Lasslett was named best on for the visitors, while Fraser Canobie and Nicholas Dobell kicked two apiece for the day.
In the 19s, Josh Webb kicked four goals up forward, but it wasn’t enough to stop St Bernards from running away with a 28-point win. The girls were extremely competitive in their eight-point loss to Redan, with stalwart Sammy Greene slotting three snags.
The task of recording the club’s only win for the weekend fell to the all-conquering Clubbies, who continue to go from strength to strength. In a very even team performance, the lads romped to a convincing 79-point win.
