Brought to you by the Mornington Racing Course


Crib Point 18.11.119 Defeated Tyabb 6.12.48

A spirited Crib Point side ran out 71 point winners over Tyabb today. The Magpies never gave the Yabbies a sniff and continued to inflict pain to their loss last week. Waide Symes kicked 8 for the day and Talyor Stratton chimed in with 5 of his own.


Frankston 14.16.100 Defeated Dromana 4.7.31

Last year’s runners-up made sure that put out a reminder to the rest of the competition, that the Grand Final was a small hiccup and they mean business. The Bombers did so by defeating a young Dromana side by 69 points. Frankston was in control from the first bounce and never looked back. The goals were¬†shared around with 9 individual goal scorers for the Bombers.


Rosebud 7.5.47 Lost to Sorrento 12.12.84

Look out Nepean FNL, the Sharks are back in town! Sorrento made sure that 2017 started off with a win, and what better way than over Rosebud. There is never any love lost between these two sides but Sorrento had the last laugh of the day, and the 4 points to go along with a 37 point win. Leigh Poholke enjoyed his return to Shark colours with a bag of 5 goals to his name and Justin McCleary was best on ground.


Pearcedale 12.16.88 Defeated Devon Meadows 13.4.82

The local derby between the two Panthers in the Nepean FNL certainly delivered on entertainment value. The blue & white Panthers also had the assistance of Daniel Kerr for this game. Devon Meadows were more accurate in front of goal, while Pearcedale let plenty of opportunities go with wayward kicking. Pearcedale were able to straighten in the third quarter kicking 6.3 to take a 6 point lead into the last break and the win as the game was called off due to the bad weather.


Somerville 14.10.94 Defeated Red Hill 9.4.58

This game all the attributes to be a cracking game. Both sides bowed out of finals last year and they were both looking to make amends. Early in the game, neither side wanted to back down, with a 10 point margin to Somerville at half time. Then after the main break, the Eagles decided to put their foot down, moving to a 30 point lead at 3 quarter time and eventually winning by 36 points when the game was called off due to bad weather 3 minutes into the last.


Hastings 18.10.118 Defeated Rye 11.10.76

The Blues train just kept chugging along for season 2017, with a 42 point win over a young Demon brigade. Hastings certainly didn’t have it all their way, as in the first half, Rye held out the Blues to lead at half time by 7 points. But a 9 goal third quarter saw Hastings regain control of the game and run out eventual winners. Luke Clark added 6 goals to his name along with a best on ground performance.



Crib Point 47 Defeated Tyabb 18

The end result of this game certainly was a shock. To see Crib Point to dominate the game and scoreline will send shivers down rival clubs as the Magpies delivered a 29 point blow to Tyabb, last year’s runners-up to Cribby in the grand final.

Rosebud 60 Defeated Sorrento 35

The Buds started their 2017 campaign off with a big win over Sorrento by 25 points.


Pearcedale 26 Lost to Devon Meadows 48

The tables were turned in the local derby for the netballers between Pearcedale v Devon Meadows, with the red, white and black panthers taking the honors on the court, by 22 points.


Somerville 41 Defeated Red Hill 28

The Eagles wanted to make sure that 2017 was to a be a reflection of 2016 which saw Somerville make finals. The Eagles were just a touch classier over Red Hill today, with a 13 point win.
