Round 2 Wrap Up
Our thirds started the day off without their fearless leader in Tommy Gibbs (absent on a business trip to Japan), meaning senior coach Brendan Payne and captain CJ Brassington took the board. Our boys fought hard all morning in blustery conditions against a formidable Kew outfit unable to keep the 4 points at Brens despite the efforts of 100 gamer Brenton Cross and the return of cult hero Michael “the diff” Blandthorn. Final scores read
Wookie’s men ran over a determined Yarra Valley to earn a valuable win in awful conditions. They were trailing by 3 goals at 1/4 time, but then proceeded to click into gear and finished the game as 10 point winners. The likes of Chris Berogna, Lachie Allen and veteran Tom Woodlock were excellent in Uni High’s victory, paying the respect their 2017 premiership flag deserved on its unfurling.

Our girls were on the hunt for their first win of the season at home against St. Bedes in front of a bumper crowd full of the Uni High faithful. 2 points separated the two at the main break setting up the game for a tight finish.

Sarah Noonan, Ella Ingram and Maddi Hince were everywhere and refused to leave the ground without a win, despite the late attempts from St. Bedes.
