It is with deep regret that we inform you today of the passing of a titan of the Emmanuel Football Club in Nick “Klinger” Pirpiris.

“Klinger” passed away this morning after battling  various cancer’s over a number of years.
He played many games with Emmanuel and served on the executive committee for a number of years. He also had a stint at Oakleigh VFA before returning to the Krusherdome to finish of his career.

As you would expect he fought the brave fight to the very end and died peacefully surrounded by family and friends

Rest In Peace Klinger. We’ll see you on the other side.

OAFC would like to pass on our deepest condolences to the family and his former teammates.

The first soggy Saturday of the current season in the VAFA Premier C division saw last placed Oakleigh play host to third placed Old Ivanhoe at Scammell Reserve. The injury depleted Oaks, despite having shown some improved form in recent weeks, were still frustrated and disappointed with the lack of success but also were optimistic that a change in fortunes would soon come with the eventual return of some key players and, possibly, some luck. Old Ivanhoe were, no doubt, expecting a percentage boosting win over the Krushers to help their claim for a finals berth. However, things did not go to script.

Oakleigh were quick out of the blocks with the first two goals of the match but Old Ivanhoe didn’t take long to answer in kind and it appeared early that the ’Hoes would soon stamp their authority on the match but the Krushers took the initiative and jumped out to a 4 goal lead before a late goal brought the ‘Hoes to within 16 points at the first change. Old Ivanhoe lifted in the second term to grab the lead but the Oaks persisted and went to the long break with a narrow 2 point advantage.

The half-time break did nothing to prepare the spectators, or Old Ivanhoe for that matter, for what happened in the third quarter as Oakleigh went on a rampage booting 9-1 to the ‘Hoes 3 behinds and the Krushers held an all too rare ascendency of some 9 goals at the last change. A rattled Old Ivanhoe fought back in the last closing the gap to 6 goals before another Krusher surge took the difference to 52 points at the final bell. Aaron Cloke booted 7 goals for Oakleigh with Trevor Bromley, celebrating his 250th senior appearance, added 6. Tim Scott and James Hunt kicked 2 goals each with Dermot Cleary, Liam Gillard and Pat Iaonnidis among the best players.

In the reserves match it was a pretty even affair up until half-time with Old Ivanhoe holding a 4 point advantage, however, a burst of 7 unanswered goals in the third term to Old Ivanhoe put the issue beyond Oakleighs reach and they slumped to a 65 point defeat. Josh Abela kicked 3 goals for Oakleigh with Chris Grant adding 2, Andrew Murray, Jack Van De Ven and Matt Aranha were among Oakleighs best.

The U/19s opened proceedings at Scammell playing host to undefeated powerhouse De La Salle and, despite a bright opening quarter, found the going tough against the ladder leaders and were over run in the final term to go down by 66 points. Anmol Malhotra was the leading goal kicker Oakleigh with 2, Kevin Baras, Jake Ford and Ryan Powell were in the best players.


Seniors: Oakleigh 23.8.146 def Old Ivanhoe 13.16.94

In the VAFA Premier C division round 8 on Saturday, Oakleigh Amateurs hosted Monash Blues in the first local derby for the season at Scammell Reserve. With Monash coming off 6 straight wins and Oakleigh with only 3 wins from 7 the Blues were the hot favourites in this encounter, the Oaks with Gary Bennett playing his 100th Senior game however, had a different view. With a strong, gusting wind blowing across the ground, scoring was never going to be easy and the first term was testament to that with only 3 goals scored for the quarter and Oakleigh taking a 4 point advantage into the first change. It was much the same in the second with neither side able to make a break and the long break came with the Krushers lead shaved to 3 points.

The concern at this time for the Oakleigh faithful was the number of unremarkable third quarters that the team had produced in the season to date and would this day be any different. Their concerns were allayed when the Krushers began to press harder, refusing to give Monash any space to run and as the intensity increased the Blues began to wilt and Oakleighs lead increased to 12 points at the last change. The Krushers could sense a victory in the final term and kicked it up another gear and the Blues began to crack trying to stay with them and when the lead blew out to over 5 goals midway through the quarter the Oaks knew they had it and held off the Blues for a hard earned 28 point win. Trevor Bromley led the goal kicking for Oakleigh with 5, Liam Hard added 3 and Aaron Cloke kicked 2 with Pat Di Siervi, Shane Borland and Stuart Wines among Oakleigh’s best.

In the reserves game Oakleigh struggled to keep up with the visitors in the first half and looked to be heading for the receiving end of a shellacking when they fell some 8 goals behind during the third term but a gutsy fight back got the Oaks to within 31 points at the final bell. Rod Gonzalez was the Oaks top goal scorer with 3 and Josh Revere added 2. Chris Grant, Adam Mattheison and Jaryd Wines were in Oakleigh’s best.

In the curtain raiser, the U/19s Section 4 clash saw tenth placed Oakleigh take it right up to fourth placed Monash and shock the Blues by leading at every change. The Blues, however, took the Krushers to task in the last quarter keeping them goal less and running out 14 point winners. It was a disappointing finish for the young Krushers who had played so well. Alex Swan led the goal kicking with 3 and Ryan Henderson kicked 2 for Oakleigh. Nick Di Cioccio, Lucas Cloke and Chris Pearson were among Oakleighs best players.

Final Scores:

Seniors: Oakleigh 13.10.88 def Monash Blues 8.12.60

Goals: Trevor Bromley 5, Liam Hard 3, Aaron Cloke 2, Pat Di Siervi, Tim Scott
Best: Pat Di Siervi, Shane Borland, Stuart Wines, Baden Wass, Robbie Holden, Tim Scott

Reserves: Oakleigh 7.4.46 lt Monash Blues 11.11.77 Goals: Rod Gonzalez 3, Josh Revere 2, Jake Benoiton, Adam Mathiesson
Best: Chris Grant, Adam Mathiesson, Jared Wines, Rod Gonzalez, Josh Revere, Tom Nolan

U19s Oakleigh 8.13.51 lt Monash Blues 10.15.75 Goals; Alex Swan 3, Ryan Henderson 2, Lucas Cloke, Nick Di Cioccio, Nathan Fredericks

 Grand Final Match Review

Oakleigh Amateurs U/19s capped off a fine season by holding off a game St.Bedes/Mentone Tigers to take out the VAFA U/19s South premiership at Trevor Barker Oval in Sandringham on Saturday. Jumping out of the blocks quickly, the Krushers had 5 goals on the board in the opening 10 minutes before the Tigers could settle and a thumping reminiscent of the second semi-final loomed large. However, the Tigers weren’t about to be swept aside this day and took the game right up to the Oaks hitting back with a couple of goals to trail by 17 points at the first change.

Oakleigh started the second term on the back foot as St.Bedes began to lift, closing the gap quickly before the Krushers managed to stem the flow and answer in kind maintaining a 3 goal buffer at the long break.

The Oaks lifted the tempo in the third quarter and, if not for some wayward scoring attempts, might have put the game out of reach by the last change but the Tigers managed to keep their hopes alive to trail by 21 points going into the last term.

Oakleigh had a sniff of victory though, and they weren’t going to be denied as they refused the Tigers any easy possessions and eventually came away with a 29 point win in what was a very entertaining game of football and congratulations must go to both sides for the way they played the game. Oakleigh captain Michael Tate was awarded Best on Ground.

Final Scores:

Under 19’s: Oakleigh 14.11-95 def St Bedes/Mentone Tigers 10.6-66

Goals:  A.Cloke 5, Z.Pearce-Thomas 4, B.Still 2, M.Tate 2, A.Mase 1, K.Schmauder 1.
Best: M.Tate, A.Deneys, A.Cloke, S.Murray, Z.Pearce-Thomas, B.Still.
