KRUSHERS TRIUMPH.

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.

KRUSHERS CLAIM LOCAL DERBY

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

YOUNG KRUSHERS KINGS OF THE SOUTH.

 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.

YOUNG KRUSHERS STORM INTO GRAND FINAL.

 2nd Semi Final Match Review

Oakleigh Amateurs U/19s blew away St.Bedes Mentone in Saturdays VAFA U/19 South second semi final at Warrawee Park in Oakleigh. A 6 goal opening term put the Krushers on track as they kept the Tigers to 5 behinds and took a 31 point lead into the first change. The second quarter, however, proved a challenge for the Oaks who struggled with the breeze and remained goal-less for the term as St.Bedes closed the gap to 23 points at the long break.

After a bit of a bake from the coach at half-time the Oaks came out with a different attitude and after trading goals with the Tigers early Oakleigh slammed on 6 unanswered goals and went to the last change with a 10 goal advantage. A further 5 goals to the Tigers 1 in the last completed the rout and the final siren had the Krushers 85 points up and in the Grand Final. Aaron Cloke was again the major goal-kicker finishing with 7 with Ben Still adding 4. Michael Tate, Austin Deneys and Luke Pappon were just a few of Oakleigh’s best players.

Final Scores:

Oakleigh 19-9-123 def St.Bedes Mentone 5-8-38.

Goals: Aaron Cloke 7, Ben Still 4, Zac Pearce-Thomas, Kyle Schmauder 2, Austin Deneys, Luke Pappon, Jake Lever, Jake Benoiton 1.
Best: Michael Tate, Aaron Cloke, Austin Deneys, Luke Pappon, Sam Ciavarella, Ben Still.

KRUSHERS DIG DEEP.

Round 17 Match Review

Oakleigh completed the Home section of the Home and Away part of the VAFA Premier C division season in fine fashion with a stirring victory over PEGS at Scammell Reserve on Saturday. With a stiff wind favouring the golf course end, the Krushers started reasonably well with first use and went into the first break with a 2 goal advantage. However, it all went awry in the second term as PEGS took full advantage of the wind and showed Oakleigh how it was done booting 8 goals to the Krushers 1 as they ran all over Oakleigh’s defence going into half-time with a 31 point lead and a load of confidence.

The Oaks needed a big third quarter to set up a win and ten minutes in even the most fervent of the Krusher faithful were having doubts as Oakleigh struggled to kick a goal but then it all changed as the goals came. 5 in all. And Oakleigh were 3 points up at the last change. There were still doubts, however, with PEGS having last use of the wind but the Krushers had other ideas and 2 quick goals gave them momentum and a sniff and the pressure shifted to PEGS who rallied to close the gap to 5 points but the Krushers were not about to give it up and kicked away again. A goal after the final bell to PEGS left them 2 goals short and a jubilant Oakleigh celebrated a sensational win. Tim Scott was deadly around the goals finishing with 6 as Steve Tolongs and Dermot Cleary added 2 each. Aisea Valentini, Zac Thiessens and Stuart Wines were just some of Oakleigh’s best players.

The reserves took the field in the early game with a bare 18 men and battled hard against a stronger opponent but never gave up and gave PEGS a real shake up. Granted they were fortunate with some umpiring decisions but that shouldn’t detract from their efforts that saw them fall 9 points short of an upset. Baden Wass, Jim Hunt and Matt White were all good for Oakleigh.

The U/19s travelled to Boss Reserve and a date with Hampton Rovers in the U/19s South penultimate round and came away with another big win although there were some injuries. The young Krushers dominated from the outset booting 7 goals to nothing in the opening term and going on to win by 84 points.

Final Scores:

Seniors: Oakleigh 15-12-102 def PEGS 14-6-90.

Goals: T.Scott 6, S.Tolongs, D.Cleary 2, Z.Thiessens, K.Hogan, C.Hogan, A.Valentini, C.Lavery.
Best: A.Valentini, Z.Thiessens, S.Wines, C.Hogan, T.Scott, K.Holden.

Reserves: Oakleigh 9-6-60 lt PEGS 10-9-69

Goals:
Best: B.Wass, J.Hunt, M.White, L.Kioussis.

U/19s: Oakleigh 18-20-128 def Hampton Rovers 6-8-44.
