KRUSHERS LEFT WANTING

Andrew Murray 1

Andrew Murray – 50 Senior games

VAFA Premier C Division returned after a two week break and Oakleigh travelled to Marcellin College hopeful of an upset. Andrew Murray playing his 50th Senior game for the Oaks, but unfortunately, Marcellin put any chance of an upset well out of reach as they held the Krushers goal-less in the first term. Oakleigh didn’t raise two flags until midway through the second quarter after the Eagles had booted 10. From that point the Krushers kept pace with the hosts but couldn’t overcome the horror start as Marcellin proved too good and cruised to a 52 point victory. Trevor Bromley led the Oaks goal kicking with 4 and Aaron Cloke added 3. Liam Gillard, Baden Wass and Shane Borland were some of Oakleighs best.

The early game which, due to school football, was played across the road at Bulleen Park, was a shocker for Oakleigh as well as the reserves proved no match for a powerful Eagles outfit succumbing by 80 points in what was a frustrating game for the Oaks. Jake Benoiton, Simon Berman and Steve Buchanan shared the goals and Andrew Mase, Adam Mathiesson and Leroy Moeller were in Oakleighs best players.

The U/19s played host to MHSOB at Scammell Reserve and took control of proceedings early going into the main break 17 points up. After half-time the Krushers really took over adding 7-3 to Melbournes 5 behinds winning by 51 points. Anmol Malhotra continued his fine form in front of goal kicking 4 with Chris Pearson and Hayden Shea adding 2 each. Scott Johnstone, Nathan Fredericks and Dylan Saffigna were in Oakleighs best.
