Junior alert! Junior alert!
That’s right, the juniors will finally get to hit the field this weekend after what has seemed like the longest preseason thus far. And they are as keen as ever! All of our Friday night teams are playing away this week, but there will be plenty of action down at TEM tomorrow morning from as early as 8:15am.
Thanks to all those that came down to TEM last Saturday to share in the ANZAC spirit and watch 4 enthralling games from our top teams. The good news was that we got up in most of them, and that was largely due to your support. This weekend, our top teams are both playing away with the men at Yarra Valley and the ladies at Doncaster.
Special mention must go to Rachel and Chris Graven who will both take the field together for WPL this weekend - a remarkable and well deserved achievement for you both!
However, there will be some action down at H1 on Saturday with our MPC, WPC and WPB playing in succession from 12:30pm.
Performance of the week: We can’t split it! Both WPL and MVL1 responded to tough opening round losses to shutout Kew in true ANZAC Spirit, grinding out their matches 2-0.
Wherever you find yourself in the hockey world this weekend, good luck! And please send through as many pics/results/team reports as possible, the more the better! #gotem
Round 3 Senior Fixtures:
MVL1 (5th) vs Yarra Valley (3rd) | Sat 2nd May | 2:00pm @ YAR
The boys look to continue their strong defensive form against an unbeaten Yarra Valley outfit this Saturday. The team played with great valour through the drenching rain on ANZAC day to come out victors over Kew, but Yarra should provide another stern test for the guys.
MVL1R (9th) vs Yarra Valley (1st) | Sat 2nd May | 12:30pm @ YAR
MPA (2nd) vs Waverley (1st) | Sun 3rd May | 11:00am @ HHF
MPC (10th) vs Camberwell (3rd) | Sat 2nd May | 12:30pm @ H1
MMB (5th) vs Hawthorn (2nd) | Sun 3rd May | 5:00pm @ H2
WPL (8th) vs Doncaster (4th) | Sat 2nd May | 2:00pm @ DON
The girls rebounded from their opening round misfortunes with a bang last week, showing great courage to blank Kew 2-0 on ANZAC Day. This week offers another big test for the team as they travel to Doncaster to take on a team residing in the top 4 at this early stage of the year. Will be a good gage to see if we can match it with the best.
WPLR (7th) vs Doncaster (11th) | Sat 2nd May | 12:30pm @ DON
WPB (6th) vs Camberwell (9th) | Sat 2nd May | 3:30pm @ H1
