TWO ROUNDS TO GO!
That’s right folks, there’s only two rounds left for the 2015 hockey season so scrap all of the other plans from your diaries and get down to support us while it lasts!
We are pleased to announce that FIVE of our teams have already qualified for finals, but with only several matches left it is all on the line for our other teams. There are a few vital relegation games this weekend that will need support, namely Women’s Pennant C who tackle Essendon Ladies away from home in a must win match. It also doubles up as their last game of the year given they have a last round bye. Also, our Men’s Pennant C would love a win over Yarra Valley to assure their spot in the competition for next year. Details of both matches are available below.
For our top teams, there’s also lots on the line. Our MVL1 boys look to cement their spot in the top two as they play Old Xavs at the State Hockey Centre from 2:15pm tomorrow, whilst WPL take part in a big home day on Sunday as they look to hand the Doncaster ladies their first loss of the year!
Good luck everyone!!! #gotem
Performance of the week: Men’s Pennant A. Although a 2-2 draw usually wouldn’t make the highlights reel, an under strength team battled valiantly against the top of the table Camberwell to come away with a point. A great effort!
Round 17 Senior Fixtures:
MVL1 (2nd) vs Old Xaverians (9th) | Sat 15th August | 2:15pm @ S2
With their impressive 5-1 win last weekend at the hands of Brunswick, the MVL1 boys have now officially qualified for finals action in 2015! Still plenty on the line to play for though, with a top 2 berth up for grabs along with a double chance in the finals. And it won’t come easy! This week they play Old Xavs who are lurking safe from relegation and could cause havoc with no pressure on their backs. Hopefully the boys can continue their good run and keep the form going heading into the business end of the year!
