Milestones aplenty celebrated at Woori Yallock- Upper Yarra Mail 14/5/24

Yet another day of perfect weather greeted the participants on Saturday at Woori as the Tigers hosted Emerald.

A bye for the Under 18s allowed a few of the boys pressing for senior footy a chance in the ressies.

The Ressies got their second win for the year, it’s been a great turnaround this year with the boys finding more winning moments.

Final score Woori Yallock 9.6, 60 defeated Emerald 6.6, 42. Top Tigers were Tom Kear, Hamish Gemmill, Caleb Lee, Ronan Taylor, Chris Lower and Jack Freedman.

The netball was a mixed bag of results but the whole netball program has been an overly positive vibe so far this year.

Two great achievements from the weekend gone were Tarsha Neal scoring her 1000th career goal and the U15s picking up their first win of the season under coach Josie Venville.

A Grade: Woori Yallock 41 defeated by Emerald 57. Top Tigers were Olivia Caneva, Gaby Clarke and Chelsea Smith.

B Grade: Woori Yallock 74 defeated Emerald 46. Top Tigers were Holly Dunlop, Rebecca Course and Jaymee Tough.

C Grade: Woori Yallock 33 defeated by Emerald 38. Top Tigers were Melanie-Rose Jakobs, Remmi Corbett and Emmerson Alford.

D Grade: Woori Yallock 34 defeated Emerald 32. Top Tigers were Kylie Corbett, Laura Atkins and Narelle Collette.

17 and Under: Woori Yallock 11 defeated by Wandin 34. Top Tigers were Charlotte Comport, Oliver Stenhouse and Monique Brown.

The senior boys saluted two great servants of the club; Jordy Williams (100 games) and club captain Kody Busoli (200 games).

In a scrappy first half, the Tigers struggled to find their own space with Emerald taking it right up to them.

In the second half, Woori was able to get its team play going and was rewarded on the scoreboard. With a few injuries along the way, it was a pleasing team effort as the side continued its unbeaten run.

Woori 15.15, 105 defeated Emerald 5.9, 39. Top Tigers were Taylor Gibson, Joshua Neal, Oscar Simpson, Jake Calvert, Kody Busoli and Robert Allen.

In the women’s footy, they continued a dominant start to the season with a solid win. The team’s defensive press was a highlight with relentless forward-half turnovers.

Final score was Woori Yallock 4.6, 30 to Emerald 1.1, 7. Top Tigers were Emelia Robin, Isla Schroder, Jess Laidlaw, Rachael Lee, Sky Wilson and Catrina D’couto.

This week the men’s footy and netball head to Mt Evelyn which is always a tough assignment.
