Woori rack up another win

Star Mail Newspaper 17/6/24

It was more perfect weather as Woori Yallock hosted Pakenham in Round Nine.

An early start for the women’s footy as they played Warburton-Millgrove and it was another great effort with both sides sharing the points, 2.3 15 apiece.

Top Tigers were Lorraine Davis-Robinson, Emily Spicer, Piper Crymble, Natalie McLaren, Rachael Lee and Ellie Murphy.

The Under 18s were beaten by a hungry Olinda team, probably a good wake-up call for the boys that have played their hearts out so far this year. 4.8 32 to 7.7, 49.

Top Tigers were Gabriel Conboy, Tyler Ormsby, Callum Hobbins, Roy Ray, Malachy Poulton and Maximus Iskra.

The Ressies had a disappointing day in their first poor effort for the year, but with a few returning, they should bounce back next week. Final scores, 3.4, 22 to 12.16, 88.

Top Tigers were Hamish Gemmill, Ryley Dare, Luke Cottier, Tom Kear, Sam Carlton and Pierce Jenkin.

In the netball, there were mixed results against a strong netball program.

A Grade: Woori Yallock 20 defeated by Pakenham 56. No best players selected.

B Grade: Woori Yallock 55 defeated Pakenham 49. No best players selected.

C Grade: Woori Yallock 28 defeated by Pakenham 49. No best players selected.

D Grade: Woori Yallock 17 defeated by Pakenham 22. No best players selected.

17 and Under: Woori Yallock 15 defeated by Pakenham 36. No best players selected.

U15s: Woori Yallock 22 defeated by Pakenham 23. No best players selected.

In the senior footy, Pakenham came out with a strong intent for the contest and provided an even game for the first half with Woori Yallock only holding a six-point lead at halftime.

But the second half saw a strong presence from Woori, with the tall timber in Zach Monkhorst and Taylor Gibson (five goals) giving the Lions headaches as the midfield provided the pair plenty of opportunities.

Final scores 19.17, 131 to 12.10, 82.

Top Tigers were Zach Monkhorst, Jordan Williams, Angus Smith, Kody Busoli, Taylor Gibson and Oscar Simpson.

Congratulations also go to 15-year-old Mason O’Neill who made his senior debut.
