Woori Yallock beaten with only seconds left on the clock

The weekend of sport for the Woori Yallock Football Netball Club started Friday night with the Under 18s travelling to Healesville

The boys tried hard against a strong host with a strong team in but Healesville romped to an easy win.

Final score Healesville 11.10, 76 defeated Woori Yallock 2.3, 15. Top Tigers were Mason O’Neill, Roy Ray, Lucien Primavera, Ronan Taylor, James Brown and Maximus Iskra.

The Women’s Footy travelled to Monbulk on Saturday morning and came away with a great win to cement their spot in the top three.

Final score Monbulk 4.5, 29 defeated by Woori Yallock 5.3, 33. Top Tigers were Piper Crymble, Casey Wright, Sky Wilson, India James, Emily Spicer and Emelia Robin.

The rest of the teams travelled to Narre Warren, and it was a tough day in the netball as all senior teams came away with losses, but the B Grade side put up an awesome effort to just fall short, while the other teams had suffered big losses against top quality opponents.

A Grade: Narre Warren 78 defeated Woori Yallock 24. Top Tigers were Gaby Clarke, Danika Corless and Olivia Caneva.

B Grade: Narre Warren 56 defeated Woori Yallock 53. Top Tigers were Jaymee Tough, Rebecca Course and Louise Chapple.

Under 15s: Narre Warren 28 defeated by Woori Yallock 31. Top Tigers were Mia Lingwood, Miami Rowland and Ruby Gregson.

In the footy, the Ressies put up their best effort for the year, great team play and solid defence gave the team an opportunity to cause the upset of the year. Unfortunately, a couple of lapses in the final minutes allowed Narre Warren to hit the front with the final kick of the day.

Final scores Narre Warren 11.2, 68 defeated Woori Yallock 10.5, 65. Top Tigers were Luke Cottier, Hamish Gemmill, Matthew Imbrogno, Tom Kear, Chris Lower and Callum Scott.

In the Seniors, it was two undefeated teams going head to head and it certainly lived up to expectations. The first half was dominated by defence with only 7 goals kicked. In the third quarter, the game opened up with Woori gaining good momentum and hitting the scoreboard to take a two-goal lead into the final break. Unfortunately for the Tigers, the Magpies adjusted well and hit the front in the final minute for a narrow victory. Both sides would have been happy with the result given the finals-like pressure.

Final scores Narre Warren 10.7, 67 defeated Woori Yallock 9.8, 62. Top Tigers were Jordan Williams, Zach Monkhorst, Bradd Arnold, Robert Allen, Liam Odea and Joshua Neal.

This week, Woori Yallock will host Olinda-Ferny Creek in what’s sure to be another tough fixture.
