Undermanned Casey suffer Wildcats fury

Casey Cavaliers had a reality check over the weekend with both the men’s and women’s sides suffering heavy losses against the Eltham Wildcats. The women were on court first and were missing start-shooter Monique Conti to a back injury. Casey started like a house on fire with a 5-0 start to the game with Rachel Bell scoring an early three to kick the margin out. The Wildcats quickly made their way back into the contest through Taylah Wynne who helped rally the side to a 20-19 lead at quarter-time.

Thunder rattle their rivals

Dandenong Thunder has prevailed once again in a hotly contested ‘derby’ against Dandenong City. A 3-1 scoreline was overshadowed by five yellow cards. Lochhead struck a well-hit ball from beyond the 18-yard box past the keeper for Thunder’s first. The goal came after the keeper punched away a clearance which fell at the feet of Lochhead who fired home the opener. City continued to press forward and got the equaliser in the 41st minute through Gavin De Niese. The Dandenong City stalwart foun

City beat the rest

Melbourne City has been recognised at the 2022 Victorian Sports Awards as AED Authority Team of the Year. The award has previously been won by sporting powerhouses – Melbourne Storm and Melbourne Vixens. Melbourne City edged out fellow Melbourne A-League based-side Melbourne Victory and reigning AFL premiership side Melbourne to win the award. The Cranbourne based side won the 2021 A-League championship, in turn qualifying for the Asian Champions League. City finished the regular season on t

Hrustic’s road to Qatar

The journey from Heatherton United Soccer Club to the biggest stage at the World Cup has been one filled with hard work and determination for Ajdin Hrustic. Hrustic played his junior soccer with Heatherton United before recently taking centre stage on the world scene. Hrustic has made his name for German top-flight side Eintracht Frankfurt, where he was key in helping them secure the 2022 Europa Cup. Hrustic was formidable in the Europa League Final where he helped Eintracht Frankfurt achieve

End of the road

Melbourne City’s season came to an end in a way no one was expecting with a two-nil loss to Western United in the A-League Grand-Final. The 2021/22 campaign ended with a number of player’s coming to the end of their contracts, departing the club for greener pastures. English international Carl Jenkinson has departed the club after his six-month loan from Nottingham Forrest came to an end. Jenkinson had also featured for Arsenal before making the move to Nottingham Forrest.

Momentum building for Cavaliers

The Casey Cavaliers have made an emphatic statement in its inaugural season of NBL1. The women’s Cavaliers side has shown its strength in the competition, currently sitting sixth on the ladder with six wins and four losses in their opening 10 games. The side had a successful back-to-back stint in Tasmania prior to the Queen’s Birthday bye weekend. A Saturday and Sunday fixture in the Apple Isle saw them have a 73-55 point win over the Hobart Chargers and a 85-71 win over the Launceston Tornad

Hrustic’s magical moment

Dandenong locals Ajdin Hrustic and Bailey Wright have helped Australia inch one step closer to a place in the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Australia was forced to find an alternate path to qualify for its fifth World Cup in a row. The path would see them first take on the UAE, with a win seeing them progress to take on South-American giants Peru in a do-or-die inter-continental playoff match. Australia faced an opportunistic UAE outfit in Qatar, the host country for the World-Cup.

Change starts here

The seeds of change start at the grassroots level, family violence crusader Phil Cleary told a gathering of community representatives at a Together We Can leadership summit last week. “We don’t need the politicians to change the world we live in; give us the money and we can do what we have to do locally,“ he told the crowd. Cardinia Shire played host to a Together We Can event, which targets family and domestic violence in the community. The event held at the Cardinia Cultural Centre feature

Cavaliers thrive in Tassie

Casey Cavaliers were back on court in a monumental way over the weekend as they travelled south to Tasmania for the first time in their short NBL1 history to face the Hobart Chargers, Launceston Tornadoes and North-West Thunder. Both the men and women teams featured in frantic double-headers over Saturday and Sunday. The women were up on court first and took on the Chargers on Saturday evening. A fast and agile start from the Cavaliers saw them lunge out to a 29-14 opening term.

Narre South Saints had to face the weather and a formidable Black Rock side as they looked to continue their march towards finals. Black Rock controlled proceedings sliding out to a 24-point advantage at the main break. The gap continued to grow as Black Rock prevailed by 37 points. Saint Steven Sigeti finished with three goals while Black Rock’s Byron Wright kicked a game-high eight goals to help his side to all four points. Endeavour Hills had to be strong and bold to hold off Carrum Patte

Power zap the Falcons at wet and windy Shepley

Gippsland Power and Dandenong Stingrays played a double-header at Shepley Oval on Saturday afternoon. The Stingrays were on show first against the Greater Western Victoria Rebels. Dandenong started in fine form as it continued to show its strength and power in the midfield through Taj Campbell-Farell who was damaging in the centre. Dandenong continued to be pressed throughout the game with the Rebels continuing to rally in the second half as the Stingrays lead stretched out to 30 going into t

Eagles rock over Demons

Cranbourne Eagles were in full flight as they took on the Bentleigh Demons at Livingston Reserve. The Eagles continue to be a force to be reckoned with as they started with a four-goal opening term to lead by 24-points into the first break. Wayward kicking continued to plague both sides, as Melbourne’s unfavourable weather patterns played their part in influencing the result. At half-time Cranbourne lead by 14 points and continued to wrestle conditions. The Demons continued their inaccuracy

Klu-Roong outmuscle Redlegs

The Dandenong Redlegs met the Hallam Hawks on Saturday afternoon to mark Indigenous Round. The round pays its respect to the traditional owners of the land coinciding with Reconciliation Week. Hallam changed its name to Hallam Klu-Roong Football Netball Club for the special occasion. Klu-Roong comes from the indigenous word for Hawk. Both sides had indigenous jerseys to mark the occasion on a special day. Dandenong started well and led by a point at quarter-time. Philip Muscat and Dakota D

Cavaliers knock Knox over

Casey Cavaliers were back on court on Saturday after a disappointing showing against the Frankston Blues last week. Both the men and women teams were trying to recover from tough losses. The men’s clash went into overtime against the Blues, eventually losing by 16 points, while the women fell five points short of a rampaging Frankston side featuring several Australian internationals. Both Cavaliers sides were looking for redemption against Knox Raiders at Casey Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

City face grand final heart-break

The A-League Men’s Championship was the ultimate prize on offer when Melbourne City took on Western United on Saturday night in an all-Melbourne grand final. Western United was heading into the clash as the underdogs featuring in its first grand final since the club’s inception in 2018. United – coached by form Australian hero John Aloisi – is known for its counteractive approach, swiftly turning defence into attack. The scene at AAMI Park was set for history to be made for both sides of the

Cleary’s fight for change

Women’s rights advocate Phil Cleary will be the keynote speaker at an event to tackle the issues of family violence in the community. The free event, at the Cardinia Cultural Centre on 1 June, will target sporting clubs and other elements of society to ensure a safe and inclusive communities free of violence and abuse.

Demons face the heat

The perils of season 2022 ripped through the Springvale Demons side for Saturday’s clash with the Cheltenham Rosellas at Jack Barker Oval. A flurry of late Covid outs for Springvale caused a few reserves players to step up. Former Tiger and Hawk Tyrone Vickery was set to be the guiding light in a make-shift Demons’ line up. Springvale was feeling the full-affects of a strong Cheltenham side early on. The Rosellas got off to a blistering start as they jumped out to a 38-point quarter-time lea

Doveton in full flight

Doveton has continued its winning ways with a dispatching of Highett at Turner Road Reserve on Saturday.
