Round 12 Recap

The forecast predicted a cold snap and heavy rain on Saturday and everyone was prepared for a chilly afternoon.

The under 19s took on Cheltenham at 10:30am when the sun made a brief cameo. Despite some good patches, our guys weren't able to contain Cheltenham's run. Tyson Ross kicked two goals and young Reece Smart was best-on-ground in the 52-point loss.

The reserves then ran out to take on Doveton Eagles. The Eagles were short on some of their reserves players and weren't able to match it with the Bombers. Our boys controlled the tempo all day and ran out 172-point winners. Matt Poore kicked nine goals and took best a-field honours.

The seniors have been playing some inspired footy of late and were expected to do some damage in this clash against Doveton Eagles. However, it was the Eagles who came out firing. There were some great contests around the ground all day, but Doveton were able to control the game by being first to the ball. Some classy patches were enough to get our guys over the line by three points. Matt Gonzalez kicked four goals and Ash Planner was best-on-ground.

The most pleasing thing was the rain holding off for most of the day!

At the netball, it was a cold, wintery affair. The A-side were able to defeat Springvale Districts 36-24. A sensational effort.

We now look forward to next week when the seniors and reserves travel to Murrumbeena for what is tipped to be a tough clash. The under 19s venture to East Brighton for the first time and the thirds are off to Hallam Reserve. At the netball courts, the As take on Keysborough while the Bs face Dandenong.

Basher Plays Game 100

Benny "Basher" Evans will notch up game number 100 when the Bombers take on Doveton Eagles this weekend. 

Benny came to the club as a youngster in 2009. Now at 24 years of age, he is having a break-out season. He has certainly cemented his spot in the senior side and has become one of the most important players.

We congratulate Benny and wish him all the best for his 100th senior appearance.

Round 11 Recap

We are getting closer and closer to that milestone of six wins from six teams. This weekend was a sensational round for the club.

The thirds were informed on Friday afternoon that Black Rock would unfortunately not be able to field a side to take the park. The thirds players names enjoyed a run at Oliver's Hill.

It was then left to the under 19s to commence preceedings at home in excellent conditions against Hallam. To the credit of the under 19s boys, it was a close game the whole way through. A far cry from the 50-point deficit that lay in front of our boys at half time the last time we met Hallam. The boys fought all morning. A goal to Brandon Black put the boys three goals in front with four minutes to play. A couple of lapses in concentration allowed Hallam to kick the three goals needed to come back. The final result was a draw. Luke Broomhall was huge up forward with five goals, while Reece Smart to best-on-ground honours.

The reserves and seniors travelled to Ross Street Reserve to face Heatherton. The reserves were in control from the very beginning and showed no signs of letting up. Our guys again led at every change to come away with a 114-point win. Mick Kalviskis kicked eight and young Ryan McConville was best-on-ground.

The seniors were coming off a huge confidence-boosting win against Oakleigh Districts last week and were looking to continue with that momentum against Heatherton. The problem was, Heatherton were also coming off a big win against Caulfield and started very strong. It was a close encounter up until half time when our guys were able to kick away. An eight-goal-to-none third quarter set us up for a big 77-point win away from home. It was a solid performance going into the mid-season break. Acting captain, Aaron Harper, kicked four. Jarryd Karadeas and Jim Martinson kicked three a-piece. But it was young Joel McConville who took best a-field honours for the seniors this week.

At the SDNA courts, both netball teams recorded wins. The A-side defeated Bentleigh, 49-12, while the B-side defeated Chelsea Heights, 26-23. Well done to both teams!

The thirds played out their round 12 match last weekend and defeated Sandown by 40 points. It was a sensational challenge in slippery conditions for our guys, but they brought it together to get the job done. Shane Werner kicked two goals while Scott Thorne was named best-on-ground.
