LV Senior Secondary School Comp REPORT 2016

Every Thursday lunchtime in the gym for the last 7 weeks was going to pay off today. A very positive and determined team set off for Pasley Park, Altona to take part in the annual schools’ lacrosse tournament. We finally left Bendigo (nice one Alyssa) and unusually, the closer we got to Melbourne the better the daymore

Lacrosse Match Report Division 3, Bendigo vs Altona at Altona, 20/8/16

On Saturday, the Warhawks made their way to Paisley Park, Altona and under bright sunshine and on a remarkably good surface, did their final warm-up and stretches for the season while the Altona team began to slowly appear at the sideline.

Earlier in the year when the Bendigo lads played this team and were beaten, they looked well-matched in general play, but couldn’tmore

Match Report Lacrosse, Division 3, Bendigo vs Footscray at Bendigo, 13/8/16.

A pleasant Spring-like afternoon in Bendigo greeted my car load of kids and dogs on Saturday. And I was heartened to see a good turnout in maroon and even more so to see lower numbers in green and white. Footscray sent up ten players, with stalwart Greg Mollison forced into a bench coaching role with a crook hand. Bendigo fielded 14.

I believe a quarter by quarter breakdown is unnecessary for tmore

Match report Lacrosse division 3, Bendigo vs Chadstone at Maiden Gully, 30/7/16

After a muddy training last Thursday, I’d just got the boots back to clean and dry condition, when one look at the Maiden Gully ground on Saturday told me I’d wasted my time. There was still grass on it, but it was heavy going. Ground balls splashed and had to be dug out and shaken to clear the mud. Late season games are often lmore

Lacrosse Match Report on division 3 Bendigo vs Melbourne Uni, 23/7/16

On a cold Saturday afternoon the Warhawks made their way to Brunswick to take on Melbourne University at home. The ground was in miraculously good order after much rain in preceding weeks and after the game I was able to simply knock some wet grass off my boots and re-stow them clean.

University were customarily slow to arrive, but eventually started the game with 14 players and had a stragglmore

Lacrosse Match Report, Division 3, Bendigo vs Malvern played at Albert Ground 9/7/16

With the last few weeks being almost entirely rainy, it was pleasant to be greeted by bright sunshine last Saturday, and to have it stay that way for the whole day.
The Warhawks travelled to Albert Ground where Malvern were hosting games for the day. An early morning text message, asking if my brother Mal mightmore

After a very good win against Caulfield, Bendigo travelled to Melbourne’s western suburbs to play against Footscray.

Lacrosse Division 3, 18/6/16, Bendigo vs Caulfield at Bendigo.
After a week off, with the annoying niggles, sprains and contusions of a fortnight previous becoming a mere painful memory, the Warhawks arrived at Maiden Gully feeling refreshed and ready to play. The weather was fairly bleak, but we had few moments in the sun during the day and it was a good day for lacrosse. The ground was a bit mumore

Match Report 4/6/16, Division 3 Bendigo vs Altona at Lynch Res. Altona.

Heavy cloud and a dark threat of rain formed the ominous backdrop for the drive to Altona last Saturday. Misty rain fell for much of the day, but the ground was in good order. The Warhawks arrived with eleven players, including an injured Ian Lock, who with a show of pluck, put his hand up for goalie. Altona had 12 to start.
The game began with both teams taking a while to work themselves in.more

Report on div 3 lacrosse. Bendigo vs Chadstone at Chadstone 28/5/16

On Saturday, the weather was keeping us guessing on the long drive to Chadstone, but as luck would have it, the rain held off until about 15 minutes after the end of the game.
Numbers for Bendigo were looking a little dire again, with 11 to start, while Chadstone asked if they could play an extra and so had 17. No matter the mmore

Match Report 21 May 2016 Round 6 Bendigo v Melbourne University.

It was a cloudy but nice day for lacrosse. Earlier in the week Melb Uni requested an early start of 1.30pm which Bendigo agreed. Bendigo had thirteen players suited up with the return of Timmy Davies. However there were three players sidelined due to injury, work or wedding function.
On Thursday it was discovered that there no ALRA referee assigned to this match, and Bendigo was told that Melbmore

Match report: Division 3 Melbourne High Old Boys vs Bendigo 30/4/16

A gloomy morning that promised rain at Lancefield, became a magnificent Autumn day at Royal Park. I shed my jumper as I got out of the car and never needed it again all afternoon. We had an early start (12:45) for our game, and Bendigo took the field with low numbers again (13), while MHOBs boasted a bench of 6.more

Lacrosse report. Division 3 Bendigo vs Eltham at Eltham 16/4/16.

On Saturday morning the Bendigo team boarded the mini-bus to Eltham for an early start (12:30) at Lower Eltham Park. It was always going to be a big day. We played Eltham at Eltham as our last game of last season, and with depleted numbers, we were roundly thrashed. So we had been practicing hard with that in mind and we hoped tomore

Thursday 17 December 2015

It was line ball whether the games were going to proceed or have penalty shoot out to decide all positions.

Luckily for most players and organisers the temperature did not venture over 35C, as Bendigo Lacrosse Association Policy is that the games would have been cancelled if the temperature was 36C or higher.

Due to the high temperature the games were modifiemore

Match Report 1 August 2015 Bendigo v MCC

Saturday was a chilly and overcast day and we had a fairly wet Maiden Gully ground to play on.
Bendigo started with 12 players, while MCC had 13 to start, and Gino’s experienced eye noted a couple of extra players added in from the last time we played them.

MCC jumped the Warhawks, putting on three quick goals before Bendigo could score through a strange looking shot off a missed pass that Ianmore

Match Report 25 July 2015 Bendigo v Williamstown

On Saturday it was pretty cold, but turned out to be a nice afternoon to play lacrosse. Not windy and with a little sun.
The Williamstown club arrived in a full bus and as they unloaded their gear, I gloomily surveyed the usual Willy talent-fest with a heavy heart. They had 16 players ready to play by 2:30. Bendigo starmore

Match report: 11/7/15, Division 3, Bendigo v Caulfield at Caulfield Park
All the way from Lancefield to Caulfield it either poured, or looked like it would in a minute. Icy big drops. All morning, the radio forecasts had been grimly warning of blizzard conditions and hail that would rake the pitch during the afternoon. Happily, it never happened and while we had dark, cold conditions, the rain hemore

Match report 27 June 2015 Rnd 10 Bendigo v Malvern

Lacrosse report: Division 3, 27/6/15, Maiden Gully. Bendigo v Malvern
Last Saturday, the Warhawks hosted Malvern at Maiden Gully ground. A gloomy and overcast day greeted arriving players, and at the toss of the coin, sun position had no bearing on chosen end.
Bendigo defence had key omissions with Ty and Dion Griffin unable to play and Mark Reader injured and coaching from the bench. So Marty Bmore

Match Report 20 June 2015 Rnd 10 Bendigo vs MCC

On Saturday, the Warhawks travelled to Albert Park to take on MCC. It’s always a pleasure just to arrive at the historic Albert Cricket Ground and such a nice change from the recovered tip sites, rough footy ovals and odd-shaped spare Council parkland that usually serves as division 3 lacrosse fields.
The weather was fine, and chilly. Great to play in.

The Warhawks were short of midfieldemore

Match Report 30 May 2015 Rnd 8 Bendigo v Williamstown

On Saturday, the Warhawks travelled to bay side Newport on a lovely sunny afternoon. However it didn’t last long, as soon as we arrived at the ground the clouds started to roll in with cold winds from the North West blowing hard. Yep, winter is only a day away.
The Williamstown team was a very different team from whenmore

Match Report 23 May 2015 Rnd 7 Bendigo v Caulfield

On Saturday, the Warhawks hosted Caulfield on a glorious, bright and sunny afternoon. A last hoorah for Autumn.
The Caulfield team arrived in stages, and we were only able to face-off going towards 3pm. Caulfield had16 to start, Bendigo had 14.
The game was reasonably even in the first quarter, with Caulfield kept to 2 and Bendigo able to score once, through a good shot from Jarrod Topp-Lowe afmore

Match Report 16 May 2015 Rnd 6 Malvern v Bendigo

On Saturday, the Warhawks travelled to Caulfield Park to take on Malvern. The weather was clear and sunny (even something a bit like balmy) as we warmed up to play. Malvern had 15 to start and Bendigo 13.
The game was a lopsided affair, with Malvern controlling the lion’s share of possession throughout. Their ball movement and stmore

Match Report 9 May 2015 Rnd 5 Bendigo v Melb Uni

On Saturday, the Warhawks travelled to Parkville to battle Melbourne University under threatening skies and a prediction of showers. However, they never came, and we even had some sun to shoot with in the third quarter.
Uni had a predominantly-youthful 16 to start, Bendigo had 13.
Bendigo got the opening goal through Alex Orr, as he shruggemore

Match Report 2 May 2015 Rnd 4 Bendigo v MCC

Another awesome, sunny Autumn Saturday at Maiden Gully, and the Bendigo Warhawks hosted the MCC division 3 team. Coming off a confidence-building win the week before, the Warhawks felt that they had a definite chance to make it two in a row.
MCC started with 10 players, but eventually had 11 to play, Bendigo had 13. The opening quarmore

Match Report 25 April 2015 Rnd 3 Footscray vs Bendigo

Well, I may as well start out by saying WE HAD A WIN!!!

On Saturday, the Warhawks assembled at Angliss Reserve in Footscray, with some dirty clouds overhead and a wet, slippery surface to warm up on. However, turning up to this club is always a great catch up. People stick around the Footscray club forever and walking in, me and the older guys in our club got a few familiar “G’days”. While I mamore

Match Report on Division 3 Lacrosse, Bendigo vs Eltham at Maiden Gully 18/4/15
A beautiful clear Autumn day and a few close sets at the kids’ tennis had me running a bit late coming into Bendigo. Nearly there......until I remembered that Maiden Gully is still about ten minutes away. I needn’t have worried, Eltham were still waiting on a car load to turn up to get a bare ten. Bendigo had 12 to stamore

Match Report 11 April 2015 Rnd 1 Bendigo v Williamstown

The first game for 2015. Hoping for a fixture draw to ease us into the season, instead, our opening round saw us travel to Greenwich Reserve, a maritime setting in a nice part of Williamstown, where we were greeted by a young Williamstown side, spearheaded by ex-Australian player Darren Gibson. Not an entirely happy prospect. The Warhawks managed to field 12 players, while Williamstown had a fullmore
