Match Reviews


Mazenod’s draw against Marcellin certainly wasn’t the best performance for the year, but it showed plenty of grit and was enough to secure a top two finish.
Both teams had plenty to play for on Saturday. The Nodders needed a win or draw from their last two games to secure the double chance while Marcellin were fighting to avoid relegation. Marcellin were actually one of the form teams of the competition, losing just one of their past five matches and came ready to play.
Mazenod failed to take advantage of the scoring end in the first quarter and Marcellin made the Nodders pay in the second, kicking 5 goals to nil. The half-time deficit was 18 points.
The Nodders finally clicked in the third to kick seven goals, but a late goal to Marcellin didn’t give Mazenod much to defend in the last. However, leaders Ben Phibbs, Rob Mann, Nick Thomas and Stu Inglis in his 150th, stood tall and held Marcellin to just three goals in the last. It wasn’t a pretty way to secure a crack at the second semi final, but it showed plenty of character.

With a few injuries and a finals place secured, the Nodders were well below their peak on Saturday. In a low-scoring affair Mazenod never looked likely and fell by 32 points. Christian Poretti stood tall and Damian Macleod was his usual tough self in his 150th match

 Under 19s
The Under 19s warmed up for the finals with a solid win over Marcellin. A five-goal-to-one third quarter was enough to ensure victory and a home elimination final against Ormond. Jacob Buccella and Dylan Spooner were best on. The team

The Colts faced a must-win match against Melbourne High School Old Boys on the weekend. The Nodders sat fourth and Melbourne High fifth with the winner likley to claim fourth spot. In a tense match, the Nodders won the mini-final and progressed to the elimination final this week. In an added bonus, the win lifted Mazenod to third position, granting them a home final. Josh Cochrane was simply outstanding, kicking six goals in a BOG effort. Jake Charman and Itai Saina were also very good.
