Albert Park got recorded their first win of the season with a gutsy 6-4 win over Albert Park. Elisee scored a double, Thao Pham, Hung Do & Bang Oc with singles in the rout. Alex Victory’s FC Hawthorn will be kicking themselves after playing well but losing their second match in a row. Ex Melbourne Uni men Udit Dharwan, Morris Edwards & Daniel Van Reyk kicked the goals for Hawthorn who will be looking for their first win against FC Melbourne next week.
Elsternwick beat Brighton 3-2 in a close affair with singles to Skoullos, Rajab & Sardoski. Its 2 from 2 for Elsternwick who won the eastern suburbs derby with ease, Mael Guillo & Alex Husseini kicking Brightons goals. Yellow card to Saroski & Skalvos were the only discretions in a largely foulless game. Brighton join Hawthorn at the bottom end of the table and both sides will need to start winning fast if they have hopes of a top four spot.
The third clash of the night saw St Kilda annihilate Geelong who were sitting equal top on the ladder after recruiting well in the off season and a solid win in Round 1. FCSK were without new signing Kundai Bere, but managed to bring in a new recruit in Anisha Methananda. The signing paid dividends as FCSK flew off to a 4-0 lead. Benni Geaboc and Dean combining well for the first few goals until Anisha got his name on the scoresheet too. A mini comeback from GFC was short lived and the score at half time was a resounding 7-2. The second half wasn’t as fruitful and the score finished 8-3 to St Kilda. (Report from ST KILDA FB)
