Match Summary

The Senior boys were at home for the first time this year and after a week off, the boys were fresh and ready to go. Webjet got the boys off to the perfect start slotting the first goal of the day, but it didn’t stop there as Brucey Doull, Tiz, Huges, Roo and Spitta all hit the scoreboard in the first term to establish a 40-point lead. They didn’t stop there as the boys kept piling on the goals with Coach Cas kicking back-to-back goals and Brucey adding his second for the day as the halftime margin was stretched to 51 points.

Cas got the boys going again in the second half by kicking his third and Spitta added his second, whilst Thorny kicked his first and Bailey Walsh slotted his first goal for the club. Webjet finished the quarter strongly with his second goal thanks to a great snap. Ten goals in a dominant last quarter pushed the lead out to a mammoth 133-point win to kick-start their 2024 campaign.

Best players on the day were Huges, Arch, Thorny, BB, Cas and Simo. Cas and Tiz finished with four goals each, Brucey and Spitta kicked 3 each; Thorny, Webjet and BB kicked two each while Roo and Bailey kicked 1 each.

Match Summary

Round 3 saw the Senior Women welcome Wattle Park onto our home turf of Tony Sheehan Oval for our first triple header of the season. We came into the game undermanned, missing two of our key midfielders in captain Teresa D’Angelo and Stephanie Castagnini as they both sustained unfortunate injuries in last week’s game against De La Salle.

Acting captain for the week, Jess “JLo”  Lowry started the game strongly with a ripping tap down to Makayla “Mik” D’Angelo (aka, the better D’Angelo!) which resulted in an immediate inside 50 for the Trobers. Grace Molloy and Marleigh “Merl” Andrews both owned their respective wings and put on absolute clinics all day long. To add to Grace’s career best performance, she managed to snag her first ever goal as well!

The second half saw a bit of a change up with defender Issie Warrillow coming to the better half and joining the forwards to add some more forward pressure – and that she did! Issie also hit the scoreboard for the first goal of her Trober career!

Gun midfielder Yasmine “Yas” Budic topped off her stellar day in the last quarter by slotting her first ever goal for La Trobe! Down forward, Ineka “Harty” Hart also opened her account for the season kicking a slick goal in the final term.

A few more highlights included great courage from Ella Lauritsen running back into a contest to create a spoil with her eyes on nothing but the ball, Mik proving that she is definitely a D’Angelo by pulling out the iconic D’Angelo dirty look at the umpire. Charlotte “Char” Croome was rewarded with BOG as she had a standout performance running through the midfield, laying tackle after tackle and having clearance after clearance. Char then went on to complete a 10km cool down while running the boundary for The Midday Show.

The team recorded their second win for the season by defeating Wattle Park by 30 points and will take on Old Carey on Tony Sheehan Oval in Round 4 next Saturday.

Match Summary

After the Round 2 bye, The Midday Show found themselves back on Tony Sheehan Oval for our first home game of the season against Eley Park. Once again, there were a number of debutants as 6 players donned the red & black stripes for their first game. Welcome to the Trober family – Luke Vaughan, Brodyn Harty, Wil Hoskins, Ryan Cole, Zach Gebauer and Xavier Scott.

After not getting the chocolates in Round 1, the focus for the boys was to “get in first, win the ball, and put on some scoreboard pressure”. The Trobers got off to a strong start, with defender turned forward Mark “Mobbla” O’Brien kicking a running snap to open the scoring. Mobbla was joined by Adam Zimmermann, debuting Luke Vaughan (kicking his first goal for the club), and Jack Morcom, as the Trobers took a 20-point lead into the first break.

The second quarter saw La Trobe continue to run and spread, placing the Eley Park defence under constant pressure. Contested possession machine Austin “Aussie” Bennett drove home 2 goals as did Luke Vaughan, Jack Morcom and Big Zim, with Matty Wills kicking truly as well. The back six were making life extremely hard for the Sharks’ forwards, with Xavier Scott, Laughlin Cargnali and Will Barnes repelling almost every forward attack and holding Eley Park to a solitary point. The Trobers went into the main break with a 64-point lead.

The second half saw La Trobe continuing its attacking style but some lapse in discipline saw Eley Park kick 5 goals for the term. That being said, the Trobers did manage 5 goals of their own, with Aussie adding another 2, to give him 4 for the day. Not to be out done, Vaughany continued his fantastic debut adding 2 more goals to take him to 5 for the game. The 5th goal of the term was slotted by our resting ruckman Cam “Suga” Marcoft with La Trobe finishing the premiership quarter holding a 65-point lead.

The final term saw The Midday Show ramp up the pressure across the vast expanses of Tony Sheehan Oval and run the Sharks ragged. Another impressive quarter from the back 6, with Connor Burns, Ben Carter and the boys holding Eley Park to one goal. At the other end of the ground Wil Hoskins got a boot to one in the goal square to soccer through his first goal for the club before Big Suga snagged his second, and Cal Randell snuck forward to kick truly. “Sid” Morcom slotted home his third, and to finish off his Best on Ground performance, Vaughany drove home his 6th for the day. Trobers ran out 98-point winners at the final siren with the lads singing the Club song with gusto in the rooms after their first win for the season!
