Camberwell 3 def Malvern Black 2

In a close encounter with the Blacks, McKenna kept Camberwell in the game with some great groundballs and a nice opening goal.  Scores were tied 1-1 at the halftime break and Barber made the difference in the second period when he  dodged twice and found the net with well-placed shots.  Cowton was superb in goals and turned many Malvern attacking plays.  Ashby, Tubb and Gale were all busy around the midfield and helped restrict the opposition to a single goal.

Camberwell 6 def Malvern Red 1

Ashby showed poise to grab a loose ball, dodge and plant a beautiful pass into McKenna's stick on the goalcrease for Camberwell's opening goal.  He followed up soon after with a goal of his own and then assisted as Barber put a third on the scoreboard.  Tubb was winning a terrific battle against his opponent and came up with repeated groundballs and dodging runs to clear the Wells into attack.  Up forward Gale showed good positional sense to get free and record two nice assists.  The team celebrated when Gale took a pass near goal and rammed it home for his first-ever goal.
