Support Camberwell players at the Nationals

The National Championships are being held this week at the Footscray Hockey Center. Camberwell Lacrosse Club is represented by state league players Joel Easson (#2) and Ben Greenwood (#5).

Joel is part of the senior VIC state team and was named game MVP last night in the win against WA.

Ben is part of the Australian U19 squad, who were also off to a good start defeating NZ 14-10. This is the last training camp on Aussie shores for the team, which will be travelling to Canada to compete in the 2016 FIL Under 19 World Lacross Championships, in a couple of weeks.

Joel Easson wins game MVP honours at the Nationals

The VIC state team, trying to avoid a 5 year national title drought (which would be the longest in its history), is off to a great start, defeating regining champions WA 12-11 in OT last night. Joel Easson was named game MVP. What a great debut to his state representative career.

With new player Tom Sharp lining up the Blitz finally had a bench, albeit of only one as Colby Gale missed with injury and Miles Cowton is still ill.

A piece of history - The Saxby Training Light

More than sixty years ago a small switch box and light was erected on a post between the edge of the road and the Francis Crescent playing field at the Saxby Road end where the club trained and often played matches.  It was put there by the club to control a single low-powered light used for mid-week training by the Camberwell-Glen Iris teams. Strangely it is still there - maybe it has been given heritage listing !

U15 Match Report - Sat. 28th May

Camberwell  9 def Moreland 8

 

Playing without a substitutes bench Camberwell notched up an important victory in a tightly contested match at Eric Raven Reserve.  This kept the Wells in touch with the top four.  Jo Pagliaro was again the standout player, scoring 5 goals off the midfield and making fine running clears from defense.

The match could have gone either way in the second half but Loveday, Whelen and Stevenson chipped in with goals to get the Wells one goal ahead at the final break. 

 

U13 Match Report - Sat. 28th May

Camberwell  Blitz 4 lost to Surrey Park White 20

 

Playing the league leaders, Surrey Park White, Camberwell was swamped in the first quarter with a 7 to 1 goal barrage.  McKenna and Falconer-Boag were contesting well in the centre but Surrey had too much firepower in attack.  Back in the team for his first game this season after a foot injury, Zac Bigaignon made his presence felt with a nice goal from a strong outside shot for the Wells first score.

Under 11 underdogs diminish Malvern’s extreme winning streak.

 

With Camberwell Under 11 made up entirely of new players, we knew that Malvern were going to be tough to beat, having won most of their matches by 11 or more goals.

 

U13 Camberwell Derby is a thriller!

The Camberwell derby finished in a thrilling draw as our two Under 13 teams went head to head.

 

Both teams were short of players with a Scout hike taking 6 boys and 3 others missing with illness. The Magic set their stamp on the game with two strong opening goals with Fergus Boyd dominating the ground balls.  Blitz hit back through goals to the Whelen brothers and Ned McKenna to lock the game up 3 all at the quarter break.

Girls U11 match report

On Sunday, after competing in the regular season under 13 game, a team of Camberwell's under 11 girls participated in a round robin mini tournament at Altona. The girls played their first game against Eltham, taking a little while to get used to the softer ball and the short field. It was a good game with Tilly working hard on the crease, and Kira opening our account with a great first goal. We ran out winners 2-0.
