Ocean Grove Cobras’ Under 14 sides won two out of three matches on the weekend including a big second half for the Walter side against Torquay.


Division 1

Ocean Grove Walter 8.6(54) def Torquay Watson 5.3(33)

Best: Charlie Eales, Darcy Harrington, Jonathon Punchard, Sebastian Carnevale, Harrison Wilde, Jack Thomson.

Goals: Darcy Harrington 3, Jack Thomson 2, Toby Duckett 1, Alex Morgan 1, Byron Hansford 1

Ocean Grove Walter notched up another win against a competitive Torquay side. The teams were fairly evenly matched in the first half but, after taking a seven-point lead into the main break, the Cobras stormed home to take control of the game.

Division 4

Ocean Grove Pearson 5.6(36) def Leopold 3.7(25)

Awards: Max Saltamacchia, Harry Lyons, Ned Edwards

Goals: Trey Morrow 2, Lucian Joyce, Xavier Kiddle, Charlie Rae

The Pearson boys were switched on from the moment they arrived and were rewarded for their effort on the scoreboard. They are starting to work together as a team and put their training into practice. Max Saltamacchia again put in a solid performance, while Harry Lyons showed he has a bit of class with the footy and Ned Edwards was outstanding in holding down full back.

Division 6

Ocean Grove Every 0.5(5) def by Torquay Stone 9.6(60)

Every put in a great effort and kept trying all day, but despite having a lot of the football, just couldn’t convert on the scoreboard. Thanks to the Under 12 and Under 14 Pearson players who stepped in to help with numbers.


Ocean Grove McGregor 4.3(27) def by Geelong Ammos Walsh 8.9(57)

Awards: William Fisher, Luca McDonald, Lachlan Page, Mason Poirier

Goals: Arthur Hardwick, Mason Poirier, Louis Belsar-Le Bel, Max Robinson

These sides were evenly matched in the first half. McGregor got off to a good start, including a great

passage of play that finished with a Hugh Rolfs handball to Arthur Hardwick, who ran into an open goal. It was great to have Henry Jankowski back in the team and he made his presence felt in the centre, while William Wakefield was solid in defence. Ammos ran away with the match in the second half, despite good efforts from Louis Belsar-Le Bel, William Fisher, Luca McDonald, Max Kempton and Max Robinson.
