Finals - Week 2 at Eltham
After a fabulous finals day of lacrosse out at Altona last week, with a number of games going to overtime, or just being decided by a single goal margin we head to Eltham Lacrosse Club for week two.
Last week, Willy had a clean sweep of their 2nd semi-final games in all four senior divisions, so they will save on petrol money next week, since they only have U14's Grand Final at 9:30 am. The big question for these two weeks is going to be who they'll be up against to stop them taking clean sweep of all the senior flags. We will need to trawl through the history books to find out whether there's been a senior clean sweep in Victorian lacrosse before?
Malvern had all three of their senior games go through to overtime, going down by a goal in both Div 3 and Div 1, before finally getting across the line over Footscray in State League, in their first State League final since the flag of 2002.
Eltham-MCC pushed Malvern close in U16's, taking the lead in the last, before Malvern was able to regain the lead and hold onto the ball in the final moments.
Willy were too strong for the REDS combine in the U14's, jumping out to a big lead early, and keeping a steady margin from then on.
Moreland Div 3 weren't able to finish the job keeping with Camberwell for the first half, but falling away in the third quarter.
In the 14's and 16's grannies, Footscray go in with their tails up. Willy will be looking to upset Footscray's undefeated record in the U14's, a hard ask since no team has got closer than 6 goals to them this far. Malvern will be looking to regain their top spot, after going through the regular season undefeated, until Footscray knocked them off in the 2nd semi.
In the 18's, the north-eastern Eltham-Surrey combine takes on the south-eastern Southern Supremes combine for the right to play Willy in the granny. Their 4 clashes so far have been two apiece, Southern Supremes have done a lot better in the games they've had the numbers to play real games.
So, get down to Eltham for another exciting, fun filled day of lacrosse, and if all become too much, you can take a trip on the Eltham Minature railway line if it all gets too much!
