Werribee City’s tough run in the National Premier League 2 competition continued on Saturday. The Bees, who haven’t won since round three, found themselves trailing 1-0 at half time against Northcote City. Northcote found the back of the net three times in the second half, to record a convincing 4-0 win. The Bees sit eighth on the table.
The City West Falcons had a clean sweep on Wednesday night against the Boroondara Express in the Victorian Netball League. The championship side had a 73-55 win, while the division 1 team won 53-47 and the under-19s won 49-34. All three teams sit in the top four at the halfway mark of the season. This week they face the Hawks.
Patches of play continue to hurt the Western Jets in the NAB League Boys season. The Jets have been in every game so far, but sit middle of the table with a 2-3 record. With a bye on the weekend, the Jets have the chance to reset ahead of a big second half of the season.
Jets coach Robbie Chancellor said they still had some work to do. “We’ve been competitive in every game,” he said. “We’ve had chances to win every game that we have played. There’s parts of games that have let us down. Sides are getting away from us in those periods. We need to find a way when things aren’t going to plan, how to work through it.”
The Westbourne Grammarians had another tough day on the scoreboard in the Victorian Amateur Football League division 3. South Melbourne Districts made life tough for the Grammarians, who were held scoreless in the second half of the 25.23 (173)-2.1 (13) loss. Jackson Brook and Benjamin Hodge were named the Grammarians best.
