WESTVIC U16 BOYS V CV BLAZERS
FINAL SCORE: WESTVIC 7 – 0 CV BLAZERS
GOAL SCORERS: DALTON BARBY (4), REAGAN SIMONS, JACE CANNON, CONNOR PARSONS
The WestVic Under 16 boys got back to winning ways in style with a comprehensive victory over CV Blazers at home, scoring seven unanswered goals.
CV had the best chance of the opening exchanges, hitting the post in the first few minutes of the game, but WestVic responded soon after with a well worked team goal. The ball was played to midfielder and co-captain Joe Nelson-Hill, who ran into the circle along the baseline and set up teammate Dalton Barby to deflect in from close range for his first goal of the game.
From then on WestVic took charge of the match and scored a further four goals in the first half, courtesy of Reagan Simons, Connor Parsons, and two more from Barby.
CV improved in the second half, setting up a more even finish to the game, but the defensive line of Myles Dunne, Jace Cannon, Ben Jackson, Lincoln Westerland, and Henry Bourchier held firm. A goal from Jace Cannon and a fourth from Barby saw WestVic finish the match well and puts Barby at the top of the league scoring charts with six goals in 3 games. The result also leaves WestVic 3rd in the table, above 4th placed KBH on goal difference. WestVic are again in action this Friday night as the take on 6th placed Powerhouse/St Kilda away from home.

WESTVIC U14 V ESSENDON
WESTVIC 10 – 0 ESSENDON
GOALSCORERS: COOPER PINSON (3), GILES PETERS (2), WILLIAM BRIZZI, CHLOE EVERETT, CALEB DHILLION, HARRY RINGROSE, RORY DENNING
WestVic made the trip to the State Netball and Hockey Centre, where we took on Essendon. Being in a new competition, with a new team, and not know what to expect, the team was anxious for the game ahead.
WestVic came out strong and with fast paced midfield work with the likes of Darcy Dhillon, Braden Wienand and William Brizzi, we slipped through Essendon’s defence and put on four goals before half time. Essendon seemed to struggle to string passes together to get forward, and WestVic capitalised on this opportunity.
WestVic continued to display it’s dominant hockey, and didn’t let up for the whole game. Goalkeeper, Noah Southhurst, didn’t receive a single touch for the remainder of the game, provided by Rory Denning’s exquisite defending, alongside William Durury and William Roberts.
The team played a very well structure game and after half time, the team pushed hard and were rewarded with six goals in the second half.
