Lacrosse report. Division 3 Bendigo vs Eltham at Eltham 16/4/16.

On Saturday morning the Bendigo team boarded the mini-bus to Eltham for an early start (12:30) at Lower Eltham Park. It was always going to be a big day. We played Eltham at Eltham as our last game of last season, and with depleted numbers, we were roundly thrashed. So we had been practicing hard with that in mind and we hoped tomore

It was line ball whether the games were going to proceed or have penalty shoot out to decide all positions.

Luckily for most players and organisers the temperature did not venture over 35C, as Bendigo Lacrosse Association Policy is that the games would have been cancelled if the temperature was 36C or higher.

Due to the high temperature the games were modifiemore

Match Report 1 August 2015 Bendigo v MCC

Saturday was a chilly and overcast day and we had a fairly wet Maiden Gully ground to play on.
Bendigo started with 12 players, while MCC had 13 to start, and Gino’s experienced eye noted a couple of extra players added in from the last time we played them.

MCC jumped the Warhawks, putting on three quick goals before Bendigo could score through a strange looking shot off a missed pass that Ianmore

Match Report 25 July 2015 Bendigo v Williamstown

On Saturday it was pretty cold, but turned out to be a nice afternoon to play lacrosse. Not windy and with a little sun.
The Williamstown club arrived in a full bus and as they unloaded their gear, I gloomily surveyed the usual Willy talent-fest with a heavy heart. They had 16 players ready to play by 2:30. Bendigo starmore

Match Report: 11 July 2015 Rnd 12 Bendigo v Caulfield at Caulfield Park

Match report: 11/7/15, Division 3, Bendigo v Caulfield at Caulfield Park
All the way from Lancefield to Caulfield it either poured, or looked like it would in a minute. Icy big drops. All morning, the radio forecasts had been grimly warning of blizzard conditions and hail that would rake the pitch during the afternoon. Happily, it never happened and while we had dark, cold conditions, the rain hemore

Match report 27 June 2015 Rnd 10 Bendigo v Malvern

Lacrosse report: Division 3, 27/6/15, Maiden Gully. Bendigo v Malvern
Last Saturday, the Warhawks hosted Malvern at Maiden Gully ground. A gloomy and overcast day greeted arriving players, and at the toss of the coin, sun position had no bearing on chosen end.
Bendigo defence had key omissions with Ty and Dion Griffin unable to play and Mark Reader injured and coaching from the bench. So Marty Bmore

Match Report 20 June 2015 Rnd 10 Bendigo vs MCC

On Saturday, the Warhawks travelled to Albert Park to take on MCC. It’s always a pleasure just to arrive at the historic Albert Cricket Ground and such a nice change from the recovered tip sites, rough footy ovals and odd-shaped spare Council parkland that usually serves as division 3 lacrosse fields.
The weather was fine, and chilly. Great to play in.

The Warhawks were short of midfieldemore

Match Report 30 May 2015 Rnd 8 Bendigo v Williamstown

On Saturday, the Warhawks travelled to bay side Newport on a lovely sunny afternoon. However it didn’t last long, as soon as we arrived at the ground the clouds started to roll in with cold winds from the North West blowing hard. Yep, winter is only a day away.
The Williamstown team was a very different team from whenmore

Match Report 23 May 2015 Rnd 7 Bendigo v Caulfield

On Saturday, the Warhawks hosted Caulfield on a glorious, bright and sunny afternoon. A last hoorah for Autumn.
The Caulfield team arrived in stages, and we were only able to face-off going towards 3pm. Caulfield had16 to start, Bendigo had 14.
The game was reasonably even in the first quarter, with Caulfield kept to 2 and Bendigo able to score once, through a good shot from Jarrod Topp-Lowe afmore

Match Report 16 May 2015 Rnd 6 Malvern v Bendigo

On Saturday, the Warhawks travelled to Caulfield Park to take on Malvern. The weather was clear and sunny (even something a bit like balmy) as we warmed up to play. Malvern had 15 to start and Bendigo 13.
The game was a lopsided affair, with Malvern controlling the lion’s share of possession throughout. Their ball movement and stmore

Match Report 9 May 2015 Rnd 5 Bendigo v Melb Uni

On Saturday, the Warhawks travelled to Parkville to battle Melbourne University under threatening skies and a prediction of showers. However, they never came, and we even had some sun to shoot with in the third quarter.
Uni had a predominantly-youthful 16 to start, Bendigo had 13.
Bendigo got the opening goal through Alex Orr, as he shruggemore

Match Report 2 May 2015 Rnd 4 Bendigo v MCC

Another awesome, sunny Autumn Saturday at Maiden Gully, and the Bendigo Warhawks hosted the MCC division 3 team. Coming off a confidence-building win the week before, the Warhawks felt that they had a definite chance to make it two in a row.
MCC started with 10 players, but eventually had 11 to play, Bendigo had 13. The opening quarmore

Match Report 25 April 2015 Rnd 3 Footscray vs Bendigo

Well, I may as well start out by saying WE HAD A WIN!!!

On Saturday, the Warhawks assembled at Angliss Reserve in Footscray, with some dirty clouds overhead and a wet, slippery surface to warm up on. However, turning up to this club is always a great catch up. People stick around the Footscray club forever and walking in, me and the older guys in our club got a few familiar “G’days”. While I mamore

Match Report 18 April 2015 Rnd 2 Bendigo v Eltham

Match Report on Division 3 Lacrosse, Bendigo vs Eltham at Maiden Gully 18/4/15
A beautiful clear Autumn day and a few close sets at the kids’ tennis had me running a bit late coming into Bendigo. Nearly there......until I remembered that Maiden Gully is still about ten minutes away. I needn’t have worried, Eltham were still waiting on a car load to turn up to get a bare ten. Bendigo had 12 to stamore

Match Report 11 April 2015 Rnd 1 Bendigo v Williamstown

The first game for 2015. Hoping for a fixture draw to ease us into the season, instead, our opening round saw us travel to Greenwich Reserve, a maritime setting in a nice part of Williamstown, where we were greeted by a young Williamstown side, spearheaded by ex-Australian player Darren Gibson. Not an entirely happy prospect. The Warhawks managed to field 12 players, while Williamstown had a fullmore
