Debriefing the VL1RW Grand Final and season

Our Vic League 1 Reserves Women played well and fought hard but unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to beat the former premiership league reserve team, with a final score of 1 – 3.

Congratulations to Powerhouse St. Kilda Hockey Club on a fantastic season, you absolutely dominated the league. However, we do hope we made you a little nervous going into the grand final.

Huge thank you to coaches Matt Mcindoe and Ivan Britto for their dedication to the team. Matt met most of the players for the first time at the beginning of the year and has done well to integrate into the team.

Thank you and goodbye to Gabby Sylivris who is moving to Bendigo. Sad to see you go Gabby but so happy to have had you sharing your amazing skills and selfless game style with our club!

(GRAND) FINALS UPDATE 3

A heartfelt congratulations to the 4s for a really great game on Saturday! It was really exciting to watch but unfortunately ended in a 1-0 loss. You should be really proud of what you’ve achieved as a team this year!

Congratulations also to one of our Women’s Masters teams for a great finals run. Unfortunately, it ended in a shootout last Wednesday night but well done to all involved none-the-less.

Finally, our Vic League Reserve Women will be playing in the grand final THIS SUNDAY! They are on S2 at the State Netball Hockey Centre at 10:45 PM and it would be fantastic to have as many farmers there to support them as they battle against a team that was undefeated for the first 18 rounds of the season – only to be defeated by our wonderful ladies in the first round of finals, boo-yeah! The game was a cracker, with the Monash Women defeating Powerhouse 1-1, 3-2 in shootouts. It was a tense game with Monash ahead from the first half and Powerhouse only getting their equaliser in a short-corner after the final whistle!
Tell you what, great value for spectators!

Bravo all on a season well done!

An open letter to the Monash Monsters

Juniors Diary – THE END:

Dear Juniors,
This was not the end that we hoped for you, but it has been a privilege to coach you. We are very proud of everything you’ve achieved, everything you’ve learned, and everything you’ve become. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer or kinder group of kids; we thank you for your patience, your resilience and your humour over the years. Be proud to know you’ll be the most successful juniors that this University will ever see. We eagerly await your senior debut and know we’ll be cheering from the sidelines. We will miss all of the juniors who have called themselves Monash Monsters and we look forward to the day where the Monsters become the Farmers.
Love, Roddy & Wilko

FINALS UPDATE 2

Seven Monash teams played in finals last week and every single one of them deserves congratulations for their hard work getting there. Just two of those teams progressed further into finals: the Vic League 1 Reserves Women had a very hard fought win against Powerhouse, drawing 1-1 at full time and winning in shootouts, pushing them all the way to the grand final! Pretty good for a team that was promoted into the league at the beginning of the season and versing an undefeated team! Despite spending much of the game attacking unfortunately the Metro B South Women lost against Southern 3-1. The good news is they get a second chance for glory this weekend!

Come along to the farm at 2 PM this Saturday to cheer them into the grand final 🗣🗣🏆🏆
