Local League Lions: Week 11

Many Lions continued to press claims for a VFL berth over the weekend.

Dinny Cleary returned to Avondale Heights for their game at home against Maribyrnong Park. Cleary was named in the best as Avondale stormed home in the last term to record a draw.
Tye Browning again appeared for Aberfeldie as they went down to Pascoe Vale at home in a low scoring encounter.
Athan Tsialtas kicked six goals in Strathmore’s 222-point win over Craigieburn and subsequently was named in the best players as a result.
Jackson McDonald continued his good form with Glenroy, being named in their best as they recorded a 17-point win over Essendon Doutta Stars. 

Northern FL
Josh D’Intinosante continued his push for a return to VFL, kicking a goal in West Preston Lakeside’s 23-point win over MacLeod.
Tyson Old kicked a goal and was named in the best for Hurstbridge, but weren’t good enough as they went down to North Heidelberg by 19-points.
Bailey Thompson and Jackson Davies continued their good form with Bundoora, as they beat Northcote Park by 28 points. Nathan Howard went head-to-head with Kyle Galloway in the ruck, Galloway making his return with Northcote Park after missing the last two months with injury, kicking a goal in the process. 

Eastern FL
Lochie Dickson kicked a goal in Norwood’s loss to Berwick away.
Liam Whelan played in East Ringwood’s big win at home over Bayswater. 

With the current Covid-19 situation continuing to cause havoc in NSW, Sydney and GWS’ AFL teams are in Melbourne and still will be in need of VFL match top up players. Sam Clohesy and Josh Guthrie are two Coburg FC listed players that topped up for the Sydney Swans VFL team in their 7-point loss to Footscray at the Whitten Oval. Guthrie had 14 possessions, while Clohesy had 8 possessions. 

Stay tuned for next weeks edition.
