Premier League 4 drew MCC 4 Goals O Colasurdo, G Hopkins, L Merret, M Singh   Premier League Reserves 2 drew MCC 2 Goals B Russ 2   Pennant A 0 drew Hawthorn 0 In extremely wet weather at the SHC, the Pennant A girls played in what would have to be the most unfriendly ground conditions all season. The pitch was very water logged and the ball was not moving at a great pace across the ground. We beat HAW in the first clash 5 – 4 and were very keen to secure another 3 points. Both teams had opportunity to score – however even the hardest hits were going 5 – 10 m only through the water. The game was abandoned at half time due to unsafe ground conditions. Pennant B 0 lost Greensborough 1 A disappointing game for the Pennant B team this week. The team did not work well together for the most part of the match and this resulted in Greensborough getting the upper hand. One player did have a great match, goal keeper Laura Anderson. When the team linked and passed a terrific ten minutes resulted but a goal was not forthcoming. Greensborough came away victorious 1-0. Metro 1 North 6 def Geensborough...
