Over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend, MU Soccer Club members wore spotted tape to support Ties for Lives’ SPOT campaign, aimed at spreading awareness about the signs of depression and anxiety. The Women’s State League 1 reserves team were utterly dominant, defeating Eltham Redbacks 11 – 0, as Tiffany Siy scored 4 goals and Esther Suckling bagged a hattrick. Congratulations also to Club stalwarts Elysia Patsakakos, Maddie Russo and Aisling Callanan, who all played their 50th games for the Club.
For the Men, the State League 4 team came back from being 3 – 1 down at halftime to draw 4 – 4 against Marcellin Old Collegians last Friday in a catch-up round. Harvey Orel scored a brace, while Sean Michael and Raimond Spiller added a goal each.
The Men’s Premier League team at MU Hockey Club came back from 3-1 down at halftime to win 4 – 3 in a thrilling contest versus Mentone, elevating them to 3rd on the ladder after 10 rounds played. Oscar Wookey impressed again with a 2-goal haul.
MU Lightning returned to the top of the Victorian Netball League Championship ladder after thumping the Selkirk Sovereigns 89 – 39. The team has lost just one game so far this season.
MUWFC had two players selected for the Big V side against Adelaide Footy League in the second instalment of the women’s representative game. The Club’s Ruby Grounds captained the side, also earning a spot in the bests, and was joined by forward Caitlin Greiser as the Victorian women won 5.12 – 42 to 2.0 – 12. The Club have also launched their Pride jersey ahead of their VFL Pride Match against Darebin Falcons on Saturday 23 June in Hamilton. Check out the match report from last year’s event.
