Wellers upstage Rovers

Old Camberwell avenged for their 55 point thrashing in Round 5 with a win over the Rovers at Boss James Reserve on Saturday.


The 14 point victory kept Camberwell’s season alive while further denting the Rovers.


Old Camberwell won the toss and kicked with the strong wind in the first term, kicking 3 goals while keeping the home side scoreless.


Hampton booted 6 majors in the 2nd quarter with the Wellers managing 4 to go in at the main break holding an 2 point lead.


Traditionally known as the Premiership quarter, the third term in this game was an important one, and the Rovers stood up. At one stage, the home side held an 18 point lead, and the game looked in the bag considering the Rovers were to kick with the wind in the final quarter.


However late goals to Old Camberwell saw them snatch the lead late in the third quarter and hold a 5 point lead at the final break.


The Rovers players were told in no uncertain terms by coach Brett McIllwraith to not let up and fade in the final quarter as they had the previous week.


Unfortunately the depleted Rovers were unable to control the final quarter and while they managed a couple of goals, Old Camberwell kicked 3 and went on to win the game by 14 points.


Adam Power was great up forward kicking 5 goals for the green and gold’s while Sam Parkinson put in a solid performance on David Loates, Drew Anderson and Jason Zampaglione also played well.


Further injuries sustained during this round 14 clash bring the total number of senior players out to 22, a full team of walking-wounded.


Hampton Rovers:  0.0,  6.2,  9.2,  11.4 (70)
Old Camberwell:  3.4,  4.6,  9.7,  12.12 (84)


Best: Power, Parkinson, Anderson, Zampaglione, Blanchard, Woods.

The Reserves went down also, with Williams, Blake and Giasoumi best on ground. Giasoumi kicked 2 goals with singles to Fisher and Gray.


The Under 19’s yet again flew the flag for the club with a strong 60 point victory. Schafer, Zampaglione and Semmel were best on ground for the Rovers. Both Gleeson and White kicked 5 goals each, with 3 to Semmel. The 19’s sit in 4th position on the ladder with the difference between them and the team under them 8 points.
