And like that, the last home and away game for the season was upon the squad.
A trip out to Ivanhoe Park for round 13 had the CobraW’s facing off against the Ivanhoe Ivies.
The last time the teams met earlier in the year, Canterbury went down by 73 points, and this time squad was focused on making amends for the previous efforts.
Goal Kickers: K. Bulluss 3, L. Rinaldi 2, J. Edwards 2, P. Simon, P. Mercer, M. Spillane
Best Players: M. Spillane, L. Rinaldi, A. Payne, K. Lucarelli, L. McMullin
Freshly regrouped after a sobering game against last years premiers two weeks prior, the CobraW’s rolled in to Gary Smorgan Oval on a lovely sunny Saturday afternoon to face South Melbourne.
With a rare opportunity for all three teams to play on the hallowed Snake Pit on the same day, the women’s squad broke the ice off the pitch at 9.20 to take on neighbourhood rival and reigning premiers Hawthorn.
Here’s a great review of both team’s progress (at the previous bye round) in a podcast by the Holmesglen Sports Media students who’ve been working with the club the past year:
We are pleased to announce that the Canterbury Football Business Lunch Series returns in 2018. The occasion offers our entire football community an opportunity to mix and network with our generous and loyal coterie of sponsors, our parochial supporters and the CFC playing group.
The lunch is remarkable in that we have two outstanding and celebrated icons of our great game, both of whom will both provide critical insights into the modern game and unquestionably will prompt an informative discussion of football’s hottest topics.

After the two point loss to Swinburne in round 5, the CFCW squad was focused on making amends. A fast starting Swinburne put two majors on the score board to a single Canterbury point by the quarter time siren.
