The trip down to Albert Park was probably the farthest we’ve had to travel so far this season and by far the most ‘difficult’ in terms of grounds for a lot of our players to find!

Thankfully, despite the grey skies and a bit of wind there was also a bit of sunshine hiding behind the rather ominous looking clouds and we were hoping that any rain would hold off until after our game.

Doaky and the Senior men formed a ‘guard of honour’ as our girls, keen to atone for their horror brain fade 1st quarter of 2 weeks ago ran out onto the ground, a great gesture and certainly a ‘spark’ for the Lady Snakes. Continue reading “Men Rd 12 – Sth Melb | Women Rd 9 – Sth Melb”

A chilly but thankfully sunny morning greeted us for our first away game for a couple of weeks, down at St. James Park. Early weather signs were of a swirly, right to left wind favouring the Burwood Road end of the ground and thankfully the sun was forecast to stay out so despite the wind, the sun would at least be keeping us a little bit warm.

After overnight and early morning rain, there was still a little bit of moisture on the ground at The Snakepit during our warm up, the centre square being the main offender, where there where a few puddles, but nothing that was going to cause any major concerns for either side. By the time the first bounce came around the sun had broken through the clouds and brought a little bit of warmth with it and a whole lot of a headache if you were playing down the clubrooms end of the ground on the coaches boxes side! Ahh the joys of living in Melbourne! Continue reading “Men Rd 10 – Power House | Women Rd 7 – St. Mary’s Salesian”

Another beautiful but slightly cold morning greeted us at The Snakepit as players arrived for what we hoped would be our third consecutive win against the bottom of the ladder, Brunswick Renegades. After a narrow win against Bulleen Templestowe and a week off, the girls had a very focussed week on the training track and coaching staff felt as though we had addressed a number of ‘deficient’ areas in terms of skills.

It was a cold start against Bulleen Templestowe down at Ted Ajani reserve and we were hoping to put together a back to back win.

The girls went out hard in the first quarter and managed to snatch the lead with an early goal. It was a bit of a scrappy start with the dew on the ground and the ball being more slippery than we were used to but a strong back line managed to keep the opponent scoreless for the whole quarter.

The once hallowed turf of Collingwood FC’s Victoria Park greeted our girls with a strong, swirling wind and sunny, blue skies on Saturday morning. A beautifully manicured, full-sized footy ground awaited us at this historic venue and once again we were lucky to have good conditions for footy (except for the pesky ever direction changing breeze).

Despite weather reports warning of possible early morning showers in the Eastern Suburbs the weather at The Snakepit was beautiful, if not a little bit breezy at times, in other words, pretty much perfect for football. Continue reading “Men Rd 6 – Swinburne | Women Rd 3 – Hawthorn”

Men Rd 5 – Westbourne | Women Rd 2 – De La Salle

It was a frustrating day all round for the Cobras on Saturday, with the Women putting up a solid fight and showing signs of improvement but going down against De La. The Reserves and Seniors missed some of the basics and were lucky the opposition didn’t hit more of their targets in front of goal.

Weekend preview

Women: Hawthorn at The Snakepit, 11:20am, 3rd round lucky! Go Cobs!

Men: Swinburne away at St. James Park.
