Round 12 2016 – Aquinas

It was a good day all round at the Snake Pit on Saturday. The seniors were back on the winners list after they overcame a slow start to get the better of the Bloods, and while the reserves didn’t quite get the win, they were right in the game until the last quarter when Aquinas kicked away.

135th Gala

Don’t forget about the gala event that’s happening at the MCG next Saturday night! The ball is always the marquee event of the year, and being the club’s 135th anniversary, it’s certainly cause for celebration. The club would love to see all supporters past and present in attendance.

Tickets are available to purchase online via Moshtix, and are inclusive of a 3 course meal and drinks for the evening. Don’t miss out!

Round 7 2016 – Hawthorn

The trip down the road to the home of local rivals Hawthorn didn't go as planned on the weekend, with both teams feeling the force of strong and well drilled Hawks outfits. The seniors were right in the game until Hawthorn kicked away in the third quarter, while the reserves had a huge challenge ahead of them taking on the ladder leaders.

Round 6 2016

Saturday saw the Cobra’s return to the Snake Pit after a few weeks away, and while Mother Nature did her best putting on a fantastic day weather wise, our boys weren’t able to get the job done against the strong teams of Glen Eira. The seniors fought it out in a see-sawing game in which the lead swapped many times, though ultimately went down by 13 points. The reserves on the other hand were up against it from early on as injuries struck, and at one point were down to 16 fit men on the field, the final margin of 142 certainly not reflecting the improved effort that was put in on the day.

A big thank you to all the ladies that made it down on Saturday to the annual ladies day, a great day was had by all in attendance. Thanks also to those that had a hand in organising the day, especially Kate Kletzmayr who worked tirelessly in making sure the day ran smoothly.

Round 5 2016

The Cobra’s tasted defeat in both grades on Saturday, the first time that’s happened since the club was promoted to D3. It was the Aquinas Bloods that inflicted the defeats on a day where a heavy breeze saw one end of the ground favoured, the margin being 33 points in the seniors and 92 in the reserves.

Round 4 2016

On Saturday the Cobras ventured just down the road to St James Park in Hawthorn to take on local rivals in Swinburne University. The seniors were very lucky to get over the line by 3 points, courtesy of Mitch Szabo kicking a goal with about a minute left on the clock. The reserves had another tough day on the field, and were outplayed all game by the Razorbacks.

Ladies game on May 7th @ Aquinas

As part of the increasing development and progression of females participating in the AFL and Community Football, the VAFA has requested that all clubs hold a ladies game against their opposition in round 5. This match will take place between the reserves and senior matches. If numbers permit, the league would love to see a full match played, though they're also happy to see an AFL 9's game played.

We’ve had some interest from some ladies around the club to take part in a game, if you know anyone else that would like to get involved, please get in touch with the club.

Unfortunately due to a lack of numbers, this game has had to be cancelled.

Round 3 2016

Another week at the Snake Pit saw another victory in the seniors, though the final margin of 4 points was much closer than that of previous weeks. In the reserves, an unrelenting UHS-VU side played a solid 4 quarter game and had the Cobras well beaten across the ground, running out easy winners.

Congratulations to club president BJ Lashbrook who played his 100th game for the club on Saturday.
