IN A game that was expected to be extreme-

players well for a spirited match at Inverloch
between the Stars and Prom Coast.
It was an extremely even first half and with
Rex Parini weaving his magic around the
ground and Hugo Norton holding strong as
the goalkeeper, Inverloch Stars entered the
break at 2-1 with James Gilbert and Rex Pa-
rini both having found the back of the net.
What was so pleasing about the second
half in particular was the even contribution
from the team. Oscar Malcolm, Shelley Da-

Dellamina, all in defence, repelled every at-

PHILLIP Island Breakers Senior men have
stamped their mark on the Gippsland Soc-
cer League after their third convincing win
of the season with a crushing 11-0 win over
Leongatha at home in Newhaven.
At just round 3 of the season, the Phil-
lip Island senior team are pleased with
their form. The lads are fit and playing a
fast paced style of football moving the ball
around the ground with precision passing.
Coach Brian Roberts said “It has paid
off starting our pre-season training early
in the year, the lads are fighting fit, their
skills are sharp and they are playing really
“We have such great depth this year with
a lot of young guys all keen to play senior

“This year we have been fortunate enough
to pick up a few talented players and they
are fitting in just nicely. ”

Westernport Hotel, was awarded to young
Nick Duyker, who has returned to play for
the Island after a few years testing himself

Phillip Island Reserves are gaining con-
fidence after their third straight win in
the Gippsland Soccer League, beating Leon-
gatha 5–0 .
Coach Andrea Heteburg said “The lads
are playing some quality football. We have a
number of senior players coming in and out
of the reserves this year because we have
such good numbers of players all competing
for a spot on the senior team.”
It was good to see our youngsters taking a
lead role today. Our best on ground, spon-
sored by the Westernport Hotel, was award-
ed to Matt Arney who had a great game and
is improving his consistency week on week.
This year we welcome Phil Sweeney to the
Breakers and he is making his mark, stick-
ing a number of balls in the back of the net
over the last few weeks. He is showing his
effectiveness as a goal scorer and will be
pushing for a spot on the senior side over
the next few weeks.
