PJFC FUNDRAISING GALA NIGHT
ON behalf of the PJFC community, we would like to say a massive thank you to the PJFC Fundraising Gala Committee; Susannah Van der Venne, Carrie Gourlay, Deb Lawson, Mary Jesudason, Jo Harris and Charlotte Harrison for all the work they put into our wonderful gala dinner last Thursday.
It was a great night, enjoyed by all in attendance. We raised well over $30,000 and still counting!
UNDER 18 BOYSPRAHRAN
bounced back from a forfeit the previous week to record a thumping 114 point win over St Paul’s in their first home game of the season at Como on Sunday.
The undermanned St Paul’s were kept goalless against a Two Blues team, regraded down to Division 3, and boosted by the return of a host of players from injuries and unavailability.
Two 100 game milestoners - Liam Cornish and Tom Dixon - added extra significance to the game and the boys responded with six goals in the first quarter. The boys were relentless, which paved the way for the convincing win but more importantly steeled themselves for the challenges ahead.
Archie Stoney, in his first game, rucked gallantly all day with Max James. Tom Marriner showed his class up forward, setting up many scoring opportunities. 100 gamer Cornish worked tirelessly all day and kicked three goals to cap a special day, and Kip Scarborough capped off a consistent month of footy as stand in captain.
Overall a great result and reward for effort after a challenging month.
Next game for the boys is v Mordialloc-Braeside next Sunday 12.30 pm at Walter Gate Reserve. PRAHRAN 6-6 11-10 13-16 16-21 (117)
ST PAUL’S 0-0 0-0 0-2 0-3 (3)UNDER 18 GIRLSTHE
U18 girls had an early morning game, in the rain, at a muddy Peanut Farm this week. With 11 players missing through illness and injury; the theme for the match quickly became “No Excuses!”
Getting off to a fast start, Prahran set the tone for the match and took advantage of kicking into the wind. An uneventful 2nd
quarter had the Two Blues leading at half time but it wasn’t until the end of a dominant third quarter (five scoring shots to zero) that it felt like we had the game on our terms.
As the rain got heavier in the fourth quarter, it was clear that PJFC would extend their undefeated run to 6 games. This week, they play the only other undefeated team in the competition.
Sunday, 4 June. Prahran U18G v Beaumaris U18G @ 2pm, Como Park.
Goals: Hudson, Norbury, Williams, Ignjic
Best: Miller, Faulks, P. JuricicPrahran Junior Football Club
