Melbourne top Monash in Varsity Challenge Cup Round 1

5 April; Thomas Lutwyche


Melbourne University were victorious in their round 1 match held at Monash’s Frearson Oval on Tuesday night. The win sets up a Semi-Final clash with Adelaide University in May.

Ryan Sack and Sam Allen from the University of Melbourne were unstoppable up forward with player each kicking 4 goals.

A tight first half from both teams saw just one goal a-piece scored in the first 30 minutes of play – Ziemkiewicz from Melbourne and Trigg from Monash with the only majors troubling the scorers.

Monash kicked the first goal of the second half through Cosgriff, before both teams traded goals within 3 minutes of each other. However, it was Melbourne who was able to wrangle the momentum kicking 6 goals to 2 in the third quarter, heading into the last quarter with a 22-point lead.

The highlight form Melbourne being an end to end goal, finishing with Allen getting the ball 50 meters out and winning a footrace against his opponent.

Melbourne continued to pile on the pressure in the last quarter, kicking a further 5 goals - before Monash was able to finish the match with a couple of late goals. The score line not quite reflecting the tight nature of the match, with both teams showing determination at the ball and speed and skill throughout.

Melbourne’s next match, the Southern Conference Semi-Final, will be against Adelaide University, with the winner going on to play either the University of Sydney or University of Queensland for the Varsity Challenge Cup.
