Another beautiful day was upon the Hallam Hawks as the boys and girls went into battle in their respective teams. For the seniors, it was redemption coming up against Doveton Eagles in the match of the round and a quick reminder was given about Doveton knocking us out of contention in the finals series last year, which was all that was needed to spark a first half blitz. Early goals to Matty Neve and big man Rob Mackay got the boys firing with the midfield run and spread led by co-captain Manny Peresso evident early in the contest. The boys never faulted leading by 45 points at the main break.
Nothing could stop the mighty hawks in the second half, as they went on to win convincingly by a total of 79 points and for the first time ever beating Doveton. Phil Ward was rewarded for his efforts with the SFNL Blackchrome player of the day and rightfully so. Phil should be commended for his work rate and tenacity week in week out.

Earlier in the day our Under 19’s showcased the future of Hallam footy in years to come as the boys took another win with a convincing 142 point win over Doveton. Connor Carlyon was the Hawks best with Alex Mackenzie slotting through 6 of Hallam’s 23 goals on the day. A great effort
Onto Netball News now and massive effort coming out of our Division 8 girls with a 1 point win! This makes it there 2nd win of the year and the girls are looking to take that momentum into next weekend’s match. Division 6 girls just fell short by 7 goals but Coach Simone Miller was full of praise for the girls as they never gave up all day. From a Netball Operations front – 4 wins in Hallam’s inaugural year and it is only round 6 is testament to the work that Tracey Ruka and Simone Miller are doing on and off the court. We are so looking forward to see some more great results over the coming weeks in this space
On a wet wintery day at the Nest our Woman’s football team looked to produce their 1st win of the year. In a Milestone game from Club Legend Chloe Marquison as she ran out for the 150th time, Hallam hawks were on the back foot early as Highett kicked into the breeze in the first quarter. It was much of the same all day as Highett ran out to win the game by 20 points. Although it has taken a few weeks to concur up some good football, a new group of girls are still learning the art of the game and we are sure they will take it up to the best later in the year.
Round 7 sees Hallam Hawks at Home to Dandenong – We look forward to seeing you there
