Round 2 Doveton v's Hampton Park
Great day had by all at the annual Good Friday game with Shaun Semmens (pictured) his 200th and all three teams winning comfortably. The seniors led by Russell Gabriel in the ruck and Taylor Joyce (11 goals) up forward had a resounding win. The reserves started like a house on fire in the first quarter then went to sleep for the next two and got going again in the last to win by 66 points, awesome game by Charlie O'Niell. Nanga's Under 19's had a comfortable 99 point win over Cranbourne B, great games by Declan, Rick and Dylan.
A special well done to Shaun on his 200th game for the Doveton Football Club.
Although Russell Robertson had a quiet day he still managed to take one of his famous speckie's, Craig got the snap (picture).

Round 1 Doveton v's Officer
Wasn't it great to finally get the season started, and to have a win first up even better.Welcome to all the new players, family and friends and of course all of our regulars and wasn't it terrific to see Rob Gittens and Andy Roberts down from the bush, a couple of old Dovey boys.
Now lets get to the football, the seniors after a slow start took control of the game and were never really troubled and went away to record a 38 point win. How good were big Rus, Pickles (5 goals), Nick, Azza, Spanna and new recruit Taylor Joyce (3goals) his one grab marking a treat to watch, also well done to our coach Aaron (flash) Davey on a first up win.
The two's bolted out of the gates to go into half time 41 point leaders only to drop off in the second half and let Officer get back into the game but to there credit they steadied and run out comfotable 41 point winners. The Under 19's were beaten by 9 points after a few players pulled and left Nanga with no bench, so the defeat wasn't that bad considering.

Doveton v's West Preston Lakeside
Here are some pictures of the practice match against West Preston Lakeside on Saturday, Both sides were well beaten but with a lot of players hopefully coming back in the weeks to come we should do a lot better against Mulgrave and Moe. I would do a more indepth report but I wasn't at the game.
