Round 18 Results

It was a cold wet, sunny, wintery, sunny, then hail storm kind of day out at Brens Oval.

UHS-VU look like one of the teams to beat in both grades of D2 as they took no mercy on the House last Saturday out in Parkville.

Coach Dave Matthews threw the players around into different positions on the day as each of the senior boys had a crack. In the two it was a forgettable day as they went goal-less in Phil Mackney’s 100th game. It didn’t stop big Phil having a smile as he was chaired from the ground.

So that is it for another season, it has been long and hard but we managed to stay up in D2, we now must focus on recruitment and preparing for a big pre-season.

See you all at awards night on October 12th!

 

 

Round 17 Results

Even though The PHAFC Seniors lost on the weekend; results fell our way and we will be remaining in the VAFA Division 2 for the 2019 season.

It was a tough game against MHSOB, the House were 20 pints up just before half time and let through a couple of late goal which gave MHSOB the momentum.

For the Reserves it was a day to forget as they went down by 111 points, the less said the better!!!

We take on UHS away this weekend in the last game of the season.

GO HOUSE!

 

That’s a wrap! – Women’s footy at the ‘House’ in 2018

Last weekend, our women’s team was bundled out of the finals by Westbourne in a disappointing loss that brought to an end their historic inaugural season.

 

This young team of pioneers came together over the last twelve months to create an incredible group of strong, determined and hard-working players, who took on every challenge this season both on and off the field.

 

Getting this team on the field was culmination of three years of hard work, with Phil Mackney and Barry Cox spearheading the charge to create Power House’s first ever women’s team.

 

Congratulations must go to both of them as coach, team manager and mentors for the team, most of whom had never played our game before.

Congratulations also to the leadership group of Inaugural Captain Anna Kennedy, Becky Mason, Sally Werner, Brid Ni Mhadagain, Bri Anna May and Lisa McGowan who led their team into battle each week with outstanding results,

 

We should also acknowledge the work of a tireless support crew, especially Darra Conlon, Eddie Nyary and Josh Auchettl who managed to run the boundary, wave the flags, run water or messages and time-keep during the season, Your hard work hasn’t gone unnoticed.

 

As we look back, the team won 8 games and a draw from their 14 home and away games averaging 32 points while conceding an average of only 19 points and showed what commitment and hard work delivers.

 

Looking forward to Vote Count/ Chug a Lug on Saturday 18 August, to see who will bring home the inaugural Women’s Best and Fairest Award and Friday 12 October for Presentation Night to celebrate the season and some individual achievements for the team.

 

While the season was filled with ups and downs, one thing will always remain, the connection these women have created that will last for many more football filled years and beyond.

 

GO HOUSE!

It was a big day for Senior team as they got the points in a crucial win against Eltham, it was a hard tussle all day as the valiant Turtles really took it up to us. After a tight first half the boys responded in the second by kicking seven goals to one. The result goes a long way to keeping us in Division 2 in 2019. It was also a big day for Matt Devine playing his 100th game for the House!

The Reserves had an even tougher affair as they overcame a first half deficit, with a 6 goal second half the boys ran out victors by 14 points .

The Women faced a mini-final as they battled it out for second place in the final round of the season. Unfortunately for the girls they just fell short in a very tight affair, they now play Westbourne next Saturday in an Elimination Final.
