DIVISION 3
A new look division 3 team took to the field in a round 1 matchup against Altona/Wyndham. The team included first game players Jacob and Mike Spilkin and Josh Rotstein along with James Faull back playing after a long absence. Just before the game started a wild burst of wintry weather swept across the ground drenching all the players and their equipment. However, a sign of how different this year’s team is to recent Div 3 teams, the team still went out i8n the rain before the game and got a good dynamic warm-up in.

The game started with a goal to Altona, however we added 2 to take the lead in a tight first quarter. As the game evolved our juniors settled into their roles and started to take control of the game. The second quarter was played at a pretty fast pace, our D repelling Altona’s attacks, our clears working well leading to some transition goals – including a ripper from Peter Dyson playing in his last game for the club (he’s returning to England), as well as some great inside feeds to Josh who added 2 more goals to the 2 the scored in the 1st quarter.

We took a 6-1 lead into half-time. The pace dropped off in the 3rd quarter but the pattern of the game was unchanged. Jai and Jacob dominating the face-off. James Currie stopping any shots Altona managed to get, and solid defence from Pedro, Ethan and James Faull keeping the ball in attack for long periods of time. We added 3 more goals in the 3rd quarter. Altona added another in the last quarter but we got another 4 to run out winners by 13 to 2.

James Faull got 3 votes for a dominating performance in defence. (Ethan and Pedro also did well). Josh in his first game got 2 votes – finished the game with 6 goals and 2 assists, and Dylan got 1 vote, running rings around the defence at X, and scoring 1 goal and throwing 5 assists.

Caulfield defeated Altona 13-2 (Rotstein 6-2, Bartlem 2-0, Dyson 2-0, Harari 1-5, Richards 1-0, Cohen 1-0, M. Spilkin 0-1, O’Donnell 0-1, J. Spilkin 0-1) – POD

DIVISION 1
The Div 1 team missed out on a game in round 1. Malvern giving a walkover. The next game will be a tough one against a polished and strong Williamstown outfit at Greenwich reserve – POD

STATE LEAGUE
State league played Altona on Saturday with a 12-10 loss, but a gutsy effort with a couple of very late withdrawals just b4 the game that left us with 13 players to start.
An injury to another in the 2nd term which meant we played most of the game with 12 players , just 3 long poles. This made man down very difficult.
Tank dominated face off for us , we had enough ball to win the game.
Ultimately unforced errors and execution let us down. We had some good assisted goals which we had been working a lot on at training. We fielded a young team , which will be better for the hit out. Some individuals stood out that almost got us over the line. In Defense, Michael Rodrigues 1st game in defense was reborn again (a natural) , Will Lettieri did it all (defense , ground balls , clears)
Midfield stand outs were tank in the face off & Liam Harari with some tremendous ground balls, Attack – with Liam Fothergill had to some nice finishing and Will our American import doing a good job opening up angles for the team.
A few basics to work on during the week to hopefully turn it around for the next game – Rob Stark

WOMENS GOGGLES

Dear Affiliates,

I write to you about the matter of eye guards (goggles) in our women’s competitions. Currently all junior (Under 17 and below eligible) girls are required to wear eye guards (goggles) in our competitions, with an unwritten expectation that this is regardless of whether playing in a junior or senior grade.

The Lacrosse Victoria Board has been considering this issue following a review by ALA who are introducing a requirement for all aged players (Under 18) to wear eye guards in ALA events from 1 September 2018.

At present LV utilises the FIL rulebook with ALA variations for our senior and Under 17 competitions. These rules allow but do not mandate use of eye guards. In 2012, LV introduced a rule requiring junior girls to wear eye guards with a view to expand this into senior grades at a later point.

Due to various reasons this has not happened sooner but is now firmly intended to be introduced to ensure all our players are adequately protected. This is seen as an important step to increase the support for player safety.
2
LV has resolved the following, that are to be considered a local playing rule and carries the same power as a Game Day Rule.
1. For 2018 and 2019
a. All player’s born on or after 1 January 2000 shall be required to wear eye guards.
2. That from round 1 2020 – all player’s regardless of age shall be required to wear eye guards in all LV competitions. With the following exemptions and notes:
a. When playing in Under 11 girls competition/rules.
b. When playing in school competitions with soffcrosse rules.
c. When wearing any headgear these must incorporate eye guards and meet ASTM F3137.
d. Eye guards must meet manufacturer’s specifications and are highly recommended to comply with ASTM 3077.

For assistance in seeking supply of approved protective eyewear please contact the LV office for advice.

During this phase-in period we seek individual players to ensure they are complying with this rule, and that from 2020 all umpires will be required to enforce this rule at the senior level.

Yours sincerely,
JOSH ANDERSON
Board Secretary – Lacrosse Victoria

ANGUS MOSS WEAVING MEMORIAL

Just over two years ago we lost one of our dear members Angus Moss Weaving. Angus grew up playing lacrosse at Caulfield starting from under 13’s and played through to his senior years playing a couple of season in State League. After some time away from the sport travelling the world and working up north, Angus’ happy smiling face came back to Caulfield and it was a great feeling to see our old friend.

He rekindled many friendships that he had built over the 10+ years he played prior to his travels but also made a lot of new friendships. Everyone who knew Angus knew the positivity he spread, that cheeky smile and no matter what was going on – he made you happy. It was unfortunate that this smile that would shine so bright had a not so happy undertow, Angus was battling depression. It was a fight that he fought alone a lot of the time and he did seek help but it was a battle our dear friend did not win.

In late March of this year the Glen Eira Council gave Angus his own memorial bench, it is incredibly fitting that it faces out onto the field where he played so many of his games, and spent countless hours practicing. If you would like to see the bench it is located just in front of the playground on the outer side of the main oval. Go take a moment to reflect, to think about Angus and the impact he left on your life, or just go to think about yourself and make sure you are ok.

As tribute to Angus, Caulfield Lacrosse Club have got helmet decals with the Angus Weaving and the number 16 on them. We will be selling them through the canteen for $5 each where all money that will be raised from these will be donated to Beyond Blue as per his mother Kerrie Moss’ request.

Remember if you are ever in need of someone to talk to reach out, we are a family at Caulfield and we will make every effort to help.
If you ever need more help feel free to call Lifeline on 13 11 14 – Tank
