It was another bumper round of Under 17 football in the South Metro Junior Football League (SMJFL).

Here is our weekend wrap:

Division 1 – 

A haul of five goals from Ryan Macdermid helped Mordialloc Braeside to a commanding victory away to Cheltenham, who pulled away after a closely fought first-half with 11 goals to two after the main break. Beaumaris produced a mammoth score to overpower East Malvern at home, with Harrison Houlahan (8) and Cooper Ryan (7) combining for over half their score. Perhaps the match of the round was left to Ormond and Dingley, with the latter running out 17-point winners despite the best efforts of the home side in the final quarter.

Division 2 – 

St Peters continued to march on in Division 2 with another victory, this time a tight tussle with South Melbourne who despite a four goal to one last term, fell just short of the division frontrunners. However, St Bedes/Mentone continue to keep the pressure on with a 45 -point victory over St Kilda City, with 10 individual goal-kickers the most pleasing aspect to come from the match. Meanwhile,  Ajax produced another dominant win and in the process, kept Oakleigh goalless until the last quarter in a remarkable effort.

Rounding out Division 3, Beaumaris remain the only undefeated team after their 89-point victory over Caulfield Bears followed by four teams on two wins after Round 3. Mordialloc Braeside (W), East Sandringham Rovers (W), Ormond (L) and Murrumbeena (W) all lead the chasing pack, while Caulfield and Ajax continue to search for their first wins.
