In front of a large, very enthusiastic crowd at Central Park last Sunday the Eltham Veterans scored a great win over last seasons Premiers South Croydon. They now sit on top of the Eastern Football Leagues Veterans Ladder undefeated from their first three games.

The first half it was simply goal for goal with not even a point separating the sides at half time. 6 goals 5 behinds a piece at the main break.

The second half was a game of defenses with just the two goals a piece scored. The panthers took the lead the final stages of the last quarter from then it was a matter of the defence holding firm as South Croydon tried to find that  elusive winning goal.


Eltham 2.5-17 6.5-41 7.7-49 8.10-58
South Croydon 3.1-19 6.5-41 8.7-55 8.8-56
