THE Peter MacCallum Cancer Foundation was centre stage at Southern United for the matches on Saturday afternoon.

In the past 6 years the club community has raised $54,000 for the Peter Mac foundation and more was collected on the weekend.

The Premier League teams played Altona and both finished as draws.

The women started the game well, 3-0 up at half time, but the Altona team did not give up, finishing with gusto in the second half for a 4-4 scoreline.

The Altona men’s team has had a strong start to the season, with five wins and a loss, but the Southern men were not going to let that deter them.

It was a 1-1 draw with women’s coach Matt L’Hullier scoring the one goal late in second half with his trademark drag flick in a penalty corner.

The Southern United girls had a great weekend, with the Under 14, 12 and 10 girls teams racking up wins.

The Under 14s remain undefeated after Round 4. The girls took the points with a 5-1 win over Gippsland. Two goals were scored by Emilia Downes, one for Jasmine Singh and cousins Shayla and Ruby Jansz scored a goal each.

Ruby and Shayla are granddaughters of club life member Brian Jansz, while Shantel Blake, coach of the girls, also played for the club as a junior.

In the Under 12 girls Shield on Saturday morning, after the three rounds both Doncaster and Southern had two wins and a draw.

The Southern girls, with club life member Julian Pratt coaching, had a 3-1 win over Doncaster with goals shared around the team.

The Under 10 girls were not to be outdone. They put together a great team effort to win 1-0 against Mentone.
