Last weekend, the Elgar Park Dragons (the new footy team in Melbourne with predominantly players of Vietnamese descent) entered a state of shock when they were beaten convincingly by Whitefriars - and that was despite the fact that their “away” match was generously converted into a home match for the Dragons.
Alas, this is not shaping up to be the Dragons month as they have now suffered their third straight loss and, accordingly, slip to seventh place on the ladder.
The Short Vietnam Swans Prez, ably assisted by Swans’ players, Sam Grigg and Will Martin during a rigorous night (on the training track in Hanoi towards the end of last year) , deepened the Dragons’ shock when he revealed that back in 1984, he was the School Captain of Whitefriars College. An unheard of coincidence.
This piece of very interesting trivia is not expected to significantly ease the Dragons’ pain.
Round 9’s Scores:
Whitefriars 14.10.94 def. Dragons 5.13.43
Goal Kickers: K. Nguyen, J. Pi, J. Tran, H. Vuong, V. Do
Best Players: J. Tran, T. Thoi, H. Vuong, J. Pi, V. Do, A. Do
Next week, the Dragons play Old Westbourne who are sitting on the bottom of the ladder. It’s hoped that the Dragons will use this match as an opportunity to turn around their mid season slump. The Swans wish them well.
