OLD GEELONG SPORTING CLUB

Congratulations to the Old Geelong Women's Reserves who created history at the Old Geelong Football Club by bringing back the first piece of female silverware to Como Park. After losing the decider last year to West Brunswick the Oggettes led from start to finish against Old Xaverians before ultimately winning by fourteen points. A huge congratulations to all the girls, the coaching team and also to Vicky Tan who was judged best on ground.

The team is made up of past students from several schools but OGGs playing on the day included Lauren Simpson (Ga'09), Emma Calvert (Cl'16), Lizzie Slattery (He'13), Erin Strong (Ga'14), Georgina Rule (EM'13), Caroline Edwards (He'09), Jemma Allsopp (Ga'15) and Judy McKay (He'13).

It's the final week of matches at Como Park for the season on Saturday.

The men's Under 19's will be playing their final match of the season against Old McKinnon/Glen Eira at 9.20am at Como Park. A win for the Under 19's will mean three straight wins to finish off the year.

The men's Reserves take on St Bedes/Mentone Tigers at 11.40am at Como Park with 2016 men's Seniors Best and Fairest Hugh McKay (M'11) celebrating his 100th match and Jacob Jess playing his 50th match. The Reserves are one win behind fourth place with just two matches remaining so it's now make or break time.

The men's Seniors Co-Captain and 2016 Division 1 Grand Final Best on Ground, Cal Wood, will play his 200th game when the Seniors take on St Bedes/Mentone Tigers at 2pm at Como. Currently sitting in ninth position and playing the top side next week away the OGs simply have to win this game to ensure a future in Premier B next year. 
Cal becomes just the 12th player in the history of the Old Geelong Football Club to reach 200 games and in doing so he joins club legends such as Steve Lansdell (Fr'98), Mark Vickers-Willis (FB'94), Jon Malpas (Fr'97) and Colby O'Brien.

The men's Thirds play in Semi Final 1 under lights against Old Xaverians at 4.45pm at Como. After a slow start to the season the Thirds have been the dominant side for most of the year so here's hoping the Thirds can win through to a Preliminary Final next weekend.

With four matches and three major playing milestones it will be one of the biggest days at the club for some time!!
