SOUTH MELBOURNE – OAKLEIGH CANNONS 1-0
After a run of poor form, including last week’s shock loss to Port Melbourne in the Mirabella Cup, South Melbourne have jumped up to third on the VPL standings after a hard-fought 1-0 victory over second-placed Oakleigh. In tough opening half where both sides failed to create decent opportunities, it was second half substitute Carl Recchia who pounced on a loose ball in the six yard box after the Cannons defence failed to clear. Following the goal, the home side continued to push forward in search of finding a second, however it wasn’t to be and the single goal was enough for the three points.

SPRINGVALE WHITE EAGLES – ST.ALBANS SAINTS 0-2
St.Albans have secured their second win of the season after a two-nil away victory over rivals Springvale. Looking doomed for relegation, the Saints have now given their fans something to cheer as the season is nearing its crucial stages. Mathew Demo handed the visitors the lead as Springvale failed to properly implement the offside trap, handing Demo an opportunity which he buried low into the net. Demo scored his second of the match with ten minutes remaining as he pounced on an error by Jason Corbett, effectively ending any chances the Eagles had in the contest.

HEIDELBERG UNITED – DANDENONG THUNDER 3-1
Heidelberg United have kept the pressure on the top three with a win over the visiting Thunder. Two goals from Saso Alexovski and a strike from Osagie Ederaro were enough to hand Heidelberg the three points, while a consolation from Ashley Stott from a penalty after he was fouled in the sixteen yard box was all that the visitors had to celebrate. Dandenong are now sitting eighth on the VPL standings, however a victory over Northcote next week will could see them back in the top five.
