Lions pounce on Pan­thers

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - SPORT - Zach Relph

HAR­VEY-Brunswick-Leschenault women over­came last round’s shock loss against Har­vey to de­feat Carey Park at Brunswick Oval by 16 points on Sun­day.

The Lionesses trailed at quar­ter time and half time, but ral­lied in the sec­ond half to eclipse the Pan­thers 4.11 (35) to 3.1 (19).

Kait­lyn Hoy was dom­i­nant for the home side, gather­ing plenty of pos­ses­sion around the ground in a best-on­ground dis­play.

The dynamic mid­fielder pro­vided run-and-carry which al­lowed Har­vey-Brunswick-Leschenault to stream for­ward and have reg­u­lar in­side 50 en­tries.

Clau­dia Por­ritt was also lively for the Lionesses, as was Emily Robert­son and speed­ster Mon­tana Tate.

Har­vey-Brunswick-Leschenault pep­pered the score­board in the sec­ond half, but were in­ac­cu­rate in front of goal – boot­ing six be­hinds from eight shots.

How­ever, Por­ritt en­sured the vic­tory and put the game out of the Pan­thers’ reach with a classy ma­jor in the fi­nal term.

Carey Park’s Jessie Gal­lop was in­flu­en­tial across the en­tire en­counter, work­ing re­lent­lessly for the Pan­thers.

Shon­tai Far­rant and Karinda Far­rant were also lively and pro­vided spark for the vis­i­tors.

Har­vey-Brunswick-Leschenault will play South Bun­bury at Hands Oval this Satur­day, while Carey Park will host the un­de­feated Har­vey Bulls.
