Re­serves drop off the pace

Seymour Telegraph - - SPORTS -


The Lions’ re­serves lost in a com­pet­i­tive but low-scor­ing con­test at Kings Park on Sun­day.

Sey­mour got off to a fly­ing start against Mans­field, kick­ing three goals and keep­ing the Ea­gles goal­less in the first quar­ter.

Mans­field was quick to re­turn the favour as the Ea­gles tight­ened their belts in their back line and re­stricted Sey­mour to just one point in the sec­ond.

The Lions led by two points at the long break and the game re­mained close through­out the sec­ond half with nei­ther side re­ally able to take con­trol.

The Ea­gles pulled the game back to within a point at three­quar­ter-time as Sey­mour strug­gled to move the ball with the ef­fi­ciency of ear­lier in the match.

De­spite look­ing com­pet­i­tive the Lions couldn’t con­vert their chances, kick­ing a to­tal of seven points while Mans­field snatched the lead late in the last quar­ter.

Sey­mour pulled the game back to within a goal, which made for a

nail-bit­ing fin­ish, but the Lions couldn’t find a ma­jor and went down by five points at home.

Score: Sey­mour 4.10 (34) lt Mans­field 5.9 (39)

Goals: R. Kliemt 3; H. Robert­son. Best: M. McLean, T. Martin, H. Szczykul­ski, H. Robert­son, J. Durham, R. Kliemt.


Sey­mour’s un­der 18s bounced back from last week’s loss to Rochester with a con­vinc­ing 36-point win over Mans­field.

The Lions made a strong start to lead by 17 at the first change but Mans­field was by no means out of the con­test.

The Ea­gles ap­plied pres­sure to keep the Lions quiet in the sec­ond and bring the game back to within two goals at three-quar­ter-time.

An in­spir­ing fi­nal quar­ter from Sey­mour’s young­sters saw them boot six goals to Mans­field’s two, fin­ish­ing com­fort­able six-goal win­ners. Score: Sey­mour 12.14 (86) d Mans­field 7.8 (50) Goals: H. Kaak 4; H. Jones, S. Durham, K. Grant 2; D. Hock­ley, F. Lewis

Best: H. Kaak, D. Fisher, H. Jones, S. Durham, N. Davey, D. Hock­ley.

Sent to safety: Jor­dan Hock­ley makes a hand­pass away from dan­ger.

Look­ing for a gap: Ja­son Cole looks to kick in­side the for­ward 50.

Away: Bran­dyn Gren­fell gets a hand­pass out in a squeeze.
