Seymour Telegraph - - LOCAL CLASSIES - By Lewis Fis­cher op­po­nent. de­fence. James Brook

Nagam­bie was dealt its first loss of the sea­son against an in­form Vi­o­let Town on Satur­day.

The loss breaks a three-game win­ning streak for the Lak­ers who have looked a sharp out­fit so far this sea­son.

The Lak­ers came out strong, kick­ing five goals to three in the first quar­ter, but couldn’t match Vi­o­let Town for its hard work and in­ten­sity as they over­took them on the score­board in the sec­ond quar­ter.

Nagam­bie man­aged just one goal in the third quar­ter while Vi­o­let Town piled on five to turn the game firmly in its favour, go­ing down by 33-points at home.

‘‘We don’t re­ally have a lot of ex­cuses,’’ Nagam­bie coach Linc Sul­li­van said.

‘‘We had a good side in, but they were prob­a­bly just too good for us on the day.

‘‘We were maybe three or four per cent off them and that was enough.’’

Vi­o­let Town pro­duced a lot of op­por­tu­ni­ties to go in­side 50 and score.

Stand-out per­for­mances from Alex Tat­ter­sall, who was a work­horse in the ruck, and Kyle Win­ter-Irv­ing, who kicked four goals from cen­tre-half-for­ward, rounded out an oth­er­wise dis­mal day out for the Lak­ers.

There’ll be no time for the Lak­ers to re­coup ei­ther as they head north to face the as-yet un­de­feated Tal­ly­ga­roopna this Satur­day.

‘‘We’ll prob­a­bly make a cou­ple of changes,’’ Sul­li­van said.

‘‘We’ll have to see how blokes pull up through train­ing.

‘‘But you do want to face the good sides. We’ve had a good run in, so we’ll have an­other head check of where we’re at this week­end.’’

Score: Nagam­bie 9.11 (65) lt Vi­o­let Town 14.14 (98).

Goals: K. Win­ter-Irv­ing 4; D. Haysom, A. Haysom 2; B. Con­nors.

Best: K. Win­ter-Irv­ing, A. Tat­ter­sall, B. Hut­ton, B. Biggs, M. Nolan, N. Fothergill.
