Last-quar­ter ef­forts not enough for a win

Seymour Telegraph - - SPORT -


Sey­mour gave up a slim firstquar­ter lead to lose to Mans­field by 13 points.

The Lions led by three points at the first break, largely thanks to a way­ward kick­ing Mans­field which strug­gled to find its scor­ing boots.

They even­tu­ally did and the Ea­gles edged ahead in the sec­ond.

A dis­ap­point­ing third quar­ter saw Sey­mour fail to reg­is­ter a score while Mans­field ex­tended its lead out to 23 points.

The Lions were more dom­i­nant in the fi­nal term, kick­ing three goals to the Ea­gles’ one, but their last-quar­ter ef­forts weren’t enough to reel in the home side.

Score: Mans­field 5.14 (44) d Sey­mour 5.1 (31). Goals: B. Tar­ran 4; H. McLean. Best: B. Tar­ran, J. Zuc­cala, J. Mor­gan, B. Le Cerf, D. McLarty, H. McLean.

Their 11-point lead quickly blew out to 32 points thanks to a fruit­ful third quar­ter.
