Lyre­birds prove too strong

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - LIFTOUT -

Buln Buln proved too good for a gal­lant Poowong side in the un­der 16s, win­ning 6-6 (42) to 3-3 (21).

Poowong scored first with an im­pres­sive run­ning snap, but from there Buln Buln were able to take con­trol across the next three quar­ters to kick out to a 32-point lead.

The Mag­pies scored two con­so­la­tion goals in the fi­nal quar­ter to put some re­spectabil­ity back into the score­board.

It fin­ished a gal­lant ef­fort by the Mag­pies that saw them win through to the pre­lim­i­nary fi­nal, punch­ing above their weight to push deep into the fi­nals.

Josh Pearn, Jar­rod Thomas, Con­nor Gard­ner, Ea­mon Brew, Jack Ch­ester­field and Jake Smith helped Buln Buln take con­trol.

Brian Kel­son, Darcy Burgess, Ri­ley Lewis, Jai New­combe, Mathew Burr and Thomas Hud­son led a gal­lant ef­fort from the Mag­pies.

Right: Neerim-Neerim South’s Lach­lan Guy and War­ragul In­dus­tri­als player Jack David­son com­pete in this con­test.
