Undermanned Samaria Suns lose to Sunbury
ON Sunday, the Samaria Suns travelled down the highway to Clarke Oval in Sunbury to face the Sunbury Lions.
The undermanned Suns would be boosted with numbers thanks to Melton and the Woodend Hesket.
The first quarter would see the Lions get the early jump on the Suns who struggled to get the ball into the forward line.
It wasn’t until midway through the second quarter that the Suns were able to warm up, however, by this time the Lions had a commanding lead.
Coach Kyle Pugh was happy with how the team started working together and this was evident with the third term being a much closer contest between the two sides.
This was in part to the great run from Darby Morrison who was certainly leading by example, creating plenty of pressure and movement forward.
In the end the Lions ran away with the win by 79 points.
Sunbury 16.11-107 d. Samaria Suns 4.4-35
Goals: P. Symes 3, K. Pugh 1
