Un­der­manned Sa­maria Suns lose to Sun­bury

Mansfield Courier - - SPORT -

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
