Lions can’t make it two in a row against Roos
WHOROULY was unable to follow up last week’s five-goal win over Goorambat with its third win, suffering a 32-point loss to King Valley in Ovens and King football on Saturday.
The Lions were held at arm’s length by the early season surprise packet, with the Roos securing a 13.9 (87) to 8.7 (55) victory to be equal with Benalla and Tarrawingee with a 5-1 record.
Bryce Hooper and Matt Charleston racked up plenty of touches in Whorouly’s midfield but the Lions struggled to find a consistent avenue to goal.
Andy Newton was again well held kicking just two goals while coach Jakeb Meyer could only manage one major after a six-goal performance the week before.
Whorouly’s defence did an excellent job to keep King Valley spearhead Daniel Bruce to just two goals after going into the clash with 25 majors, but Beau Wheeler again showed his GOOD CAUSE: Whorouly held its annual Pink Day on Saturday with players and coaches including Duane Maloney, Ange Godley, Jakeb Meyer, Annette Byrne and Paul Glanville donning the flamboyant colours in support of Breast Cancer Network Australia.

The Lion’s reserves also went down, being beaten 131 to 45 as Chas Pianegonda and Jason Gilbert were again the standouts for the home side.
Success was also hard to come by on the netball court for the home side with Whorouly’s B grade the only team to claim four points on the day after a comfortable 43-28 win led by Sarah Weimer and Sophie Morey.
Despite a big game from Kaitlin Paul, who shot 32 goals from 37 attempts, the Lions lost 37-49 in A grade.
In other results B Reserve lost 36-45, C grade were trounced 21-59 and in close match the under 16s were pipped 17-20.
