Lions can’t make it two in a row against Roos

Myrtleford Times - - Classifieds -

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.

Whorouly trav­els to Moyhu af­ter this week’s in­ter­league bye.
