Li­ons thrash lowly Bats

Myrtleford Times - - Classifieds -

WHOROULY has un­der­lined the dis­tance be­tween them and the com­pe­ti­tion’s bot­tom three teams with an em­phatic 18.18.126 to 5.7.37 victory over Gooram­bat on the week­end.

The Li­ons who sit just one place ahead of the Bats on the lad­der were dom­i­nant from start to fin­ish, al­though they were in­ac­cu­rate in the third term kick­ing seven straight be­hinds.

They kicked five, seven and six goals in the other three quar­ters with Jakeb Meyer (six goals) and Andy New­ton (five) in top form.

Paul Glanville, Ben Paul and Ben Knee­bone were the best play­ers for Whorouly.

In the re­serves, the Li­ons re­main a math­e­mat­i­cal fi­nals chance af­ter a dom­i­nant 163-point win where Gene Marek booted 12 goals.

Marek has now booted 55 goals for the sea­son at re­serves level to go with his five from two se­nior games.

In the A grade net­ball, the Li­ons fi­nals hopes have been dashed fol­low­ing a loss to the Bats in a vir­tual elim­i­na­tion fi­nal.

B Re­serve, C grade and the un­der 15 how­ever, all look likely to fea­ture in fi­nals ac­tion.

Each Li­ons teams will face a stern but winnable test when they travel to Whit­field to take on King Val­ley this week­end.

The Roos are con­sis­tently among the com­pe­ti­tion’s top six across all grades though they are un­likely to make any sig­nif­i­cant in­roads to­wards a premier­ship.

Whorouly then re­turn to the Recre­ation Re­serve for the fi­nal game of the year against Moyhu on Au­gust 18.
