Lions thrash lowly Bats
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.
