Great Western cap­tur­ing plenty of footy at­ten­tion

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

While Wick­liffe-lake Bo­lac man­aged to re­peat its 2018 grand-fi­nal re­sult in the open­ing round of Minin­era and Dis­trict Foot­ball League, all eyes were on Great Western’s win over Lis­more-der­ri­nal­lum.

The mas­sive talk over the pre-sea­son was that Great Western would be a team to con­tend with and the Li­ons did not dis­ap­point at their first chance to prove spec­u­la­tion right.

The Li­ons led right from the get go and did not look like los­ing mo­men­tum the whole way through, outscor­ing the Demons in the first three quar­ters.

Lis­more-der­ri­nal­lum had a spur-on in the last term, win­ning the quar­ter six goals to four, how­ever, the dam­age was al­ready done.

This week Great Western should have no trou­ble mak­ing it two in a row when it comes up against Ararat Ea­gles.

The Ea­gles had a tough start to their 2019 cam­paign, head­ing down to Hawkes­dale and fin­ish­ing on the end of a 14-goal loss de­spite the ef­forts of Zac Jenk­ins and Oak­ley Tay­lor.

Moys­ton-willaura will take on the Woorn­doo-mort­lake Tigers this week, the Pu­mas keen to bounce back af­ter a 114-point loss to Pen­shurst.

Craig Richards was the only goal scorer for the Pu­mas, kick­ing two goals, and with Shane Gan­non, Ben Robert­son and Tul­loch Maxwell try­ing their best around the ground last game, will get an­other chance to shine, against the Tigers.

Woorn­doo-mort­lake made short work of SMW Rovers in its open­ing round, even­tu­ally run­ning out nine­goal vic­tors with big ef­forts from Thomas Gough, Mathew Pem­ber­ton and Jor­dan Buck­ley.

In other games this week­end, Cara­mut hosts SMW Rovers, Glen­thomp­son-dunkeld travel to Der­ri­nal­lum to play Lis­more-der­ri­nal­lum, Pen­shurst takes on reign­ing premier Wick­lif­fe­lake Bo­lac and Taty­oon plays Hawkes­dale Macarthur.
