Lions setting pace
Great Western remains undefeated and outright Mininera and District Football League leader after continuing its stellar season start with a narrow win over Tatyoon.
The Lions responded with a second-quarter fightback after Tatyoon came out firing and took a commanding quarter-time lead. Only a point separated teams at half time.
The game continued to be close, with both sides having the same number of scoring shots, but it was the Lions who were able to capitalise, walking away with a five-point win.
Andrew Cameron booted three goals, taking his season tally to 23, while Joshua Hustler and Marcus Elliott were best players on the day.
This week will be another challenge for the Lions when they travel to Dunkeld to take on the Rams.
Glenthompson-dunkeld has only dropped one game and sits second on the ladder. It had an easy day out against struggling Hawkesdale-macarthur, with a 13-goal win.
Mitchell Johnson, Lachlan Seed and Tyler Fehsler were good performers for the Rams and will be looking for another good game in the top-of-the-table challenge.
Either Ararat Eagles or Moyston-willaura will register their first win for the season when they play each other at Willaura. Both teams have struggled early in their 2019 campaigns with both teams having lost multiple games by more than 200 points.
For the Eagles Adam Barrie, Brohdie Smyth and James Pipkorn were the shining lights in a otherwise dull day against SMW Rovers last week where they were unable to register a score and lost by 277 points.
The story was not much better for the Pumas against Lismore-derrinallum, losing by 254 points.
Both these teams will be looking forward to this weekend for a chance to get four points on the board.
