Lions set­ting pace

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

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.

In other games Wick­liffe-lake Bo­lac plays Lis­more-der­ri­nal­lum, Pen­shurst hosts Cara­mut, Rovers meet Hawkes­dale-macarthur and Taty­oon and Woorn­doo-mort­lake are set for an­other tough match when they bat­tle at Woorn­doo.
