Reserves

A tight but goalless first quarter kept the Lions in the hunt but they ultimately couldn’t triumph, going down by 76 points to Kyabram on Saturday.

Kyabram had a difficult first quarter when it seemingly struggled to convert its chances, kicking 2.5 with the majority of inside-50s.

The Bombers took off in the second quarter and this was where they left the Lions behind.

Kyabram found its scoring boots to kick five straight and opened up a 42-point lead by the half-time break.

Seymour could sneak a rare goal in the second but struggled to do so in the third-quarter.

The Bombers doubled their tally to 14.17 leaving Seymour with little hope for a fight-back.

Seymour scored two consolation goals in the fourth-quarter to lose by 76 points on Kyabram’s home turf.

Score: Kyabram 14.17 (101) d Seymour 3.7 (25).

Goals: A. Rimes, B. Tarran, M. Jones.

Best: M. Bradbury, D. McLarty, B. Tarran, J. Durham, H. McLean, J. Morgan.

Thirds

It was no easy task for Seymour against Kyabram on Saturday.

In round six, the Lions went down by 116 points, but this time it was 156.

The Lions were no match for the bigger bodied and more experienced Bombers who booted eight first-quarter goals and effectively ended the match by the quarter-time siren.

It was a harsh punishment for the developing Lions who are one of the youngest sides in the league.

Seymour supporters didn’t have much to cheer about, except for a goal from Cooper Lubeck and another from Riley O’Connell-Fowkes.

Kyabram continued its demolition long into the final quarter, booting 27 goals for the game to run out 156-point winners.

Score: Kyabram 27.16 (178) d Seymour 3.4 (22).

Goals: C. Lubeck, R. O’Connell-Fowkes.

Best: D. Fisher, S. Galofaro.
