The script has been almost constant for the Seymour senior football side this year.CHALPAT SONTI September 3, 2014 3:39am
Sound familiar? Seymour starts well, looks competitive, then falls away badly towards the end to be well beaten.
On Saturday that was to the tune of 89 points, though the victor was the all-conquering Benalla side.
But this was a bit different from some of the other more depressing defeats this year. The Lions went toe-to-toe with the Saints early, and the real difference, as it has been against the better sides, is that Benalla made the most of its chances, was ruthless on the turnover, and Seymour was too inaccurate — by foot especially.
That extra polish saw the Saints make a no-contest of the game, particularly after half-time, and the final siren couldn’t come quick enough.
Seymour had a few stand-outs with the back six trying hard against what became impossible circumstances as the game went on, while Adrian McCarthy did another great tagging job on Saints skipper Luke Morgan. Brett Meredith also found plenty of room for the second week in a row as Benalla let him run as a loose player.
Player-coach Brent Colbert was focusing on the positives for next year after the game.
