Lions season of near-misses took a ridiculous turn on Saturday.CHALPAT SONTI July 23, 2014 3:30am
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, it did.
There’s little more to say after Seymour turned in what has to rate as its worst performance this year when it gave up a six-goal lead against second-bottom side Shepparton Bears to lose by nine points at Deakin Reserve on Saturday.
It all looked to be going so much better early on when Seymour, spearheaded by a rampant Jason Cole, gave the Bears the sort of lesson in accuracy that other sides had given it this year.
With player-coach Brent Colbert back — on a wing — the midfield and half back line looked so much more settled and the pressure at the contest was turning to plenty of ball and scoring opportunities.
The Lions probably didn’t make the most of those — there were a few easy marks spilled and other little errors — but the Bears seemed too far off the pace. For the first time this year Seymour held a side goal-less in the first quarter.
