Heartbreak for Lions but only themselves to blame

Seymour did its best to throw away football game at Mansfield - and eventually it did.

Seymour captain Matt O'Keefe gave star Mansfield full forward Mitch Williamson a good old-fashioned thrashing.

Remember Mansfield. That should be the rallying call for the Seymour football side for the rest of the season.

For the Lions should hurt, and should not forget the two basic areas of the game that cost them a first win of the season. Execution and discipline — vital to the success of any football side, but which badly let Seymour down against the Eagles on Saturday.

The Lions had the game for the taking, but sloppiness let Mansfield back into the contest and the home side hung on in front of a huge crowd for a one-goal win.

It was a heartbreaking way to lose, given Seymour had fought back from its inability to find the man with either hand or foot in the first half — which to be fair also plagued the home side to an extent — and turned on a great third-quarter exhibition to be leading by two goals late in the term.
