Lakers steamroll Undera to get back to winning ways.CHALPAT SONTI July 31, 2014 3:38am
The smallest player in the under-18 game, Nagambie's Kyle Ogden, hurdles the largest, Undera's Filip Soerensen, in his effort to get the ball.
A great defensive effort was once again the key to Nagambie’s senior football side returning to winning form on Saturday.
The Lakers strangled the life out of Undera to win what was expected to be a hard-fought game by almost 10 goals. It was just what the doctor ordered after the disappointing loss at Merrigum the previous week.
And it began at the start. While the Lions might have been expected to be fired up, given they are scrapping it out for one of the last finals spots, it was Nagambie who were even more determined and held off that challenge.
The Lakers’ best efforts this year have been when their defensive press is working, and it was again on Saturday in a four-quarter effort.
Nagambie had about three times as many inside 50s as Undera, and made the most of them on a surface that has held up well despite the rain.
