Nagambie far too good for Avenel in second derby this season.CHALPAT SONTI August 20, 2014 3:29am
This isn't a scene from a 1970s kung fu movie, despite Don Stirling's wonderful moustache, but the Avenel midfielder is trying to escape the clutches of Nagambie opponents Tyrone Muir and Mick Shiels.
How the worm turns. When the final siren went at Avenel on Saturday and Nagambie had come away with yet another big win over its old enemy, it appeared two things had happened.
One was that the Lakers, by virtue of its 89-point thrashing of the Swans, had locked in a top two spot and a place in the second semi-final. The other was that Avenel was in mortal danger of missing out on finals altogether after two woeful efforts.
But courtesy of Ardmona’s upset win over Undera, the Swans are again in the drivers seat to play finals. Doing so will simply require a win at Tallygaroopna, but that is not a certainty after Saturday.
On the other hand Nagambie looks to be heading for September in peak form. The way the Lakers dismantled Avenel was a warning shot to the other premiership contenders.
Early on there didn’t look to be much in it, as was expected with two sides having so much to play for. The difference was Nagambie made the most of its opportunities while Avenel, for the second time this season, had few ways to get over the Lakers’ press.
