Nagambie falls to second loss of the season at Merrigum.CHALPAT SONTI July 24, 2014 3:40am
Such is the close race at the top of the KDFL table that Nagambie’s 14-point loss to Merrigum was enough to see it go from leading the table to needing things to go its way to even make the top two.
The Lakers were out-enthused by the Bulldogs on a bog track, and it was something coach Linc Sullivan felt coming.
‘‘We probably didn’t go there with our complete A-game,’’ he said.
‘‘I thought (beforehand) mentally we might have been switched on but as the game evolved our mental desire wasn’t right there. Our energy and effort were okay but desire wasn’t quite 100 per cent.’’
And it was that which saw Merrigum take the game by the scruff of the neck in the second term, booting five goals to one to set up a lead the Lakers couldn’t peg back despite outscoring the home team in the second half.
