Nagambie senior football side stays in the KDFL top two after disposing of Ardmona.CHALPAT SONTI July 2, 2014 3:06am
At first glance, it might have seemed cause for concern that Nagambie was trailing Ardmona after the first quarter of their clash on Saturday, but that wasn’t really the case.
The second-placed Lakers were two goals behind the battling Cats, but the home side had kicked with the aid of what was estimated as a six-goal breeze.
That turned out to be an accurate prediction as Nagambie booted six goals to none in the second term and feasted off inaccuracy in its opponent after that to cruise to a 57-point victory.
And that was despite having seven regulars missing with injury. On a dreary day, Danny Haysom was the side’s best, well backed up by Willie Tranter, Ben Hutton, David Price, Jack Williams and Jayden Gleeson.
Coach Linc Sullivan, who missed the game (see Between the Lines on this page), was looking forward to getting a few players back ahead of a home game against Girgarre on Saturday.
Brett Connors, Daniel Hall, Jackson Hutton and Tommy Stevens should all return, and comebacks are getting closer for Michael Shiels, Steve Barber and Mark Nolan.
Sullivan knows his side should comfortably beat the struggling Roos, but wants a better level of intensity over four quarters from his side.
‘‘It’s a similar sort of situation to Ardmona,’’ he said.
‘‘They’ll be competitive for a good bit of the game. Obviously we do have lapses but we don’t want it to happen three or four times a quarter. Hopefully against Girgarre we can sustain it for a long time.’’

For the second time in three weeks, lack of numbers meant Nagambie had to forfeit the game.
The Lakers were always up against it playing the top-of-the-table Cats and while they fought hard — and were in with a show at three-quarter time — two scoreless quarters didn’t help their cause in going down by five goals.
Brayden Biggs kicked two of Nagambie’s three goals and was the best player along with the other goalkicker in Jarryd Shepherd, Bo Kelly, Connor Lyons, Michael Watson and Diezal Smith.
