Nagambie's under-18 footballers overrun Violet Town to book place in decider.By Chalpat Sonti
They call it the premiership quarter, and while it might have been a week early, Nagambie’s under-18 football side ensured it would get to play for a flag with a decisive third term on Saturday.
The Lakers had been struggling to shake off a determined Violet Town in hot conditions at Girgarre before a half-time talk from the coach set the scene for what ended up a 70-point win.
Nagambie was slack defensively across the ground early and despite looking clearly the better side, had just an eight-point lead at the long break.
The signs were there though — onballers Nathan Fothergill, Brayden Biggs and Jayden Gleeson were dominating for the Lakers but the forward entries weren’t as effective.
At half-time coach Brett Fothergill kept the messages simple.
