But the scoreboard doesn't tell the whole story.CHALPAT SONTI May 14, 2014 3:46am
Who said Nagambie-Avenel derbies were getting tamer? Certainly not under-18 players Bo Kelly (Nagambie) and Kayd Paine (Avenel) who spent time on the sidelines after being yellow-carded by umpire Glen Loraine for their part in this stoush.
Nagambie has overcome a dogged and game Avenel side to win the first derby of the season by 50 points.
But the scoreboard doesn’t tell the whole story because an injury-depleted Swans were far better value than the end result on Saturday showed.
The Lakers also went in without some key players, but the visitors had less depth and sorely missed Don Stirling, Kasey Duncan, Cameron Gillett and Matt Dundon.
The latter’s brother Nick, these days at Coburg, made the trip up to play with two other brothers Mick and Tim.
Yet in the end, on a wet, gloomy day at Nagambie Recreation Reserve, it was the workhorses of both sides that influenced the result.
