Three on one in this contest as Tim O'Keefe spoils and Xavier McMahon and Will Brock are caught up in amongst it.

A year ago, an understrength Seymour side playing on pure emotion was cruelly robbed of a famous win at Mooroopna.

On Saturday, an understrength Seymour side almost stole what would have been an undeserved win.

In the end, a hungrier, harder and more skilful Cats side scored a deserved 19-point victory in a game that would have had all Lions supporters shaking their heads.

And what is most puzzling is why Seymour, for all its big finishes and ‘‘honourable losses’’ just can’t start games well.

As in the previous week against Tatura, the Lions were terrible early, a lack of hunger and skill (even given the muddy ground) putting them way behind the eight-ball.
