Lions send Shane Schottner off in style in win over Mansfield.CHALPAT SONTI August 27, 2014 3:41am
Farewelling the champ - Shane Schottner leaves Kings Park for the last time as a member of the Seymour senior football side.
It’s taken 14 months but Seymour’s senior football side has finally done something it had struggled to do for some time — win two games in a row.
Not since July 2013, when a still-in-finals-contention Lions put away Shepparton and Echuca, before the wheels came off, has Seymour managed that piece of consistency.
But it did so on Saturday with a 59-point win over Mansfield to send club legend Shane Schottner off to retirement in the style he deserved.
It was a game of two halves — in the first the Lions were superb and the Eagles woeful, and after the long break the game trailed away into mediocrity.
