Seymour made to pay in A-grade netball loss to Shepparton Bears.CHALPAT SONTI July 23, 2014 3:26am
No-one likes talking about ‘‘losses we had to have’’ but there is little doubt Seymour’s A-grade netball side will learn plenty of lessons from its 42-35 defeat by the Shepparton Bears on Saturday.
The Bears reversed the thrashing they received at Kings Park earlier in the season, but this was a game that swung on one quarter.
In a tough, physical contest — something Seymour struggled with again — with plenty of turnovers, both sides got mini-runs going. Firstly the Bears got out to a three-goal lead at quarter time, extended that to five early in the second quarter before the Lions roared back to lead by two at half-time.
