Seymour just can't get over the line in tight football games.CHALPAT SONTI June 18, 2014 3:48am
Everyone involved with the Seymour senior football side is sick of hearing the term ‘‘honourable loss’’ by now — but what else could you call the 10-point defeat by Tatura at Kings Park on Saturday?
A badly-undermanned Lions were as game as they come against the high-flying visitors, refusing to go away and threatening late to pull off a famous win. While that didn’t happen, it shows how close Seymour is to sides well above it on the ladder.
While the Bulldogs were missing stars Paul Kirby and Linc Wellington, Seymour only got back two of its injured brigade— Paul Colbert and Hugh Robertson — and Shane Schottner also didn’t come up after injuring his knee the previous week at Echuca. Youngsters Cam Muir and Harry McLean made their senior debuts.
And it looked very much a makeshift side in the first quarter when, to use an old phrase, Seymour were ‘‘lucky to get zero’’. The lack of accountability and intensity apparent against the Murray Bombers was still there and the Lions didn’t get on the board until Saad Saad kicked a point in the 23rd minute. But when Harry Wheeler kicked a goal after the siren, Seymour went into the first break almost unbelievably just 16 points down.
