Injury-hit Seymour can't hold on for four quarters against Shepparton United.CHALPAT SONTI June 4, 2014 3:47am
For three quarters, a huge upset was on the cards.
An injury-ravaged Seymour side playing to the full extent of its ability had taken the game to a more highly-fancied Shepparton United side on Kings Park.
In the second and third quarters it had played some of its best football for the year and, despite a calf injury to star midfielder Brett Meredith that saw him leave the game in the second quarter, the Lions went into the final break 11 points up.
But as key defender Matt O’Keefe hobbled from the field with a hamstring twinge, the Demons pounced. Tim Looby, who struggled most of the day, suddenly found himself with plenty of space, Seymour was down to no bench, and simply ran out of steam as the visitors kicked seven goals in a row on the way to a 25-point victory.
