Lions forced to fight to the end against Shepparton Bears.CHALPAT SONTI May 7, 2014 3:34am
There was no doubting the star of the day in the senior game - Tim O'Keefe kicked eight goals in about three quarters in the forward line.
Seymour’s first victory of the season at Kings Park on Saturday was in a game that was a bit like the weather — dour and downright ugly at times. Although there were rays of sun looking to break through at other periods, they never quite got there.
But in the end the Lions did enough to come away with a 19-point victory against the Shepparton Bears and get its 2014 campaign kick-started.
It was an injury-hit Seymour, with Paul Colbert having to pull out after not coming right following the Euroa game, Shane Schottner over the troublesome eye but with a back niggle and the likes of Jason Cole still on the sidelines.
And the Lions took part in a game which almost followed the same script each quarter.
