Cats prove too strong for Elmore in wet conditions.GEORDIE COWAN July 1, 2014 3:44am
Lockington-Bamawm United narrowly remains atop the Heathcote and District Football League ladder after a comprehensive win away against Elmore, 21.10 (136) to 6.10 (46).
The Cats were superb in the first half, kicking seven goals in each of the first two quarters to lead by 56 points at the long break, before kicking a further seven goals to two in the second half.
Veteran defender Jonathan Hay has been used forward in the past few weeks and the experiment was a big success on Saturday, as the 34-year-old booted seven goals for the Cats.
LBU coach Ady Dohnt said quick moving football was the key to the team’s terrific first half, giving their forwards first opportunity.
‘‘It was the first dry day he’s had to work with, so he clunked a few marks and kicked a few goals,’’ he said of Hay.
Assistant coach John Halloran and Marcus Angove were the best players for the visitors in their 15-goal win, while Jeremy Mundie also impressed with a four-goal haul.
Leigh Deledio and Simon Keleher were other Cats to play well.
Dohnt said Halloran and Angove’s efforts in the middle of the ground, which was heavy and wet, to get the ball out of the centre and move it forward was why they were the most impressive players.
‘‘It wasn’t the best day for footy, but the boys adapted pretty well,’’ he said.
The coach also praised the efforts of first-gamer Joel Felmingham, who played in the back pocket.
‘‘He has been playing well in the thirds and definitely deserved it,’’ Dohnt said.
The team suffered no new injuries at the game, while Dohnt, who missed out due to a lower leg injury, said he expected to miss one more week.
