Stanhope has shown no mercy in dishing out a hiding to Lancaster in Kyabram District Football League.OLIVER CAFFREY June 9, 2014 3:10am
Lancaster was taught a football lesson at Stanhope Recreation Reserve on Saturday, going down to the Lions by 84 points.
The Wombats lost every quarter to last year’s beaten Kyabram District Football League grand finalists as they slipped outside the top six.
Lions forward Eric Edwards backed up an 11-goal haul last week to boot another six as he grabbed a share of the league goal-kicking with Murchison’s Jake Rennie.
Stanhope coach Brenton Gray said he was pleased with an even contribution from the playing group.
‘‘It was a good win, definitely more a team win, so it was hard to pick out individuals, but in the centre and around the stoppages I thought we were great,’’ Gray said.
‘‘We’ve still got a long way to go — Merrigum, Murchison and Nagambie are the teams to beat and I think we’re chasing them.
‘‘We’ve got a young group and we’re going to be up and down a fair bit, but there’s plenty to build on from that performance.’’
Tom Hepburn and Lukas Hanslow were standouts, while Klint Wagstaff, Jarrad Mason and Michael Coad provided plenty of drive.
Zach Treacy and the lively Jungala Ellis will be doubtful starters for next week after pulling up sore.
On the other hand, it was a day to forget for Lancaster coach Paul Burnett.
‘‘We were outplayed everywhere, very ordinary in every aspect of the game and they were simply very good,’’ Burnett said.
‘‘We were disappointed, but I thought we were a bit off against Undera, we only played a quarter — I thought we would bounce back, but we probably only had three or four players that stood up.’’
Burnett was impressed with the efforts of the younger brigade, particularly Tom Davies and Zac Cerrone, who played in last year’s under-18 premiership.
Heath Barnett led the Wombats’ goal-kicking with three.
Adrian Dullard and David Rigney added a further blow to the Wombats’ injury list and will miss this weekend’s clash against Ardmona.
