Seymour Lions on fire on court

May 09, 2018

Seymour dominated proceedings at Rochester Recreation Reserve for a 54-25 win.

In another tight display of defensive prowess Elle McDonald and Sarah Szczykulski were on fire although Morgan Dingwall continued to cause headaches and shot the majority of the Tigers’ goals.

Ellie O’Sullivan scored 34 goals and Alana Mascitti commanded the midcourt for Seymour, while Bridgette Holt and Teaghan Bubb were the home side’s best.

Lions playing-coach Laura Carland said she was rapt with the result.

‘‘Fast paced and consistent pressure all game in defence and offence gave us a big win,’’ she said.

‘‘An outstanding 40 turnovers resulting in 21 goals shows that the girls just did not give up, while brilliant shooting and intercepts added to the excitement of the game.’’

■ Seymour’s B-grade side defeated Rochester 44-37 after a strong defensive display, with Marlee Koopman, Georgia Engel and Courtney Aldous best on court.

The B-reserves were edged out 26-21 by Rochester after a lacklustre second quarter saw the home side build a six-goal margin. Best on court were Sophie Gregson, Natalia Morgan and Kira Nelson.

The under-17s were defeated 47-35 with Bianca Schache, Chloe Symons and Lucy Zotti best on court, while the under-15s went down 54-36 with Soph Rutherford, Keely Wright and Abbey Cook best on court.
