Wallan dropped to seventh on the RDFNL ladder with a six-point loss to Macedon on Saturday.

A tight contest at Macedon saw no more than a couple of kicks in it throughout the day as both sides were locked up at 2.1.13 after the first term.

Wallan was able to pull away in the second and take a 10-point lead into half-time, kicking three goals and holding Macedon to just one major.

The Cats fought back coming out of the sheds for the second half, reducing the three-quarter time margin to just two points.Scoring opened up in the final term as both sides looked for their chance to seal the win.

Wallan added three goals to the board but it wasn’t enough to hold the hosts off, who kicked four goals to take a narrow win.

Wallan assistant coach Spencer Mathieson said it was always going to be a test against the 2017 premiers.

“We started well in the first term into the breeze but Macedon started the last term very well,” he said.

“Our lads kept coming and to their credit, they didn’t give up but Macedon were good enough to hold on.

Our better players this week were Michael Mannix, Andrew Saladino, Danny O’Sullivan, Brenton Cox and Sean Morris.”

The Magpies take on Woodend Hesket at home next week and will look to get themselves back on the winning path.
