It’s the end of the finals journey for Seymour B Grade netballers after a 30-goal loss to Shepparton in Sunday’s Goulburn Valley Football Netball League preliminary final.

Coming into the game, the Lions knew that it was going to take determination and consistency across the four quarters to get over the line.

The first quarter saw the Bears get the upper hand, however Madi Albers came into goal attack lifting the side with pace and accuracy to give the side hope as the Lions entered the second quarter trailing by 10 goals.

After a short break during the second term due to a swarm of bees, the Bears put their foot down and extended their lead out to 16 goals at halftime.

Shepparton were extremely accurate in goals as Lions defenders Georgia Engel and Madi Hager worked tirelessly all match to fight for every rebound.

However the Bears hardly gave away any opportunities particularly in their dominant third quarter.

Best-on-court for Seymour was Lucy Zotti, who was a workhorse across the match running and contesting the ball all day.
