THE Seymour Lions Football Netball Seniors put their first win on the leader board following a record nine goal win against Benalla.

The star of the show was undoubtedly Riley Mason who dominated the game, with Benalla unable to match him. Mason took full advantage, booting eight goals when often left uncontested as the deepest forward.

“Mason was outstanding, they didn’t really have a match up to suit his athleticism. We made a big focus of giving him some nice deliveries inside 50 so he could take full advantage of his match ups,” assistant coach Jack Murphy said.

The Lions roared for big man Todd Lawrence whose first quarter goal was a snap. Nathan Fowler presented strongly throughout the day with some great contested marking in the forward 50 and four goals.

 “Nathan Beattie was phenomenal again, playing well under size and weight to his opponents, as was Huwy Jones who was lethal across half back,” Murphy said.

Jack Murphy and Nathan Beattie continued to dominate in the midfield, finding plenty of ball around the ground and picking up disposals at will.

Benalla bounced back in the second quarter to make it anyone’s game at half time. A seven goal third term and eight goal final quarter saw the Lions take the game away and record a thumping victory.

“We were rapt to walk away with the win. Full credit goes to Benalla who hung in there all day. We set ourselves for a big day, and we were able to capitalise particularly well in the second half,” Murphy said.

The club is looking forward to former Seymour Lions favourite David Mundy returning to play with his former team at Kings Park this coming Saturday against Kyabram Bombers at 2pm.

Mundy’s return to The Goulburn Valley League (GVL) football game against Kyabram marks a big moment for the league.

Mundy was recruited in 2003 by The Fremantle Lions where he went on to be decorated with an All-Australian Selection, and collected Best and Fairest in 2010.

 Mundy has played 376 AFL games. Seymour Lions Club president Gerard O’Sullivan said, “We’re encouraging everyone to get in the gates early and enjoy some of the other action on the day.

“We’ve got netball on from 9am in the morning and footy on from 10am, so it’s a great chance to enjoy a great day of action in a welcoming and family friendly environment.”
