Woori Wallops Undermanned Villains
Woori Yallock handed out a walloping to the Villains on Sunday. The final score was not a pretty sight for the 'green and gold" - 95 points in arrears and it could have been worse.
Woori clearly came to Marysville still smarting from the pain of their humiliating defeat at the hands of the Villains in last year's finals.
From the first bounce they set about a ruthless and systematic 'goal fest'.
Unfortunately for the Vets, a number of recent injury woes saw them line up undermanned and clearly missing some of their key players.
The 1st quarter saw Woori take a four goal lead but with straighter kicking the lead could have been far greater (3/6)
By half time the vets had only seen three single flags waved and Woori had sprinted to an eight goal lead.
More pain for the Villains was to come. The third session saw the Woori goal umpire flapping like an angry magpie (5/6) while at the other end saw no action (0/0).
In the final 20 minutes the Villains secured 2 super goals thanks to the superb finishing skills of Luke Schacner. But Woori were not yet finished as they added another 5 goals to put paid to any hopes of a remarkable Villains fight back.
Clearly Woori Yallock was the better side on the day.
On the positive side the Villains fought hard all day. Our backs continual pressure caused their opposition to miss the 'big posts' 19 times!
Coach Dean Connell paid tribute to his team who, though clearly undermanned and outclassed, put in a "mighty effort" nevertheless.
Best players Ritchie Timms, Tony Carr, Ralph Hume, Leigh Fisher, Luke Schacner, Matt Rogers and Adam Littlejohn.
In a 'call to action' Dean would love to hear from anyone who could add to our depleted numbers by pulling on the boots.
The Villains next match is Sunday June 1 away against Wandin.
