Sunbury coach Rick Horwood has no doubt the Lions are capable of turning the tables on Bacchus Marsh if they meet again in the Ballarat Football League grand final.
Sunbury coach Rick Horwood
Horwood was encouraged by the way Sunbury responded to Bacchus Marsh’s flying start, but obviously disappointed that his charges allowed the Cobras what turned out to be a match-winning start.
“They came to play. We didn’t.
“They were more committedat the football.We were second to ball.”
Horwood said while the response after thesluggish start was encouraging, the efforts to get back into the game had taken a toll.
“Chasing down big margins takes its out of you.”
He said unless you could wrest the lead,it was difficult to maintain the effort.
Horwood was also pleased with Sunbury’s conversion rate from inside 50m at various times throughout the game, but it was all about playing smarter. in the first place.
Over the day the Lions simply did not create the same opportunities that Bacchus Marsh was able to do with 33 scoring shots to 20.
There waslittle between Bacchus Marsh and Sunbury on the scoreboard between quarter time and 25 minutes into the last term.
The Cobras added 10.12 to Sunbury’s10.2.
It was only in the dying minutes that Bacchus Marsh opened up for a second time with fourgoals by the deadly duoof Jarrah Maksymow and Damien Cupido.
On-field was not the only place to contrast the teams.
While Bacchus Marsh squeezed in the vicinity of 150 fans and officials in the rooms post-match, Sunbury had only ahandful of people around it as it licked its wounds.
