Seymour too slick

By Lachlan Durling

A SMOOTH Seymour side showed the Bombers girls how it’s done in a 22-goal defeat, 39-17.

With Seymour having suffered only two losses for the season, Bombers co-coach Holly Butler said the A graders knew they were in for a tough day.

“They are a really skilled side and so it was a challenge, but there were some positives to take away and some areas for improvement,” Butler said.

“Shani Clark had her best game for the season. The defensive end worked really hard to get constant balls back to convert them, but that was our issue.

“We didn’t take advantage of every opportunity.”

Butler said the focus going forward will be on maintaining ball speed and developing stronger links through the court.

Clark was best on for the day for her efforts in defence, Lara Cunningham got the encouragement award for holding her own and putting in the hard yards to get the ball to the ring.

“Seymour is a quality side so we shouldn’t walk away too disappointed,” Butler said.

This week the Bombers host Shepparton United and Butler said they’ll be focusing on making the most of their possessions.

“It’s about valuing the ball and everyone pulling together and finding those links,” Butler said.

“Our defensive end is working hard so hopefully we can get that commitment through the court.”
