Seagulls suffer first loss of 2017


Williamstown has dropped its first game of 2017, falling to the Northern Blues by 21 points at Preston City Oval.


A poor third quarter by the Seagulls meant they were too far behind to mount a challenge in the final term, going down 11.14 (80) to 14.17 (101).


The Blues started out the stronger team opening up a 16-point quarter time lead, before Williamstown were able to fight their way into the lead towards the end of the second term while kicking with the wind.


From there the home side regained the lead, and after a six-goal to two third term, had opened up a match winning lead.


For the Seagulls, vice-captain Adam Marcon was again best afield, kicking two goals and picking up a mountain of possession through the middle.


Defenders David Fahey and Jake Greiser had their hands full with the forward line mix of the Northern Blues, but both got the better of their direct opponents and stood firm despite the constant forward attacks by the Blues.


Michael Gibbons was also prolific through the midfield, while up forward Arryn Siposs and Ben Cavarra looked dangerous kicking three goals between them.


After the disappointing performance, Williamstown must now rebound next Sunday against an improved Box Hill outfit at Burbank Oval.


Northern Blues: 14.17 (101)

Williamstown: 11.14 (80)

Goals: Marcon 2, Cordy 2, Siposs 2, Cavarra, Masters, Wheeler, Ebinger, Currie.

Best: Marcon, Greiser, Gibbons, Fahey, Cavarra, Siposs.
