Development Seagulls go down in opener


Williamstown's Development side have gone down to Box Hill by 26 points in their season opener today at Burbank Oval.


The Seagulls trailed by 27 points at quarter time, a margin they were never able to recover from, despite coming out on top on the scoreboard over the following three quarters.


When ruckman Tyler Curtis went back and kicked his second goal of the game during the third quarter, the Seagulls had piled on five straight goals to narrow the margin to 14 points, but it would be as close as they would get.


Billy Myers shone across the half-back line in his return to development football, taking many intercept marks and playing with courage and flair that seemed to spur his side on.


Midfielder Lachlan Schultz continued his strong pre-season form into the season proper, accumulating plenty of the footy and breaking the lines when the Seagulls needed it to give their forwards a fighting chance.


Developing ruckman Jayden Eales also impressed in his first official hitout with the club.


The Development team will now look to make amends when they take on Casey at Casey Fields on Saturday afternoon.


Final Score


Williamstown: 7.9 (51)

Box Hill: 10.17 (77)


Goals: Curtis 2, Dorgan, Norton, Di Ciero, Greiser, Schultz.

Best: Myers, Eales, Schultz, Carter, Carr, Curtis.
