Development Gulls pipped by Borough

 

Williamstown's development side have suffered a nail-biting loss to Port Melbourne, after the Borough held on to win by two points at North Port Oval on Saturday.

 

Port Melbourne jumped out of the blocks to claim a 16-point lead at the first change, and although the Seagulls were able to hit back to take the lead at halftime, the Borough were able to hang on 8.10 (58) to 8.8 (56).

 

While the Seagulls remain in third position on the development league ladder, the fate of their season lies in their own hands with matches coming up against other clubs circling for a finals spot.

 

Lachlan Schultz was once again the Seagulls best, relishing the muddy conditions and the hard-fought contests in the middle to put his stamp on the game and almost help his side get across the line.

 

Jake Owen was another stand out after coming out of the senior team, in conditions that weren't overly suited to the versatile big man.

 

Another big man, ruckman Tyler Curtis, was another who shone despite the conditions not being in his favour. His efforts not only in the ruck but driving the ball long were key in keeping the Seagulls in the match in the latter stages.

 

Williamstown's will now face a Sandringham side that are nipping at the heels of the reigning premiers, at Trevor Barker Beach Oval on Sunday.
