SFL Round 6 Report
Provided by SFL League Management
Huonville has extended New Norfolk’s unusually rough start to the season. The Lions were in the lead from the start on Saturday, finishing the first quarter six goals ahead of the Eagles. The home side held this lead throughout the entire game.
The Eagles came close to narrowing the margin at the end of the third quarter where they were only eight points behind, but Huonville proved to be that little bit stronger and showed a determination to pull through and widen the lead again by the final siren.
Michael Paul came out as best player for the Lions for the second week in a row, proving to be one of the strongest power forwards in the League this year. Paul managed to kick a big haul of eight goals throughout the game and was never far from the ball.
For the Eagles, Rohan Heron, Michael Thompson and Clinton Curtain led the scoring with three goals each. Congratulations to Ben Lovell of New Norfolk for playing his 100th senior game and to Chris Bomford of Huonville who played his 100th game.
Huonville also came out on top in both the Reserves and Colts games, continuing the Eagles' difficult start to the season for the Eagles. The margins were 68 points in the Reserves game and 36 points in the Colts.
