NWFL. The Wynyard Cats took a swipe at the Greenham Tasmania Circular Head Giants during round five of the North West Football League on Saturday.
Starting the game competitively, the Cats held a two point lead entering into the first break and the Giants’ lack of intensity in the second quarter saw this statistic increase to 32 points at the main break.
Booting just four majors throughout the contest, coach Aaron Tuxworth said he was disappointed by the 4.12.36 to 14.17.101 defeat.
“Our inability to do the basic things such as man up and hit simple targets was the worst it has been all year,” he said after the game.
“A complete turnaround will be required this week as we come up against the best team on current form in Ulverstone.”
In the Reserves, the Giants made a fantastic opening stance, restricting Wynyard to just two behinds while securing a 20 point lead.
However losing momentum dramatically in the second quarter to claim just one behind reduced this margin to seven points.
One goal separated the two rivals during the third before the Giants fell behind before the final siren for the 6.8.44 to 6.12.48 loss.
Meeting tough competition, the Giants started well in the Under 18s with Harry Kay, Patrick Evans and Bailey Grey standing firmly in defence.
The Giants trailed by just 11 points at the main break but failure to convert in the third hurt the home side. Wynyard stretched their lead with six solid majors to hold a 52 point margin at the final change.
A final goal in the last quarter from Lewis Park could not save the Giants as the Cats took home a 70 point win, 3.1.19 to 12.17.89.
The Circular Head Giants will host another home game this Saturday (May 6) for round six of the competition against Ulverstone.
