Nambucca Valley Lions revel in night hunt

NOTHING beats Friday night footy and the Nambucca Valley Lions were treated to their first evening game ever at Sawtell.

The Lions proved they are a force to be reckoned with in the North Coast AFL competition, as they punished Sawtell 12.11 (83) - 4.1 (25).

From start to finish the boys ran hard and played hard, frustrating a stacked Sawtell side.

Under the lights, the Lions were sensational. Club veterans Jimmy Angel, club president Trent Baade, Dylan Creaser and Mick Townsend wound back the clock with some classic plays and showed they still have what it takes to be out on the field, with Jimmy Angel bagging three goals.

The Lions midfield were destructive again, ruckman Aaron Clarke was unstoppable and captain Aaron Boatfield and Jake Hare dominated their opponents, something they do week after week and it is a true inspiration to watch.

The Lions mane of the team, Tim McCormack, had a ripper of a game, with some superb touches and an all round great performance.

Brayden Pianta played a tough game, kicking a goal and making some great tackles, a big confidence boost for the young lad coming into the back end of the season.

The Lions have two more home games before the finals and are looking to continue their undefeated streak when they take on the Coffs Harbour Breakers next weekend.

They want to roar in the Nambucca Valley and the boys can play don't you worry, so get down to the EJ Biffon Sports Ground and cheer them on. Game starts at 1.20pm. Carn the Lions!

Meanwhile, the Junior Lions play their last game at home this weekend as part of the home and away series. While September 27 will be a straight out grand final for who every finished in the top two on the ladder in the 11 years, 13s and 15s. All grand finals will be played at the Coffs Stadium.
