Lions Defeat Reigning Premiers
The West Coast Eagles led by as much as 27 points at the first break before the young Lions ran them off their legs, the final score 15.12.102 to 8.10.58
A scoreless third term for the Eagles didn’t help their cause as the Lions added 3 goals to extend their lead to 29 points.
Ex-Docker Lachie Neale was terrific in his Lions debut, amassing 29 disposals and one major as good friend and Former Cat Lincoln McCarthy kicked 4 goals in his first game for the club.
Last year’s Grand Final hero Dom Sheed worked hard all night for a career high 38 disposals — while Oscar Allen and Jack Darling kicked 2 goals each.
