WY YUNG and Lucknow drew 7.7 (49) each, which clearly shows how close this season is.
The result drops Lucknow to fifth, and makes the battle for fourth even harder.
Wy Yung burst out of the blocks, with the Magpies kicking just a single point in the first quarter, and one goal in the second, to be 1.3 (9) to 6.2 (38) at half-time.
The third term was all Lucknow, which piled on three goals to challenge the Tigers.
Inaccurate kicking cost Wy Yung at the death, 1.3 to 3.1 showing which team had the momentum.
Wesley Russell was the stand-out for the Tigers, kicking four, and Josh Broome was named best-on-ground.
Will Siania was best for Lucknow.Alex Ford
BOISDALE-BRIAGOLONG broke into the East Gippsland football top four with a five-point win over rival Stratford.
The Swans threw everything they had at the Bombers, including Haydn Erfurth, whose seven-goal performance wasn’t enough as the home side won 16.14 (110) to 16.9 (105).
The match was held on Sunday under the WorkSafe Game of the Month banner, promoting workplace safety. Former AFL players Peter Knights and Angus Monfries and netball champion Eloise Southby were special guests.
The Bombers led from the beginning, fending off challenges in the second and final quarters with hard tackling and precise kicking.
Best-on-ground Billy Marshall took on players twice his size in the midfield, supplying the forward line very well, while stalwarts like Cal Egan and the Stubbe brothers kicked three goals apiece, as did Brendon Rathnow.
For Stratford, despite very competitive moments, a disappointing third quarter made life difficult — the Swans kicked two goals to 3.5.
Tall midfielders and ruckmen Regan Tait and Lochie Heywood found themselves in the right place at the right time to boot two goals each.
A strong comeback in the fourth couldn’t save the game for the Swans.Alex Ford
