MDU fought it out against a tough Stony Creek side, but ultimately the points belonged to the Lions.

In a scrappy game, getting points on the board was difficult for both sides. The defence worked hard to fend off the forwards, and just seven points separated to the two sides going into quarter time.

MDU kept its head in the game during the second quarter, keeping Stony Creek to just three behinds.

Midfielder Matt Harris was the star of the show, getting the ball out from the bottom of the pack and moving it well for MDU.

Ruckman Michael Smith was also a stand out, winning the centre clearance and demonstrating some massive tackles.

The Lions were struck down when full forward Kerem Baskaya was yellow carded 10 minutes into the quarter.

At half time, the Lions had its nose in front by just four points – it was still anyone’s game.

Coming into the second half, the Lions lifted its tempo and started playing some hard footy.

Kicking four goals in the third quarter, it left MDU in its dust.

In true MDU spirit, the team continued to fight in the last quarter and kept the Lions to one goal. Unfortunately, it was unable to put up a score of its own.

The final score was Stony Creek 7.14.56 to MDU 3.2.20.

MDU will finish its season against Tarwin next week, as it will have a bye in the final week of the home and away season.

Having defeated powerhouse Toora on Saturday, MDU anticipates Tarwin will be up and about this weekend.

MDU want to finish its season with a strong four quarter effort, demonstrating its fighting spirit.

Stony Creek will come up against the Allies at the Devon oval.
