MOYSTON Willaura has hit the ground running in season 2014, belting last year’s premiers Wickliffe Lake Bolac by 79 points in the opening round.
While this thumping doesn’t undo last year’s disappointing grand final loss, the win would certainly hearten the supporters as they go about changing last year’s result.
Well led by last season’s coach Daniel Guinane with six goals, the Pumas had control of the match basically from the first bounce.
Five goals to nil in the first quarter, was then qualified with another five in the second quarter to give them a 44 point buffer at half time.
While Guinane starred, the Pumas had plenty of options through John Vanderwaal and new recruits Lachie Hamilton and Aidan Bell, who all kicked three each.
The second half was just as comprehensive with another eight Puma goals while the Pies could only register two.
In defence of the Pies, they were a fair way off full strength, but you cannot deny the Pumas who were by far the superior team.
