Lakers run home with a wet sail

Luke Carr

By DEAN LAWSON
From struggler, to giant-killer, to legitimate premiership contender. That’s the story in brief for Paul Brooks’ Taylors Lake.
After a worrying hiccup at the start of the season, the Lakers have marched forward, chalking up impressive wins against highly fancied opponents.
A comfortable victory over Harrow Balmoral provided the profound moment for the red and whites and consolidated a belief that the team was a major contender.
Taylors Lake, despite finishing fourth in the final wash-up, will enter the season loaded with confidence.
The club’s recruiting strategy has fallen neatly into place and weak spots across the lines have disappeared.
Players such as Travis and Dallas Mackley have slotted into line-up, working across half back and with Luke Roberts, Dean Harberger and Deek Roberts, feeding off rebounding ability of utility Luke Carr.
The Lakers’ eye-catching player going into the finals is forward Adam Hall who is kicking bag after bag and allowed Brooks to use Brent Tough as secondary target.
Their forwards are getting a clean look at the footy with the likes of Pat Purcell, Andrew Seers, Chris Farrell and Craig Britten finding space and running the ball. Travis Hancock is also playing a key role giving the runners first use of the ball.
Some fans fear a lack of finals experience in the list might throw the team off this week, but the likes of Jason Weir, Carr, Aaron Lewis and of course Brooks are hardened veterans who have ‘been there, done that’.
