14 May Lions’ vice captain challenges one match ban
Belmont Lions’ vice captain Jack Baker will challenge his one match ban for carelessly striking an unknown Anakie player over the weekend.
Baker, who was added to the club’s senior leadership group over summer, was one of three players reported in the Lions’ come-from-behind win over Anakie.
First year Lion Tyler Jones was also reported for attempting to strike an unknown Anakie opponent.
He conceded his action and will be sidelined from the Lions’ Round 7 clash against premiership contender Winchelsea.
Former Corio ball winner Luke McConarchy also accepted a two match set penalty for engaging in rough conduct against Lion William Scott.
After missing out on the first four rounds of the 2018 season due to injury McConarchy will now miss games against Bell Post Hill (away) and East Geelong as a result.
The incidents have soured Belmont’s 32-point victory which saw them initially trail the Roos 9.5 (59) to 3.2 (20) in the opening term.
MEANWHILE East Geelong forward William Hoare will challenge a two week match set penalty for striking Corio midfielder Sheridan Stack (pictured).
Hoare, who crossed over to the GDFL from South Barwon, would register two goals in the Eagles’ 46-point victory.
