THE final score indicates a hefty loss for Myrtleford against Albury, but Saints co-coach Leigh Corcoran said there was plenty to take from Saturday’s loss.
The Saints went down to the tune of 137 points, 27.15 (177) to 6.4 (40), their biggest defeat of the season while for Albury it was their second straight victory by more than 135 points.
“It was a tough day but I don’t think the scoreboard was reflective of our efforts throughout the day,” Corcoran said.
“We battled away pretty well, we thought in the second half and I guess it was a good learning curve for our players to see how Albury plays their style of footy and how they spread from the contest.
“They are very offensive, they rely on their players winning the footy and then breaking clear so it was good for our players to be matched up on some of the stars of the competition and to learn from that.
“Scoreboard aside hopefully the experience and knowledge gained from playing them will help us out going forward.”
