Macleod gutted after nailbiting Northern Football League grand final defeat to Bundoora

GUTTED Macleod coach Garry Ramsay says he will be left with a sense of emptiness after his side’s agonising loss to Bundoora in Saturday’s Northern Football League grand final.

The Roos led by three points with two minutes left in the Division 1 decider before Gary Moorcroft kicked the matchwinning goal to earn the Bulls a 10.16 (76) to 10.13 (73) triumph.

Macleod has lost consecutive grand finals by a combined 19 points, having been beaten by Heidelberg on the big stage last season.

“There will be an emotion of disappointment,” Ramsay said.

“We were beaten last year and I think there was only going to be one result which ultimately was going to make us fulfilled.

“We had plenty of small wins along the way. Plenty of players have improved which is great. The club is going in the right direction.

“But I will leave this season feeling very empty.”

Macleod led five times during the match but never by more than three points.

Still, it appeared the Roos had done enough when Nick Lynch booted his fourth goal of the second half at the 18-minute mark of the last quarter.

More than 11 minutes passed before a scrappy kick out of congestion from Bundoora playing coach Ricky Dyson was marked by Moorcroft and he slotted the decisive goal.

“I don’t think you can pinpoint one moment in a game like that,” Ramsay said.

“It was a real arm wrestle and Bundoora were in front at the end of the day.”

Bundoora answered through Todd Hughes and Isaac Muller, before Cathal Corr and Lynch combined to put the Roos within touching distance of the premiership cup.

 

However, Moorcroft would have the final say in a pulsating grand final.

“I don’t think we got any further than a kick in front at any stage,” Ramsay said.

“I think throughout the game I thought we were going to win at different times (then) I thought it was going to be tough.”
