BFNL: Strathfieldsaye Storm star duo sidelined

TIGHT HAMMY: Lachlan Sharp's hot run of 46 goals in four weeks looks set to be halted becuse of injury.

TIGHT HAMMY: Lachlan Sharp's hot run of 46 goals in four weeks looks set to be halted becuse of injury.

Injuries could be the only thing that stops the Strathfieldsaye Storm.

The BFNL reigning premier won its seventh-straight game when it handed South Bendigo an 87-point hiding on Saturday.

However, the win was tarnished by injuries to arguably the club's two most influential players - Lachlan Sharp and Kallen Geary.

Shark kicked 10 goals before leaving the ground late in the game because of a hamstring twinge. Geary finished the game on the bench because of a shoulder injury.

Sharp and Geary have had hamstring and shoulder trouble respectively in the past and Storm coach Troy Coates said the club would take a cautious approach with the star duo.

"Geary will probably miss a couple and Sharpy would have to be in doubt for at least next week,'' Coates said.

"Sharpy's injury is not bad, but we won't be taking any risks with him."

The Storm play the battling Kangaroo Flat next week, before a top-of-the-table clash with Eaglehawk the following week.

The Storm's victory was part of the most lopsided round in the BFNL for 10 years.

Storm's 87-point win, Eaglehawk's 167-point thumping of Castlemaine, Kyneton's 128-point thrashing of Castlemaine, Sandhurst's 107-point drubbing of Maryborough and Gisborne's upset 29-point win over Golden Square added up to the most one-sided round since round six, 2008.
