Lions Rue missed opportunity

The Torrens Valley Lions took it up to the Roos at Mt Torrens Oval on Saturday.  They may Rue the lapse in concentration from their scoreboard attendant.  Late in the game the scoreboard was showing the home side as 3 points ahead when the scores were actually level.  Appears a late rushed behind by a Lions player actually put the Roos ahead when the siren sounded not long after the Roos ran out victors by the merest of margins.
