Saints star in seven-goal last quarter

The presence of big men Dan Russell and Damien King at the bounce and around the ground gave the crumbers plenty of opportunity during the match.

Tom Pain continues to play well, using his pace and ferocious attack on the ball to continue to gather possessions.

Unlike the third term where the efforts of the team were not rewarded on the scoreboard, the Saints piled on 7.4 to run away comfortable victors and register their third win for the season.

The way in which the team ran out the game must give them confidence in their match at home against Huntly this week.

Luke Bell and Tom May gave the defence some height and strength and with Dylan Hardy, Marc Millard and Tom Bourke now dominating the Mounts team had few answers.

Dylan and Marc dashed out of defence frequently and set up many forward moves with their play.

The sheer volume of possession in the last term saw the forward line reap the benefits and the last term deluge was a fitting reward for persistence.

Saturday sees the club hold its “Purple Day” in honour of former club netballer Georgia Edsall-French who died in a car crash in Queensland three years ago.

The club hopes as many Heathcote people can come down to Barrack Reserve in a big show of support.
