Saints notch up a second win in 2018

By The McIvor Times

From page 16

The frustration continued in the early stages of the third term as the Saints kicked more behinds, the sequence of 12 straight minor scores being broken by a goal to Alex McIvor.

McIvor was providing his teammates with a focal point as he led out on every occasion.

Holding a five-goal lead at the final term the Saints looked to have done enough but Elmore had made a number of changes and they came out hard.

From the first bounce, the Bloods took the ball and drove it deep for a goal. They continued to drive the ball forward and soon they had reduced the margin to a kick and the game was in the balance.

The Saints steadied to kick a goal and then draw away from the Bloods.

When the siren blew the Saints had recorded their second win for the season and a great way to enter the club bye next week.

With players returning from injury the team is looking forward to the second round matches.

■ In A grade netball, Elmore proved too strong for Heathcote winning 44-26.
