Saints destroy hapless Brothers
AUSSIE RULES: BITS Saints sent a stern message to the AFL Capricornia after a massive 33.15 (213) to 1.3 (9) win against Rockhampton Brothers at Kele Park.
It was such a resounding victory because the Saints were without key personnel Connor Russell, captain Steve Pugh, Jamie Cunninghame, Jacob Mills, Miles Clarke, Brendan Clarke, Sam Pierpoint, Trent Millar, Gradey Gill and Brock Rothe.
Swingman Mark Jensen made most of his stint in the forward line with seven goals while Kane Haua, here for a couple weeks, returned to his original club to bag six.
BITS started from the outset to kick 8.4 to 1.0 in the first quarter and the Saints piled on six, 10 and nine in the final three terms while Brothers added just three points.
"(I) Didn't expect to win by that much at all," Saints player-coach Jake Mostert said.
"The pleasing thing thing I saw was that we didn't go away from a game structure even though we were doing so well."
Others to impact the scoreboard were Callum Dominguez, Ky Hull and Milton Miskin combined with 13 goals while Tyson McMahon and Mostert were other multiple goal-scorers with two each.
"Our standouts were Danny Conway, Daniel Clay, Kye Hull and Sam I'Anson," Mostert said.
Mostert said there are still areas to work on for the big tests against the undefeated Swans, Rockhampton Panthers and Glenmore in the next three games.
"We want to work on some stuff around the stoppages and keep working on our forward line entry delivery," he said.
