Blues hold the ladder-leading Saints to a draw

ST PATS 12.18 (90) drew with OLD LAUNCESTONIANS 14.6 (90)

ST PATS and OLs played out a draw in a very good game of football at St Pats yesterday.

The home side would have rued its inaccurate kicking with 30 shots to 20 but the Blues fought hard in the contest all day.

Dayle O'Neill and James Storay kicked four goals each for the Saints with Leigh De Jong, Brad Pearton and Andrew Scolyer their best players.

Blues coach Brian Finch pulled on the boots and kicked three goals with Jarrah Burns, Sam O'Keefe and Luke Johnston their best players.

The result sees the Saints remain on top of the ladder with OLs third.

OLD SCOTCH 44.26 (290) d PERTH 0.3 (3)

The reigning premier moved back into the top five courtesy of a mammoth 287-point mauling of bottom side Perth in their game for the Harper-Williams Cup.

The Thistles showed no mercy boosting their already impressive percentage with a big win with Shaun Muller having a day out with an 18-goal haul in a best on ground performance.

The Thistles had too much class and firepower with Tom Pedley and Corry Goodluck both kicking six goals.

Despite the loss of 16 premiership points Old Scotch now sits fourth on the ladder with a massive percentage of 403.34.

FINGAL VALLEY 22.20 (152) d EVANDALE 5.6 (36)

FINGAL VALLEY handed Evandale a reality check with a 116-point victory in their game at Cressy.

The Country Blues were too strong and had all the answers with Michael Rainbow kicking five goals, Jake Price four and Tim Hall three.

Drew Bardenhagen was the best on ground for Fingal with Price, Trent Davis and Zac Noble other good players.

Tom Chugg was Evandale's only multiple goalkicker with two with Brad Scott-Power the Eagles best player.

PROSPECT 25.21 (171) d MEANDER VALLEY SUNS 12.15 (87)
