Saints women's first win backed by men's victory

THE South Burnett Saints' women scored their first win of the season in good fashion with a 45 point win against the Locker Valley Demons.

Women's coach Adam Bowater said the Saints had to work hard for the win after the Demons took charge of the first quarter.

"They started a bit slowly, we were down three goals at quarter time," Bowater said.

Bowater said the Saints took charge from the second half and passed the Demons.

"They were able to dictate play," he said.

From there the Saints ran away with the game to finish 18.16.124-12.7.79.

But Bowater said the Saints needed to start strongly against Coolaroo in Warwick, despite them not having a won a game so far this season.

"So far at they haven't won a game (but) at the same time I will remind the girls not to go so lightly at the start," he said.

The Saints' men scored a 25.20.170-5.8.38 win against the struggling Demons who are at the bottom of the Allied Pickfords Cup ladder with no wins.

Saints' coach Paul Pressnell said his team dominated from the start and had the game well under control by half-time.

"By half-time were 16 or 17 goals in front," Pressnell said.

"In the first half we played great as a team."

Pressnell said the Saints needed to continue their momentum on the park when they front up against Coolaroo at the weekend.

"It's going to be a really good challenge, they (Coolaroo) won the first division last year," he said.

"If we play to our standard there's no reason we can't win."

The Saints men will play Coolaroo at 2pm at Warwick's WCU Oval while the women will take to the park at 4.15pm.
