Saints' season of firsts
Aussie Rules: The South Burnett Saints continued their winning hot streak against the University Cougars at the weekend.
The Saints defeated the Cougars 98-60 at Lyle Vidler Oval on Saturday, June 17.
The win was the side's fifth in a row.
Saints captain Daniel Clacy said despite the Cougars being undefeated when they pulled into Kingaroy, they had little chance against his side.
"They kicked the first two goals but at every quarter break we were in front,” he said.
"In the third quarter they kicked three or four goals in row and that shook us up a little. We ended the quarter by kicking a goal, which brought us back into level playing field going into the last quarter.”
Clacy said the team's fortunes at the start of the season didn't look so promising, but the tide was turning.
"We've beaten all the un-beatables. Last week we won against the South Toowoomba Bombers and that was the first Division One game we've ever won in Toowoomba,” he said.
"Yesterday was the first time we've ever beaten University and a few weeks ago was the first time we beat Coolaroo in Division One.
"We're not an old club but we're doing all the right things to get what we want.”
Next week the club will host its Heritage Day match, in which they'll wear the old Kingaroy Bulldog jerseys.
"We're playing Toowoomba Tigers, they're not the most difficult team according to the ladder but they beat us last year,” Clacy said.
Clacy said ex-Bulldogs players from across the country were expected to return to Lyle Vidler Oval for the game.
The match is on Saturday, June 24, starting with the Saints women's match at 1.30pm, followed by the men's match at 3.20pm.
