Saints Hold Out Against Fast Finishing Hawks

In stark contrast to the warm weather last weekend, it was a cool overcast day in Moorabbin at RSEA Park. The Saints won the toss and were quick to take the ball forward with Nat Exon kicking the first goal for the Saints, marking uncontested 25 meters out from goal at the South Road end. Chiocchi was injured when tackled one armed by Ashmore and injured her knee, she would not return to the game and the club would be concerned about how much of the season the veteran might miss.  

Hawthorn were able to work the ball into the breeze with pace, and Ashmore was looking increasingly dangerous but her shot at goal into the breeze went out of bounds on the full. She found Fellows with her next kick inside 50 and she goalled from 25 meters out on a slight angle at the Linton St end. Vesely kicked the second for the Saints getting on the end of the handball under pressure and snapped the ball to the goal square, where it bounced through, and Tyanna Smith added another on the run to give the Saints a solid lead.
