Saints managed to put an early win on the board after edging out Towns in a high-scoring affair on the weekend.

The round three WKFL contest was tight from the first bounce but it was ultimately the Saints who ran away with an eight-point victory.

Scott Bedford came firing out of the gates and nailed the first of his four goals of the day in the opening term for Towns, before Jack Reagan got one back for the Saints.

The scoring continued back and forth between the determined teams but it was Towns who went into the first break with momentum and a 10-point lead.

Scott McPhee and Angus Boult-Lyne strung consecutive goals together in a solid second term for the Saints, giving the side a two-point advantage at half-time. Towns blew a number of opportunities in front of goal in the third quarter, allowing Saints to steam ahead, with Phillip Sibosado, Michael Hunter and Reagan putting easy ones on the scoreboard.

Bedford slipped one through right before the final break to keep Towns within just eight points.

And although they had an impressive last quarter, it wasn’t meant to be for the young side, who ultimately went down 15.5 (95) to 13.9 (87).

They will look to get their first win this Saturday against a fired-up Bulls.

Saints will hope to keep their strong form going in a home game against the Bidyadanga Emus later that afternoon.
