MYRTLEFORD got its Ovens and Murray football season back on track with an impressive win over Wodonga on Saturday.

Heading into the match in fourth position with four wins, the Bulldogs were no match for the Saints who led all game on their way to recording the 15.9 (99) to 5.7 (37) victory.

The Saints set up the match in the first half, gaining a 29-point advantage by the main break before finishing the game strongly with six goals in the final quarter while keeping the Bulldogs scoreless in the term.

Co-coach Brad Murray continued his fantastic season with his sixth straight best on ground performance, finding plenty of the ball and adding three goals.

Kristan Height also played a big part, particularly earlier on, while Luke Chapman, Cal Crisp, Andrew Hodder, Nathaniel Dudley and Willie Thorne were all key contributors too.

But Murray said it was an even contribution that helped his side claim the four points.

“It was just a pretty even team performance,” he said.

“After a couple of close losses it was good for the boys to bounce back and play really well, we are really happy with the effort and the outcome.
