Saints’ resurrection

WHAT A WIN: Myrtleford players bust out the team song after a thrilling victory over Lavington on Saturday.

IN Anzac round, Myrtleford not only showed fighting spirit to bounce back from a 215 point thumping to Albury but showed plenty of fight throughout their round five Ovens and Murray clash with Lavington.

In what was one of the biggest form turnarounds in Ovens and Murray history, the Saints defeated last year’s runner up and the team many label as the next best after the Tigers.

In a thrilling encounter, Lavington missed a late shot on goal that would have drawn the game, and the Saints held on for a memorable win 17.10 (112) to 16.11 (107).

Myrtleford’s second win of the season, it was also the club’s second straight win over the Panthers at McNamara Reserve.

Co-coach Brad Murray was at his inspirational best yet again and Christian Burgess and Mitch Dalbosco continued their outstanding starts to the season.

Cal Crisp and Lachy Dale both kicked three goals and played their best games for the year while Frazer Dale’s AFL and SANFL experience shone through – playing all over the ground – in his first senior match for the Saints.
