South Burnett Saints notched up their second win for the season in the Darling Downs AFL competition at the weekend, downing South Toowoomba Bombers before a home crowd in Kingaroy.
It was the club’s first “Ladies Day” so there was a LOT of pink being worn by spectators.
The Bombers began strongly and were ahead by four goals at the first change.
But the home team had a massive second quarter, kicking seven goals to the visitors’ one to take the lead 8.3-51 to 6.6-42.
The Saints then led for the rest of game, finishing ahead 13.9-87 to 9.15-69.
Queensland rep player Shaun Pukallus led the charge, kicking four goals.
Other South Burnett goals were kicked by Benjamin Smith (3), Jarryd Hill (2), Jack Hourn, Kyle Snow, Jordan Brooker and Joshua Soley.
The Saints’ next game will be against the Warwick Redbacks, at Warwick, on Saturday.

It may have been Ladies Day, but unfortunately that didn’t translate into on-field success for the Saints Women’s team.
The South Toowoomba Bombers proved too strong, 5.7-37 to 0.6-6, in a low-scoring game.
The team’s next game will be against Toowoomba, at Rockville Oval in Toowoomba, on Saturday.
