The South Burnett Saints’ men’s team has clocked up back-to-back wins in the Darling Downs AFL competition.
After downing Toowoomba Tigers on July 1, the Saints hit the road to Warwick last Saturday where they took on the Redbacks.
This time they were ahead 13.8-86 to 6.8-44 when the full-time hooter sounded.
Saints peppered the sticks with Nathan Trace (6) and Fletcher Brown (5) having a field say.
Other goals were kicked by Blake Jacobson and Dimas Bakini.
This Saturday, the Saints will be hosting another big home game at Lyle Vidler Oval.
It’s the annual Heritage Day celebration where former players – and the former Kingaroy Bulldogs – will be the focus of attention.
Games start at 9:30am with an U12s Mixed game between Goondiwindi Hawks and Toowoomba Tigers.
Then at 11:00am, the Saints U14s Mixed team will take on the Tigers.
The Saints’ men’s and women’s teams will be facing the Goondiwindi Hawks in the afternoon.
The women’s game will start at 12:45pm and the men’s at 2:30pm.
After the four games, the fun will kick on with a live band from 4:30pm, raffles and Heritage Day jersey auctions.
