Saints win fiery match By GREY MORRIS Saints skipper Peter MacFarlane and Waratahs playing coach Heath Culpitt have a friendly chat during last nights NTFL match at TIO Stadium Picture: MICHAEL FRANCHI ST MARYS grabbed outright second on the NTFL ladder when they outplayed Waratahs in fiery clash at TIO Stadium last night. Saints won their fifth game in a row by beating Tahs 14.11 (95) to 10.10 (70). A first quarter all-in brawl involving players from both sides set the scene in stifling heat at league headquarters. Several incidents from the melee will come under close scrutiny when the match review committee views video footage of the game. A clash between Waratahs playing coach Heath Culpitt and St Marys ruckman Ryan Smith will be at the head of the queue. But while honours finished even after players from both sides flew the flag for their clubs, St Marys won the main contest on the scoreboard. Waratahs kicked the first goal of the match when Waylen Manson snapped a goal from a metre out but Saints led at the first change. It was a lead they never relinquished, despite Tahs threatening briefly at the end of the third quarter. The 25-point win was also a fitting reward for Saints skip per Peter MacFarlane on his 100th appearance for the club. Its always good to win a milestone game, especially against a tough, hard-at-it side like Waratahs, Macfarlane said. Keeping them to 10 goals was a bonus and a huge credit to our backline, who are going from strength to strength. St Marys were served well by the fast rising Ben Rioli out of a back pocket and evergreen forward Darryl White, who continues to amaze at age 38. Waratahs had loyal servants in Simon Seddon and Mitch Sandery. Districts Andrew Browning flies for the mark in the win over Palmerston yesterday Picture: MICHAEL FRANCHI Districts deliver more Pies despair SOUTHERN Districts reminded the rest of the NTFL competition they will be around at finals time with a comprehensive 77-point disposal of a disappointing Palmerston at TIO Stadium yesterday. Palmerston led at quartertime but then faded badly as the Districts machine swung into action. The Crocodiles kicked 18 goals to six in the last half, including 7.7 to 0.2 in the allimportant third quarter, to decimate the Magpies. James Lawton booted six goals, two each in the first, second and third terms to be a constant menace to the Palmerston defence. Antel Reti was elusive across half forward with four goals and Marcus McMillan took some strong marks in the third and last quarters to finish with four. But Districts won the game with their better disposal and ability to find space on the big Marrara ground. Reti found himself without an opponent on several occasions and Henry Labastida finished with leather poisoning after a 30 possession game. More important to the Districts coaching staff was the poise and close checking of their defenders, who only allowed the Magpies six goals after the first quarter. Keegan Dingo was the second man in on dangerous Magpie spearhead Darren Ewing and did the job with a minimum of fuss. Jack OShaughnessy wore Ewing like a glove and put some more ink on a resume that continues to paint him as a close checking and hard nut defender. Palmerston was dreadful after a first quarter that promised a lot but delivered very little. Ewing and youngster Sam Autio were the only goalkicking options despite the occasional cameo from Sheldon Nelly. The big problem for the Magpies is a lack of skill and a drop-off in intensity when under pressure. Next weeks clash with Wanderers is now a must-win if they want any chance of finals football.
