The Maitland Saints season is firmly on track with a solid 30-point win against Wyong Lakes Magpies on Saturday.
Pat McMahon led the way up front with four goals, with the Damico brothers Aiden and Luke kicking three and two majors respectively in the 14.8-92 to 9.8-62 victory.
The Saints youngsters led the way with Nick McMahon, Pat’s younger brother, and ruckman Hayden Taylor having their best games of the season.
Justin Broadley, the Damico brothers and Colin Carroll were also named in the Saints best.
The win lifts the Saints into the top five.
In other First Division games, Terrigal Avoca thrashed Warners Bay by 70 points, Newcastle City dismantled Lake Macquarie by 110 points, Gosford continued their successful return to footy with a 154 point thumping of Cardiff and league leaders Singleton piled on goals in a 212 point over a hapless Killarney Vale.
Saints reserves coach Hugh Matheson’s tireless efforts of trying to piece together a team was rewarded with a 10.16-76 to 5.11-41 win.
Shaun Pascoe-Graham was the star up forward with four goals and veteran Peter Taylor chimed in with two.
In the BDAFL Women’s the Saints were only narrow seven-point losers despite again struggling for numbers.
