AFL Capricornia premiership trifecta for BITS Saints

THE Boyne Island Tannum Sands Saints have cemented their spot at the top of the Capricornia ladder, taking down Glenmore by 42 points in the grand final on Saturday.

The win is a trifecta for the team, in what was a grinding game for both sides.

The club overall is celebrating after three of its four teams playing the finals took home premierships for 2013, including an unexpected win by the reserves.

Andrew McMahon, from BITS Football Club, said it was a good, hard contest.

"Both teams were relentless in their attack of the ball," he said.

"Glenmore kicked a couple of goals in the second half but BITS still won by more than half."

He said rover Peter Bond was one of the best players through his sheer attack on the ball, alongside Jamie Cunninghame who was awarded best on ground.

Both Luke O'Shea and Aaron Fabian kicked three goals each during the game at Rockhampton where a sizable crowd watched on.

Mr McMahon said Glenmore were a good young side on the up, but the Saints were just too good.

"BITS continued to be the benchmark side in AFL Capricornia," he said.

Players and members returned to their homeground clubrooms to celebrate their win for the 2013 season.
