Mudcrabs sideswipe Brothers as they settle into top four

GLADSTONE Mudcrabs have pushed themselves back into the top four of the Capricornia AFL competition with a huge win over Brothers at the weekend.

The Mudcrabs scored a 98 point thumping of the Roos, allowing just four goals from their opponents while thundering home a haul of 18 majors themselves.

Reece Sadlier booted four with Ben Dempsey getting three in a win that sees the Gladstone side take over from Rockhampton Panthers on points percentage, making the near 100 point thrashing all the more important.

BITS Saints were able to take the first spot in the competition by themselves with a dominating performance against fellow frontrunners Yeppoon.

The Swans held BITS to a goalless first term and rushed to a six goal lead, but the Saints were determined and gave up only two more goals in the remaining three quarters.

Without the forward duo of Luke's, O'Shea and Moriarty, the Saints found solid scorers in Aaron Fabian, Damien Lyon and Keith Bilston, who bagged four, three and three respectively.

The next matches are on July 6, with BITS away to Brothers and Gladstone travelling to play Panthers.
