BITS Saints’ have home ground sweep over Panthers

BITS Saints came through with a clean sweep of wins following Saturday's games at home.

BITS Saints President Damon Stebbings was proud of the overall performance.

The A-grade Saints team beat the Rockhampton Panthers 163 to 61.

"We were fairly confident coming into the match.

We had seen the form of the Panthers in their previous games," Mr Stebbings said.

"They really pushed us in the second and third quarters but we came back in the last."

He said their full forward Luke O'Shea played really well, kicking 10 goals.

Vice-president of the Panthers, Sam Gudgeon believes in time, the team will see good improvement.

"Everyone worked hard.

"We probably had the ball more than they did, but we weren't as effective," Gudgeon said.

The Rockhampton Panthers have had several new players join the team, and a few juniors step up to the challenge of A-grade.

"It will take a little more time to develop these young fellas. With a few more games together I think it'll get more competitive."

He said a few new players were stand-outs for the match. "Alex Kneen is developing quite quickly," he said.

New recruit, Cal Hockley has also been settling in well.

"But we do have a lot of improvement to do."
