Geelong FNLK Rock | St Mary’s has overcome a slow start to record an impressive 43-point win over reigning premier Leopold at Anthony Costa Oval.

After conceding the first two goals of the contest, the Saints held the Polders to just five more goals from the midpoint of the opening term before pulling away for a 14.10 (94) to 7.9 (51) victory, remaining unbeaten after two rounds.

“I thought we worked our way into the game pretty well,” co-coach Glenn Keast told

“We probably took a bit to settle, but once we did settle, I thought our gameplay and the way we moved the ball, we stuck to that through the course of the day, and it served us pretty well.

“It took probably 15 minutes to settle, but after that, I thought we were pretty good.”

A five-goal-to-one final term capped a display that proved to be a subtle reminder to the rest of the competition that St Mary’s will be there or thereabouts come September.
