Hail Wodonga Saints in foggy, soggy win

Officials were forced to turn on the lights at Beechworth on Saturday because of the fog.

WODONGA Saints coach Terry Burgess was taking none of the credit for Saturday’s win at Beechworth.

He didn’t see it.

Despite spending the entire match standing on the sidelines, Burgess said the fog made it impossible to work out what was happening on the ground.

“I have had heavy rain and hail before but never pure fog,” Burgess said.

“It made for an interesting day.

“I reckon I only saw 30 per cent of the game as it got heavier as the game went on.

“I couldn’t really tell you who played well but they must have all done all right to get the win.”

Wodonga Saints trailed by 13 points at three-quarter-time before adding 4.1 to 0.1 in the final term to clinch their second win of the season to rejoin the fight for finals action.

Burgess is told ruckman Craig Jarvis played well with support coming from midfielders Charlie Kerr and Craig Lieschke at ground level.

“I thought we got a lot of confidence out of competing against Mitta last week,” Burgess said.

“We were pretty well in that game.”

Beechworth’s Stuart Thomson played a lone hand in attack booting four goals while Matt Hunt, Brayden Carey and Brenton Surrey were solid contibuters as usual.
