BROCK-BURRUM has withstood a spirited comeback from Henty to prevail by 10-points at Henty on Saturday.
The Swampies failed to score a goal in the opening half as the Saints opened up a 33-point lead at the main break.
Former AFL player Cameron Cloke made a one-off appearance for the Swampies.
Swampies coach Joel Price swung the changes at half-time, including switching Cloke from up forward and into the ruck.
Damian Cupido also played across half-back after having little impact up forward in the first-half.
The home side booted six goals to two in the second-half as the Saints held on to win 7.14 (56) to 6.10 (46).
Saints coach Kade Stevens said the victory was a lot more gritty than pretty.
"It was fairly blustery conditions which made scoring difficult," Stevens said.
"But sometimes you just have to grind out a win, take the four points and move on.
"Today was one of them."
