Berrigan’s Fraser Haintz looks to take off after taking a mark in the thirds.

Reserves: Berrigan 2.1 (13) def. by Strathmerton 15.12 (102).

Berrigan’s reserves were soundly beaten by the Bulldogs to the tune of 89 points.

With a few key personnel missing, the Saints were unable to combat the more superior firepower from Strathy with the back line working overtime for most of the day.

Adam Fox was again a beacon of light with his slick ball movement for the home side Saints.

Steve Morgan was again in the thick of it and kicked a thumping goal from outside 50, which had the Saints faithful rejoicing.

Steve Lappin made a cameo appearance and showed that his marking abilities and blistering pace have not left him.

Matt Cameron again battled hard from the backline and the mercurial Joseph Gorman again made an impact and possibly finished with another dose of leather poisoning.

Ryan Flynn rounded out the best players with another workman-like game.

The Saints have done enough to finish inside the top five and will be primed for finals.

Thirds: Berrigan 3.6 (24) def. Strathmerton 2.7 (19).

A tough battle faced Berrigan and Strathmerton last Saturday in the thirds with the winner cementing their spot in the finals.

The Saints were able to get off to a great start with two quick goals, then the battle began with both teams finding it difficult to score.

The backline pressure from both sides was mentally and physically tough.

Riley Dempster, who played well under pressure, was again a standout for the Saint, and Mason Peters showed great leadership.

Tom Whelan and Fraser Haintz had a blinder in the last quarter and the crowd certainly enjoy watching these two promising footballers work so well together.

Berrigan were able to hold on to a five point win when the final siren sounded and all boys walked off the field giving 100 per cent for the game,

The Saints will now enjoy a well deserved weekend off before they begin their finals campaign.

Fourths: Berrigan no score def. by Strathmerton 16.7 (103).

The fourths played their last game for the season and again played with big hearts.

This group of boys have done the club proud with their positive attitude and respect for each other on and off the field.

James Curtin, Max Cameron, Aiden Fennell and John O’Neill played their last match in the fourths and all played a tremendous game.

On a positive note for the season, the boys had a much better result than last year and to see the group sing the song once this year was fantastic.

Having scores on the board for some of the games was a huge achievement also and the Berrigan boys should hold their heads high.
