St Kilda has broken its winless run in a thriller at Metricon Stadium.
It’s the Saints’ first win since Round 1.
Gold Coast led by 39 points at the 24-minute mark of the third term before the Saints mounted a gutsy fightback.
The Suns did not score in the final term, continuing a woeful stretch of fading late in games.
Gold Coast has scored a total of two points from its last four final quarters. #AFLSunsSaints
