The Saints have done the Dons.
The Saints have proven the doubters wrong and have beaten the Bombers by 11 points. The Saints were dominant in the first half but struggled to translate that dominance on the scoreboard.
The Bombers surged in the third quarter and entered the final term 10 points behind and with all the momentum. The Saints were able to withstand Essendon’s pressure early in the quarter before they pulled out in front. Shaun McKernan and Dyson Heppell kicked the last two goals to bring the margin back to 11 points.
