Saints’ tough style not enough to beat Natte

Natte Bealibaʼs Lachlan Cameron wins the ruck tap against Trent Davey.

Natte Bealiba has steadied itself at the top of the MCDFNL’s ladder, surviving a predicted strong challenge from Trentham to claim a nine-point win.

For the second week in a row the Swans had less scoring shots than their opponents, but walked away with a 7.9 (51) to 5.12 (42) victory at Natte Yallock Recreation Reserve to see off yet another of the 2018 season’s predicted biggest challengers, one round after taking the mantle of league front-runners from Carisbrook.

There was similarities between Saturday’s win and Natte’s round five triumph over the Redbacks, with a fast start proving vital.

The Swans booted five first quarter goals and held a sluggish Trentham to just one to take a 22-point, 5.1 (31) to 1.3 (9) lead into the first break.
