ST KILDA came from behind to win an ugly game of Friday night footy by three points against the Western Bulldogs at Etihad Stadium.
The Saints were brilliant in the final six minutes of the quarter where they kicked the final three goals to snatch a match which was ultra defensive, 7.7 (49) to 6.10 (46).
Saints coach Ross Lyon was delighted that his team took the points.
“We couldn’t get any (forward 50) entries in the first half because the pressure was very good and forced us into a lot of handball; (it was an) incredibly high tempo game,” he said.
“We wanted to go quick to avoid a bit of the press and we became a bit reckless and a bit chaotic and non-systematic.”
“To come off two six-day breaks and to play three games in 12 days – the mental toughness of the group is pretty good.”
