Cameron sinks a Giant boot into Saints
A MATCH- WINNING five goals from Jeremy Cameron has halted a three- game losing streak and moved the Giants back into the eight with a gutsy 35- point win over St Kilda at Spotless Stadium yesterday.
The win reignited their finals hopes and was the first time GWS without since Shane Mumford since he joined the club last year.
“It’s a big win for our young ruck- men and our midfielders as well,” Giants coach Leon Cameron said.
“It was our best contested game for a while. I’m pleased our tackle count nearly hit 100. To get that right was a step in the right direction.”
After holding the Saints to two first- half goals the Giants withstood a third- quarter burst from the visitors who closed within 16 points and looked to be running over the top.
Four last- quarter goals to one got the GWS home in front of 9178 fans.
The only concern for the Giants was a knee injury to midfielder Dylan Shiel with tests tomorrow holding the key to any time out.
Cameron’s five goals brings his tally to 42 goals for the year and moves him into second spot in the race for the Coleman Medal behind West Coast’s Josh Kennedy.
AT THE BALL: Lion Nick Robertson gives his all in the contest but is tackled by Lance Franklin.
