Victory over Panthers keeps Myrtleford in the top four
The entire team savoured the win but it was a special match for Josh Muraca, who played his first senior match.
“Josh Muraca was really solid in his first senior game,” Simpson said.
“He put in a really pleasing preseason and certainly strung a lot of good games together in the reserves; he carried that through to the seniors he kicked a really good goal for us in the third quarter, which gave the boys a really good lift.
“Injury-wise we got through unscathed which is good.
“It was a physical match, which is what we want our brand of footy, and they held up their end of the physicality.
“We’re ready to go again this weekend against Yarrawonga.”
The Saints reserves went down in their match 8.6 (54) to 11.13 (79); Luke Quirk kicked two, while Kane Michelini and Corey Southers turned in best on performances.
The thirds had a big win 14.9 (93) to 4.7 (31)m Josh Jones leading the way with four majors.
