Saints play sinless footy to wrap up AFL minor premiership

BURSTING out of the blocks in the first quarter of a big game has seen Sawtell-Toormina wrap up the AFL North Coast minor premiership for 2014.

Saturday's top of the ladder clash at Fitzroy Oval saw the Saints open up a 26 point margin by the first break after a withering opening burst.

It was a deficit the Swans couldn't pull back during its Call To Arms event which saw the Swans players wearing a large dash of yellow on their specially designed guernseys for cancer awareness.

The final margin of 23 points, though, shows the Saints won't have it all their own way in the upcoming finals series.

Port Macquarie has wrapped up its finals berth after keeping North Coffs scoreless.

The Magpies have hit form at the right time of the season winning five of their past six matches and won't be taking their premiership defence lightly.

Camden Haven's chase of a finals spot in its inaugural season of senior football has come to an end after its loss to Grafton.

The final margin of 58 points could've been greater if not for a poor conversion rate in front of goal from the Tigers.

Windy conditions at Laurieton were hard to master and Grafton kicked only 14 goals from its 37 scoring shots.
