St Kilda continued their undefeated start to the Victorian Blind Football League season after resuming for the first time in four months on Saturday.
Kicking off the day against Hawthorn, the Saints controlled the game from the outset, eventually coming away as 55-point winners.
They kept the momentum running as they headed into their next game against Essendon, who had tested captain Lawrence Raja’s team earlier in the season.

We caught up with 𝗟𝗮𝘄𝗿𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲 𝗥𝗮𝗷𝗮 (@stkildafc) and 𝗕𝗿𝗶𝗱𝗴𝗲𝘁 𝗝𝗼𝗹𝗹𝗲𝘆 (@essendonfc) to discuss all things VBFL.
Keeping the Bombers to just four goals for the game, St Kilda’s defence held up superbly as they booted 11 majors to bring home a 52-point victory.
The Saints then rounded out a perfect day, knocking off the Western Bulldogs by 56-points to make it five from five for the year.
They now sit atop the VBFL ladder with four games remaining in the season before the finals begins on Saturday the 27th of November, and the Grand Final to follow on Saturday the 4th of December.
