NYORA have overcome a slow start against second placed Longwarry to claim an 18-point win and go two games clear on top of the Ellinbank and District ladder.
Still without coach Fia Tootoo and Ben Hallas the Saints were slow to get off the mark, with the Crows nailing the opening two goals.
The Saints snuck in their first major through some brilliant work by Dylan Heylen, but the Crows were quick to respond.
In final stages of the opening quarter the Saints were struck with a cruel blow, losing leading goal kicker Ben Schultz to a gruesome finger injury.
Trailing by 13-points at quarter time the Saints leaders agreed it was a time for action rather than words.
Shaun Beecroft and Ryan Spooner got the job done at the coal face, gathering plenty of hard ball and flicking out to the running Dylan Heylen.
Aiden Cumberland, Ilan Osman and Jesse Heylen all got amongst the goals in the second term as the Saints drew equal 4.6.30 apiece at half time.
From there the Saints found their mojo and began to pull away.
Jesse Heylen was starting to gather plenty of possessions along with Sam Dixon who was vital in the third quarter revival.
Cumberland slotted his second and Kallon Rigby followed soon after with a brilliant goal.
However, the Saints did struggle to convert all their opportunities in front of goal, kicking a worrying 3.8 in the term and leaving the door ajar for Longwarry.
Nyora had clawed back to claim a 26-point lead at three quarter time and the home crowd was willing on their beloved Saints.
Try as they might the Crows just couldn’t maintain possession in the final quarter with Beecroft and Spooner still hard at it in the midfield as the Saints ran away to yet another win.
The Saints will now travel to Nilma Darnum this week to take on the struggling Bombers outfit.
