TYSON Payne was a standout performer for Glenmore Bulls A-grade when they beat Rockhampton Panthers 96-88 at Stenlake Park.

Club president Wayne Redsell was still on cloud nine about the performance after a fantastic day for the club on Saturday, when Glenmore Bulls managed to win all but one of their home field clashes.

"Tyson Payne was head and shoulders above the rest and his speed and attack really set us up," Redsell said.

"We kept the forward line quite open and delivered the ball well."

Redsell said the A-grade men's contest between the Bulls and their long time rivals Panthers had a nail-biting finish after the Panthers clawed their way back in the final quarter.

"The boys started fantastic and a real highlight was their run and attack," Redsell said.

"We lost momentum in the last quarter but luckily we were able to hold on.

"Panthers showed a lot of courage in the last quarter to fight back."

The depth of the Glenmore side was reflected in Saturday's win as many key players were out on suspension following an altercation in a recent clash with Yeppoon.

Redsell said it was a strong performance overall but he singled out youngster Dylan Chadwick (four goals) and Brad Maxwell (goal) for special mention, along with the experienced Payne.

"Dylan and Brad really provided a spark in the forward line," Redsell said.

In further games around the region, BITS Saints maintained their dominance and ladder leading position when they beat fellow front runners Yeppoon 102-54 in a tough top of the table clash at Boyne Island, while Gladstone ran over the top of Brothers 126-28 at Clinton Park.

The Capricornia Aussie Rules Competition has a bye round this weekend.
