Suspended Suns in seconds helping

SUSPENDED quartet Harley Bennell, Brandon Matera, Trent McKenzie and Danny Stanley took the first step towards regaining respect at the Gold Coast with dominant performances against Southport in the NEAFL.

Bennell (pictured) had 40 touches, kicked two goals and had 10 clearances to be the best player on the ground as the Suns' reserves defeated the Nathan Bock-coached Sharks by 14 points.

Stood down from the senior side for breaking the club's no-alcohol rules, Matera kicked three goals and had 28 touches, Stanley had 38 possessions, and McKenzie kicked two goals and collected 18 disposals.

Small forward Tyrone Downie also impressed after kicking five goals for the Suns.

Their response would have been welcome news for Suns coach Rodney Eade, who had to suffer a sixth-straight defeat to the Adelaide Crows at Metricon Stadium on Saturday night.

Eade said he was proud of the way his team kept fighting despite missing a host of regulars through injury and club bans.
