Ca­ble click in fi­nal term

Broome Advertiser - - SPORT - Carly Laden

Ca­ble Beach have con­tin­ued to be one of the teams to beat af­ter pick­ing a fourth straight vic­tory, this time over the Looma Ea­gles.

In a fran­tic start to the match, it was a strug­gle for both teams to get on the score­board. It seemed it would be a close match be­tween Ca­ble Beach and Looma as they matched each other point for point, with Ca­ble Beach go­ing to half-time with just a two­point ad­van­tage. Spec­ta­tors were left in awe of the high stan­dard of foot­ball on dis­play with plenty of hard-hit­ting tack­les and spec­tac­u­lar marks to go around.

Things were cer­tainly get­ting in­tense as Looma con­tin­ued to be hot on Ca­ble Beach’s tail, only suf­fer­ing a six-point deficit at three-quar­ter time.

How­ever, Ca­ble Beach kicked them­selves into a new gear dur­ing the fi­nal quar­ter, boot­ing five goals to take home the 32-point win and ce­ment their sta­tus at the top of the lad­der. Ca­ble Beach coach Brett Claudius said he was happy his team had grabbed the win af­ter fac­ing a chal­leng­ing side in the Ea­gles.

“Looma are a very good team and we re­spect them a lot so we made sure we put out our best for them,” he said.

“The week off will def­i­nitely come in handy.” We’ve trained hard for eight weeks and we’ve got some sore bod­ies so we’ll def­i­nitely take ad­van­tage of the break be­fore fac­ing the derby.”

Looma Ea­gles coach Brian Pin­dan said the team were still try­ing to feel out where they were at as a col­lec­tive.

“De­spite the re­sult, it was a good out­come for the club and we will def­i­nitely learn from this loss and come back next round,” he said.

“Con­sid­er­ing we didn’t play for two weeks I think the boys did a good job tak­ing on the team to beat.”

“There are a cou­ple of things we will need to work on but I’m happy with where we’re at now.” Af­ter the league break, Ca­ble Beach will take on the Derby Tigers while the Looma Ea­gles will face off against the Broome Bulls on Satur­day, June 9.
