ELLENBROOK Eels se­cured wins across all grades over the week­end to mark the start of the sec­ond half of the sea­son.

Colts have started to hit form, man­ag­ing a one-point win against Brent­wood Boor­a­goon.

The third grade con­tro­ver­sially won with a head count show­ing the op­po­si­tion had too many play­ers on the field and had their score wiped in the last quar­ter.

The el­der gentle­men at mas­ters came up against the North­ern War­riors that proved to be all one-sided again and with con­stant pres­sure and quick ball move­ment, the Eels were too good for them. Re­serve grade con­tin­ued their win­ning form and kept a hold on the top of the lad­der by thrash­ing a lack­lus­tre St Nor­bert’s 17.18 120 to 0.1.01, which saw the ball only en­ter St Nor­bert’s for­ward one time dur­ing the whole game.

The league squad have been train­ing hard es­pe­cially over the past few weeks in prepa­ra­tion for the bat­tle against the much fan­cied top of the lad­der St Nor­bert’s.

Eels showed depth, courage and con­stantly worked to­gether for all four quarters to take away a huge win that sets up the sec­ond half of the sea­son in a great po­si­tion and only two points from the top of the lad­der. The fi­nal scores were 22.8.140 to 12.4 76.

The 64-point win holds the Eels in a strong po­si­tion go­ing into next week’s game against fifth place Mos­man Park.

Bradley Lurkin works the ball around the bound­ary line un­der close eye of the um­pire.
