that’s the mindset you want.” Bowie’s three-point marksmanship proved the difference, with the captain’s five long-range buckets more than the entire Geraldton team combined.
The Buccs were held to 20 points below their league-leading 111 points-a-game average and connected on only three of 22 attempts from downtown.
Geraldton star Bennie Lewis made all of his side’s longrange field goals, while prolific guns Aaron Ralph and Carter Cook missed a combined 10 attempts.
Haney praised his whole side for their efforts against the secondplaced side, and said being rewarded with a place in the top eight was “like a dream”.
“It feels awesome to officially be in the top eight. I’m baffled. These boys keep showing up, everyone is stepping up,” he said.
“It’s kind of like a dream and it keeps on going and going.
“It’s almost surreal, and I think the boys want to make memories, league-wise, club-wise, and their hard work is showing that.”
