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.”
