Sea Ea­gles keen to play at home

AUSSIE RULES SE­NIORS

AF­TER five games on the road the Whit­sun­day Sea Ea­gles fi­nally re­turn home this week­end with their A grade team in ac­tion on Satur­day.

The ju­niors are off for the hol­i­days and the re­serve team has a bye so the club is ask­ing all its sup­port­ers to come check out the A graders take on the Baker’s Creek Tigers at 3pm at the Whit­sun­day Sports Park.

The A grade and re­serves teams both suf­fered big losses to the North Mackay Saints but club rep­re­sen­ta­tive Barb Adam­son said there is still plenty of pos­i­tive signs at the club.

“Work com­mit­ments out of town have taken a toll but the club re­mains pos­i­tive and are com­mit­ted to play out the sea­son in good spir­its,” she said.

“Last Satur­day we had two hard fought matches against the Saints with 12 play­ers stand­ing up for two matches on the day. They are the club heroes and many of them came away with sore bod­ies af­ter four hours of footy.”

Corey Adam­son, Dan Fletcher, Jack Berry, Robert Whit­ton, Leigh Maskell, Trevor Ritchie, Mickey T, Greg Tay­lor, Ash Liegh­beck, Tori Pen­drey, Brock Hol­land and Drew Gold­son all backed up for two games to help their club out.

All sup­port­ers are en­cour­aged to get down to the ground to sup­port the Sea Ea­gles this Satur­day as they look to get their sea­son back on track with a win over the Tigers.

JU­NIORS

The un­der-18s bat­tled hard with the Saints on Satur­day but fell short in their 14.6.904.3.27 loss.

An im­proved sec­ond half ef­fort from the sea Ea­gles kept the Saints to only five goals in the sec­ond half but they were un­able to match it with their Mackay ri­vals on the score­board.

In the un­der-15s the Sea Ea­gles were edged out 6.6.423.3.21 in a low-scor­ing game against the saints.

Rhys Fuhrmann was a stand­out for his side, kick­ing two goals and be­ing named one of the best-on-ground.

Blake Med­craft, Cooper Cre­mor, Cal­lum Mcmurdo, Joshua Nor­ris and Tris­tan O'Sul­li­van were the best-on­ground for the Sea Ea­gles.
