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.
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.
Anthony Taylor kicked the Sea Eagles solo goal in their 7.2.44-1.1.7 loss to the Saints.
Blake Medcraft, Cooper Cremor, Callum Mcmurdo, Joshua Norris and Tristan O'Sullivan were the best-onground for the Sea Eagles.
