AUSSIE RULES

A THUMP­ING home win over Baker’s Creek on Satur­day has given the Whit­sun­day Sea Ea­gles 2013 sea­son a much-needed boost.

The im­pres­sive 19.12.126-4.10.34 win came on the back of an im­proved all-round per­for­mance and an in­cred­i­ble sec­ond half where they booted 13 goals to the Tigers four. Four goals each to Robert Whit­ton and Matty Laskey and three to Corey Adam­son and Ash­ley Wens­ley guided the Sea Ea­gles to a much-needed win, which was their first home ground win since May 18.

An­thony Ian­niello, Trevor Ritchie, David Ada, Brent Gale and Les­ley O'Neill were named the be­ston-ground by the coach­ing staff af­ter the 92-point win.

Cur­rently with a 3-6 win loss record for the sea­son the Sea Ea­gles will be con­fi­dent of se­cur­ing win num­ber four when they host the sixth-placed North­ern Beaches Mag­pies at home this Satur­day.

Af­ter a bye last week­end the Sea Ea­gles re­serves will also be keen to hit the park and prove them­selves against the vis­it­ing North Mackay Saints.

The re­serves will kick off the day’s games at 1pm against the Saints, fol­lowed by the main game be­tween the Sea Ea­gles and Mag­pies at 3pm.

GREAT LEAP: Sea Ea­gles ruck­man Trevor Ritchie flies high to win clear­ance for his team dur­ing their big win over Baker's Creek on Satur­day.
