Mag­pies no match for our im­prov­ing Sea Ea­gles

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -


A COM­BINED 11 goals from key play­ers Matty Laskey and Robert Whit­ton saw the Sea Ea­gles cruise past the North­ern Beaches Mag­pies at the Whit­sun­day Sports Park on Satur­day.

Six goals to Whit­ton and five to Laskey high­lighted a morale boost­ing win for the home side with the fi­nal score read­ing 21.21.147-2.6.18.

A four goal to one first quar­ter set the pace for the home side who had pushed their lead out to 72-8 by the end of the first half.

Things got worse for the Mag­pies af­ter the break as the Sea Ea­gles found an­other level and be­gan scor­ing with rel­a­tive ease.

Best-on-ground for the Sea Ea­gles in the big win were Laskey, Whit­ton, Joseph Caridi, Rhys Adam­son and Cody Wright.

With four wins and six losses so far in 2013, the Sea Ea­gles will be des­per­ate to move closer to a 50 per cent win record when they take on the Mo­ran­bah Bull­dogs away this week­end.


A bye for the North Mackay Saints se­nior team al­lowed them to field a very strong re­serves team that saw off the Whit­sun­day Sea Ea­gles 17.9.1112.7.19.

The Sea Ea­gles had lit­tle an­swers for the stacked Saints side and Daniel Kee­ley and Ryan Dempsey were the only goal kick­ers for the home side on the day.

They were joined in the best-on-ground list by Corey Adam­son, Josh Grif­fiths and Trevor Ritchie.

The re­serves will en­joy the bye this Satur­day while the se­nior team trav­els to Mo­ran­bah to take on the ever-im­prov­ing Bull­dogs.

NOWHERE TO GO: Sea Ea­gles play­ers Jade Der­byshire and Joseph Caridi wrap an op­po­nent dur­ing their big win over the North­ern Beaches Mag­pies on Satur­day af­ter­noon.
