AUSSIE RULES

MACKAY’S Eastern Swans scored a hard-earned 8.5.536.3.39 win over the Whit­sun­day Sea Ea­gles re­serves in Mackay on Satur­day.

The un­der­manned Sea Ea­gles gave the lad­der-lead­ing Swans a real test at Rogers Oval and they will take out plenty of pos­i­tives from the 14-point loss.

Down 27-21 at the main break, the Sea Ea­gles bat­tled bravely in the sec­ond half only to fall just short against the Swans.

The Swans have won all 12 of their games this sea­son.

Cale Bar­nett and Trevor Ritchie kicked two goals each for the vis­i­tors and Ryan El­liot and Nicholas Roach also chipped in with a goal.

Best play­ers for the Sea Ea­gles were Robert Whit­ton, Daniel Fletcher, Cale Bar­nett, Les­ley O’Neill and Nicholas Roach.

Bald Ea­gles play­ers Luke Adams, Ken Deakes and Ben Hall all put their hand up to help make up num­bers for the game.

Af­ter­wards the club ex­pressed its thanks for their out­stand­ing com­mit­ment to the club.

The se­nior team en­joyed the bye last week­end and will be ready to go when they take on the Baker’s Creek Tigers at Etwell Park this Satur­day.

The re­serves are also in ac­tion in Mackay, where they will face the North Mackay Saints at Ze­olla Park.
