Our Sea Ea­gles just too good for Mag­pies

AUSSIE RULES SE­NIORS

DE­SPITE al­most all of their team run­ning out for their sec­ond game in a row the Whit­sun­day Sea Ea­gles man­aged to run the North­ern beaches Mag­pies off their feet in their 23.10.148-9.14.68 win in Mackay on Satur­day.

Player short­ages meant al­most ev­ery player run­ning out for the se­niors had also played for the re­serves but the Sea Ea­gles pushed through to score an im­por­tant win over their Mackay op­po­nents.

Satur­day’s win means the Sea Ea­gles are in fifth place on the lad­der, just be­hind North Mackay who boasts a bet­ter win per­cent­age.

The team face a tough task this week­end with an away game against the Mo­ran­bah Bull­dogs on Satur­day.

RE­SERVES

North Mackay were too good for the Sea Ea­gles on Satur­day, run­ning home to a com­fort­able 50-point win at the Mag­pies Sports Park.

A slow start hurt the Sea Ea­gles and af­ter giv­ing up a four goal lead in the fourth quar­ter they were un­able to work their way back into the con­test.

With only two games left in the sea­son the re­serves will want to build some win­ning form be­fore fi­nals but face a tough task this week­end against the Eastern Swans.
