Ruth­less Whit­sun­day crushes Hawks

Whitsunday Times - - JUNIOR SPORT -

WHIT­SUN­DAY’S un­der-15s have con­tin­ued its strong sea­son, touch­ing up Mackay City Hawks on Satur­day morn­ing.

The Sea Ea­gles oblit­er­ated Mackay City to win 20.10.130 to 3.3.21 at the Whit­sun­day Sportspark – the team’s seventh vic­tory of the sea­son.

The home side rock­eted to a 46-point lead at the first break be­fore ex­tend­ing their lead to a stag­ger­ing 97 at half­time.

A fur­ther four goals would make Hawks’ day go from bad to worse, how­ever they would break their duck to record a rare ma­jor in the third quar­ter.

Sur­pris­ingly, Mackay City kicked two goals to Whit­sun­day’s one in the fi­nal term, how­ever the hosts would still record a crush­ing 91-point vic­tory.

Rhys Furhmann starred with six goals while Hud­son McGre­gor booted four ma­jors.

Matthew Jenk­ins, Ja­cob Healey, Ri­ley Mer­ce­ica and Max Cor­nish ex­celled around the grounds in what was a clin­i­cal dis­play.

The ju­nior Sea Ea­gles are sec­ond on the lad­der, but re­main com­fort­ably clear of both the Swans and Hawks.

Their real pre­mier­ship threat is the dom­i­nant Saints, who boast a stag­ger­ing per­cent­age of 789.81.

This week­end Whit­sun­day will travel to Etwell Park to play the Swans.
