Sea Ea­gles’ 13s, 15s hold on to claim close vic­to­ries

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

Two thrillers took place at the Whit­sun­day Sportspark on Satur­day, with both the 13s and 15s post­ing nail-bit­ing wins.

First up were the Sea Ea­gles’ un­der-13s, who posted their sec­ond win of the sea­son with a 5.4.34 to 4.7.31 victory over Sa­rina.

Whit­sun­day opened up a 21point lead at the first break fol­low­ing an out­stand­ing first quar­ter.

Sa­rina re­duced the mar­gin to 14 points at half time but a con­trolled third quar­ter saw the Sea Ea­gles hold sway by 20.

Whit­sun­day looked set for victory but to their credit a fast-fin­ish­ing Sa­rina never sur­ren­dered, kick­ing 17 points to zero in the fi­nal quar­ter.

Although the Sea Ea­gles didn’t hit the score­board in the fourth term, they were good enough to hold on for a three-point win.

Cal­lum McMurdo, Max Steel and Ethan Boyle were all in­dus­tri­ous in the victory for Whit­sun­day.

The un­der-15s pro­duced their first win of the year, over­com­ing City Hawks 6.1.37 to 4.11.35.

The Sea Ea­gles were down by eight at the fi­nal change but fin­ished with a wet sail, kick­ing two goals to nil.

Lach­lan Spin­ner and Hud­son McGre­gor each kicked two ma­jors in the win.
