15.8.98 def 2.10.22 Goals: E. Gun­ders 4, H. Ver­wo­erdt 2, N. Al­ford 2, C. Bray, T. Bradley, B. Devlin, T. Neil, G. Den­ham, T. Ritchie & J. Der­byshire 12-points in the sec­ond term to main­tain a 16-point ad­van­tage.

Know­ing they had to kick a win­ning score in the third, the Sea Ea­gles threw ev­ery­thing at the Tigers, boot­ing 6.2 in a dom­i­nant quar­ter to all but seal the re­sult.

De­spite com­ing home with the wind, the Tigers yielded with a whim­per, as Whit­sun­day outscored the vis­i­tors four goals to nil in the fi­nal term.

Sea Ea­gles’ stand-in coach Luke Som­merville said the team de­served the win fol­low­ing a dif­fi­cult start to the Al­lied Pick­fords Cup.

“It’s great to get a win on the board but even more pleas­ing was the way we went about it,” he said.

“It was a re­ally solid team per­for­mance with ev­ery player con­tribut­ing.

“The work we’ve been do­ing at train­ing is start­ing to pay off and it now sets up a mas­sive clash with the reign­ing premiers Mo­ran­bah this week­end.”
