Hat-trick of wins for young Eagles
AUSSIE RULES: Whitsunday’s junior Sea Eagles produced a trifecta of wins at the weekend, with all three grades getting the chocolates.
The under-17s, who played 12 a side due to limited numbers, recorded their third win of the season in defeating Eastern Swans 97-50 on Saturday at the Whitsunday Sportspark.
NQ representative Maty Jenkins kicked four goals while Nathan Simm, Hudson McGregor, Mick Maltby and Rhys Fuhrmann were all lively in the impressive win.
The under-15s were ruthless in their 41-point win over the Swans, leading from start to finish to move up to third on the ladder.
The under-13s kicked off the day with a pulverising 75point victory. Jayden Clark booted five while Ethan Boyle, Callum McMurdo, Lachlan Draper and Zac Schultz led the charge with consistent performances.
