Sea Ea­gles blitz Bak­ers Creek

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

“We just want to get peo­ple in­volved and en­joy­ing rugby.”

The Raiders play the Mud­crabs at 3pm on Satur­day in Bowen.

They train Tues­days and Thurs­days at Whit­sun­day Sportspark. AUSSIE RULES: The Un­der-17 Sea Ea­gle boys was the only game for the day at the Whit­sun­day Sportspark at the week­end.

The boys went up against Bak­ers Creek who were sig­nif­i­cantly un­der­manned.

In or­der to boost num­bers four Un­der-14s Sea Ea­gles boys set up and played for them.

Also five U17s Sea Ea­gles play­ers went over and played for the op­po­si­tion.

Great sports­man­ship was shown by the boys even be­fore the vis­i­tors kicked the first goal of the match.

The Sea Ea­gles replied with three goals of their own and Jay­den Clark fin­ished with seven goals, Lach­lan Draper with two.

The boys then started play­ing their nor­mal footy with Hon­nie Bloomer giv­ing his team mates plenty of op­tions in the ruck.

Nick Di Prima had plenty of pos­ses­sion and kicked two goals. The back line was strong once again hold­ing the vis­i­tors to less than five goals.

All play­ers did ex­tremely well to take a huge win, Sea Ea­gles 117 to Bak­ers Creek 30.
