Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

AUSSIE RULES: The Whit­sun­day Sea Ea­gles have suf­fered their first loss of the sea­son in a tough match in Mackay on Satur­day.

The Sea Ea­gles trav­elled down to Bak­ers Creek hop­ing to keep their un­de­feated start to the sea­son in­tact and, de­spite the scores be­ing level at half-time, Bak­ers Creek ran away to win 12.9.81 to 7.5.47.

Mitch Bell and Daniel Pul­lan played solid games while Josh Nor­ris and Ja­cob Healey gave some good runs. The Sea Ea­gles will be look­ing for re­venge on Bak­ers Creeks at home this week in a catch-up round.


The women’s team headed to Mackay and were short on num­bers as they man­aged to field a team of 18 with 13.

Bak­ers Creek won 10.13.73 to 0.1.1 to mark a dom­i­nant win.

A mas­sive per­for­mance from Mad­die Richard has seen her in­cluded into the rep­re­sen­ta­tive side se­lec­tion in a big achieve­ment.

Penny Semm­ler, Ali Glis­son and Chloe Madex were strong on the park, with the best on ground closely fought be­tween Hay­ley Galea and Mad­die Richard.

Richard was strong in de­fence, tak­ing over a dozen marks and nu­mer­ous spoils, and Galea was find­ing space all day and never stop­ping with her runs, link­ing up with Richard in a for­mi­da­ble com­bi­na­tion.


The U17s trav­elled to Mackay to take on Bak­ers Creek. They started slow as Bak­ers got the jump on them and held them to two goals for the first quar­ter.

But the Sea Ea­gles showed their class as they con­tin­ued their un­de­feated run this sea­son, win­ning 13.19.97 to 5.3.33.

The Sea Ea­gles kicked into gear af­ter the first break, with Jay­den Clark kick­ing five for the game and Ry­der Har­vey kick­ing a cou­ple in his first game back. Tyne Chick played an out­stand­ing game in the back line with Ben Stro­bel. Un­der-14s

The U14s played the Sa­rina Demons and it didn’t take the Sea Ea­gles long to dom­i­nate the game, which showed on the score­board by not al­low­ing the demons to score in the first half. The fi­nal score saw the Sea Ea­gles run out win­ners 8.19.67 to 2.2.14.


An un­der­manned U12s out­fit was out­classed by a slick Pioneer Power out­fit as they went down 15.12.102 to 0.0.0. Adam Sin­gle­ton, Ja­cob Dewis and Lu­cas Allen-Fancke kept the mid­field go­ing and the Costello girls were bril­liant.
