Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

AUSSIE RULES: The Whit­sun­day Sea Ea­gles re­turned to form on Satur­day in their home clash against the Bak­ers Creek Tigers at Whit­sun­day Sportspark.

Com­ing off the back of a loss against the same side last week in Mackay, the Sea Ea­gles’ de­ter­mi­na­tion de­liv­ered an over­whelm­ing vic­tory – kick­ing 16 goals in their 16.21.117 to 3.3.21 win.

The re­sult takes the Sea Ea­gles to the top of the lad­der.

Matthew Galon­ski kicked six goals while Jared Camp­bell put in a strong per­for­mance in the back line.

Broth­ers Ryan and Scott Lee were a force to be reck­oned with on the wings.

Sea Ea­gles coach Luke Som­merville said he was proud to see the side bounce back. “I think our boys were more switched on this week and ag­gres­sive with the ball, maybe we were a lit­tle com­pla­cent last week,” he said.

“We are tak­ing it one game at a time; it’s been a good start to the year, but we still have 11 games to go.”


Up against Bak­ers Creek, the girls truly turned things around lead­ing all day and just pipped in the last 10 min­utes of the day go­ing down 5.6.36 to 3.4.22.


The U17s played Bak­ers Creek in a de­mo­li­tion win­ning 24.16.160 to 0.3.3.

The U14s played Sarina De­mons win­ning 17.9.111 to 3.4.22 and the U12s lost to Pioneer Power 5.12.42 to 0.8.8.

DE­TER­MINED: Bak­ers Creek Tigers cap­tain Dale Eames and Whit­sun­day Sea Ea­gles player Scott Lee.
