AFL: There is al­ways a healthy ri­valry when the Whit­sun­day Sea Ea­gles take on the North Mackay Saints.

And Satur­day’s clash was no dif­fer­ent in a tight and fierce con­test the Sea Ea­gles took the spoils with a 10.14.74 to 4.7.35 win.

How­ever, the lead shifted a num­ber of cru­cial times through­out the game.

North Mackay led at quar­ter-time by two goals but Whit­sun­day came out swing­ing at half-time and flew away with the game.

Sea Ea­gles coach Luke Som­merville said it was a tough game.

“That was the sec­ond time we have beaten (North Mackay) this year and while both games were a chal­lenge, we got a win,” he said. “We have been play­ing some pretty good footy and around half­way through our team still had a bit to go.”

The stand­out play­ers in were Jared Camp­bell and Ja­cob Healey.

The Sea Ea­gles now sit alone on the top of the lad­der.

They face No.2 side the Mackay City Hawks this week­end in Mackay.


The Whit­sun­day Ladies went down 7.6.48 to 1.2.8, while the un­der-17s suf­fered their first loss 9.11.65 to 8.7.55. The U14s lost 9.9.63 to 3.2.20 and the U12s soared to a 2.13.25 to 0.5.5 win.
