Sea Ea­gles take a win

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT - Madolyn Peters

AUSSIE RULES: The Whit­sun­day Sea Ea­gles women’s team have de­feated the reign­ing pre­miers to win their first game of the sea­son.

Whit­sun­day cap­tain Gina Carter said ev­ery­thing the team had been work­ing on at train­ing fi­nally came to­gether in a game.

“It’s prob­a­bly one of the first games where the girls have re­ally played prop­erly as a team and re­ally got­ten be­hind each other,” she said.

“We’re fi­nally putting what we have done at train­ing into a game sce­nario.”

She said the team fought hard for the one-point win.

“And get­ting it against Mag­pies made it that little bit sweeter.

“Given they’re on top of the lad­der and in our first game they ab­so­lutely flogged us.”

But it looks like the sea­son is fi­nally turn­ing around for the team who were in­tro­duced into the women’s com­pe­ti­tion just this year.

Carter said it was a re­ally good ef­fort from all play­ers with Zali Hin­schen tak­ing out best on ground for Whit­sun­day. Whit­sun­day Sea Ea­gles de­feated mag­pies 34-33
