Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Sea Eagles Make Sponsors Proud

Whitsunday Sea Eagles hosted their annual Sponsor and Volunteer Appreciation on Saturday playing Bakers Creek and Mackay Magpies in their last round at home for the Season.

Sea Eagles Senior Men gave the crowd plenty to cheer about kicking 21 goals against Bakers Creek running out comfortable winners 153 – 46.

Daniel Berry kicked 9 and Hudson McGregor 4 as they got on the end of dominant work from the midfield.

Sea Eagles midfielder Billy Galpin took out best on ground for the fourth week running.

Sea Eagles Senior Women lost 0 – 51 to Bakers Creek Tigers but were able to keep Tigers to one goal until half time when the score crept away.

Sea Eagles Under 17s came up against a Bakers Creek team who turned in a performance not equivalent to their bottom ladder position.

It was a tight and scrappy affair with the lead never getting out to more than 3 goals.

The final siren for the second week running showed Sea Eagles victorious by a single point 55 – 54.

Sea Eagles Under 14s had a full team against Bakers Creek and came together to play sensational footy resulting in a 9-goal opening quarter and 72 – 12 (adj) win.

Sea Eagles Under 12s were excited to take on Mackay Magpies coming out firing to win 50 – 15.

This Saturday 29th July sees Sea Eagles hit the road again travelling down to North Mackay Magpies with games from 10:40am.
