Former Sea Eagles doing well
FORMER Whitsunday Sea Eagles Bo Hall and Brodie Tebbut played in the 2012 Premiership Team for the Morningside Panthers in Brisbane in late August.
More than 500 people turned out in picture perfect conditions to cheer on Morningside against the Mt. Gravatt Vultures and the first quarter saw both teams play good, hard football.
The scoreboard wasn't seeing much action early before Morningside grabbed the lead and went in to the half-time break with their tails up thanks to a 56-26 lead.
The Vultures delivered their best quarter of football in the third, kicking five goals and managing to keep Morningside scoreless to head into the last quarter with an 11-point lead.
A frantic final quarter saw the lead change several times but Morningside eventually prevailed 72-68 to be crowned 2012 premiers for the SEQAFL (South East Queensland Australian Football League) under-18 Division 1 Shield competition.
The win meant it was the first time in SEQAFL history that that Morningside had been crowned back-to-back premiers in the under-18s.
