Sea Eagles home by 105 points
THE Whitsunday Sea Eagles turned around their loss to the in-form North Mackay Saints in round 10 by posting a 105 point victory over Moranbah on the weekend.
The Sea Eagles took to the road for what coach Darren Crossley described as the "longest trip in football" – a four-and-a-half hour bus ride to Moranbah.
Despite the travel, the Whitsunday side fielded a strong side and were never troubled by their opposition taking a stranglehold on their opposition from the opening whistle.
The Sea Eagles raced out to a four goal lead by half time and kicked a further eight in the third quarter to put the result beyond doubt.
Crossley said it was great to take such a talented squad out to Moranbah and post such a convincing win.
"We had a good contingent of young guys again," he said. "Their speed and agility around the ball is a bonus for us."
The win ensured the Sea Eagles stay in touch with the top teams in the competition as they sit in equal third position on this year’s competition ladder.
Crossley said he was pleased to put in such a dominating display away from home.
"It was open and pretty free flowing," he said.
"The stoppages and any ball-ups, we dominated that portion of the game and we dominated on the halfback line."
The Sea Eagles will enjoy a week off this weekend
