WHITSUNDAY Sea Eagles hosted Bakers Creek and Moranbah at home, on Saturday, for a fun, family day event, which also saw the Sea Eagles on the winners list.
Sea Eagles Senior Men’s side were back on top, overcoming Bakers Creek at home 80 – 33.

Sea Eagles Senior Women saw a slow start, trailing Bakers Creek by a couple of goals from the get go and remaining slightly behind for the game, going down 38 – 53.
After a close loss last week, Sea Eagles Under 17s were keen to put on a show at home and did just that, winning 79 – 19 (adj) against Bakers Creek.
A strong start by the Sea Eagles put early pressure on the Tigers and, by the end of the first half, Sea Eagles were completely in control with a good even spread of contributors.
A strong start was important to Sea Eagles Under 14s, after a tough loss last week, and that came to fruition with a convincing 93 – 33 (adj) win over Bakers Creek.
It was great to see players giving different roles a go without intensity dropping off.
Sea Eagles Under 12s faced a full strength Moranbah side for what was a tense and evenly matched encounter, eventually running out winners in a close final term 35 – 28.
