Sea Eagles continue domination

STONY Creek travelled to Inverloch-Kongwak in what was sure to be a great match after both teams reaped big wins in the weekend before the Round 13 showdown.
Meeting on a slippery pitch after heavy rain both teams knew it was going to be a rough game from the get go, with a wind favouring IK in the first and third terms.
The home team Sea Eagles got off to a cracking start with the wind in its favour in the first term.
Toby Mahoney kicked the first of his two goals to get IK off the mark early in the quarter while Stony was only allowed one major and one minor in the first 20 minutes. IK led 32 to 7.
On-ballers Daniel Reid and Corey Casey were absent from the Sea Eagles and it showed, as the side struggled to work against the wind in the second term.
The home team slacked off however in the second quarter only managing to put a major and four points on the board as the Lions caught up and were in fact level on 42 at half time.
IK knuckled down in the third term and worked with the favourable wind to regain its lead, only letting SC put two points on the board in the 20 minutes.
Ton McQualter played a strong match and helped get the ball downfield while Andy Soumilas did not let a second slip by without playing 100 per cent.
Putting five majors on the board IK pulled ahead 73 to 44 going into the fourth term and did not let the margin affect stamina and energy in the home stretch.
IK worked hard as a team in getting the ball into the forward line, with its efforts paying off at full time, having only let Stony put another two on the board.
The final score saw IK victorious on 85 to 58.
IK will play Korumburra-Bena at KB this weekend with uncertainty around whether or not Casey will be returning to play the Round 14 game. The Sea Eagles have hopes that Reid will be able to play but await training on Thursday for confirmation.
