Sea Eagles soar into season

INVERLOCH-KONGWAK got off to a flying start to the season when it played at home against the Korumburra-Bena on Saturday.
The Giants hunted down the ball in the first term and showed some tough competition despite being outscored 20 to seven, with the Sea Eagles getting off the mark in the last ten minutes of the quarter. IK rotated and shifted positions continuously in an attempt to find a comfortable fielded side.
The visitors were keen to play off the margin, however the Sea Eagles kicked it up a notch in the second term and finished the first half on 73 to 20 as the Giants only managed to kick two majors.
Tom Wyatt and Lucas McMillan shared the load, each kicking four goals throughout the match and pushing to up the margin following half time when the Sea Eagles found their groove.
IK’s newcomer Toby McMahon proved to be a strong contender, kicking three majors in the match while another new recruit Will Hetherington also managed to kick a goal in his debut.
The Giants were fatigued going into the third term with an undermanned side struggling to keep up with the heavily rotated Sea Eagles.
Term three saw the Sea Eagles push for a 90 point margin on its opponent who struggled and only contributed a further major and two behinds to the quarter.
The Sea Eagles did not let a major margin get in the way of booting some high scores with its top players adding another eight goals to the tally.
Giants’ Jesse Van Rooye contributed two majors to the scoreboard on the day, helped by only one major each from Beau Anthony and Nathan Cant.
The Giants lagged further behind and failed to score in the last quarter, with the final score seeing IK win on 173 to 28.
Best on ground Tom Wyatt managed four goals in his various forward positions and proved to be a tough opponent both in the air and on the ground.
The Sea Eagles will play Stony Creek this weekend with coach Ben Soumilas keen to lead his team against former seniors coach and current Stony Creek seniors coach Steve Coats.
