Batemans Bay Seahawks record two massive wins on Saturday against Ainslie

Two massive wins on Saturday against Ainslie have put both Seahawks Senior grades up into 5th position on their respective ladders. The day kicked off in style as their Reserve grade notched up their second consecutive win with a 60 point victory. The Seahawks took the lead early with Andy Pustavrh kicking two first quarter goals helping the Seahawks to a 10 point lead at quarter time. The second quarter was a tough tussle again with both teams going goal for goal and the Seahawks lead improving to 15 points at half time. Seahawks boys took it up another notch in the third with Connor Art and Jacomb Graham proving far too strong down back and taking control of the game. It was more of the same in the last quarter with Ramon Porquet and Lachlan Croke getting on top in the middle giving their forwards plenty of opportunity. Coach Jamie Kemp lead the way up forward with 4 goals whilst the ever reliable Chris Hales chimed in with 3. The Seahawks jumped out of the blocks in the First Grade encounter with Cody Cameron kicking two first quarter goals and the boys taking a 20 point lead into quarter time. The Batemans Bay boys looked as if they were cruising but a second quarter fight back from Ainslie chopped down the Seahawk lead to only 4 points at the main break. The Seahawks came out with a spring in their step in the third quarter with Ben McKay and Jarrod Thompson on top in the middle of the ground and young Will Aiken providing a spark up forward. Three quick goals in the final quarter and the Seahawks were on the way to a 43 point victory and their 3rd win of the season. McKay, Aiken and the returning Nathan Blackburn were strong all day whilst Simon Croft was impressive in the backline along with Coach Michael Kenny. Cody Cameron continued his goal kicking form with 5, while Ross Hummel kicked 4 and Shaun Green with 3 of his own. Both teams are away to the fourth placed ANU Griffins on Sunday. Well Done Hawkies 🦅🦅
