AFL: The winning steak continued for the Senior Whitsunday Sea Eagles side as they took on Bakers Creek on Saturday.

The Sea Eagles had little trouble knocking Bakers Creek over with a score of 17.8.110 to Bakers Creek 4.9.33.

Whitsunday Sea Eagles coach Luke Sommerville said he was happy with the victory and was impressed with the consistent form ahead of the finals.

Trevor Richie, Tim Kimberley and Ryan Lee stood out as key players for the clash.

Next Saturday will see the Sea Eagles take on the Mackay Magpies at the Whitsunday Sportspark for the last round of the season.

Womens:

The women's clash against Bakers Creek was described as a "very physical” encounter.

Bakers Creek took an early lead of seven goals at half time and several unfortunate incidents led to a number of Whitsunday players being taken off the field.

Coach Darren Jackson had a half time pep talk with the girls and they decided to keep playing while numbers were down.

Jackson expressed pride in the girls for their performance in the second half but it wasn't enough as they trailed 1.0.6 against Bakers Creek 9.11.65.

The women's side will take on Magpies next week.

Under 17:

A post first quarter blast from coach Micheal Jarvis brought the U-17 side into action after a slow start.

Alex Shultz dominated the centre and went on to open up the forward line for Jaden Clark to kick four goals.

Anthony Taylor enjoyed a memorable moment scoring his first goal for the Sea Eagles, leading to an eruption of support from his team mates.

The back line Sea Eagles defence stood strong against Bakers Creek and only let one goal through.

This led to an overwhelming victory for the Sea Eagles of 20.11.131 to Bakers Creek Sea Eagles on 1.1.7.
