Waves find right form at the right time
IN A scary thought for the rest of the competition, the Eagles believe they are almost back to their best.
On Saturday, Across the Waves re-established themselves as the team to beat with an impressive 32-point win over Bay Power at Keith Dunne Oval.
After a tight first half as both teams struggled with the windy and wet conditions, Across The Waves kicked away in the second half as they scored nine goals to just four from the Power.
What made the effort even better was they won with few injuries to the team.
With under-17s and reserves called into the game coach and player Michael Sommer-Liverton said the team structure held up well.
“It was a really good performance,” he said.
“We kicked a bit straighter in the second half with the wind and took our chances,” he said.
Pleased with the fitness as well, Sommer-Liverton said the team will enjoy the bye this week.
“We’ve always been a fit side so that was good against the Power,” he said.
“A few pulled up sore after the clash so it will be good to have a week.
“It’s been a long slog the past three weeks.”
With four games to go and the minor premiership now in sight, Sommer-Liverton wants a big final few weeks from the team.
“We’re getting back to our best and getting the results against teams that have gotten stronger over the year,” he said.
“The aim is the minor premiership and that week off before the grand final.”
Meanwhile Bay Power conceded the Waves were too good on the day.
“For what we had and what we did it was pretty good," coach Michael Gay said.
"We battled hard all day but had a couple of lapses in concentration at times."
