Bermagui might be showing up big in senior SCAFL, but it didn’t account for the ladies game on Saturday as the Eden Whalers ran away with the result. 

The Whalers are continuing a flawless start to the season that saw them trump the Sea Eagles, by downing the Breakers 12-15-87 to 0-2-2.

Again it proved to be the Whalers’ midfield prodigy in Kamilla Grubesic doing most of the damage on the scoreboard. 

Grubesic had an outstanding game and was able to find the big posts an impressive five times in an excellent display of accuracy. 

Ally Crowe was hot on her heels though with another great all-round performance to kick herself three majors. 

Maggie Brown cleared two shots on goal and the Mitchell sisters Kate and Mel both kicked one apiece as the Whalers dominated their northern rivals throughout the match. 

From the outset the Whalers were in control with the visitors getting 17 points up in the first period with the hosts landing one behind for the quarter. 

In the second quarter the Breakers were able to sink another one-pointer, but that ended the scoring tor them as Eden took so much control as to now allow the hosts any forward line pressure. 

Meanwhile, the Whalers were putting good kicks on goal, providing steady scoring with the lead building to nearly 50 points at three-quarter time and planting almost 30 more points in the last period. 

The Whalers are certainly shaping as early favourites for a second flag, especially with some of the club’s new faces showing immense endeavour on the ball and in the tackles. 

Unfortunately, the Senior Whalers didn’t enjoy the same success as the Breakers dominated play throughout. 

The result favoured the hosts 31-12-198 to 2-7-19.

It was no single player forging the immense score for the Breakers, but an all-round effort through the midfield and front lines with the forward pockets also making an impact on the scoreboard. 

Luke Kingston had the highest count with six goals, but Marcus Shaw and Chris Hales kicked five each in a crushing encounter. 

The margin was 100 points by the main break as the Bermagui line-up all but outclassed the under-strength Eden roster. 

The damage continued in the second half with Bermagui piling on about 50 points per period. 

This weekend the Whalers will again be on the road as they take on the Pambula Panthers at the Pambula Sporting Complex. 

Under 11s run at 9.30am with the under 13s immediately after. 

Women’s will be at 1.10pm and seniors from 2.30pm.
