DESPITE the terrible conditions on Saturday Inverloch-Kongwak were still able to dismantle the undermanned Dalyston team by 134-points in a top display of wet weather footy.
Seven changes were made to the Dalyston side from last week, which opened the door for youngsters Josh Thomas and Connor O’Halloran to make their senior debuts while assistant coach Mark Lafferty even pulled on the boots.
Safe to say the Magpies were starting behind the eight ball and it didn’t take long for Toby Mahoney to get the ball rolling for the Sea Eagles with the first major in the opening few minutes.
Mahoney and wingman Oscar Toussaint were on fire in the first term sharing all four of the first quarter goals for IK.
The lead was 27 points at quarter time and it didn’t get any better from there as the goals continued to flow.
Tom Wyatt joined the party in the second quarter booting two goals from set shots along with Will Hetherington and Corey Casey who both nailed majors.
Even Sea Eagles captain Dale Lawton scored a rare snag right on the brink of half time, sending his team into the break with a 62-point lead.
Wyatt kicked things off again with his third goal to start the third, with on baller Andrew Soumilas following soon after.
Dalyston were then able to hold off the rapid attacks for most of the quarter and began to control some of the play.
This led to a good pass from Laffetry that found Jackson Brooker with space at the top of the 50-metre arc and the Magpies had their first goal on the board.
But the Sea Eagles were quick to regather as Shem Hawking slotted a nice goal right on the siren.
IK didn’t take the foot off the gas in the final term, booting another nine unanswered goals to really ram the point home.
Wyatt took his tally to six for the day, with forward partner Mahoney nailing his fourth.
The Sea Eagles ran out massive victors, in a top display from the reigning premier.
They’ll now take on Korumburra Bena at Inverloch, while Dalyston will have to make the journey to Koo Wee Rup in another tough challenge for the injury depleted squad.
