NOT THE WAY TO END A SEASON.

A pretty dismissal performance ended the Sutherland Seahawks ‘ 2016 Division One season. A 31-6 loss to the Northern Rebels was a dour finish, with the Rebels dominant for much of the encounter.

The Seahawks continued to have trouble with a passing game that has had a lot of effort put in for the 2016 season but has struggled in the final 3 games. Throwing 4 interceptions, the offence could not make any head way to make up for a terrible start by the defence. Poor field position and simple assignment issues allowed the much more physical and enthusiastic Rebels easy points.

Down 19-0 at the half a well executed punt return by Billy Lennon put the game somewhat in reach however more late scores and injuries at the QB position quickly halted any comeback.

A 5-5-1 record was hardly an overwhelming success for 2016 in what has been a significant drain on resources.
