The Sutherland Seahawks Colts team made easy work of the UTS Gators with a 46-0 win at Penannt Hills on Saturday.
Despite starting with backup QB Justin Whiting in his first career start at the position, the offense was commanding. Running Back Haoping Tang scored 4 rushing touchdowns until veteran Qb Daniel Besz arrived at halftime throwing a touchdown to Jackson Young for the offense’s 5th score.
The defense gave up several first downs but did not give up a point. Young had 10 tackles at linebacker and defensive line whilst Jarrad Atkins had his first ever touchdown from an interception on the goal line that he took in to the endzone.
Safety Josh Hayward had 7 tackles for the game as the defense rallied from sideline to sideline against a UTS offense that was determined to attempt to get to the edge.
Back at the receiver position, Whiting had one of the best receptions of the year for 44 yard catch until receiver Matthew Gordon grabbed a 2 point PAT just getting his foot in-bounds.
Next week the Seahawks will travel to the Central Coast for a 5pm game against UTS for a second time. In a strange twist of scheduling the Seahawks played Sydney Uni in back to back games, now UTS in back to back games. Slade Park, Budgewoi is the venue, Saturday November 14th.
