Bay produce more Power than ATW can handle

BAY Power snapped their losing streak as Across The Waves slumped to their second successive defeat for the first time in years.

The Power hosted the AFL Wide Bay defending premiers at Keith Dunne Oval on Saturday, but entered their home game on the back of four consecutive losses.

Their opponents lost to Hervey Bay Bombers last week, but had won their previous three games.

The Power did not let ATW take the upper hand.

Whenever it appeared the Eagles would take control, Bay Power found a way to fight back.

And come full time, after both sides had 24 scoring shots, the Power stood tall.

Forwards Dale Burt and Glenn Krohn starred on the scoresheet with four and three goals respectively, but coach Michael Gay said the praise was equally spread from the forwards to the backline.

The last time Gay spoke to the Chronicle after a home game, the mentor lamented a lack of accuracy that allowed Brothers Bulldogs an unlikely victory (97-83 on July 23).

While the Power missed a handful of majors, Gay's troops were accurate enough to secure their second win over Across The Waves this season.

"We still turned the ball over a lot and we still have a fair bit of work to do on our skills and maybe our decision-making at times," he said.

BAY POWER 11.13-79 (D. Burt 4, G. Krohn 3, K. Sims, T. Simpson, J. Fredericks, D. McGreevy goals) def ACROSS THE WAVES 10.14-74 (J. Bethune 5, M. Wright 2, P. Power, R. Paterson, M. Sommer Liverton goals) at Keith Dunne Oval, Urangan.
