The combined Penrith Grizzlies and Central Coast Sharks team are a new venture to get the struggling teams through the end of the year, their combined efforts would valiantly succumb to the Seahawks for an eighth straight win in 2014.
The Seahawks would set several records in the game but also concede a significant presence from the Grizzly-Shark opponents. The Seahawks scored 64 points in the game, the highest ever for the club in colts football and converted all 8 of their touchdowns. Blake Zumot would finish the game with 15 tackles, equalling the club record for Colts football and Zac Nichols would score a record 5 2 point conversions. The Seahawk offence went over 400 yards from scrimmage which is significant for the shortened Colts games.
The Grizzly-Sharks moved the ball well, if not necessarily into the end zone to finish drives. Their offence created the most amount of yards from scrimmage in a game against the Seahawk defence in a game this year and were very even both in the air and on the ground. 32-0 at half time when Jackson Young scored the 3rd of his touchdowns, this time on a kickoff return but the Grizzly-Sharks would control the ball on the next possession for a touchdown of their own.
The Seahawks were able to play all three Quarterbacks and the entire depth of their roster. QB Dylan Dinale scored his first rushing touchdown and WR Reece Weston had his first reception. The 8-0 start is the equal best ever for the Seahawks in Colts football, next week will be a bye week followed by the UTS Titans and then the West Sydney trojans to round out the regular season.
SEAHAWKS 64, GRIZZLY-SHARKS 16
