Tathra and Bega traded blows in four senior grades of Group 16 rugby league on Sunday, but a headline result to the Sea Eagles stole the show.
Both clubs took home two results with a blowout 52-10 win in first grade favouring the hosts at the Tathra Beach Country Club grounds after a scoring frenzy in the first half.
The Roosters were hindered by an early ankle injury to Todd Ingram that kept him sidelined for most of the game, while a few silly penalties coughed up a weight of possession for the home club.
Bega had put on some good attacking sets early in the piece to pressure the Tathra line, but the Eagles' defence had been stoic and turned them away, while an intercept late in a Bega set allowed the hosts to reclaim possession and push out of their own 50.
A good set had Tathra pushing up when play went to the right and Connor Carr powered over for the first points landing the first of three tries before half-time.
From there Tathra secured a weight of possession, with good grubbers into touch and ensuing tackles forcing line dropouts to run in repeat sets.
Just before the drinks break, Bega were pressuring Tathra's line again, but an early tackle on the Tathra fullback as he leaped for a fifth tackle kick drew a penalty and the Eagles went back on the attack.
Play went right again and Connor Carr was once again in position for a strong carry to storm over the Bega line for a double.
After the break, the ball got loose around the 50 metre line with Tathra recovering after Bega played at it before the set saw them head left with Adam Blacka scoring on the left edge.
With Callum Bower-Scott nailing his third challenging conversion from the fringes, the hosts were up 18-0 with about 15 minutes to play.
The Roosters coughed up another penalty when Callum was later held in a tackle after a good run and Connor Carr again put himself in a good place to barrel through the line and find the chalk to lead 24-0 before the break.
Tensions were firing and late in the half the Roosters got some ball time back after a late hit on Scott Fuller was pulled up. With one minute on the clock the Roosters got close, but were pulled down short of the line to trail 24-0 at the break.
Play continued in the same fashion into the second half with the Sea Eagles piling on the pressure to come away with the 52-10 result, ending Bega's undefeated run and lifting themselves up the ladder in the process.
Earlier, Bega's reserves had secured a 28-12 result, while the under 18s clash was almost an exact reversal with Tathra taking the result 24-12.
The league-tag contest was taken out by Bega with an 18-6 result on the day, where organisers said they were thrilled by spectacular sunshine.
