Bay powers past Maroochydore Roos to remain undefeated
ANOTHER victory in Bay Power's march in the AFL Wide Bay season has done little to improve coach Michael Gay's optimism.
Instead, Gay has pledged to keep a cool head despite Power's thumping of the Maroochydore Roos on the weekend in Urangan.
With the side at full strength, Gay's Power ran rings around the Roos to finish the game with a 21.13-139 - 7.8-50 win.
"We're playing with some pretty good systems in place now," Gay declared.
Those systems include better foot and hand skills, allowing the side to play more confidently.
"It's one of the things we've needed to lift to get better in the competition," he said.
Despite winning both their matches this season Gay is not looking to the finals series just yet.
"It's only two games in and we've got a long season, one week at a time," he said.
"I believe our test will come this weekend on Anzac Day in Bundaberg against (Hervey Bay) Bombers."
The significance of the annual Anzac Day double-header will remain this year.
"We prepare like it's just as any other day - Anzac Day has special significance," the Power coach said.
"It's game on and we'll keep concentrating on the things we need to be doing."
