THE Gladstone Mudcrabs caught Yeppoon by surprise on Saturday afternoon, racing towards the goals before the opposition could gather itself.

A strong start saw the home team charge to break the defensive line, recording a behind within the first two minutes of the game.

Midfielders Danny Clay, Kurt Hanson and Josh Brown got into the action early, affirming their presence on the Clinton Oval.

Spectators would be remiss in thinking the Mudcrabs had not suffered a tough start to the season, currently sitting at fifth place on the table.

But the dominating win the team scored over the visiting Swans has offered a lot of hope the season has a lot of life left in it for the Mudcrabs.

President Michael Galonski said the juniors had performed exceptionally in a game where there were no guarantees.

"It's been a tough season but it's been a great opportunity to get the young kids on the field with some more experienced players and get some exposure to the game," he said.
