Eagles Claw Back Into The Hunt!
After a couple of devastating defeats to the Cougars, the Eagles were itching to get out there and take on the Cougars. From the start it was set to be a close game with the score very close for 3 quarters. New Eagle Brent who was battling with a hangover was winning a lot of the ball (can't wait to see what he's like when he's fresh). Big Chucky was dominating the backline with his work rate and learning of the game improving so much and backline teamate "Canadian" Chris was also doing a grand job back there stopping a lot of the Cougars forward movements. Pete Taylor was battling all day and proving even if you dont have a pre-season you can still get a bit of the ball!
After Coach Freeman instructed his boys to "keep running and keep hitting the ball hard and the game will turn", it did, and the Eagle boys were on fire winning the ball out of the middle and it looked like they had stepped it up a few gears. Enter Dale Wakefield who was previously pretty quiet by his standards for 3 quarters and he decided it was time turn-up the forward line by kicking 3 fantastic goals that never looked like missing. In the end it was a fired-up Eagles team that really lifted in the last quarter to run away with this game.
Well done EAGLES!
