It was a mixed bag of results for the Narrandera Eagles on the weekend, who travelled to Leeton to take on the Crows.
The reserves had an excellent win over Leeton-Whitton, coming out the victors 63-8. Leeton were unable to get any points on the board for the first half of the game, and were only able to score a goal and two behinds in the third quarter.
The under 17s were a different story, falling to the Crows 88-40. The Crows had the upper hand on the Eagles from the beginning, but the Eagles were still able to remain competitive. A burst of energy from the Crows in the third quarter put a massive lead on the scoreboard, with the Crows scoring five goals to the Eagles one. The distance was just too much for the Eagles to cover, and the Crows had the day.
The Seniors also had a loss to the Crows. The Crows were quick to put numbers on the board in the first quarter, and continued to put pressure on the Eagles throughout the game. While the Eagles were able to get some points on the board, the side ran out of legs in the final quarter, with the Crows putting an additional five goals between them and the Eagles. The final score was 88-31.
Despite the setbacks, the side are optimistic for next week’s game. The Eagles will face Coolamon next weekend at Kindra Park.
With the general bye this weekend courtesy of the school holidays, the Juniors will not play again until Saturday July 21. For all the junior Eagles results, see Thursday’s Narrandera Argus.
