EAGALS Bury Maq Uni To Win Big Once Again

Somebody throw in the towel.

After pausing the for a week due to the Queen’s Birthday long weekend, our EAGALS returned the Prems Womens league to formalities, once again reigning as the true Queens of the competition. Our opposition this weekend was Macquarie Uni, a side which we have had many fierce battles with over the years, but this was not one of those affairs.

As I have made it known before, I am really struggling to find new ways to describe how well this side is playing. It is as close to perfect a footy team can get, and there are truly no signs of us slowing down.

Turn up, dominate, repeat. This is the mentality that opposing teams are dealing with right now. Scary, isn’t it.

The game was played under lights, with plenty of wind still around at Kanebridge Oval, making for a contest with testing conditions. This factor threatened to even the match out a little bit, but Maq Uni had no such luck.

We started the game positively, and never looked back, as the game was essentially sealed after quarter-time with our EAGALS leading by 4 goals, 28-1.

Maq Uni have struggled to hit the scoreboard for the majority of this season, and whilst they tried hard in defence, it was just so difficult to stop our mounting wave of class in attack. Our Half-Time lead extended to 34 points.

It was more of the same in the second half, with our EAGALS keeping the foot on the gas, battling through the tough conditions to maintain momentum for the entire match. A 49 point lead at 3QT became 60 by the final siren, and another win was locked up for our EAGALS. Had we kicked a little bit straighter, the margin would have been even bigger, but we weren’t fazed.

Our EAGALS are well and truly flying high. With this win, we have officially achieved a PERFECT 10.

Renee Tomkins was a wall at half-back, and is in scintillating form producing another BOG performance. Jordy Jollife was tremendous as well, kicking 3 goals on her return from injury, showcasing an unbelievable work rate which especially impressed Coach Ash Moeller. Our key players stood up once again, with Tarni Evans, Em Hurley and Chloe Arndt having typically strong showings. Rylee McGartland added 3 goals to her rising league-leading tally.

We face Manly in a top of the table battle next week, and it is sure to be an epic contest.
