If footy was like a Western Movie, then the EAGALS are the band of gunslingers who everyone fears.
In 2021, our Women’s Premier Division side have carried themselves with a presence, an aura of confidence, but also a beaming nature of mateship. Not only this, but when our EAGALS hit the field they play every single week, delivering the same message to the rest of the competition….
Step Up, And We Will Knock You Right Back Down.
I don’t want to float the phrase Premiership Favourites too heavily for fear of being a jinx, but let’s just say that right now our EAGALS are untouchable.
Round 6, and UTS were our next opponents. So far this season, we have proven that no matter if we are home or away, we bring the pain and get the job done. A game at Bondi in cold, windy conditions wasn’t going to phase us.
Our first half was elite, with our set structures working to a tee, taking UTS best players out of the game from the get go. We worked as an unbreakable unit, with our ball movement cutting UTS to pieces despite the swirly conditions. Everywhere you looked, our EAGALS simply outclassed UTS. No matter whether it was our forward line, led by superstar Rylee McGartland, or our backline who were well on the way to another shutout. Perhaps above all else, it was our midfield which was most impressive. Ally Dallaway, Anna Barton and Jade Swabey were on fire, winning the majority of the contests in the middle, to give their teammates the best chance of going forward. As per usual, our midfield was all held together by the super effort of commanding Ruck Em Hurley. We led by 45 at Half-Time.
We just don’t have any weak links at the current moment, and it only promises to get better.
The game was far more competitive then reflected on the scoreboard in the second half, but it was purely academic, the game was over in the first half, UTS were not coming back. A 6 goal to nil third quarter solidified a big win for our EAGALS, and the final term was goalless for both sides due to the tough conditions, but this didn’t bother us too much.
McGartland finished with 5 goals, and our backline held UTS to zero goals. Another incredible day.
We’re 6-0, and flying high on top of the table. That’s the EAGAL way.
Somebody Stop Us.
If You Can.
