Eagles fall at last hurdle

The Eagles entered the BLK AFL Sydney Premier Division Grand Final last Sunday having experienced a wonderful minor round season in which they suffered only the one defeat. The run continued in the second semi-final with a victory over Pennant Hills enabling them to transfer directly to the Grand Final.

Their opponents once again would be Pennant Hills with the Demons defeating St George in the Preliminary Final. The scene was set for yet another local derby between the two Hills based clubs who have been long time rivals.

But the fairy tale season would end in a hurry for the Eagles at Henson Park in Marrickville as they were no match on the day for a rampaging Pennant Hills side who, after three quarter time, dominated the final term to kick eight goals and go on to win by 35 points – 14.5 (89) to 7.12 (54).

There were no excuses cialis online 20 from the Eagles. They were simply not good enough when it counted at critical times in the match and the major prize in Sydney footy eluded them in season 2015.

Best for the Eagles were Blake Anderson, Stu Turner, Andrew McConnell, Andrew Browning, Aaron Savage and Jamie Vlatko.
Goalkickers: Jamie Vlatko 3, Scott Reed, Andrew McConnell, Jack Dimery & Trent Stubbs.

The Eagles will acknowledge all players and supporters who have contributed to its otherwise successful return to Sydney football at the annual Club Champion evening on Saturday October 31st in the Lyceum Auditorium at Castle Hill RSL.
