Eagles go down to Ainslie

With a number of new recruits heading to the Sydney Hills for the 2014  season and after a big pre season, the Eagles were looking forward to their trip to the Nations Capital for the opening round clash against Ainslie. Both teams had sentimental reasons for a big match, with Ainslie renaming their oval – The Alan Ray Oval (after a football legend within the club) and Sydney Hills Eagles Captain – Jon Vlatko playing his 150th game.

The Eagles got off to a great start leading by 8 points at the first break. Costly turnovers and defensive errors saw Ainslie take the ascendancy in the second quarter kicking nine goals to four, taking a 20 point lead at the main break.

After the break the tri-colours didn’t look back, buy viagra online in india extending their lead to 30 points at the end of the third quarter, then booting another eight goals in the last for a 59 point thumping of the Eagles. Ainslie’s dominance was highlighted with 33 inside forward 50’s to the Eagles 18 in the second half.

Although the Sydney Hills Eagles couldn’t register a win for Vlatko’s 150th, there were plenty of positives, with new recruits Adam Eckermann – kicking 3 goals and providing a target all day, whilst Kieran Emery was solid at the back.  The Eagles are keen to make amends this coming Saturday as they face a Southport team fresh off a victory over the Gold Coast Suns, in the first game at Bruce Purser Reserve for 2014.
