Well what a game. Oliver said it was the hardest so far.
Penno came out of the gates flying with three unanswered goals. With a depleted side 9 v 14 the Eagles dug deep and worked hard on the game plan of leading and marking up. The midfield of Oliver, Ralph, and Matt steadied the Pennant Hill rampage with good hustle and clean delivery to the forwards . A great mark and goal by Sohail and Max.
Was even with Pennant Hills. Highlights - A long bomb by Matt from near middle field that bounced through. A great text book mark and goal from Ralph set up by some clean clearances out of the middle by Rhys, Colby, and Jordian. You could see our goals were starting to come easier. The Eagles were building.
The Eagles came out and dominated the qtr. Max won some heavily contested footy, Sohail and Jordian pushed the ball forward where Rowan, Rhys and Colby shone.
Took a turn for the worse,Penno came back with three Straight goals then our whole midfield got injured simultaneously. Ralph and Oliver were elbowed in the head accidentally and Matty had a massive knock to the knee. It wasn't the ending we expected. Even the Pennant Hills coach said that was a real scare from a depleted side.
Brilliant effort team.The rematch at Rolf park should be Interesting to say the least. Well done.

Round 1- U10 Blues v Goannas was a roadtrip to Gipps Rd Greystanes against the Holroyd Parramatta Goannas.
It was a hot day, a tough game, and all the players stood up and played really well, with player of the match Rhys leading the way.
The game was evenly matched with The Eagles scoring two goals each quarter and in the last quarter 3 goals. The boys led and marked consistently in a fast flowing game.
Rowan's hustle and speed in playing on was fantastic.Colby and Jordan took some great marks. Oliver and Rhys never stopped running.
Max and Sohail were consistently solid whenever they defended . Ralph the new comer to the game showed he has a good football brain and skills to match.
Last but definitely not least the little fellow with the big ticker that came up from the under 9s, Max hassled and gained possession until he wore himself out.
A special thanks to Nicholas from the Reds for making the journey to Greystanes .
A fantastic team effort, and I couldn't be prouder.
