Eagles U12B v Newbury
March 10th, 2019
Final score Eagles 22 : 28 Newbury
Coming up to the end of the season, with two more matches left to play, this was an important game for Eagles. From the start it was clear that this would be a closely battled game. Both sides came out with a tough defence and Eagles struggled with their passing at times, especially in getting the ball into the circle. The first quarter ended 4 -8.
The second quarter saw some better passing and shooting. Again the defenders kept up the pressure and Eagles stayed with Newbury ending the half just four points behind.
If the match was not tense enough, the third quarter increased the intensity even further. With some excellent teamwork from Eagles, they were able to close the gap, levelling the score at one point. Going into the fourth quarter the score was 16-18 to Newbury.
It was a nail biting final quarter, with Eagles staying close and the defenders doing a good job of slowing down Newbury. But in the end the accuracy of Newbury’s shooters and some great passing proved too much. Newbury took the win 28-22.
Well done to both teams for an exciting and tense match with neither team giving up until the final whistle.
Player of the Match was Annabel.
