U12A Eagles v Magnet

Final score Eagles 57 - 14 Magnet.

Venue: Windsor Girls School

Date: Sunday 6th January 2019


The Eagles looked rested after the Christmas break and took an early lead with three goals in quick succession. This gave the team confidence and gameplay flowed as the ball was passed from end to end with ease. There was solid marking by the Eagles’ defence but Magnet persisted and scored regularly throughout the quarter. Magnet’s Goalkeeper made several impressive blocks to deny Eagles and there were several long range goals from the Magnet’s shooter.

However, the Eagles’ attackers took their chances and the goals started to add up. There was sustained pressure from Eagles’ Wing Attack. 

The quarter finished Eagles 11 - 6 Magnet.

Eagles were relentless in the second quarter and there was a flurry of early goals by the Eagles’ shooters. Magnet started the quarter with passion and scored an amazing goal but Eagles were moving the ball quickly and were keeping possession. Eagles passed the ball accurately and there was plenty of interception by Eagles’ Centre. Eagles’ Wing Attack was proving pivotal to the game and Eagles continued to score time and time again.

The Eagles’ centre third worked hard to feed the ball back to the attackers; their passing, timing and footwork was solid and flawless. The game was fast moving with plenty of action and although Magnet were working very hard, the strength of the Eagles’ defenders shone through. Wing Defence was playing solidly too. The quarter finished with another outstanding goal from Magnet.

The quarter finished Eagles 28 - 10 Magnet.

Magnet were the first to score but once again Eagles dominated at the start of the quarter. Magnet’s defenders were applying much pressure and the Eagles shooters had to work harder to score. Magnet then started to take control, held possession and they scored several goals. The game then became a little rushed and both sides missed opportunities. Penalties were awarded to both sides.

The quarter finished Eagles 40 - 14 Magnet.

Magnet played with determination in the last quarter but Eagles were motivated to increase the goal difference. The Eagles were unstoppable and every member of the team played their part with conviction. Eagles continued to score regularly throughout the quarter and the shooters took more risk with some long range balls. 

Rebecca Perry was Player of the Match. Well done!

Overall an exciting game to watch with both teams playing really well.

Eagles U12A v B's Sky

Final score Eagles 37 : 29 B’s Sky

Eagles U12A Soar to the Summit

10th February 2019, St Neots School was the venue that Eagles U12A won what will probably prove to be their toughest fixture of the season, beating B’s Sky by 37-29.

The game started with even possession between the sides, and perhaps a few signs of nerves in this 'must win' fixture, as a number of passes were mis-placed, and despite having a lead of four at one point, the score was only 9-7 to the away side by the end of the first quarter.

B’s started the second quarter strongly and with Eagles conceding a number of chances, they were slightly fortunate to increase their lead to 16-13 at half time.

In the third quarter Eagles got a grip of the game, with greater possession. The goal shooting continued to be of a high standard, with the percentages of both teams very strong. The third quarter finished with the score at 25-21, with Eagles having increased their lead by one point each quarter.

The team showed great energy in the final quarter and girl of the game Rebecca Perry kept her composure as the score finished 37-29, leaving Eagles set to be perched on top of the league table.

A great match, thank you B’s!
