Murgon smashes Eidsvold
EIDSVOLD was smashed on its home ground by Murgon on Saturday night.
The Mustangs ripped into the Eagles, defeating them 44 to 12.
Despite the loss, Eidsvold coach and player Blake Popp said he was happy with how his team performed.
“I’m feeling pretty good,” Popp said.
“That was one of the best games we’ve had all year.
“It was just unlucky that Murgon ran away with it at the end there.”
Popp said the game was a clash between two strong forward sides.
“There were some big hits up the middle,” he said.
“I was happy with how the boys were running, they didn’t stop.
“We were unlucky not to get a win out of it.”
While Popp said he was happy with his forwards, they were not strong enough to break through the Mustangs’ defence, which coach JasonWebber said they had been working hard to strengthen.
“The one thing we were trying to work on leading into the finals was our defence and early on we let that one try in, but I was really pleased with our effort in defence,” Webber said.
“There was a lot more speed in our defensive line which was good.”
Eidsvold will take on Mundubbera for their last game before the finals at the Martin Love Oval in Mundubbera on Saturday.
