An­other heavy Ea­gles loss

Mansfield Courier - - FRONT PAGE -

WHILE the Mans­field Ea­gles seniors started off well dur­ing their match against the Euroa Mag­pies on the week­end, they soon fell be­hind, cop­ping a 46 point loss.

“We were do­ing al­right un­til about 5- 10 min­utes i nto t he sec­ond quar­ter, when Jimmy Her­ridge got re­ported for el­bow­ing some­one in the back of the head,” coach Cam Hot­ton said.

Jimmy Her­ridge was taken off the ground as a re­sult, leav­ing the Ea­gles one man down against Euroa, who are sit­ting com­fort­ably in third po­si­tion on the lad­der.

“We were just play­ing some or­di­nary football,” said Cam.

“It was a men­tal thing – all the boys just seemed to be switched off.

“We could have done a lot bet­ter.”

While the boys lost to Euroa in their nest, Cam noted the ef­forts made by Ashraf Davies and Lachy Christo­pher.

“There weren’t t oo many high­lights and we went out there with a lack of in­ten­sity, but they played quite well,” said Cam, re­fer­ring to both Ashraf and Lachy.

With their hopes up, the Ea­gles will be busily pre­par­ing for an­other home match against Be­nalla this Satur­day.

“Be­nalla are sit­ting com­fort­ably in sec­ond po­si­tion,” said Cam.

“We’re still hop­ing that we can bounce back.”
