Eagles fail to hit heights
WEST Coast coach Adam Simpson was less than impressed with his side’s 10-point win over Carlton at the MCG yesterday, blasting his players’ inability to convert chances in front of goal.
The Eagles kicked the last four goals of the third quarter to set up their fourth win of the season.
“We knew it was going to be a grind but having said that we probably missed a few shots,” Simpson said. “To grind it out and have a victory ... we’ll take it ... and keep going.” Elliot Yeo (26 possessions and 11 tackles), Andrew Gaff (31 disposals and two goals) and Chris Masten (27 touches and a goal) starred.
