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.
