Narrow loss to league leaders for Eagles
By Secretary Account
A run of four losses to Olympia would stretch to five for the Eagles ladies
Olympia started strong with a 2-goal lead, this was reduced to 1 by a fast break by Sunniva. Annette followed this goal by an incredible TRIPLE SAVE and a penalty save thereafter. Olympia continued with a few goals and Eagles were always in sight of the lead, but missed chances that should have been scored. Half time score 10-13 to Olympia.
The second half started much stronger for Eagles, by scoring goals from the wing and the backcourt. Some superb saves by Lilla and strong defence by Eagles made the scores even at 17-17. A few chances missed by Eagles and 2 last minute goals by Olympia meant a loss of the Eagles 20-22.
A strong second half performance meant there was some positives to take away from the match, but this demonstrated the Eagles need to work on finishing their shots.
