Eagles Women into National Cup Semi-Finals
Eagles travelled to Oldham for the second time in seven days to take on Liverpool in the cup quarter-final
Liverpool – the current leaders in the Regional League North – scored the first two goals of the game against the visiting Londoners. Despite being quick to respond in attack, the disorderly defence let the home team score 12 goals by half time (12-15).
In the second half, the teams followed each other closely until 45’ min played when the Eagles defence managed to pressure Liverpool sufficiently enough to steal the ball and increase the lead by 3 goals, making it 24-30 at full time.
A pleased team could travel home from Liverpool on Sunday night – however, there’s more work to be done in defence for the West London team ahead of the semi-finals which will be against NEM Hawks, Cambridge or Reading, at the weekend of 16th/17th March.
