Eagles edge out Border Districts

The Eagles came out ready to take the win this week as they faced Border Districts in what is always a tough game.

Injury had the Eagles lining up differently with April Possingham in goals and Gorgia Robbie covering defence.

Penola started strong with some high pressure defence and clean intercepts, finishing the first quarter with a three goal lead.

The Eagles continued to push out their lead with Ashley Merrett and Siobhan Adams driving hard and looking down court for some smooth transitions into the goal circle.

Penola continued to apply pressure into the second half with the defensive unit using some good footwork and clean hands to turn ball for their team.

Border District’s defence also stepped up as they hunted for balls and applied zone pressure through the mid court.

In the last quarter Border Districts increased the intensity and while their last effort rattled the Eagles they were able to come away with a six goal win, 56-50.

In what was a hard fought and physical match for both teams, Penola’s best players were April Possingham and Gorgia Robbie.
