Collie Eagles and Eaton Boomers heads reflect on Sunday's clash

Collie Eagles and Eaton Boomers' coaching staff are taking the positives and negatives out of their round five clash last weekend. 

Collie Eagles league assistant coach Seth White said the team took advantage of the wind and elevated throughout the second half. 

“It was a challenging day, Eaton are obviously very good through the midfield, a couple of power forwards up there, so you win ugly and there may have been a classic example of that today,” he said.

Eaton Boomers league coach Brett Maguire said the side would work on fitness and intensity before their round six clash. 

“I’m hoping that we can do very well, very much like today it depends on how we turn up and where our mindset is but I’m quietly confident in our group,” he said.  

The Collie Eagles Football Club colts and reserves scored mixed results against Eaton’s sides. 

The colts were dealt a 15.12.102 to 7.5.47 loss to Eaton on Friday, May 12 at Hands Oval. 

The side trailed by 14 points at quarter time, before Eaton delivered a six goals to one second quarter. 

Collie’s reserves side fared better, spurred on by a home crowd throughout their 9.11.65 to 6.3.39 victory on Sunday. 

The Eagles were ahead from the outset, with four goals from Eugene Hart and three from Luke Abbott leading the charge.
