Eagles teams swept by Lions

It was a weekend to forget with all four Collie Eagles senior teams recording defeats against Harvey Brunswick Leschenault.

The colts started the day with a four-point loss in a back-and-forth game. The Eagles kicked three goals to one in the first term but missed opportunities to stretch the lead even further, before the Lions kept them scoreless in the second quarter to take a nine-point lead.

The Eagles regained the lead in the third quarter and held a two-point lead at the final change but were overrun by the Lions, who took out the 10.6 (66) to 9.8 (62) victory.

Bailey Edwards and Kolbee Fleay were the stars for Collie, kicking six and two goals respectively.

The Eagles reserves were severely outclassed by Harvey Brunswick Leschenault in their 118-point loss.

The Lions kept Collie goalless for the first three quarters of the game before Bryce Cain and Liam Reuben hit the scoreboard in the final term of the Eagles’ 2.3 (15) to 20.13 (133) loss.

The women’s team got off to a flying start in its match, kicking four goals – the most the team has kicked in a quarter in its short history – to none to lead by 25 points at quarter time.

However the Lions restricted the Eagles to just one behind for the remaining three quarters and slowly worked their way back into the game to claim the 6.8 (44) to 4.2 (26) win.

Tahlia Dawson-Gibbs starred in the midfield for the Eagles, while Brooklyn Nelson kicked three of the four goals.

Despite the loss, the Eagles still sit in seventh position on the ladder, one spot above the Lions due to percentage.
