Reserves bag first win for Eagle men this year

THE New Norfolk Reserves today (Saturday) scored the first win for the Eagles’ men’s team this year, with a 152-point victory over the rebuilding Hobart Tigers. This victory was quickly followed by the Senior team defeating the Tigers by 131 points. The Eagle women, who are three from three so far this year, did not play today.

Kicking off at Boyer Oval at noon, the game was played in sunny conditions in front of a good crowd. The Eagles raced away to a 35-point lead by quarter time, with the Tigers registering only one point for the term. Hobart managed a second minor score in the following quarter but did not trouble the scoreboard after that.

The final scores were New Norfolk 23.16 (154) to Hobart 0.2 (2) and the Eagles club song was soon being shouted from the men’s changerooms for the first time this year.

Zane Lester was named New Norfolk’s best player. Also on the best players list were Rohan Heron, Ryan Bartels, Tyson Eiszele, Riley Triffett, Ethan Holden. Heron booted seven of the Eagles’ 23 goals and Nick Ransley kicked three.

Single goals were scored by Tyson Eiszele, Mitch Ford, Ethan Holden, Jake King, Riley Triffett, Zane Lester, Rhys Franklin, Tyler Scanlon, Conor Kelly-Lennox, Luke Crosswell, Brodie Scanlon, Bradley Slater and Jakob Quarrell.

Next weekend the Eagles play Lindisfarne at Anzac Park.
