The Reserves played Glenelg on Friday night at Thebarton. We again were able to see different players through the team with plenty of younger players getting opportunities.
The first quarter was a tight tussle but we felt Glenelg were in control and we weren’t quite able to execute as we wanted to. The second quarter was a step backwards from what we want to achieve as a Reserves group and the players took accountability for this at the break.
The second half saw a consistent team effort and we were almost able to get a run on to take the lead but credit to Glenelg they were able to resist our efforts and hold on.
This game was a great learning opportunity for our younger players who will take plenty from this as we continue to grow and prepare for Round 1.
We have one last trial before the season starts against PAOC where will look to refine and improve from this game.
It was great seeing so many Eagles supporters last week and we hope to see even more for our last pre season hit out.
