The Development League took on Sturt at Hisense Stadium in the last of a four game fixture on Saturday.
The group cracked in from the first bounce and were able to keep the ball locked in our forward line for large parts of the quarter. Youngster Klaudia O’Neill kicked the opening goal of the match after a very impressive pre-season. Kiley Green led from the front in defence with our defenders doing an exceptional job all day. Basketball convert Brittany Spooner was fantastic in the ruck giving our midfield first look for much of the day. The group were able to scrap and continue to get the ball moving our way for much of the game which was something the coaching staff were impressed with. Kiana Lee worked into the game taking crucial intercept marks inside defence 50 whilst Georgie Blades provided a great marking option at the other end of the field. Although the result didn’t go our way, as a group we were all confident that our brand of footy stacks up against the competition.
This week we are back at Hisense stadium taking on West Adelaide Friday Night. The group is excited and looking forward to the challenge that is ahead. We hope to see the Eagles faithful at the ground.
