SEABL Round 2 Preview
This week will see our Women’s side at home Friday evening for our Halloween night, then have both teams travel to Nunawading Saturday.
Our SEABL Women split their first weekend of SEABL action 1-1. A disappointing result Friday against Bendigo was quickly turned around Saturday at Sandringham. Once again the Eagles are without Ezi Magbegor and Chevannah Paalvast, who are still away at the Commonwealth Games. This week the Eagles have another home/away double header, hosting the Canberra Capitals Academy on Friday and then heading to Nunawading Saturday to face the Spectres. Both games present their own challenges – Canberra had the first week off and as a result are a little bit of an unknown, whereas the Eagles faced the Spectres in a preseason hit out and lost a narrow game, meaning they are surely in for another tough contest. Keep an eye out for Lauren Scherf, coming off two monster games last weekend and being named in the the SEABL Team of the Week.
The SEABL Men only have the one game this weekend, as they will will also be at the ‘Graveyard’ Saturday evening to play the Spectres. Finishing the opening weekend with 1 win and 1 loss (both games being decided by a single point), the Eagles will take confidence they can match it with anyone as both the Braves and Sabres have two very talented rosters. The Spectres came away winners over the Melbourne Tigers in the opening weekend, and with the likes of SEABL veterans Shane McDonald, Simon Conn and Matt O’Hea; they will present a big task to our young Eagles!
