The Eagles took on Watsonia at Binnak Park at the weekend in a game that demonstrated the side’s ability to keep their winning streak alive and to further cement their top-of-the- ladder position.

Matt Langford came back into the team, Jett Fraumano made his senior debut, and again Taidgh Bland demonstrated why he is in contention for the MVP Award.

The high pressure game took its toll on the scoreboard early with only one goal scored in the opening term.

By half time, the Eagles had managed just three goals with Watsonia trailing with just one. The scoreboard showed 10 behinds between the two teams in the highly contested game.

Solid ruck work and a fast moving centre saw the Eagles maintain a comfortable lead to take the game comfortably from Watsonia at the final siren.

Whittlesea 9.14 (68) defeated Watsonia 5.4 (34) seeing the Eagles two games clear of closest rival Diamond Creek.

Jack Taylor was the major contributor for the Eagles with five goals. Lucas Hobbs, Riley Powell, Jaron Murphy, and Paul Higgins added to the final score with one goal each.

Best on ground for the Eagles were Jack Taylor, Taidhg Bland, Xavier Dimasi, Deakin Tennant, Mitchell Andrews, and Lucas Hobbs.

Another miss for Laurimar

Laurimar went down to Diamond Creek at the weekend in the 7.4 (46) to 9.8 (62) result.

Goals were scarce in the opening term with both sides trading goal for goal either side of the main break.

Laurimar came back strongly in the closing stages but despite a strong final quarter the Power could not catch Diamond Creek.

Best for Laurimar were Nathan Andrews, Ethan Bateman, Bailey Macleod, Luke Wilson, Aidan Clarke, and Kaiden Arthur.

Luke Wilson booted two goals for the Power with Campbell Walker, Noah Mooney, Aiden Clarke, Nathan Andrews, and Jai Langford contributing with one each.

Mernda’s loss

Mernda 7.6 (48) lost to Epping 14.9 (93) in what was a highly contested third versus fourth battle.

Accuracy cost both sides in the opening term with eight behinds and only two Epping goals on the board. It was not until two minutes into the second term that Kyle Yankos recorded Mernda’s first major.

But from then on it was all Epping with Mernda only managing one behind.

The third term was a little more balanced but the final quarter was all Epping with a five goal blitz.

Best for Mernda were Jayden Bell, Nathan Baccega, Joel Harris, Josh Mazzarella, Christian Evans, and Lincoln Coffey.
