In a match which both sides desperately needed to win after coming off defeats, the Eagles started the match in control booting four of the first five majors. After trailing early throughout the first term, Cole Gerloff kicked a much-needed goal to stop the Eagles momentum at the 17th minute mark. In form forward Peter Bampton then marked strongly to register his first of the afternoon to cut the deficit to seven-points at the first change.

Norwood started the second term with a new lease of life as upcoming star Cameron Taheny nailed his first set shot of the afternoon to give the Redlegs the perfect start. The Redlegs started to get first use of the football as Mitch Grigg was influential along with Dom Barry and Dylan Stephens. Norwood went onto kick three of the next four majors, courtesy of Brady Dawe and Cameron Taheny to set up a 13-point lead at the main break.

The Premiership quarter started in favour of the Eagles, however both sides proved wasteful in front of goal. Bampton registered his second of the match in the 13th minute and that proved to be last major kicked of the term. The Eagles had plenty of chances in front of the sticks however they proved to be inaccurate.

The Eagles drew first blood in the final term through Jake Von Bourtouch, before Gerloff made no mistake from 35 metres to get Norwood back within the contest. Unfortunately for the Redlegs, the pressure the Eagles supplied saw them register then next two majors to close in on their second win of the year.

Despite Sam Baulderstone’s long range goal on the final siren, it wasn’t enough to rescue the Redlegs as they fell to an 11-point loss. Mitch Grigg was influential with 32 disposals and Dom Barry found plenty of the ball gathering 23 touches.
