Eagles soar above Saints
Reigning premiers Looma Eagles soared on home turf after earning themselves a comfortable victory over Saints on Saturday.
Although the Saints had spent much of their game-day morning travelling to Looma, they managed to get the early lead during the opening term, kicking two goals among a string of behinds, while the Eagles managed just one goal from Vincent Skinner by quarter-time.
However, it was during the second quarter that the Eagles kicked into a new gear, taking the lead with goals from Remahli Skeen, Lewis Broome and Deromitt Wilson.
Angus Boult-Lyne was the shining light for the Saints, booting two goals to bring the margin to just two goals at half time.
Following the main break, the Eagles continued their flying form, kicking four goals in the process.
However, the Saints tried to match their rivals, kicking four goals to keep the margin at 12 points at three-quarter time. Despite the relatively close margin at the final break, the Eagles booted three goals to seal the win, keeping the Saints to just one behind.
The Saints will look to redeem themselves on home turf when they challenge the undefeated Cable Beach Greenbacks tomorrow at Father McMahon Oval, while the Eagles will face Towns at Father McMahon Oval on Saturday.
