FOOTBALL | Euroa 14.3 – 87 v Mansfield 13.7 – 85
Unfortunately, we were unable to secure a victory again on the weekend losing by a couple of points.
With a number of people injured our effort has been commendable; however, we just haven’t been able to get across the line. Our focus over the last few weeks has been about celebrating the small things within a game in order to create winning behaviours that will hold us in good stead going forward.
It has been a tough run for us but we need to stay together as a group and ensure that the remainder of the season isn’t a complete waste.

NETBALL | Euroa 20 v Mansfield 62
Perfect sunny conditions in Euroa, gave a great start to the day for our A graders.
And with the round 13 draw to Mooroopna still fresh in our minds, we wanted to come out strong early and build from there.
With a lot of last years Euroa A graders stepping back to B grade this year, the side looks to be rebuilding with some great youth coming through.
Early in the game Eagles defenders were able to get on top of the Euroa attackers, creating huge pressure through the centre third and forcing Euroa to pass long, which saw us too strong in the air.
Having a full side, we were able to utilise our rotations and work on some different combinations.
Our attacking end performed our Center pass systems perfectly, demonstrating great speed on the line. It was also great to see our second phase movement down court being done consistently throughout the game, which is something we have been working on.
With 4 tough games to finish, we sit in 7th position on the ladder, we look to finish the year strong and continue to improve on our first round performances.
