On the big ground of Boyer Oval on Saturday, the New Norfolk Under 16s were exposed to a lack of fitness and commitment, going down to the more determined North Hobart by three points.
The Eagles played three good quarters of football, but ran out of legs to be eventually over run by the never-say-die Demons.
New Norfolk got off to a great start and in the first quarter kicked 3.1 to the Demons' three behinds. In the second quarter the Eagles still held a lead, but were out scored 1.4 to 2.1. After the half-time break New Norfolk continued to show some good passages of play and held the Demons scoreless while kicking one goal themselves to hold a handy lead of 19 points.
The final quarter saw the match change dramatically and from here New Norfolk was totally outplayed. The Eagles shut up shop, kicking just one behind while North Hobart pilled on 3.5.
For the second match in a row the Eagles went down by less than a goal and with finals not that far away they will be looking to get back on the winners list. The Eagles will need to have a big week on the training track to regain the fitness and commitment they showed earlier in the season that saw them string a number of victories together.
