Eagles break the drought
SOUTHERN FOOTBALL LEAGUE
THERE are a lot more smiles in the Derwent Valley tonight as New Norfolk 14.14 (98) has defeated Brighton 6.11 (47) to register the Eagles' first victory of the 2016 season at Boyer Oval today.
Is this the game that turns around the season for coach Matthew Smith and his men? They now must prepare to face the Huonville Lions next weekend in Round 6 of the SFL.
On the other hand there will be some soul searching at the Robins Nest as two rounds ago they sat in second spot on the ladder but have now slipped well away from the pack of clubs leading the way at the top of the ladder.
