Emerald Eagles in first win
THE Emerald Eagles' prediction that happier days were just around the corner has proved accurate, with the side registering their first win of the season away to the Berserker Bears.
The Eagles produced a stirring come-from-behind victory to continue the improvement they displayed the previous week in a hard-fought loss to Nerimbera.
Coach Jason Cannons said it was amazing the difference a win made.
"We're off and running now," Cannons said.
"The spirit is pretty high. Anything is possible."
Even though Berserker have also been struggling this year, Cannons said that did not take any shine off the win.
"It was a bottom-of-the- table clash," he said.
"Hopefully that'll push us on.
"The boys got a sniff with the win.
"Hopefully they'll use this win and start to move up the ladder."
He was pleased to see his side run out the game strongly - a feature that had been missing from their games previously.
"We've had trouble finishing," he said.
"The boys picked up in the second half.
"They came back from 2-0 down."
It was goals to Cyril Weiki, Tom Wilson (penalty) and James Mortimer that carried the Eagles to their first competition points for the year.
"It's just a matter of trying to gel," Cannons said.
"They're starting to click.
The Eagles face a tough next round when they host Capricorn Coast Premier.
