Game 1 – ESM Eagles vs Dunfermline
The Eagles‘ first match was against Dunfermline today, maybe it was the earlier push back that was the problem but they were caught off-guard in the first couple of minutes, going 0-1 down to a strong and fast paced opposition.
However they didn’t let it go to their heads, they dug their heels in and kept pushing, working hard as a team and created many chances. Charlie Ellis managed to score twice, from great team and individual efforts. The final score was 2-1 Eagles but it was a convincing win in the end.
Game 2 – ESM Eagles vs Firhill
The second game had it all, goals, drama and nervy moments! Firhill were much bigger and older than the Eagles and looked a formidable side. Despite this, Charlie Ellis scored again to put the Eagles 1-0 up but Firrhill fought back to go 1-1 then taking the lead to make it 1-2.
The squad had to come from behind again! With some excellent teamwork, defending and Charlie Speirs clearing the ball from danger with a swipe of his stick (and losing his helmet in the process!). The Eagles managed to hold Firrhill at bay and a strong attacking contingency managed to find another goal through Charlie Ellis to end the game a respectable 2-2.
Thanks to everyone for the support and encouragement from the sidelines.
