THE Atherton Eagles had an even split of results over the weekend as some junior teams played locally and the highest grade travelled to Cairns to face off against the division benchmarks. 

In the U8/9 Miniroos the Atherton Eagles won against Malanda Wasps 3-0. The team played well together, passing and learning to hold their positions and watching the flow of the game, Nicholas’s boot was on fire while Savannah, Finn and Henry all scored goals. 

Ava's defensive game was amazing, Hudson did awesome in the mid-field and Ethan had nerves of steel whilst goalie. The U12’s went down in their first game in Cairns against Redlynch Strikers but created lots of goal scoring opportunities, new players had a great start and best on team went to the backs who had lots of work. 

The U14’s won against Southside Comets 9-1 and kicked off to a great start with a cracking volley goal from Cherinesha off Will’s corner. Will went on to score seven goals and Miren also scored one, best performance goes to the back line with the Comets only having two shots on goal. 

The U15/16’s lost against Saints 0-7, it was a hard game for the newcomers, especially with a few critical players out due to other commitments, sickness or injury. 

With the Saints being the benchmark squad for Division 1, the Eagles gave them space and time on the ball, which the Saints capitalised on.
