Weekend Wrap Up: 
Round 3 vs North Geelong

The Eagles had a tough day against North Geelong on the Magpies home deck, with both the seniors and reserves going down against the more experienced Magpie outfit.

The reserves were boosted by the Ins of new recruits Harris Monahan and Nick Wines but the Eagles were unable to challenge the reigning GDFL reserves premiers, going down 13.8. 86 to 4.6. 30

Declan Hancock was once again brilliant, notching his 3rd straight best on ground performance from centre half back, whilst Wines, Robbie Brown, Jake Smith and James Vandenberg also had terrific games for the Eagles in their tough loss.

The seniors went into the clash with the Magpies without Nick Elliot and Vince Chapman missing with injuries.

The boys had a back and forth day in regards to form against the Magpies, getting off to a great start in the first quarter with skipper Ash Brown being a terrific option up forward early. This unfortunately was then hampered by experienced midfielders Haydn Ververs and Mitch Hoaren succombing to injury just before quarter time, leaving the Eagles down to 2 on the bench for the remaining 3 quarters. 
The Magpies outclassed the Eagles in the second quarter, kicking 6 goals to 1 and going into halftime with a comfortable 37 point lead.

The boys were brave in the third quarter, with first gamer Ryan Marino in the midfield and Jacob Ngarwati once again solid down back allowed the boys to cut the margin thanks to huge goals from Chris Warwick, Bill Spicer, Jack Elliot and Trent Laurie.

Unfortunately the more experienced Magpies were able to pile on 8 goals in the final quarter to run away with a 21.10. 136 to 10.5.65 victory.

The scoreline was misleading however as it did not show how brave the boys were and how they matched the Magpies in various stages of the game.

Skippers Earl Cody and Ash Brown were once again stellar, whilst Harley Jacobs and Jacob Ngarwati were fantastic in defence.

The Weekend Wrap Up: 
Round 2 vs Corio (Football)

The Eagles have gotten their season back on track with two great victories in round 2 against Corio at home.
The reserves had a convincing 52 point win over the devils in windy conditions at Richmond crescent, kicking 5 goals in the first quarter to 1 and never looking back, running away with the 12.13 85 to 5.3 33.
Declan Hancock was stellar once again, bagging 3 goals and receiving best on ground honours, veteran superstar Tim Buckingham and speedster Josh Alessi also showed some terrific sign, whilst cult figure Matthew Czarnuch followed up his dangerous form from the week before and once again troubled the scorers.
The seniors also had a terrific win in a hard fought contest that finished with the boys having a well-deserved 15 point victory.
The first half was very back and forth in tough conditions, the boys got off to a great start, kicking 4 goals to 2 in the first quarter but the Devils responded in the second, as heavy rain and lightning making the contest tight and tough, with the Eagles holding a 5 point lead at halftime.
A great third quarter from the backline allowed the Eagles to stretch their lead to 16 points at 3 quarter time, and the boys answered every time the Devils threatened to come over the top, with crucial goals to Haydn Marshall, Jack Elliot and Riley Koops saw the Eagles win 14.10.94 to 11.13.79.
Josh Bolitho was fantastic in defence in his first game, whilst fellow defenders Earl Cody and Jacob Ngawati also were huge for the Eagles. Ruben Vesikuru and Hayden Ververs were stellar in the middle, whilst Vince Chapman was a huge presence in the forward line.
Skipper Ash Brown led from the front all day, finishing with 3 goals, Daina Coulter also slotted 3 in a fantastic first game for the year for him.
The boys will now enjoy a week off then face a huge test against North Geelong. βœŠπŸ¦… #eastgeelong #egfnc #eagles #eaglesnest #football #gdfl

A few members have decided to run a fundraiser for baby Quinn O'leary and family at East Geelong footy/netball club on Saturday night starting @ 07:00pm. Cam Bryce will be playing music 
We will be running an auction, having a couple of raffles, bar will be open for drinks and a bit of pizza 
All proceeds raised will be forwarded on to Sean & Brooke to assist in being able to stay in Melbourne whilst Quinn is in hospital and transporting the other kids up and down the highway every 2nd day to support their baby brother etc.

Can you please let all of Sean and Brooke's other friends and family know!

It's a great gesture from those involved and both the Ferguson and O'Leary family appreciate it immensely and are extremely thankful.

It will be great to see you all there and raise some funds. I'm hearing there are a couple of great items up for auction that have been donated which is extremely generous... Let's get as many people as we can there and celebrate what a wonderful fight young baby Quinn is putting up ❀️ #keepfightingquinn

Tomorrow is our first practice match against Birregurra!

At our home ground (Richmond Crescent) from 11.30am the Seniors/Reserves teams will kick off in a 6 quarter match, which will be a good first "official" hit out following our solid intra-club session last week. 
The netballers have also been training hard and the A, B, C, and D grades will be playing tomorrow from 12pm onwards. 
The bar will open and the BBQ will be fired up, so come on down and check out what is happening at the Eagles nest leading up to season 2017! 
Following the practice match is our season launch at the @elephantcastlegeelong (6.30pm onwards) with friends, volunteers, members, players and well wishers all welcome to attend! 
Go Eagles!

Last year a group of our players and coaching staff worked with @barwon_health and lent a hand to some of Geelong's palliative care recipients.

The Barends of Belmont were one such couple who had the boys come and give their backyard a makeover. It was a very rich and rewarding experience for all involved.

Barwon Health are currently looking for volunteers to lend a hand to other Geelong residents, if you wish to be involved head over to the Barwon Health Facebook page for more information.

Our club will most certainly be involved again!
