THE mighty Mansfield reserves headed off to Echuca on Sunday morning to play Kyabram in a Goulburn Valley Football League elimination final.
A win would guarantee two shots at the grand final but a loss would end their season.
With a fit and healthy list to choose from it was an excellent side on paper.
The query was whether the boys could actually put it all together when it mattered most.
It was great to see a lot of local faces travelling up and also the guys that missed out doing the running and also out running water.
The Eagles played a great four quarters of football and showed real care for one another.
