Under 14s finish runner-up for 2016 after losing to Myrtleford on Sunday

TEAM EFFORT: The Mansfield Under 14 Eagles team who were runners up in the Wangaratta District Junior Football League competition in 2016.

DESPITE the heavy rain during the week, the Under 14 Eaglets were presented with a sensational day for footy in their grand final at Wangaratta on Sunday.

Going in as underdogs, the boys were upbeat and excited about their chances in the big game, and had a fantastic final week on the track.

Some proactive supports made sure that the players were encouraged all the way, with the road to the Midland Link decorated with players names, numbers and support messages.

Huge thankyou to Kath Mahoney and Kristie Payne who went over and above.

The game got underway, and for the first five minutes it was an arm wrestle, before the Myrtleford Saints started to show their strength around the ball.

With the ball continuously going into their forward line, the scoring started to flow, and at quarter time the Eagles were 30 points down with no registered score.
