Boambee Eagles Come from Behind in 7 Goal Thriller

June 29th, 2016

Boambee Eagles came from behind to beat Coffs United 4-3 in a thrilling contest at Leisure Park on Tuesday Night.

The Eagles were missing a key defender for the match, and the Lionesses made the most early on, utilising the pace of Bec Tong and Ellie Slattery on the flanks.

After just 25 minutes Coffs were leading 3-0 and Boambee looked in trouble.

Ellie Slattery scored the first after five minutes, making a great run down the left wing and finishing in the far corner.

Bec Tong then scored a similar goal down the right wing, and got an important touch from a corner to put Coffs 3-0 up and in the drivers seat.

However the League leaders showed they’re at the top for a reason, and after a poor opening half an hour regathered themselves and started dominating possession.

Boambee Coach Glenn Bennett said overall he was happy with the performance but stressed the need to make the most of possession with goals.

“We had a great second half, but our first half was a bit poor. Plenty of possession but just no goals to show for it.”

“At halftime I think it was 3-1 and I said to the girls that we’re still in it. We had almost all the possession but just couldn’t create anything, so that’s what the second half was about”.

Kylie McDonald finished off a good team move on the 70th minute, netting her second of the night. Coffs United opted to defend their lead, and allowed Boambee’s midfielders too much space during the match.

With 15 minutes remaining, Keira Plumb made a good run through the middle of the park and was taken down just outside the box. Rachel Obertuler then levelled the scores from the freekick.

Kylie McDonald finished off an impressive performance with the winner and a hatrick to give the Bombers a deserved lead, though it was a sucker-punch for Coffs United who surrendered a much needed 3 points.
