Eagles headed to Women’s State Cup

July 12th, 2018

BOAMBEE will be taking on the best teams from across the Northern NSW region this weekend as part of the TAFE NSW Women’s State Cup.

The Eagles earned their spot in the top level competition by winning last year’s Women’s 1st Division title and head to the Lake Macquarie Fields in Newcastle in form having been undefeated so far in 2018.

The Eagles will meet Warners Bay, Wallsend and University Women in their three shortened group matches on Saturday and if they finish in the top two of their group, will progress through to Sunday’s knockout finals.

Boambee coach Glenn Bennett admits he hasn’t seen any of the Eagles’ opponents first hand but he’s still got some good intel he can use in preparation.

“A couple of the girls in the team played against them in Newcastle last year as part of the North Coast Football team,” Bennett said.

“They’ve given us an idea of what we might be able to expect when we play against them.”

The limited knowledge could prove to be a strength though as it will allow Boambee to play the game plan that has proven so successful for them for so long.

“We’ll just play our normal style and see how we come up,” the coach said.

“That’s really all we can do and maybe change things on the run if we have to.”

The Eagles haven’t lost a game since the midpoint of the 2016 season and Bennett believes the State Cup will be just what his team needs.

“It will be good preparation for the finals to have a few hard games,” he said.

“I must admit I’m a believer that you’ve got to lose some games to learn an improve so I think it will be good for the girls to go down there and have a few close matches.
