Eagles perform well in TAFE NSW Women’s State Cup

July 16th, 2018

BOAMBEE didn’t reach the knockout stages of the TAFE NSW Women’s State Cup played in Newcastle on the weekend but can hold their heads high.
The Eagles started the tournament strongly with an impressive victory over University Women.
Boambee opened the scoring through Jasmine Kruger in only the third minute which was followed by a Kylie McDonald which was secured in a powerful nine minute burst to give the Eagles girls a 4-0 half time lead.
A late goal by Siobhan Deam gave Boambee plenty of confidence for its next match against Warners Bay which sits on top of the strong Herald Women’s Premier League competition in Newcastle and entered the tournament as the defending champion.
The Eagles lost that encounter 3-1 but with eight minutes remaining against the powerhouse team only trailed 1-0.
Keira Plumbe scored late for Boambee to make the score 2-1 but conceded a very late goal while chasing an equaliser.
Fellow Herald Women’s Premier League team Wallsend was up next at the end of a long day and proved too strong for the Eagles winning 2-0 with player of the tournament Libby Copus-Brown opening the scoring after quarter of an hour.
Having finished third in their group, the Eagles returned on Sunday to compete in a play-off match against the Thornton Redbacks.
The Play-Off rounds were next, with the teams that failed to qualify the quarter-finals on Day Two taking to the field.
Boambee began the brighter of the two teams, troubling the defence with Kylie McDonald and Siobhan Deam creating a number of chances.
However, it took the Eagles until the second half to find the back of the net courtesy of Kathleen Vail in the 35th minute.
The game looked destined for a Boambee victory until Redbacks player Alexandra Field unleashed a stunning long-range effort, sending the game into penalties.
The momentum was with the Redbacks as they went on to win 5-4 on penalties.
