The Eagles have landed as Boambee women snare minor premiership

September 1st, 2021

Boambee Eagles are well pleased after easing away to the North Coast Football Women’s 1st Division minor premiership – but like other clubs, are now pondering the ‘what ifs’ of a finals series if one is played.
After losing their opening fixture to Urunga, the Eagles didn’t drop another game – finishing the regular season a commanding nine points clear.
Premiers is recognition for the the best team across a season but when it comes to finals football, every qualifier has a chance.
Boambee coach Neil Witherdin said “the plague has come at the wrong time for us because we had momentum”.
“Urunga – they’re a a team of footballers whereas our girls just like hanging out together and playing for one another as no one wants to let the others down.
“The break hasn’t done us any favours.”
Neil said the points table was somewhat deceiving.
“We’ve both had players out so it was hard to know where we were at. But the last game against Urunga we were at home and won 4-1 and they had all players on deck bar one, and we had three out.”
Neil said all of the finalists, including Woolgoolga and Maclean, had the chance to progress in the knockouts.
“Our girls certainly want to play. I’m just hoping commonsense will prevail because we’ve got no cases (of COVID) here.”
