Eagles Soar to Emphatic Win

RUISLIP Eagles continued their domination of the English Women’s League with an emphatic 33-17 victory over Thames at Leyton SCORE Centre in London on Saturday.

The unbeaten leaders of the table, Ruislip were 17-9 ahead by half time and extended their lead to 33-17 by the final whistle with Telek scoring 11 times, while Papenfuss and Dreksler scored six apiece.

And on the same day, Olympia edged past Cambridge 23-19 to gain revenge for the one-point defeat they suffered to their rivals back in October.

Ahead by just three at half time, Olympia defended well after the break to hold on to their lead. With just the bare seven players available, Cambridge did well to battle through the full hour, and Agi Foglein ended as top-scorer with eight goals, while Ekler scored six and Friggieri five for Olympia.

Finally, former league champions Great Dane could only secure a 23-23 draw with this season’s newcomers Deva, the Chester side proving they are learning fast with a well-deserved point which leaves them second in the table.

The next round of women’s matches are on April 2, when old rivals Ruislip Eagles take on Great Dane. Despite being at opposite ends of the table, the Eagles will be taking nothing for granted.

And on the same day, Thames take on Olympia.
