THE Gawler Eagles got them-
selves into a winnable position in
State League soccer on the week-
end before conceding three sec-
ond-half goals to go down 1-3 to
The Eagles were on fire in the first
half and looked every bit the better
side, with Cameron Gliese playing an
important role through the midfield.
In his first game back from a three-
week suspension, Armstrong Gaye
found the back of the net to put his
side in front before half-time.
"It was the best we have ever
played," Eagles' coach Ray Deeley
"They (Olympic) never even looked
As is often the case with the Eagles,
the break interrupted their rhythm
and it was a different side that took
the field in the second period.
"I hate half-time because we always
go to sleep," Deeley said.
"We stopped running and we start-
ed to dribble."
Olympic scored the next three goals
of the match to take control, one of
which came from a penalty.
Despite the loss, there were still
positives for Gawler, with Gaye near-
ly scoring again and the team setting
up a number of other scoring oppor-
It was only the Eagles' inability to
finish that prevented them from surg-
ing back into the game and Deeley
praised his charges' ability to keep up
"We kept pushing and we kept go-
ing," Deeley said.
"From 1-3 down, we could have ac-
tually salvaged something."
Goalkeeper Sasa Trbovic was an-
other Gawler player who impressed,
thwarting a number of the opposi-
tion's forward forays.
The under 18s had a much better
day, producing one of their best per-
formances in recent memory to post a
5-1 win over Olympic.
The Gawler Eagles women had an-
other big win, defeating UniSA 7-2 to
take outright top spot on the division
The Eagles have made a phenom-
enal start to the season and are unde-
feated after seven rounds, booting a
total of 50 goals and conceding only
Melissa Chomik was the star on the
weekend, scoring four goals, and Ash-
leigh Chomik found the back of the
net four times.

Magpies show depth
AN undermanned Tanunda

win over Angaston-Moculta
United in the Barossa Valley
Hockey Association on the
Missing walk-up starters Steve
Crawford, Tim Dolan, Raph
Thompson, Adam Sloane and
Ryan Hanlon, the Magpies
showed they have plenty of depth
with a complete performance.
They controlled the game from
the outset and led 2-0 at half-
time, with Josh Hancock, Ryan
Muirhead and Oscar Bowan
leading the way.
Despite the best efforts of
United players Daniel Wall and
David Jamieson, Tanunda forged
further ahead after the break in
a performance that pleased play-
ing-coach Graham Sexton.
"It was a good opportunity
for some players to step up and
they did, which was nice," Sex-
"We combined well as a unit
and finally gelled as a team.
"The individualism went out
the window and we played good
"We ran hard for one another
and it paid off."

captain Daniel Gogoll were the

killing run in the A women com-
petition, knocking of United 2-1

United started the game the
better and put the Gawler back-
line under pressure early, but
Kate Muirhead stood tall, calmly
repelling a number of attacks.
With Jessica Szulc winning
clearances in the midfield and
halves Janet McIntyre and Cour-
tenay Wilson closing out the
United strikers, Gawler began
to get on top and took the lead
when Jessica Mensforth convert-
ed a short corner.
Trailing by a goal at the half,
United upped the tempo and
tried everything to square up the
However, it was Gawler which
again found the back of the net,
with Chelsea Broadhurst setting
up Aoife Rutley to put it up 2-0.
United then pulled back a goal
and pushed hard for an equal-
iser in the dying minutes, but
the Gawler defence, assisted by
Claire Donaldson and Nicole
Stubing, held out.
Nuriootpa proved far too
strong for Tanunda in the other
match, winning 3-0 on the back
of two goals to Emma Mullins
and a single to Miranda Dixon.
