THE Boambee Eagles have gone to outright second spot on the ladder with a 3-0 win at home against the Macleay Valley Rangers, during Round 14 of the Coastal League One Women season.
The win was the Eagles first against the Rangers this season, after a draw in their first meeting of the season at Ayrshire Park, and the Rangers getting the three points in their most recent meeting at Kempsey.
The Eagles have moved from fourth to second on the ladder after three wins and a draw in recent weeks.
Eagles coach Neil Witherdin said it was their best performance of the season.
“I’m happy with how we played and it was the best we’ve played this year,” he said.
“It was the first time this year we’ve had out top middle 5, and it made a huge difference.
“I’m really happy with the result, and it was really nice to finally get a result from Macleay Valley as we’ve found them difficult.”
The Eagles coach was also pleased with keeping the visitors scoreless.
“It was a nice to have a clean sheet as we haven’t had many this year, especially against a side as fast and dangerous as them,” he said.
The Coffs City United Lionesses and Sawtell Scorpions shared the points in Round 14 with a 1-1 draw at Forsyth Park.
The draw was the Scorpions second point of the season and the first time they have taken points from three meetings with the Lionesses this season.
