Eidsvold Eagles defeat Kingaroy Red Ants at home game

THE Eidsvold Eagles defeated the Kingaroy Red Ants at a home game on Saturday night.

The North Burnett team won 34 to 26.

Eagles coach Blake Popp said it was a much needed win for the team.

"It was a good win, we needed those two points," Popp said.

"It will advantage us a lot for the rest of the year."

Popp said the team still had a lot to work on.

"We've got to get our structure right, there was a lot of lost play," he said.

"People were in the wrong positions at the wrong time, but over time we'll work that all out."

The Red Ants started the game strong, scoring the first try of the game, but they only had 10 players.

Red Ants coach Darren Geiger said he was "extremely happy" with how the 10 players performed. 

"Unfortunately the game times kept getting changed on us and we ended up not being able to field anywhere near a full-strength team," Geiger said.

"For 10 players it was a pretty good effort.

To come up here and they have a fairly strong side and to only go down by eight points late is good, especially when we did the two and a half hour trip as well."
