Offensive Coordinator Neale McMaster was pleased with the progression of his offense’s running game in Sunday’s win over the Doncaster Mustangs.
The Eagles beat the Mustangs 13-12 at the Keepmoat Stadium on Sunday, in a game which saw plenty of turnovers – including five interceptions by the Eagles defense.
Speaking after the game McMaster said:
It was a tough defensive battle and ultimately our defense won us the game, something that I think will stand us in good stead moving forward.
We showed some progression on offense from last week, and our running game looks to be consistently good, which is a huge jump from last season.
The Eagles are back in BAFANL action this Sunday with a home games against the Nottingham Caesars. It will be the team’s third game is successive weeks, but Coach McMaster says he can see definite positives in the tough early schedule:
The benefit to playing three games in a row is that we can develop some momentum and team chemistry, and I think these two away trips have definitely helped in those regards.
These are the core elements of a championship side, and I firmly believe if we keep improving, that’s exactly what we will be.
