McMaster on the Mustangs

19 Apr

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.
