Best on ground were Chris, Jarred, and Coops. Justin and the Bens had very good games, and David, Gavin, and Danny showed great improvement and contributions.

Florida Redbacks V Baltimore Washington Eagles

In the first EAFL game of the season, Baltimore Washington traveled south to Sarasota to take on the Florida Redbacks. With little preparation done by the Eagles and a number of key players missing, the Eagles found themselves in quite the web of trouble as the Redbacks moved the ball well through the packs and pounded the Eagles' goal line with spectacular mark after mark.

Coach Trevor's Comments

What an awesome entry into the Southeast competition with a thrilling Florida Redbacks win over a strong Atlanta Kookaburras team. Atlanta played convincingly to a 23 point advantage at half time, but Florida was determined to regroup, fight back and keep running hard to pull close by three quarter time and keep the offensive power intense while pushing ahead to a 14 point win. Preparation and training for this game was great, and the players are to be congratulated for achieving our first goal of the season, winning the Australia Day Boomerang Trophy on this second annual Australia Day Battle. Thanks to our families and fans for their personal and vocal support of the Redbacks and to Scott the umpire for his dedication to a fair and healthy development of our club in USFooty competition. Thanks also to our friendly rivals the Atlanta Kookaburras who have been our unfailing support in team development in Florida. Without their contributions and enthusiasm we would not have been able to develop as a team so quickly to this point in our second season.
Go Redbacks!!!!!!!!!
