THE Mansfield Eagles made the long trip to Echuca on Saturday, only to come home with a narrow three-goal loss in a tough scrap.

Before the game, coach Simon Dolling was expecting a strong showing from the Murray Bombers, but put much trust in the youngsters to get the Eagles across the line.

“They have been a real shining light for us and they will have another opportunity here,” he said.

“The Bombers will look at our last three results and think this is a great chance for a win at home.

“We will need to make sure we are putting plenty of pressure on them.”

However, the longest road trip in the GVFL takes a bit out of the players as it did with the Eagles.
