The Eagles faced a young and well-organised Mansfield side who started the game the better.

The Eagles managed to end the half much more aggressive, with Mathew Martin providing a much-needed lift for the team as they went in 50-38 up.

The second half saw Paul Walsh and Elijah Walsh find their form with the former scoring 15 of the Eagles’ 30 points in the third quarter and Elijah Walsh also scoring at will.
