A narrow loss and a draw to start the i98FM Wollongong Touch Premier League, Albion Park have registered its first win against the highly fancied Dapto Canaries.

The tries were shared amongst the Eagles with 7 players touching down in the 8-5 win, former Aussie Mixed Open star Dean Springfield making a memorable debut.

‘He made a huge difference for our side’ said Captain Kyle Williams. ‘His sense of calmness and direction was exactly what we were missing in the opening rounds.’

Taj Ford was also a stand out in the Eagles 3 try win, before turning his focus to Gerringong’s Group 7 Under 18 Grand Final this Sunday.

In other results Thirroul and Wests Illawarra bounced back with victories, while Jamberoo hold top spot making it 3 from 3.

In the Women’s Premier League, Stingrays of Shellharbour remain unbeaten after an impressive 7-3 result over Corrimal. Defending premiers Woonona hit their straps with a 7-1 statement against the Lions and the Superoos held off Dapto 3 nil.
