Two three-goal hauls from Woodville West Torrens’ Angus Menta and Tate Wolthers helped the Eagles record a 41-point victory over Norwood at Norwood Oval in Round 6 of the SANFL U16s.

To add to his three, Wolthers also racked up 29 disposals, with the Eagles well supported around the ground by Jack Marks who had 22 disposals and 29 hitouts and Lachlan Marshall-Bates with eight rebound 50s to add to 21 disposals of his own.

A tight first half saw the Eagles only leading by 11 points at half-time, but a strong five-goal-to-two third quarter helped the Eagles to their second win of the season, with Norwood still searching for their first win of the season.
