THE Albion Park-Oak Flats Eagles made it two wins on the trot on Saturday, when they outlasted the Berry-Shoalhaven Magpies 36-12 at Centenary Field.
The evening's scoring was opened by winger Kane Ball, who stepped inside his man to score, after receiving a sharp cut-out pass from halfback James Bower-Scott.
Soon after their first try, the Eagles appeared to be in again down their right edge before Magpies winger Brent Marando intercepted a Drew Butterfield pass on his own 10 metre line and ran 90 metres to score.
Josh Ingold converted to give the Magpies a 6-4 advantage.
That lead was soon extended when the Magpies kept the ball alive, through passes between Luke Ryder, Joe Rogers and Blake Dryden - which led to the skipper crossing over for the visitors' second.
Five-eighth Ingold made no mistake with the boot and the score was 12-4.
But this joy was short-lived for the Magpies, as the hosts then clicked into gear.
Hooker Brent Wake first set up lock Josh Sainsbury before the former again through the final pass in Butterfield's try, which saw the Eagles regain the lead 14-12 following one conversion from Bower-Scott - which is how it remained until the break.
The second half was all one way traffic for the Eagles, as Luke Patten first put centre Isaac Parkes over, which was followed by the other centre Blake Jones scooting down the short side to score - which saw the score move to 24-12 following Bower-Scott's kick.
With the wind well and truly in their sails, the Eagles capped the match off with two more tries to Ball, the first following a perfectly weighted kick from Bower-Scott and the second coming off the back off a scrum - before Jones scored his second in the final few minutes to wrap up the 36-12 win.
