The Eagles have just landed back-to-back premierships!
Woodville-West Torrens Football Club was crowned the 2021 SANFL Statewide Super League premiers at Adelaide Oval on Sunday, adding a two-year premiership streak to their name for the first time in club history.
Their early dominance within the first quarter saw the Glenelg Tigers rattled, as the Eagles took an easy 18-point lead at the end of the first quarter.
The Tigers, who were clear favourites coming into the finals, started their season with 17 consecutive wins, yet their loose structure within the final saw the Eagles fight and composure walk all over them.
Jack Hayes, Eagles attacker, was a clear showstopper during the game, creating an impressive stats sheet for himself with 26 disposals, nine marks, seven clearances, three tackles and making a dent on the scoreboard.
His dominate performance cleared the way for him to win the Jack Oatey medal, polling 27 votes, followed by Riley Knight who polled 11 votes.
The game rallied a crowd of nearly 23,000 people at Adelaide Oval, many of which latter littered the city with the Woodville-West Torrens colours after their adored team won by a whopping 67 points, leaving the score 99-32.
The win on Sunday will put the Eagles in a prime position to gain a number of rising stars for their team whilst adding to the 4 flags they have earned since forming in 1991, after Woodville and West Torrens football club joined forces.
