DRAW FOR EAGLES
Serbian White Eagles played in their eight game of the CSL and came out with a draw 1:1 (1:1). It was a difficult visit at SC Waterloo, and inevitably it broke a series of four consecutive victories. The Eagles were disadvantaged by the absence of Jocic, Bojic, and Strunjas, but they left a very good impression. In a high quality, interesting and fair game, we had the better team, who were actually closer to winning. We deservingly had the lead, along with a penalty at the beginning of the second half, and continued to create great pressure and discomfort for the opponents at the last fifteen minutes of the game. For the Eagles, there was another youngster making his debut, seventeen-year-old Ivan Nikolic, a product of the Eagles academy, and he left a remarkable impression. Eagles after their eighth game are first in the table, still undefeated.
