NORTH Warrnambool Eagles are within two games of third spot on the Hampden league ladder after a 10-goal third-term blitz destroyed Camperdown on Saturday.

The Eagles’ 20.10 (130) to 12.10 (82) victory, coupled with South Warrnambool’s shock loss to Terang Mortlake, has given them hope of pinching a double chance come finals.

But Eagles co-coach Graeme Twaddle said consistency was needed to strive for that result.

“We need to find consistency – we did it against Cobden for four quarters and yesterday we only played a half of the football we went to play,” he said.

The Eagles were 10 points down at half-time after struggling to contain the Magpies, led by the influential Cam Spence and four-goal forward Isaac Stephens.

“They were really clean around the contest and quick out of the contest as well,” Twaddle said.

“Their transition footy was really good quality.”
