The Toronto Eagles head to the nation’s capital this weekend, where they will face the in-form Ottawa Swans.
The Eagles will be looking to get their first victory in Ottawa since 2011, as years of poor travels have seen them dealt some ugly defeats by the Swans on home soil. The Eagles are hanging on to third place on the ladder, and will be desperate to keep themselves there. The Swans on the other hand, have been in solid form all season and could go a long way in locking up top spot with a win over the Eagles this weekend.
With a win being so important for both sides, this is set to be a classic match up. Always a hard fought contest between these two proud clubs, expect this one to be more of the same.
WHERE AND WHEN: Manotick Polo Club, Saturday, July 27, 2:00pm

1. With the midfield starting to gel, a solid defense and a scoring options presenting themselves up forward, the Eagles will be looking to continue their solid play from the last round and maybe steal a precious away win.
