NY Magpies are 2009 EAFL Champions

EAFL Champs

The Magpies sewed up the 2009 EAFL Premiership this Saturday by taking down Boston at home at Tibbetts Brook Park.  In extremely muddy conditions reminiscent of June’s slosh-fest against Baltimore-Washington, the home team kept the visitors goalless, taking control of the game in the second half after a rousing speech from coach Rob Oliver.  This is the Pies’ first top-of-the-ladder finish in the EAFL since 2005, ousting reigning champions for the past 2 years, the Baltimore-Washington Eagles.

The Pies dedicated the victory to club stalwart and former president Doug Lewis, who celebrated his 100th game on Saturday – no small achievement in a league that plays only about 10 games a year!  Congratulations to Dougie, a true Magpie Legend, on his fantastic achievement.
