THERE were wins all round for the Leeton Eagles in their round three clash against the Narrandera Knights on the weekend.
The women's side notched up their second consecutive win of the MIA League season, while the men picked up their first.
It was a resounding 64-45 victory for the women, who will now go into this weekend's clash with Griffith with plenty of confidence.
Coach Josh Clyne said with more players in the squad for the game against Narrandera, the Eagles were ready to go from the outset.
"Our offensive transition was really good," he said.
"We were able to fast break on our opposition quite a bit, which helped.
"We had a much bigger squad of players, a couple of key players came back in, so that really helped us as well."
