GALLERY | Reserves thrill in score draw

With no senior games this weekend, we take a look at the best pics from last week’s Reserves fixture against Yarraville FC.

Somehow, the Essendon Royals conspired against themselves to turn a game they should have won into a thrilling 2-2 draw.

After a tight first half finished 1-1, the Royals put in a huge second half shit.

The Royals were spolied for chances, especially in a dominant second half, but failed to add to Alexander Eshak’s wonder goal early in the half.

The Royals entered the final third almost at will but could not find the back of the net despite a string of chances.

Yarraville scored late to equalise meaning the Royals had to settle for a share of the spoils.

After nine games, the Royals sit in fifth on the table with 15 points, but have played a game less than the teams ahead of them.

Here are some of the best pics from the game.
