Eagles game 5 will be tomorrow at 12:15 when the Eagles play the Rattlers again in the tournament final. At worst we will go home with second place. The Rattlers play early tomorrow morning, and while they don't have a strong opponent they will have to play the whole game to beat Saugerties. Hopefully that will mean our fresh legs will give us a reasonable chance at beting the Rattlers.
