Oceanside’s Over45 Shady Rest Eagles brought lots of jump to the pitch in Qualicum on Sunday, as they unveiled their brand new strips in a 3-2 win over the Campbell River Masters.

The Eagles were controlling the play and took a comfortable 2-nil lead into the break, but the visitors replied with two goals of their own in the first 15 minutes of the second half.

Shady Rest ran with it from there on out and Keith Watson scored the winner with about 15 minutes remaining when he broke down the right side and slotted it low right corner.

As for the new unies, the local club has ditched the bright yellow jerseys they have gone with since its inception some 25 years ago, and have gone with an international flair featuring blue and white vertical stripes.

“Niiiiice … very Argentinian-esque, and quite slimming as well,” someone piped up on the sidelines.
