On Saturday the youngest Eagles team closed out the season, playing for third place in the league.

After getting the ball first, the Eagles started out flat and were soon down by seven points. After a quick series of plays the Eagles turned over the ball and First Baptist put another seven points on the scoreboard.

The second score seemed to be the alarm clock the Eagles needed to wake up. As the clock ticked down in the first half the Eagles started a great drive down the field with passes and runs heading for the goal line. As the time grew short the team went into a hurry-up offense, running four quick plays, getting ever so close to scoring.

While the First Baptist team could not stop the Eagles, time could. Time ran out in the half to end the drive.

Opening the second half, the Eagle defense held the Beacons. The Eagles then drove down the field and with passes from Will Glasser to Cody Webb, followed up by Logan Gross’s run, and the Eagles got on the scoreboard.

The Eagles played great football this week and wide receiver Cody Webb, quarterback Will Glasser and running back Logan Gross combined for more than 150 yards. The team played inspired football, but fell short, 14-6.

The youngest Eagle team would like to thank all the coaches, parents and volunteers who helped make this a great season for all the kids.

Coaches from the junior and senior teams did not report their results.
