The Marco Eagles suffered tough losses on Saturday.
Here are the coaches reports.
Eddie Webb, pee wee coach
On Saturday Marco smash-mouth football made a stop at Winterberry Park for the Pee Wee Eagles team. After reviewing the game film, the hitting from both teams showed how determined each team played.
After coming off of two scoreless games the Pee Wee team was looking to put some points on the scoreboard. On the first drive the Eagles went to the air, completing 4-of-4 pass attempts. The ground game was also moving the ball ever closer to the first touchdown of the season.
The ice breaker was an 18-yard pass from Will Glasser to Jason Lang (game MVP) that put the Eagles on the board.
While the First Baptist team was able to stop the extra point attempt, the Eagle’s spirits were soaring high. The Eagles defense was able to hold First Baptist from scoring until the third quarter after several key penalties gave the First Baptist team a free 30-yard drive. After First Baptist scored and got the point after attempt to take the lead, the Eagles lost momentum on offense.
However, the Eagles defense was able to hold First Baptist from scoring again. While the final score was Eagles 6, First Baptist 7, the Pee Wee team is now assured they can compete and are re-energized as we go into this week’s game. While only a few names were mentioned this week, all the players are to be congratulated for the effort they put in, not only this game but so far this season. Pee Wee Eagles play First Baptist team 1 at Community School of Naples at 9 a.m., Saturday.
