The Marco Optimist Eagles continue to battle, but just can’t get their first win. Both teams have home games on Saturday at Winterberry Park.
Here are coaches comments:
Pee Wee Coach
The Pee Wee Eagles traveled to First Baptist on Saturday to play the White team. The game was not one to remember for the team as the score was the largest of any Eagle loss.
First Baptist was able to score several times and ran the score up to 26 before the Eagles could get a score on the board. As the fourth quarter started winding down the Eagles finally found the end zone with a 50 yard run by Cooper Nettles and the extra point run by Ryan Wallace. Final score First Baptist 26, Marco 7.
The Eagles are at home for the last time on Saturday, playing at 9 a.m.
Jim Prange, Junior Coach
The Junior Marco Eagles traveled to First Baptist to take on the Beacons. I was incredibly proud of the heart and effort shown by the team. It was by far one of our best games of the year.
Our whole offensive front line (Yemerson, Kelly, Warren, Jordan, Pierce and Ethan) did a great job, allowing for some good runs by Tanner Prange and a great reception from Will Glasser to Sean Henell.
There was a total team effort on defense and as always weekly game-saving tackles by Andrew Sprankle and a super interception and return by Logan Gross. All in all they fell short 12-0, but kept their heads high.
We are going up against strong competition every week, but continuing to improve. The Eagles have their final home game on Saturday at Winterberry Field. Game time, 11 a.m. We hope the community will come out and support their weekend warriors.
